- I haven't posted in, like, two weeks. I don't really have an excuse for that besides, like, college. Also, I've been too hung up on the future of my blog, and coming up with the perfect blueprint to make it everything I want it to be. But at some point you've just got to stop planning, and start making. So that's what I'm doing now.
- Over the past month or so, I've changed my blog theme! I really like how it looks now, and I hope you do too!
- I've decided to stop doing "fashion" posts, and focus more on lifestyle/ self improvement/ life musing types of posts, because those are what I enjoy writing the most.
And ultimately I've decided, because of my own type of personality, that I can't run my blog like a business. That mindset just doesn't work for me. It works for many people, and is definitely necessary for those who have businesses they promote through blogging, but that doesn't apply to me. I've decided I'm going to focus less on page views, followers, and the possibility of making money through blogging (right now, those things just stress me out). Instead, I'm just going to create, write new content, make my blog the way I want it to be, and share it as much as I can. For me, blogging is primarily a creative pursuit, not a business one.
I like writing about my life, about my weird, philosophical thoughts, and about my experiences trying to be a sort-of-adult. So that's what I'm going to focus on.
If you're a blogger who feels kinda caught in a rut, try to really focus on creating what you love. Create things that could be helpful for a certain kind of reader (a reader like you!) rather than the biggest, most popular, trending-on-pinterest audience.
It's certainly tempting to look at successful blogs and think "that is the recipe for success, I should be doing that." But maybe it doesn't fit with who you are. Maybe that's not the sort of stuff that makes you really excited. Maybe you will discover a weird little niche of your own, and maybe you'll eventually gain a readership that appreciates it!
Anyways, those have been the thoughts buzzing through my mind during this two-week-blogging hiatus. I'm so ready and inspired to jump back into blogging at full force! I've decided I'm going to be posting twice a week from now on; on Tuesdays and Fridays. (This week I'll probably post Wednesday and Saturday because this update post is throwing things off).
Anyways, thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!! :D
