LIFE UPDATE| BACK TO BLOGGING?




So my lovely readers it has been officially over a month since I last blogged! I think this must be one of the longest blogging breaks I have had, but boy did I need it. I wasn't completely outta the blogging scene, I mean I still went to events, still organised the #fblchat and all things FBL and I still read and commented on blogs. I just didn't put my fingers to keys, and well upload a post... 

Anywho, during my hiatus, I came to the conclusion that I had really neglected the real reason  I started blogging. In 2011 this blog was started as a creative outlet, and in some way during the 3 years, I can say I lost the true reason I blogged. I got caught up in the competition and being the best, that at times I just didn't blog for me. So from now on, I truly blog because I want to. When I put a post out I'll promote it, obviously,but I won't obsess about how many likes or views it gets.. I'll just let it go and well go on with the rest of my life ya know!

Now what have I been doing since I have been outta the blogging scene? well if you follow me on instagram you'll know:

  •  I have just been enjoying life tbh and connecting with my friends.
  •  Ohh my big sis also competed on the jumpoff.  She won one battle, but sadly lost her title. But I am super proud as she was the first female producer for ages! Check out her stuff here: Beatnik8 souncloud & YouTube. 
  • I am also officially a working gal now! I work in social media and blogger outreach as part of my role! Which is pretty fitting since I am a blogger. It is cool, but hard work though! I'll write more about this in a separate post, since I COMPLETED ONE OF MY 2014 GOALS.

That is about it tbh. My brain just needed a re-boot! I am currently editing my second YouTube video, but my editing program is being très difficult. So I'll get it out ...eventually. I am also going to take up another hobby, I am thinking dance as I did a little back at uni and I love to dance.. so hopefully that will make me feel more creative? I dunno I am just happy I am back to doing what feels natural and I am so glad that I have so many supportive readers. I read all your comments back on my "Am I my blogging bug?" post and it also helped me get back into blogging. 

I am rambling! Thank you and enjoy the bank holiday weekend!

  2. Welcome back! I feel the same as you do about starting to obsess over views and readers and comments, the blogging world is becoming very competitive and I think all bloggers need to go back and remember why they started blogging :) It makes for a happier blogger :) I'd love to read more about your job and how you got it!? Pretty please do a post on it :) xxx

  3. Glad you're back, you look beautiful in that picture by the way!
    I totally get where you're coming from. It's so easy to lose sight of why we start blogging once we've been doing it for a while that alot of times taking a step away from it for a while is really what we need. Glad you're back & had a good hiatus just living life. :)
    I'm happy I've found your blog I'm following you now & can't wait to see more. Keep in touch!
