Why I Stopped Blogging
From a young age like many others, I loved creating my own websites which stemmed from the blogging site Piczo. I remember sitting there with my cousins in my nans’ house, adding glittery titles and fussing over which webcam photo to set as my icon. I then proceeded to create a blog on Blogspot and then in November 2013 I opened my first website with the help of the wonderful Oliver Caveney; who once again has come to my rescue and helped set up this website after months going back and forth on deciding whether my indecisive self, wanted to commit to starting something again I fell out of love with…
I committed to the blogging lifestyle focusing on beauty, fashion, travel and lifestyle but with a repetitive life with nothing new happening, I found my blog lacked worthy content and became repetitive. Along with these feelings I decided to give up and although had intentions to restart I never did. Throughout secondary school, people were aware that I had been an avid online content creator and along with being bullied this was brought up often; which certainly did not help with my motivation.
As you’ll read in my next blog post ‘An Honest View on University | First Year’ you’ll learn that I entered a new chapter in my life where I was surrounded around people who did not know about my past with being a content creator and I felt for the first time in my life I had a fresh start. Initially I was worried about the judgment that would come along with it, however, if I knew back then that these individuals would have become some of my closest friends, I definitely would have had the confidence to tell them as I knew they would have supported me.
When you do something for so long, you soon forget the reasons why you fell in love with it and as the saying goes ‘you don’t know what you have till it’s gone’ and with me, that could not be truer. I am one of those people who if I’m not happy with where I am in life I know I have to do something about it and despite this being harder for some things than others, I faced this difficulty when giving up figure skating and it was not until after a few months I realised how much I missed it.
However, with now being a university student as well as recently moving house, I am sure that I will now be full of ideas to post and fingers crossed, stay dedicated and motivated to come back as a blogger.
Until next time!
