I haven’t posted in well over a month. If I’m honest it’s flew by and it feels like I wrote “You’re Too Skinny” yesterday. It’s now May, everyone says it but I honestly don’t know where this year has gone. I hope it slows down at some point so I don’t feel like my life is just disappearing.
I don’t have a good excuse for not putting any posts up, other than I had no motivation what so ever, I’ve still been highly active on my social media and promoting my posts, and still generating ideas but every time I created a draft I couldn’t seem to form any words worth posting.
I’ve always believed you should post when and what you want, that you shouldn’t force it and you should be posting because you want to not because you feel you have too. I’ve previously done posts that aren’t that interesting that I haven’t been passionate about. I’m ashamed to say I’ve purely posted them because it seemed like good topic or maybe it was nice and easy to type up and get it published. I don’t want my blog to be about that this year. I want to post topics personal to me, that I’m passionate about and things I enjoy writing about. Not just publishing a post because it’s been a while and I “need” to.
In the last month I’ve received 4,000 blog views and I haven’t put one single post up. Thats way over what I usually get a month. It goes to show that you don’t need to be forcing yourself to post constantly just because you think people will stop reading. If you are promoting and still active chances are people will still read.
I’m extremely happy with that, thank you to anyone who’s ever read my blog because honestly I didn’t think I’d get over a few views a day. Although I may have quiet patches I don’t think I’ll stop blogging any time soon, I love it and I truly think it was meant for me.
A Little Catch Up
I’ve been a lot more busier at work recently, it’s really picked up and as I work full time this takes up a huge amount of my time. It’s settled down a lot now and I’m trying to manage my time a lot better! My blog has grown a lot in the last month not just with views but social stats as well! I’m pretty close to 2k on Twitter and just over 700 on Instagram. This is definitely motivating me to carry on blogging! Even though it’s mega hard to grow on Instagram and my number always goes up and down I’ve really enjoyed posting recently, I changed up my feed and no longer stick to a white flat lay theme, I just post when I want and try to get lots of pretty colourful images up as much as I can to document my life. I’m feeling much more motivated now so hoping to get back into writing more content on my blog!
I’m off to Spain the end of this month so you’ll see lots of holiday photos and blog posts of what I got up too!
