You may have noticed that I have took a little bit of a break from my blog recently. Last year was the best year for my blog yet, but near the end I started to find myself with a loss of motivation. I didn’t quite know where to go, or what to do.
See, as much as I love my blog, I need to change it up. Everyone is doing amazing things with their blog, and I found myself just floating along. Nothing was changing. My content was the same, my photo’s where all starting to look like duplicated of themselves, and I was losing my motivation.
So the past few weeks have been spent trying to figure out where I would like to go with my blog. The first thing I have decided is that I have to start back into beauty content. This blog was started as a beauty blog, and over the years I grew bored of that. But I miss it. I’m not saying this is going to be solely a beauty blog, but I definitely want to include a lot more beauty related content.
Another area I really want to expand on this year, is my fashion content. It was one of my blog goals for last year, but wasn’t really something I ended up achieving. So this year I am throwing aside my insecurities and fears, and just going for it.
And while I am waiting to put these changes into motion, I have already started to make slight changes. I changed up my blog look with a brand new theme from the amazing Pipdig. I absolutely love all of their themes, and it took me ages to decide on a new one, but I eventually settled on the beautiful Holly & Weave theme. I still have a few changes to make, but I’m already in love with it.
Another change I’ve made, is to end my daily posting on instagram. I actually stopped this back in December, but I’ve decided that will be a permanent change now. Don’t get me wrong- I know daily posting is the best way to grow your instagram account, which is one of my main goals for the year. But honestly, I just couldn’t do it anymore. It was getting too much, and it was demotivating me far too much. It also wasn’t doing anything for my creativeness. I started to feel like I was forcing myself for the sake of it, instead of creating for the love of it.
I’m definitely excited for the year ahead. I’m not promising I’ll blog every week, or that I’ll instagram every day. But instead I’m going to be posting quality posts on all social media platforms, that I actually love. And that, I think, will make all the difference.*POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS
