How Do You Keep The Music Playing?



I have this dilemma of whether I should renew this domain or not as it’s about to expire in a few days. I love my nick ‘gasolinedude’ ‘coz it sounds so cool and all, but as you can see, I haven’t been blogging for a long time so what’s the point of maintaining this site? Waste of money, right?

Blogging burnout? Probably. Blogging can be very stressful, and I’m not sure why. That should not be the case, right? LOL let me think… you know how other people would have high expectations of you, like update your blog regularly, read other people’s blogs and leave comments, or even organise blog events? It’s great at first ‘coz you’d feel that you’re somewhat needed, but I guess it already came to a point when I got tired of all of it.

Maybe I was also at fault. Though I knew that blogging is all about freedom of expressing and sharing to the whole world what you have, maybe… just maybe it came to a point when I was already blogging for the wrong reason, intention, and expectations.

Seriously, I want to go back. I miss a lot of things in and out of my own little kingdom here, but we’ll see…

One step at a time?


P.S. Where are the bloggers of my generation?!

  4. Blogging in general can be really stressful at times. With so many social media out there right now like facebook, twitter, and instagram, which one is more important than the others?

    For someone who's been blogging for over 8 years now, I had my share of blogging burnout. The constant reminder on what to write to keep the readers interested is always a concern. But at one point, I reminded myself of why I kept blogging all this time. It was to keep a journal for myself. Something that i can look back someday and share to my nieces and nephews. If a reader finds it interesting, that's great. If not, I'm ok with it.

    As one of my blogger friend who stopped blogging a year and half ago said, "I am taking a sabbatical for now. This is not a goodbye but a TTYL for now. I am not leaving the internet world completely. Just tweet me."

  9. Dude I've been having the same exact dilemma. I've been wondering if I should go on blogging. I've also been burned out and pretty much ran out of material. In my case, I also think "laos na ako." :D
