It’s been a while since I have actually sat down and planned what I wanted to write about, let alone actually enjoy typing it out. The last post I wrote I must admit was a bit of a flop, I liked the idea of ‘My Summer Wishlist Series’ but I just wasn’t in the right mindset to keep it going.
There was a lot going on, as per usual it was a lot to do with my mental health. I’ve suffered long enough to know how to deal with my feelings but the one symptom I can’t get control of is my loss of motivation (or as I like to call it – feeling sorry for myself).
I love blogging, I really do, but when I’m in a bad mental health space I can’t force it. When my head is covered by a dark cloud, I don’t want to share that feeling with you guys.
I want you to enjoy coming to my corner of the internet and reading my rambles.
I couldn’t think of anything worse than forcing a blog post out. I feel like you can always tell if someone didn’t enjoy writing something and it puts me off of reading it. I don’t want to spend my time reading something if the creator didn’t enjoy it either.
I’d love to say that I have the writing bug back but there’s no guarantee that I won’t have another bad spell. These things happen and I hope you all understand.
I don’t want to set myself blogging goals because I know there’s always a chance it won’t happen but I do want to improve on a few things;
I’m terrible at planning posts, whether it’s insta, my blog or scheduling tweets! I’m shit at it. So this is #1 on my ‘FIX YOUR BLOGGING GAME’ list.
I want to branch out with my photography. I’m going to see if I can get some help from Jay to get some ‘candid’ & ‘overly posed photos’. As well as trying to improve my flats lays! On the way, maybe I can turn him into an ‘Instagram Boyfriend’.
The main one for me is when I ‘have the idea of a ‘series’ yet there’s only ever one post.
I’m that person that will start a film and no matter how shit it is, will have to watch the whole thing through – so how can I not bloody get through a blog series?
I guess the moral of this story is that I am back for now, however, things can change and it’s possible that life will get in the way at some point, but just remember I do love blogging and even when I’m not blogging or in the mental state to blog, I am always thinking about it and missing creating content for you all!
Have you missed me?
