No, blogging isn't all that bad. It can actually be quite rewarding, and for many years, it was. I LOVED it. I loved the blogging community and received a ton of support. People commented on posts and found them either informative or entertaining (a combination of both is A+).

Apparently, Blogging Blues is a real thing. I'm not the only one to experience it. If you're here because you, too, also have the blogging blues, take a look at a couple of these websites. I did, and I plan to put some of their ideas and suggestions to use. Hopefully, you will find something to help you find your blogging self again.
