I was thinking the other day about just how far I’ve come with this little ol’ blog of mine and reminiscing of the early blogging days when it was truly all about community. When there was no hassle for views and comments and click to tweet quotes or Pinterest graphics. No strategies or plans and definitely no defined blogging process.
Whilst, growth is an inevitable thing and something that just has to happen, I’ve missed the old days of putting out my random thoughts, poetry and knowing that someone out there can connect to it. I started my blog as an avenue to share my thoughts and as cliche as this sounds – to also connect with + inspire people through my own life lessons.
Blogging has definitely been therapeutic for me and a sort of journal and I guess I miss that. There’s just something about being able to look back at your pictures and thoughts over time and see how much growth has occurred. How much you’ve changed.
Whether it’s talking about my self-doubt and imposter syndrome, choosing happiness, being an introvert and how it has affected my growth or just rambling about feeling like a plain Jane, I always left feeling a bit better after shelling it out.
I genuinely miss such content in the blogging world, that’s why Sade of InMySundayBest will always be a fave for me. If you’ve been here from the word go (or you’re just joining in), I’ll like to know if there’s anything you miss about my blogging style and what you’ll like to see more from me.
So, I’ve decided to go back to the basics in terms of content. Of course, there’s still going to be helpful information packed posts (with all the click to tweet boxes and Pinterest graphics haha) but I want to infuse more of myself/life like the good old days, and document more of life’s little treasures and moments as well.
What sort of content do you look out for/ or draws you into a blog? Some of your favorite blogs and why do you love them? What would you like to see more from me? Let’s talk!
I was going to make an analogy to how I’m also going back to the basics with my style but there’s nothing “basic” about this outfit. These were a bunch of fun random pictures I took during my holiday in Atlanta while strolling around the neighborhood. I had no intentions of using them for the blog at that time, so if you can look past and ignore the Nike slides I bullied off my cousin and focus more on how gorgeous my print peplum top is instead. It was a thrift find that caught my eyes and I’m glad I kept. I’ve styled it previously on the blog here and also styled this orange pencil skirt previously here and here.
I tweeted a while back that I haven’t been more at peace with my blog as I am lately. Right now, I’m just enjoying the whole process of creating content and this beautiful blog of mine. I know that it can feel like a lot of pressure sometimes and it’s easy to get caught up in all that “super blogger” stuff, so I just want to also encourage you to try to go back to the basics and the “why” you started when this happens.
With that said, anyone else feeling the pressures of blogging and following the “new rules” of blogging? How do you overcome it?Here's How Going Back To The Basics Can Help You As A Blogger! Click To Tweet
