I opened my laptop to write this and, dare I say it, I felt nervous. I can't even count the times that I have opened up Wordpress, logged in and just stared at the 'new post' page before switching to, you know, Topshop. That's the thing when you break a routine, it becomes so difficult to get back into the swing of things. I am so out of touch with my blog it is untrue. I still love it, and am so proud of it, but I just feel so lost. It's just that I feel uninspired and confused with what it is and the direction it is heading. Overthinking, as usual. I know this is a common feeling amongst bloggers but I just can't seem to shake it off.
I also have a new job, and it takes up more of my time than I imagined. When I'm not at work and planned to be working on content for my little space of the internet, I am often too tired and just want to curl up with a cuppa and an episode of Walking Dead. My mind just can't create.
However, the last few weeks all I can think about is my blog - I miss it. I hate the thought of it just sat there neglected and unloved. I have also been reading more blogs than ever before and it makes be feel so envious of the content they're creating. Which is silly because there is nothing stopping me from creating and being like those blogs I admire so much.
So basically I just wanted to write to share a few of the things running through my mind at the moment and also just update everyone on where I have been. And yes, I will be back. I am working on getting my work-life balance right so that I do feel creative and I do want to keep uploading regularly. In fact I want to be much more organised and make sure I have set dates, probably twice a week, where I upload. Even having things in the bank ready and waiting, that would be ideal. I am working on it.
But in the mean time, here are some links to some blogs I have been loving right now. I hope you enjoy and I promise you will see me again soon!
