Finding My Love For Blogging again and Getting Realistic About the Future
So uh….you may be a little shocked to actually see a post related to blogging around here. The truth is, I used to love writing about different aspects of blogging. How to grow your blog. What kind of content you should be making. You know, everything you see all over Pinterest. In all honesty, the only thing you can do is what works for you. I’m going to talk about finding my love for blogging again and what is next.
The Honest Truth
I think we have all heard of imposter syndrome right? If not, here is a great article that really sums it up. Even though I have been blogging on and off for around five years now, I always feel like I don’t know what I am doing. There is always something I can change. Someone is always doing something better.
When we moved into the new house in March, I had so many plans. I was going to create loads of content, constantly be busy, turn my blog into a business. Well…none of that has happened. If anything, I felt unsure about myself as a creator. That hurt.
Finding my love of blogging again did not happen overnight. As a matter of fact, I had to go through almost two personality changes to find it again. For those that have stuck around and continued reading thank you, and I’ll buy you a creme brûlée if we ever meet!
What I Was Doing Wrong
I was just so worried about everything TBH. Creating a business and increasing my income had taken the wheel. I was completely lost and just not being true to myself. That has honestly been a running theme in my life, it’s scary. In other words, I’ve spent a lot of time lost and confused.
Instead of thinking about my life and what I liked and wanted to do, I was too busy focused on what worked for others. We all see people thriving and decide that we could do what they do. Something that is important is that if you could have done it, you probably already would have done it.
What I’m Doing Now
No joke, just doing what I want to do. It sounds so stupid writing it out, but I’m just bored of trying to be anyone but myself. I’m bored of stressing out about what to put on Instagram. Why am I writing about things I don’t care about? As a result of this, I felt disconnected from what I was creating.
If you were around for my self-love journey earlier this year, then you probably know the importance of self-reflection and just listening to yourself for once. So, with that being said, I have a few things I want to cover quickly. Here are a few things that I want to focus on and center content around.
- Creating a slower-paced lifestyle
- Doing things with more meaning and intention
- Creating an uplifting and personalized space to live and thrive in
- Sharing fashion and beauty inspo that I love
- Showing my readers something that I think is cool and worth while
Now that my little rant is over, thanks for reading as always, it really does mean a lot to me as a creator. While I can’t make promises that the new year is going to be full of exciting content, you never know what I will put out of my hat. Anywhere, see you tomorrow to continue blogmas!
