Note to Blogger Self

Hey.

Remember me?

The girl with an accent?

No?

I know. I’m sorry.

It’s been so long since I’ve properly blogged. We’re almost entering April and I still haven’t actually sat down to properly blog. And, I’ve got to say, it feels a little awful when I look at my blog now. I feel like I’ve abandoned my baby. And that’s what my blog is… my baby.

So I’m not sure if anyone even noticed my hiatus. In that case, this is a post to myself. If I’m wrong, then I love you for reading because it means there’s still hope for my writing!

Explaining my hiatus is pointless, I’m aware. It’s the same story every time… “I’ve been so caught up with uni stuff!” “Oh my gosh life has been so crazy!” etc. You’ve heard it all, so I don’t need to say it again. We all know life gets in the way of sitting down and breathing. lol. It sounds morbid, I know. But the fact that we’re up and running means that we don’t have to sit and breathe, if that makes any sense. (*note to self: I’ve got to stop rambling so much!)

I want to say that it’s okay to leave my blog for a little bit to get my life back in order. But the reason I started this blog was to document my life and create an outlet where I can express myself and my creativity. It helps me go out into the world and see it from a different perspective.Β A blogger perspective. Holler at me if you know what I mean πŸ˜‰

This blog helps me work on my writing and myself – as corny as that sounds. Leaving it aside for a few moments to get my life back in check is no big deal. I promise. But when I write, I feel like I’m doing something with my life. It makes literally no sense, but I seriously love writing! I guess that’s why editing my vlogs is also taking an eternity.

I’ve still got my Ireland vlog. From December. December!!! It’s crazy how I can procrastinate editing. I don’t get myself sometimes, because I honestly enjoy editing.. I guess it’s more daunting to have people see my face and my stuttering self rather than reading the words I’ve created.

And then I see how successful other bloggers have become in less time than me and that gets me down again. What’s the point?, I think. Well, this is the point: writing because you want to, creating content because you want to, expressing yourself because you want to.

Not because others are going to notice you,

NotΒ because you need acknowledgment,

Not because you want to be famous.

Nope, nope, and nope.

It can be difficult to avoid the dark spiral down blogging hell, but it’s thoughts like this post that get me back up that steep staircase regardless of my bad shape.

I’ve got to think back to all those times I’ve justΒ enjoyed creating content even before I hit theΒ publish button.

I’ve also gotten so much into photography in the past year, and I am thoroughly enjoying it! Here are some of my favourite snaps that have become blogposts:

In conclusion, I’m back! Or well, I’m going to try to post regularly again.

Wish me luck!!

  1. I totally understand! And it’s so funny that the same day I decided to post again (after a big hiatus!) you post this message! I totally see myself in this words! Thanks for this and good luck! πŸ˜€

  2. Welcome back! We’re glad to see you again! I myself just took a week off from blogging last week. Sometimes you just lose your motivation and the best thing to do is allow yourself to rest and get back into it when you’re ready. At least that’s how it is for me! And it can be discouraging when you start comparing your blog’s success to others–I’ve definitely fallen down that dark hole before. This post has great advice, and I look forward to seeing your posts again! 😊

    1. Aw thank you!! ❀ And you're completely right! But sometimes it's just so hard to get back in when you start comparing yourself with everyone.. it's such a stupid thing to do, but ah that's us humans for ya.. πŸ˜› Thank you so much for reading and commenting! Means a lot! πŸ™‚ ❀

  3. The timing of this and reading this – it’s so weird have been in the exact same place! I’m also returning after an unplanned hiatus! And definitely don’t compare yourself – this blog is your outlet and yours alone, it’s unique to you – so really incomparable when you look at it like that πŸ˜‰ looking forward to catching up with your posts!

    1. I’m so glad people can relate! It really makes me feel like I shouldn’t worry too much about it, you know? Like you said, it’s my outlet and mine alone. I can decide what I want to do with it and when I’d like to. You’re so sweet, thank you so much!! πŸ™‚ ❀
