Hey loveliess, I hope you’re all warm and well!
Recently, I’ve taken a back step from blogging. Now, there’s a good reason behind this. To be completely honest, I was bored of it. Bored of creating the same old content week in, week out. Publishing posts just for the sake of having something up. Guess you could say, I fell out of love with blogging. That’s something that makes me so sad. So, I’ve decided, A change is coming.
Taking a step back.
What people don’t really understand is that behind the scenes of blogging, there’s a lot of pressure. Trying to keep up with latest trends, having the newest products to talk about. Posting on Instagram every day while making your whole grid look pretty. It can take hours to put together a post. From brainstorming idea’s, shooting images, editing, writing and promoting. Blogging isn’t my full time job. I actually work full time in a day nursery as a room leader. Helping to care for and develop tiny humans. That in itself takes a lot of energy. Trying to juggle that with blogging as well as friendships, house work, being a good wife and making sure that I’m actually alright. I got a bit much you know. So I took a step back and that’s when I started to realise I wanted to make some changes.
How can I do better?
I’ve been really reflective of everything lately. Who I am, where I’m going and what I want to achieve. That’s being said on a more personal level, but in terms of blogging, the same things apply. Where is this blog going? How can I do better?
I could sit for hours and tell you all about the latest palettes to launch in the drugstore. I could tell you all about the wonderful hair care products I’m using. But to me, at the moment, that kind of content has no substance. No real relevance. No meaning, and it just doesn’t really matter. Although make up and beauty is a massive passion of mine, I don’t feel like I can continue writing about that stuff all the time.
So, a change is coming, I’ve thought a lot about the things that are important to me, and important to others. I want this blog to be personal, stripped back and relatable. I have a voice and a platform of over 8000 people and I’ve done nothing really constructive with it.
What to expect in 2019?
That being said. In the new year, my blog is going to relaunch. With a new a new look, layout and vibe. I think it’s time. I’ve started jotting down idea’s for content already and I’m really excited to get started. Over the next few months, I’ll be researching a lot of different topics that also hold my interest. Topics that are so important for us all to know more about and hopefully speaking more openly with you all. I want to create conversation about things that we all go through and deal with on a daily basis!
Here are some of the topics you can expect me to cover
Women’s health issues.
My everyday life.
My posts here will be minimal running up to the new year, but you can keep an eye out on my Instagram (where I recently broke my clean white flatlay theme).
In the meantime, my contact page is always open. I would love it if you guys had any feedback on my re-launch ideas. Any topics you want to see covered or if you just need someone to talk to. Hit me up. I adore hearing from you guys.
I’m so excited to get going with these fresh new idea’s and I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
Thank you so much for your continued support, I wouldn’t be here without you!
Kisses and Love
