Blog Update

Returning To Blogging

Guess who’s back, back again…

No, Slim Shady is not back. Soz to disappoint.

But I am! Woop woop!

After what seems like 3000 months away from my blog (it’s actually like 8) I’ve decided to grace the blogging world with my presence once again.

I mean, the blog was still here. Still sat floating around on the ‘net, waiting for an unsuspecting victim to stumble upon its pages. BUT ALAS! I had actually decided to have a break.

*hears Ross from Friends scream “WE WERE ON A BREAK!”*

I’d actually lost my blogging mojo even after I’d decided 2017 was going to be THE year I gave blogging my all. I dunno what happened, but I just wasn’t feeling it anymore and no matter how hard I tried I just couldn’t think of anything I wanted to blog about. Or I sort of could, but the words didn’t come easily.

That’s something I envy – y’know, the way some bloggers just make it all seem so easy? And before one of my fellow bloggers reads that and rolls their eyes and says errr it’s not?!?! I know it ain’t.

I think what I’m getting at is the fact that it’s so easy for one blogger to compare themselves to another and then think they’re shit because their flat lays aren’t as sleek or no-one comments on their blog or whatever. FYI I’ve yet to even try attempting a flat lay (am I even a real blogger?!) so kudos to anyone that does.

But you’re not shit. Not at all. At the end of the day, if you enjoy blogging then that’s the main thing, right? And I think that’s what I missed. I’d see people tweet about a new post they’d published or I’d have a scroll through one of my favourite blogs (Hannah Galeย /ย Elle at Feathering The Empty Nest) and just have this big ol’ craving to be tapping away at my keyboard once again. The utter excitement of when you hit ‘publish’ and then wait to see how many views your post gets is amazing and nerve racking all at once.

After weeks of should I shouldn’t I… here I am. Ready to tackle this blogging malarkey once again.

As much as I’m going to get back into this for fun (and something else to do other than bingeing shows on Netflix), I’m thinking of perhaps having a ‘re-brand’. Or in other words, giving this little nook of the web a new look. So if you can recommend anyone to help me with this, please ping me a message or leave a comment, I’d be super grateful!

Until next time…

  1. You can do it Melissa! Just be you and blog about what your passionate about and the words will come. Don’t go comparing yourself, I am the same. There is always someone bigger, better, with more views, more hits and more engagement. That’s just life isn’t it! But if you are doing it and enjoying it then that is the main thing really. If anything comes of it and it grows to be huge then thats just a bonus in my eyes!
    Good luck ;) xx
