Why I Won't Write Monthly Wrap-Ups Anymore... (At Least for Now)

My blogging has been sporadic lately. I'll consistently blog for a few weeks, and then I'll go off the grid for months at a time. I want to blog, but I'm always held back by one main thing... My monthly wrap-ups. I HATE writing them. But I also hate not having them. I don't think that even makes sense so I'm turning to lists to help me out.

Why Monthly Wrap-Ups Hold Me Back 

1. I can't move on without them

If it's the beginning of September and I still haven't written an August wrap-up then I just won't write a post for September (or any month after that) until I'm up to date with my wrap-ups. How silly is that?!

2. I don't actually like writing them so I put it off

The end of the month rolls around and I know that I have to write a wrap-up, so everything becomes a reason not to blog. I'm too busy, I'm too tired, I can't be bothered, "Oops, I feel down a scrolling hole on twitter/youtube/instagram". I just have zero motivation. I think the way that I set them out is just too repetative and boring? I dunno, it's just not fun.

3. It's tooooo much pressure on myself

I'm at university full time and I work everyday on top of that so I want blogging to be something fun that I do, not something that I put off because I don't enjoy it.


Don't get my wrong, I love reading them and I even like my own once I've written them, but I just enjoy writing them how they are at the moment. Maybe one day I'll come back with a new and revamped style, but for now... Goodbye!

Did I just write an entire post on how I'm not going to write a certain type of post anymore? Yes I did. I had to acknowledge it for myself. Is there any type of post that you don't enjoy writing? Why do you still write them?
