Last night I got to thinking about my blog and I came to a few realisations along the way. Most importantly I found an answer to a question that most bugged me – why do I write? Well, I started to think back to just over a year ago when I first started this little thing here and I remembered that the reason why I decided to write for the world to see was to get back into the habit of just writing. I wrote snippets of stories that were stuck in my head and what had happened during the day. I wrote about what was going on in my mind and just general ramblings.
Somewhere along the way I discovered monthly beauty boxes though, which opened up a whole new world of blogging options for me that I’d had no idea about. My posts became more structured, planned, polished (ok, maybe not that polished). And I do realise you guys (hi, friend!) may not have noticed this at all, but it’s made a huge difference in the way I write my posts. Every time I make a tutorial or a review post I put a lot of work behind them. It’s not that I don’t want to make more effort, it’s more about finding a balance.
Since around December my blog has felt like a chore at times and I think I just needed this little think about what was and what’s going to be, to sort it out in my head a bit. It doesn’t mean I’m going to revolutionise my writing in any way or never post any reviews again. It just means that I’m aware of what’s going on and don’t get sucked into the whirlpool of blogging without having a sure footing.
So here I am, with a mug of Pukka tea (they’re amazing by the way. I absolutely love their teas), with some candles lit and writing away about what my head has cooked up this time. As simple as that. And that’s where I shall leave it for today.
Have a great Sunday, people! 🙂
