Whatever Happened to My Daily Blogging

What happened to my daily blogging?  Writer's block?  Writer's slump? 
Or is it because I've been dealing with a difficult situation that I can't blog about at this time because someone else is involved?
I suspect that it is all of the above.
I've also been neglecting my fan fiction... I have added a few lines to several of the stories I'm working on, and jotted down a
few ideas, but it's been a long time since I've published a new story or chapter.
