Reasons I can't blog tonight...

If you follow my blog, you are probably aware that I blog daily (Except for Sundays - bloggers need a day off too). It's currently 11pm and I'm sat at my laptop in despair because I don't have the material for a scheduled post. It's got me thinking of all the silly excuses us bloggers use to put off blogging. Blogging should be our hobby, not an extra stress, but I still managed to compile a list of excuses I find myself using to not write up that blog post ;)

  1. It's winter, therefore too dark, so I can't take any photographs after 4pm.
  2. I'm too tired to type anything.
  3. I need to go to bed at 10pm. Even though I won't sleep until 1am.
  4. If I start this post, I won't be able to watch the new American Horror Story.
  5. I hate every single photograph I planned to use in this post therefore the whole post must be deleted.
  6. I can't think of any alternative words to nice.
  7. No one will read this post which makes me nervous.
  8. Everyone might read this post which makes me nervous.
  9. I've posted something similar recently.
  10. My dog needs a walk this exact second I need to type up my blog post.
  11. I can't be bothered to edit photos tonight - maybe another time...
  12. It's another time and PicMonkey won't work! I'll do it later...
  13. I can't think of anything to write about (even though I have a whole schedule of posts so don't have to think)
  14. The TV is on so I am too distracted.
  15. I'll start in 5 minutes...
Anyone else guilty of using these excuses?
I love blogging but I often find myself telling my brain these are reasons I can't blog. I have to remind myself that blogging is my hobby, I choose the pace of the content and it is just lazy if I don't put up my scheduled post. Many bloggers put themselves under a load of unnecessary strain to get content on their blog when really it's more important to be posting things you want to talk about. Remember, it's your blog and, if you fancy some time off, treat yourself to it!

 Hope this silly list made some of you giggle :)


  1. I use every excuse imaginable, trust me!! hahahaha!

  2. I think we're all guilty of it! I also personally like "I just need to finish this episode... and the three after that... nope now we're back to it being too dark to take photographs"

    Sammy xo.

  3. The excuses made me giggle. I think we have to remind ourselves we are human and are allowed a break. I'm always doing the let me just finish this video or episode then I'll crack on haha. Great post lovely.

  4. I think I always make excuses to read other blogs rather than writing sometimes!! (ie right now...) but I do always get around to it eventually :) x

  5. I can definitely see myself using some of these excuses!

    I post once a week since I have just started blogging, this means I have 6 days to think of a new post :) i.e. planning and photographs. I don't think I could post everyday... far to much stress especially on-top of assignment work x
