I’m finally back after taking an unannounced social media break..
The past few months have been a little bit hard. I began my third year of university and since then it has been a whirlwind. Starting a dissertation, taking on a placement and working nearly 30 hours a week has been a struggle to say the least. Life got stressful and in all honesty blogging became something i just put aside for a while. All social media was put aside, I took a break from both twitter and Instagram, as well as anything that became a distraction.
I think in some ways I fell out of love with my blog. When i started this blog I got so wrapped up in the idea of my blog having to be perfect and exactly like other peoples, that I found myself not being me. I was forcing idea’s that I wasn’t even sure of just in order to keep posting regularly and it just wasn’t me. I have so many ideas and thoughts that I want to share, even if that means there is no definitive theme to my blog but I’ve been scared because everyone seems to have their shit together if I’m honest. Although the blogging community is one of the most supportive communities I’ve ever been involved in, its still scary to go off and do your own thing, especially when you rely on those within that community to read and share your blog.
Taking this break from all social media has really been something I needed and it’s given me time to reflect on who I am, which is crucial when trying to figure out what it is that I want to be posting about and really allowing my blog to be a reflection of me, without being fearful of what people may think.Read More
