my return to blogging

Well, it’s been a while… hasn’t it?

I’ll pretend you’ve all been anxiously waiting on my return to blogging, but really I think we’ve all been anxiously watching the news and scrolling our phones instead, huh? 

My last blog post was in October, which funnily enough was a life update. I probably need to write another wee update since I’ve been gone for so long, but first I want to focus on my return to blogging. I have very good intentions of sticking around this time, but you’ll have to be patient with me whilst I get back into the swing of things. 

So… the elephant in the room. Why have I not written a blog post in 7 months? I’d say it’s a combination of a series of unfortunate events in my life (which I’ll get into another time) and also feeling quite disconnected with the blogging world. 

The thing is – I don’t want my blog to be a career, a side hustle, whatever you want to call it. My blog started as a creative outlet, a hobby, and that’s what I always want it to be. However, when you’re constantly scrolling past full time bloggers and a feed full of ads (all the power to them by the way), I think it’s easy to compare yourself and feel like you’re not doing enough. Honestly, I think I was just putting too much pressure on myself, setting unrealistic standards and it took the fun out of blogging.

However, I am back, with a better mindset and a brain full of words waiting to be written. You might notice that my blog has had a wee revamp, and I’m really happy with how it looks. I even designed a new logo for myself on Procreate!

With this revamp, I want it to be the start of a new era on my blog. I don’t just want this to be a space for skincare routines and inner monologues. I want this to be something that is valuable for you too. Something that you can relate to or maybe even something that will teach you something new. 

I’m going to be honest and share the highs and lows of my life as a twenty something year old who has absolutely no clue what they’re doing… Hopefully with the occasional life lesson thrown in there too.

I’ll be writing on my own terms when the inspiration strikes, rather than forcing myself to upload according to a strict schedule like I have in the past…

No one is anxiously refreshing my blog waiting for a new post, there is no pressure from you wonderful humans, so why should I put that pressure on myself? 

So that’s it… I’m here, I’m back and I’m so excited.

I hope you’re ready to discuss our bodies and our brains. I’ll speak to you soon!

    Well done you! I’ve been considering the idea of returning to blogging for a while now, but I just feel so disconnected from the person I was when I first started my blog… I spoke to my hubby about this recently and he agreed that we’d both changed as people and perhaps outwardly become quite cold… 🙁
    I look forward to hearing more from you on here and hopefully we can go for cocktails again in the not too distant future! 🙂 xx

      I totally get that feeling! Change isn’t always a bad thing though, and I for one would love to see you blogging again. I look forward to another cocktail date when all this mess is over! xx

  • You’re right, I don’t need to anxiously refresh for new posts – I’m subscribed, so they will come to me when you’re ready 🙂

    Because I’M ready, any time.

    Welcome back, lovely.

    xx
