I lost touch with what I loved most about my blog; to write and be heard by someone. I’m sure a lot of you can relate if you do anything like blogging, you want to be seen and then the desire to be seen takes over what you wanted to do in the first place.
What made you start.
It’s not bad to want people to see and appreciate what you’re putting out there but you may find, just like I did, you feel like what you’re creating isn’t good enough because it’s not getting seen like other people’s content is.
So you change it. You write about things you don’t necessarily care about but you think others will care. Blogging is a big business now so some people have to focus more on what readers want to read, but blogging isn’t my “business”. I make no money from it which is completely fine, I don’t do it to earn any material possessions. I didn’t create it in the first place to make money from it, I made it to write and share my photos with anyone willing to take a few minutes out of their day and listen.
My two-year bogging anniversary passed a week or two ago. I only just realised while writing this and I thought back to the day I spent writing my first proper blog post. I felt so proud and a little nervous to put something out there, but I felt as though I had finally found something I clicked with.
So I want to go back to writing what ever I want. Or maybe not writing at all just sharing some photos with you. Making my blog my outlet again without the pressure of numbers and stats and SEO (which I still don’t understand).
I wanted to give this little explanation because those of you that have stuck with me deserve at least 300 words saying why I dropped off the face of the earth.
So thank you for listening again and here’s to transparency.
