It has been a looong time since I last posted! Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be one of those ‘I’ve had too much going on in my life’ followed by a rant of everything that has been happening, only for me to stop posting a week later. This is more of a realisation post.
Blogging is something that is new to me and I have only been doing it for a short amount of time. I really enjoyed setting up my own page and loading photos of things that I love in my life, sharing craft projects and baking successes and disasters! However, I quickly got caught up in the ‘blogsteria’ and put pressure on myself to blog everyday and to blog about everything that I do. Well, unfortunately life got in the way and I was unable to keep it up, which then put me off blogging altogether.
I am still an avid reader of other people’s blogs and really missed doing my own. Whilst reading people’s posts in the beginning of January (many of which were inevitably resolution based) I read one which inspired me. Unfortunately I can’t remember who is was, otherwise I would give them credit, but they explained the pressure they had been putting on themselves to blog everyday and how this wasn’t healthy. They made a resolution to create a balance in their blogging life and to post as often as they could. This made me think…if this person (who had thousands of followers) can take this approach, why can’t I?
So…Bells, Bows and Bella will be more active in the future, posting projects and photos which will hopefully interest and inspire you…with a healthier balance!
Have you had a similar ‘blogsteria’ experience? What have you done to overcome it?
