Chronic Illness Blogging
I’ve always been torn between blogging about my chronic illness and blogging about family fun and great ideas. I started out with this blog Days In Bed and then switched to The Inspiration Edit. At one point I tried to run both blogs at the same time and struggled a lot. It was just really difficult to do and so I gave up. However I am not a quitter, I am a fighter and I don’t want to give up. I want this blog to be a success along with my family fun blog The Inspiration Edit.
Today I joined a few chronic illness groups. One was really nice and the other was quite snooty. In fact, my post was deleted. I wondered what I had done wrong. I did not break any rules and the only conclusion I could come to was that someone must be jealous of my success as a blogger. However for me it’s not about that. Yes I want to be successful but, I want to raise awareness and share how I manage and cope but so often I feel too ill and it is difficult.
I decided to stuff the person who so rudely deleted me and it spurred me on to talk to my husband about maybe trying once more to give this blog another shot. I really do want to run two blogs as hard as it may be. I realise they don’t both have to be massive. This one can have a smaller social media following. It is okay. The point it not to be massive but to help the minority who suffer as I do and so with a push from my hubby I am starting again.
I am going to try and write at least once a week and see how it goes. I know I can do this as hard as it may be. I will succeed and so today it begins, a new chapter of Days In Bed. I can do this!
I’m nervous but I think the thing I need to do is not put pressure on myself. Just keep it to one post per week and maybe even not worry about social media for now. I’ll just write how I feel and let it out here and see what happens!
