Hey loveliess, I hope you’re well!
If you’re a regular reader, you’d have noticed I’ve been a bit MIA lately. I decided to take a break from blogging. It was unplanned, just kind of happened. In the last two weeks, I’ve reflected upon my journey so far and wondered why I stopped opening the laptop and writing.
I started blogging back in September ’16, as a way to keep busy while Shane and I saved hard for our house. I never anticipated I’d fall in love with it like I did, and I was hooked from day one. I constantly looked for ways to improve my writing and create new refreshing content. It took up almost all of my spare time and I found myself getting a tad overwhelmed with it all. I put to much pressure on myself to compete with everyone else and make a name for myself. I guess over the last few months the pressure built and it became to much to maintain. I found myself creating content that wasn’t 100%, content I didn’t believe in and I was publishing posts, just for the sake of getting something up.
Obviously, blogging isn’t what I do for work, it’s something I do for fun, but it started to feel like work and there was no time for me to switch off between this and my full time job. I think a break is what I needed and I’m currently in the process of jotting idea’s down about which direction I want to take my blog. I still want to focus on the beauty element, because ultimately that’s my passion and I enjoy it, but I want to start creating content that is useful, meaning for and inspiring.
I hope you understand why this break is important for me, and I promise I will be back soon, hopefully with a fresh outlook and posts you guys really enjoy. In the mean time, I’ll continue to support the bloggers I love, connect with you all and be a little more present on socials!
Thanks for everything so far, it means so much to me.
Kisses and Love
