5 Things that distract you from blogging (apart from work, family & housework)

For quite some time, I have not been blogging as much as I used to. I began the draft for this post way back in August 2022. That shows you how things have been with me blog – wise.

My List:

Instagram, Pinterest & Wordscapes

When I first launched my blog, WhatsApp and YouTube were the only ways that I used the Internet (apart from Google search). Once I made Instagram and Pinterest accounts, I found them to be very tempting rabbit holes to fall into. Naturally, this eats into my blogging time ĺ0l0l0l0lqqwhenever I succumb to the temptation.


In my life, writing/blogging takes a backseat when it comes to reading. A gripping psychological thriller or a comfortable cosy mystery can keep me from my blog if I get engrossed.

Movies and TV

My family is really into TV and movies. At times, I can blog on my phone as I watch. But there are times when I get so engrossed that I can’t do this.

Bad habits

Procrastination, self doubt , sheer laziness.


Births, deaths, and marriages.” If there are a lot of social obligations on a weekend, my blog suffers

Does anything get in the way of your blogging too? Do let the rest of us know.

  1. Hmm. Work would be at the top of my list … particularly since I’ve so much to do right now. Beyond that,I’d really just say my health or the health issues of family and if I start playing The Sims on my pc


  2. It took all afternoon, but I got it done. It will be up tomorrow morning. I probably could have re-titled this to, “What does NOT distract me” from blogging?” It would have been a lot shorter!
