Ok, I admit it: I’ve been a terrible blogger lately. My blog has been a bit quiet as of late. I feel like I haven’t posted anything in a while, but it’s only been under a week since I last put up any content. So I thought I would do a little life update as to why I’ve been so absent in the blogosphere. A week may seem like a short time to some people, but for me, it feels like ages. So much that it’s been giving me anxiety and it stresses me out every day when I don’t post. Which will bring me to my first point:
01. When I first started blogging, it was purely out of boredom, fun, passion for writing, and my own entertainment. However, I noticed that it’s been turning into a ‘job‘ for me lately. Like it’s something that I have to do. And I’ve read many of blog posts from many different people to know that blogging definitely shouldn’t feel like that. So I thought it’d be best to take short breaks between posts, let creativity find me, and hope to fall in love with blogging all over again – because before this feeling, I really enjoyed creating.
02. I’ve mentioned in my previous posts that I got myself back into school. I am studying with Media Makeup to become a freelance makeup artist, so I’m kinda proud about that. I have school two times a week, so on those days, I feel so tired and don’t have the motivation to write on here. Then on my days off, I like to spend it hanging out with family and my partner.
03. Me and my partner will have been together for two years as of February, so we are looking at getting more serious and thinking about shifting out together. So we are currently trying to save money, and for someone who is studying and not working it is quite a struggle. So blogging has become less of a priority for me. As I need to spend money on products to review and write about, but I don’t have the money to be able to do that. So my content has been lacking and there hasn’t been much for me to write about. I want to turn this blog into something big, but life lately has been stopping me from doing that.
Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest and broke my no-posting streak, I hope you guys understand why I haven’t been posting as much. And hope that this wasn’t too boring of a read. I promise to be back sooner than later, on my own time and free will of course. 😌
What have you guys been up to lately?
