Kaffeinated Conversations

Hey BookLovers!

This is a weekly feature I have decided to start this year. It will include the books I read in the past week and my thoughts on current book trends and topics (including movies/series based on books) and the books I want to read. I also want to talk about what other book bloggers are sharing or their opinion on anything bookish. I just felt like as a book community it will be nice for everyone to gather around once in a while and share what they love so much – books!

 


 

Welcome to May! Its already four months to this year. I was reflecting about my blog sometime back ago and wondered what drives me to keep blogging cause the last week of April really put me off from reading. It wasn’t a book slump but not having the leisurely time to read. Plus I have like twenty five unread books and when I see them I get overwhelmed. How am I going to finish them? Especially the fantasy ones. They are so humongous and I am not that fast a reader. And the sheer amount makes me want to take a break except I don’t want to do that either. Its so easy to give up, isn’t it? Takes some effort to hold on.

So I was thinking why not make this my post for KC. I barely read much last month. And had no time to post anything for this feature though I managed yet it feels like am not doing enough. Sometimes I say to myself this online world is not real and not to take it so seriously. I feel like I am trying to stand on both boats and they are just floating further away. Does this happen to you? I started blogging as I wanted to put my thoughts out there but now I feel like its a compulsion to do so albeit in a good way but still like there’s a pressure to do so. 

I am trying to navigate this blog in a way that feels like it has a purpose. But in that process I feel like I have lost the real reason am blogging. But thankfully I do come back and remind myself not to get carried away although its kinda mentally exhausting to check all the boxes, if you know what I mean.

So what about you? Why did you start blogging? And what keeps you at it? Do you feel pressure or overwhelmed too? Please share in the comments below!

Cheers. XO.

  1. I totally agree with you, blogging can be really overwhelming sometimes and in the craziness of writing, scheduling, posting and even promoting I sometimes tend to forget the reason why I started to blog in the first place. Plus, I agree with the pressure as well, to always look out for what is trending currently and what other people are doing and what you can do to stand out.

    But, I also agree with you about constantly reminding myself about what’s Important and what’s not and I think having that self- awareness really helps.

    Fantastic Post!

    1. Thanks for sharing surbhi! 😃 It does feel good to know what other bloggers go through as well. It’s a great platform but nothing without the community that supports it! Thanks for stopping by! 💓

  2. When I began my blog, I vowed not to fall down the pressure rabbit hole and so far I’m holding true to my self promise. I only post when I’ve got something to share and try to keep it simple. I let my Sunday post go because it was getting stressful. I also don’t worry about my number of followers, more about finding other interesting blogs for ME to follow. It seems to be working…for me.

    I guess that all adds up to what YOU want from blogging and are your actions consistent with that desire.
