Quitting blogging?

Seriously, I need to have a sit down and scold myself for being so slack with blogging.

I have some ideas for posts drafted, but actually sitting down to type them up, and trying to get out exactly what I want to say, is actually quite daunting. I don't have a plausible excuse, but what I will say is that when I get home from work, all I want to do is chill out. Perhaps it wouldn't be so bad if a post took me 20 minutes, but usually, it can take a few hours, which again is daunting. I tend to have a few tabs open on my laptop at the same time (bad idea I know), switch between them, make coffee, feed the cats, etc. See, pathetic 'excuses'! Part of me thinks I should give up blogging, as I don't feel like the content I put out (when I actually do it) is worthy of reading sometimes. Blogging can be stressful when you feel like you have pressure on you to post something. It's quite sad really, as I normally find blogging therapeutic and relaxing. I don't even know where this 'pressure' is coming from - I think I'm putting it on myself!

Work is quite stressful at the moment (my psoriasis flare up is great confirmation of this...), so honestly, blogging is the last thing I'm thinking about. Yet, at the same time, I don't want to be the type of blogger who blogs once every 6-8 weeks, which is ironic because that's what I've become. I'm just grateful I still have all of my followers, thank you all for sticking by my lazy ass.

This isn't the first time I've felt like this. I don't think it's bloggers' block; probably just laziness on my part, and like I said, blogging is the last thing on my mind right now. I don't want to just 'take a break', because I do wonder would anyone even read my posts if I came back.

Am I the only one who feels like this sometimes?

ETA: I will blog when I get a chance and get drafts typed up on my days off and/or evenings. I love blogging, so I don't particularly want to give up now. Thanks for staying with me <3
