Is This The End Of Blogging For Me?

Is This The End Of Blogging For Me?

As both girls sleep (thank you Mr Sunshine) I am taking this opportunity to sit down and write. You may have noticed that blog posts have been few and far between from me lately! I’m not really sure why this is other than I haven’t really had anything to say! Or have I just fallen out of love with the whole blogging scene? Is this is the end of blogging for me?

When I first started this blog, with a sleepy 4 month old S snoozing on my lap, I blogged for me. For the memories. I needed an outlet, something that was for me, something of my own. That happened to be my little space on the world wide web! Now I love my little blog and everything it has brought me, I am just not sure what this year holds for me.

I have met some amazing ladies through the internet, people who have listened and offered words of support when I’ve been battling my mental health. My photography has massively improved from those 2014 posts and I have captured so many amazing memories! I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing brands, each giving me the confidence to keep going.

Is this the end of the blogging road for me?

But I will never be “a blogger blogger”. I don’t have the time to, nor do I want to, spend all of my time on social media, pushing and plugging. I am not in a position to give up my day job to pursue my blogging career and I do not have a fancy home, wardrobe or life! I am happiest nestled on the sofa with my two girls by my side or weather permitted, outdoors exploring.

I am that person who will try to fit in. Buy a product because you said it was a must have. Visit somewhere because everyone else is! And in doing that I lost my way. I was trying to be something that someone would want to read. But actually I was just attracting the wrong audience.

This blog is for me. For the memories. So if you’ve come here looking for fancy days out, a fancy Mum wardrobe or a perfectly placed family, you’re in the wrong place. From now on this is a place of real life. A place for my random thoughts.Is this the end of blogging for me?

 

My life isn’t always rosy. Some days I don’t even want to leave the house and others you can’t get me back in. I spend too much of my time trying to spin 150 plates and never managing more than two! But I am me. And this is what you will see!

So is this the end of blogging for me? I’m not sure but for now I am going to be busy making memories and truly being in the moment with those beautiful girls of mine!

Over and out, peace!

    Yes!! Just do it for you! I’m new to this (haven’t even launched my blog yet… next week it should be up for viewing!) and I’m trying to find blogs I relate to but I also get caught up in our own everyday activities. I’d love to follow your journey with your beautiful little girls.

    This is very interesting, because I found myself not enjoying blogging anymore a while back and it was because I stopped writing and creating for me and my passion for being creative. As soon as I refocused again, I began to enjoy it a lot more and have found it a space to be creative again… instead of it being a place where I spent too much time focused on the next post that I hope will appeal to the masses!

      That’s exactly it. I stopped writing for me and wrote what I thought people would read x

    I could have written this. I feel like I need to quit and get away from social media to give my little one what she deserves but I need the money! x

      Oh I totally get that! If it makes you money and means you can be at home with her then I say you’re already giving her what she deserves x

    So beautiful. I’m thinking of backing off myself because of all the time it actually ends up taking away from my family! ❤️ Thanks for sharing

    I go through phases of being really uninspired like I want to pack it all in and delete social media but I’ve made this my career now so I guess I’m screwed haha! X

    Totally agree. You need to write for you- once you start writing for an audience I think you lose a special something!

    It’s so important to take a step back when you’re not enjoying something, so totally agree but will miss your posts 🙁

    Think it is important to sometimes take a moment to consider why you are doing something to figure out if it is truly what you want. Sounds like a great idea to write for you as and when you want to and enjoy making memories and being in the moment. I too could never be a ‘blogger blogger’ and be constantly pushing and promoting posts as I have too much going on in life to juggle and I find if I do too much I end up hating the blog and it gets so far off the track of why I started blogging.
