Why I'm Not Doing Blogtober

I'm still in my first year of blogging, and as soon as September came there was a change in the atmosphere, a positive change. It would appear that, like me, most bloggers bloody love Autumn. All over Twitter bloggers were adding brown leaf emojis to their names and there was much talk about the latest seasonal trends, pumpkin spice lattes, Blogtober and Blogmas.

What are Blogtober and Blogmas I hear you ask? Well, basically Blogtober is when you publish a blog post everyday throughout October, and Blogmas is when you publish a post everyday between December 1st and December 25th. They both appear to be a popular concept, but I personally will not be taking part in Blogtober and it's unlikely that I'll partake in Blogmas. Why, I definitely DEFINITELY hear you ask?

Well, because simply put, I don't have the time this year.

It sounds like a cop out, I know it does, but in my defence I do juggle quite a bit already without putting the additional pressure on myself. I'm currently working overtime at work, and I likely will be working over my contracted hours now until after Christmas (I walked back into the shop after my week off and it's like Christmas came and threw up everywhere while I was gone). I'm also trying my best to make it to wrestling training as much as I can at weekends, although I'm currently not getting physical you can still learn bits and pieces by watching and it's good to stay in the loop. Alongside work and wrestling, my social life seems to have picked up in recent weeks and lord knows I would go insane without my social life (that sounds a lot sadder than it actually is I promise).

This time next year I would love to be in a position where I can put a lot more of my energy into blogging and then maybe I could challenge myself to complete Blogtober. But as it stands, I know that I wouldn't keep up with it and that, if I tried to do it, I would just end up beating myself up about it, and that's no fun.

Are you participating in Blogtober? Leave your links in the comments, I'm always looking for new blogs to read ^_^
