I’ve been thinking a lot about blogging recently and whether I actually want to stop or not. I have found I do enjoy doing it and I’m not up for trying to change to get more readers or make it anything more than an hobby.
However I have been thinking about what I want my content to be and realised I have moved away from what I started out doing and what I enjoyed writing about – the adventures in life, whether big or small!
I’ve been caught up in my own life too mush recently and forgotten about spending time doing things I enjoy and then being able to reflect and share. So I’m going back to where I started this blog and focusing on my love of tea, coffee, and exploring!
So I treated myself to some new tea and coffee to try and will be sharing my thoughts and learnings about making damn good drinks. Fingers crossed I’ll also get to go exploring more places soon too.
I decided to have a bit of blog break as I couldn’t find my motivation to write posts for a while. I felt I had nothing to say on this platform. I felt other people were saying exactly what I wanted to in better ways. So I focused on sharing what I was reading on Twitter.
This has been great as I felt I connected a bit more on Twitter by commenting and replying to posts.
I think I’ve been more conscious of how I use my time and how I want to articulate my thoughts.
I don’t think of myself as a blogger. Yes, I have a blog, but I don’t use it for anything other than recording and sharing my own thoughts. I don’t want it to be anything more than that really. I’ve been following some new-to-me bloggers and vloggers and I think I got a little bored. So many have similar content. The ones I love have their own rules and niche. They are interesting and insightful. I don’t think I’m one of those either, but if I was aiming for anything it would be to be talking about the things that matter to me.
So I’ve taken the pressure off myself and that has felt nice. I feel like I do want to keep blogging though. I’m just not going to set a schedule. When I think I want to say or share something I will. I’m not going to worry about photos or length. I am just going to focus on what I want to say.
I want to talk about depression and mental health.
I want to share my opinions and show my thought process.
I want to share photos of my cats, coffee, and yummy food.
I want to have a space to express myself as myself.
So that is what I’m going to do.
