So I thought I’d do a little update on my blog. I’ve really lost my mojo of late and since Christmas I’ve really struggled with the direction I want to take my blog.
I wrote a little post back in January about how I planned to change my blog, but to be honest nothing much has changed. In fact I’ve not posted much at all.
I’ve really got myself in a bit of vicious circle of where I want to take my blog, I’ve had so many different ideas whizzing round my brain but I am struggling to get them down on paper. I have been trying to back myself into a corner about what my niche should be. I started comparing myself and my blog to other more successful bloggers and influencers and really beating myself up about whether I am good enough. I have been very close to deleting the whole thing.
I’ve kind of just been letting things tick over and thinking about if I wanted to continue with my blog.
On speaking to my husband about it he had noticed I wasn’t spending as much time on my blog as normal. He said he thought I was silly if I gave up all my hard work I’d put in and I should continue as he knew how much I loved writing. It really made me stop, sit back and think what I actually love about my blog and how much I’ve learn’t along the way, but more importantly why I started it in the first place.
I’ve started to realise why I write and share so much, it’s my little escapism and where I can capture my everyday moments and family adventures. It’s where I can practice my love of photography and be the most creative in the photos I take. It’s where I can share and hopefully inspire you with my musings of all the things I love, It’s where we can look back on our family everyday moments and big events and live those times again.
So I’m going to stop the comparison game and putting myself down. Stop putting so much pressure on myself about how I write and get back on the horse as they say.
I think the best advise I’ve ever been given is to write like knowone is reading (maybe they’re not) but I still want to capture these moments for myself and continue to share it with you.
I really hope you stick around as normal routine will commence and I get back to writing about all the things I love.
Until next time
