A Love/Hate Relationship With Blogging




Im guessing you've already gathered that I seem to have developed a bit of a love/hate relationship with blogging.

Well that would be because Im so bloody inconsistent. I find it so tricky to stay motivated, resulting in some months that are full of posts, and others full of nothing. I think this is mainly due to the fact I just feel so unsatisfied all the time. When I first started blogging in 2014 it was because I had so much to say and no one to say it to, there's only so many times you can tell your friends about the new lipstick you bought yesterday, oh and the one the day before, and the day before that.. you get the idea. 
Back then I didn't care what my blog looked like, how I wrote, or the content I was putting out there, I think that was because I basically had no idea what I was doing, looking back now I wish I still had no idea, maybe then I wouldn't be so strict on myself now. I also wish there wasn't so much pressure  for your blog to look and be 'perfect'.

The main thing that irritates me the most about myself is how I write, looking back at old posts my accent shines through and I just write how I talk, and people always pick me up on it. I live in Somerset, so I sound like a farmer essentially haha. Not saying thats a bad thing, because in person I love my accent, but when Im writing I can't help but type/write how I talk which is so bleddy annoying as it takes me ages to go back through and correct myself. If you heard my accent in person properly, you'd know it just sounds so unprofessional, well I think so anyway! I dunno, just another aspect that annoys me. Should it annoy me, is it even a bad thing? I dunno.

I also hate that unless I'm following smaller blogs on Bloglovin', they don't show up as a suggestion. Just the big ones, I've got to proper delve into their comments to find smaller bloggers, I like the bigger ones but it feels like everyone is doing the same thing now. Id like to read something different that shows off someones personality, rather than how much someone loves a certain teeth whitening brand, sigh!
 So what I guess what I'm trying to say is, expect inconsistency, random posts, and honesty over here because I tend not to follow the crowd haha. If I'm not feeling it, I'm just not feeling it, and that's how I'm going to go about my blog from now on I think. That doesn't mean I don't love it any less, because I do, but life does get in the way, and at the moment that's my main concern, I just don't want to feel bad about it, haha.


Lotsa Love,
