Guess who's back-back-back, back again again again tell a friend, friend friend!
Hey guys, so at the start of this week I announced I was having a break, I didn't know how long I would be having a break for but I wanted to reflect on the position I was currently in with my blog! I am actually back quicker than what I thought I would be, but it took a lot shorter amount of time than I anticipated to reflect upon my blog, but I did and I thought I would share it quickly with you today! ( Side note, if you have no interest in reading why I took a short break and you continue looking at some pretty pictures I took on an autumn walk this morning, if you do care about me, please do carry on reading!
My main issue with my blog was I was not enjoying the whole process and everything that goes alongside it, however, I think I have come down to the core reason why. I was too organised! Ironic, I know! My post popular post is ' How to be an organised blogger' yet I think my own advice is wrong! By having all my posts scheduled so far in advance, it took the thrill away of uploading it and enjoying the process. I didn't even know what post was supposed to go up sometimes and I couldn't upload what I wanted because it would mess everything up. So instead from now, I will not be having a regular schedule. Somedays I'll upload on a Wednesday some days it will be on a Sunday or whenever! Just stay posted to my social media, if you don't want to miss a post!
I have also learnt that I don't need to be validated numerically. Just because one post got more comments than another, it doesn't mean that post is better than any of the others! I need to stop caring that my numbers aren't as consistent as they used to be and just upload what I want when I want! I also need to stop commenting on blog posts just because they are in my bloglovin feed because I feel like I will let someone down if I don't, even know I have no interest in that particular topic! Commenting on blogs needs to be enjoyable, and I need to begin to enjoy it again!
So here is to a more enjoyable, random blogging rest of the year!! Let's start things off with an autumn photo diary because let's face it, who could bear to read another ' 20 things I love about autumn'
Thanks for reading!
