….. Because for a while I did fall out of love with it.
The longer I leave between posts, the harder I find it to post again. I get nervous to post again, I’m not really sure why and I know it seems silly. I try and plan posts, and allocate certain days to certain things and then when I miss one thing, I worry about not sticking to my plan and then I lose confidence with posting other things. It’s silly really, because when you look at it, it’s just a blog at the end of the day. I’m sure nobody else minds if I don’t post on certain days, I bet nobody has even noticed! I don’t know if any other bloggers do this (I’m sure some of you do) but I find I put a lot of pressure on myself, and then beat myself up when I don’t achieve these blog goals and then I don’t want to post.
I also find blog photography quite daunting. I’m not one for photography and layouts and “Instagram themes” (One look at my Instagram will tell you that). I never know the best way to photograph beauty products, outfits etc.
These last few days I’ve been itching to blog again thought, but I had no idea where to start. I really felt like I was starting a new blog. So I’ve gone back to the start, looking up blog post idea’s, making lists and notes, and now I feel like I have loads of inspiration and I can’t decide what to write first.
So I’ve decided to set myself some blog goals. I know I did something similar to this in my new years post, but I think with that I made the mistake of writing too much stuff, and putting too much pressure on myself. So here’s my blog goals for now :
- Less pressure!
- Post at least one post from each category each month
- Work on photography
- Keep book review Sundays going
- Write any little notes and ideas in my blog notebook
- Connect with my readers more & read more blogs
- Keep track of my post
I think that’s a lot more achievable and I’ll build up from there. Big thanks to everybody who’s stuck with me and kept coming back to read. My stats show there is a few of you which is awesome 🙂 Fellow bloggers please let me know if you’ve ever felt like this. It’ll be nice to know I’m not alone.
