I obviously still love a long title, somethings never change. I’ve been on and off with blogging for a while now, as you may have noticed by the scattered posting. This post is going to be my attempt at ‘chatty’, which tends to be more of a ramble. In all honesty I’m never sure if my chatty posts go down that well, but lets give it a try. This post is going to be a little update on where I’ve been and changes I’m making to enjoy blogging again.
So Let’s Have a Catchup: A Social Media Break and What I’ve Been Up To.
Lack of Motivation
By this I don’t mean not being bothered to blog; if anything I really wanted to be able to post. I just didn’t know what to post. Which meant it was pretty impossible to keep up. I’m pretty sure I know what caused it and that was going in with guns blazing. It wasn’t clever, and I burnt out quickly This time I’m going to take things slow and not put any unnecessary pressure on myself.
I used to post about a range of things, but just lately everything seems to be beauty related or monthly favourites. I’m not mad about monthly favourites, as I haven’t exactly been shy about saying they’re my favourite posts to write. I just want to do more than beauty all of the time. I’m going to try and start baking again, as I really enjoyed sharing the recipes I found and the results I had. I think I got carried away with being a strictly beauty blog, when thats not what I want anymore. Don’t get me wrong I’ll still be writing about beauty, but hopefully there should be more of a variety soon.
I really didn’t like my old theme, which I think contributed to feeling uninspired. After the whole Pipdig fiasco, I had no idea where to turn and where I ended up being too much of a struggle. Customising wasn’t as straight forward, and I had an issue with replying to comments. Which in all fairness probably could’ve been resolved, but they wanted my password, which I wasn’t willing to risk. I’ve now found a simple theme, that I’m enjoying and still trying to perfect.
At the end of June I went to Tenerife with my boyfriend and had an incredible time. A little holiday spam is happening over on Instagram too. I loved Tenerife and would 100% go back, but there is more to explore just yet. We’ve got more holidays in the pipeline and even booked the mystery £99 holiday with Wowcher.
That’s about all I wanted to touch on in this post. I’m looking forward to starting blogging again with this fresh mindset and I can’t wait to get back into things!
That was: Let’s Have a Catchup: A Social Media Break and What I’ve Been Up To.
