I feel like i have lost my confidence when it comes to my blog.
I love my blog just as much now if not more than when i started it but i feel like i question myself more and put a lot more pressure on myself now than i did 3 years ago, more people are making this a full time job and i seem to find myself thinking i’m just not good enough anymore. Why would someone read my blog when there are all those full time bloggers out there? I constantly find myself thinking ‘are those pictures good enough? have i written that review in-dept enough?’ ‘am i offending anyone’ i don’t seem to and can’t seem to just let loose with my writing like i used to, looking back on my earlier posts i was much more care free with my writing and i need to get that back!
I used to spend so long taking photo’s of outfits I’m loving on my driveway just me and my tripod even Skippy! (with the odd passerby and maybe the postman thinking I’m kinda crazy or just really vain) but now those kind of photos seemed to be a thing of the past, hence why this year i haven’t had a fashion post on my blog yet. Sometimes its impossible to get someone to take outfit photo’s for you, you can only ask certain people, people work so conflicting schedules are really annoying and living in the UK the weather is also a big set back… is anyone else wondering where the heck our summer is? I would also love to include many more lifestyle posts on here but the fact is i’m a pretty boring and real person, i don’t go on lots of weekends away or to fancy restaurants, eating out a lot. For me those are few and far between, and the ones i do go on i do what most people do, forget to charge the camera or leave the camera at home (I’m human, which is also really annoying) I’m starting to think sod it when i next do something i may just start taking pictures of anything and everything and see if i can make something of a lifestyle post, even if those pictures are taken with my iPhone!
I guess what i’m saying is i’m going to try and forget all the negative thoughts i keep having, the ‘oh my outfit pictures won’t be good enough taken with a tripod’ the ‘my review isn’t long enough’ and the ‘everything must have a white background to look pretty’ I’m going to stop comparing myself to others, stop thinking things should be done a certain way because they shouldn’t … I’m just going to do me and just get back to talking and showing you guys everything i am loving, even if its a photo using my tripod on my driveway because lets face it.. thats what i started my blog for, to share my love of all things beauty, fashion and in everyday life! Hopefully i can get my blogging confidence back!
