Lately even though I might not have shown it too much because I was still writing posts I had kinda lost my blogging mojo, not in a massive way but I wasn’t exactly feeling blogging the way I used to. I was feeling a little down in the dumps about my blog, the way it looks, just everything about it, I couldn’t put my finger on why but I did and I just lost all love for it.
Page views are a massive part of blogging to be honest, that isn’t me just putting it mildly either. When it comes to working with brands they want to know the ins and outs of your stats and that is natural, but it also puts some serious pressure on you to make sure that your stats are good. Having lots of page views is a fantastic feeling, mainly because you think wow someone is actually reading my blog and enjoying what I’m writing, lately however, I’m making myself understand that page views aren’t everything. So why have I stopped worrying about page views?
Social media can be one of the things that I struggle with the most as a blogger, that might sound strange because it is something that we use practically all of the time, however sometimes we genuinely just need to take time away from our phones and social media! There can be so much pressure to constantly upload something or anything for that matter however lately I feel like I honestly struggle to upload all of the time. So why is it important to put your phone down and take a step back from social media?
Instagram has got to be one of the most frustrating platforms in the world, especially for a blogger, I have been upping my game so much recently, mainly because it seriously needed some work! I never really had a theme but I have a sort of theme going on now kind of unintentionally. Lately however, I’ve really been enjoying just taking photographs again, it is something that I have always loved to do even when I was younger because capturing that moment and making it last in picture form is one of the greatest feelings!
Social media can honestly be such a struggle mainly because it is snippets of your life that you just post online and that is usually the end of that, however it honestly isn’t that simple, and it never is. It is the one place where everything seems to move at 100 miles a minute and trying to keep up can be a ridiculous struggle – even for me. Whether it is work and not being able to update all the time, your health making it difficult (mine happens to be my mental health sometimes) or life just getting in the way, trust me we all feel it and you’re not alone.
