Hey everyone! I know it has been over a year since my last post. So much has happened!
-I lost my will/the heart to blog on a regular basis. It seemed like stats were tanking, and I hated that I was placing so much importance on what my stats were; losing my joy in showing off polishes and makeup looks in the process.
-Last year I was pregnant with child 5, and when you’re pregnant and you already have kids…well, life is exhausting. 😴 There was just no time to blog regularly!
-The computer I had just kept getting slower and slower until it was almost impossible to use. Added into the mix was that my external hard drive was killed (thanks children) and I still can’t recover all the photos I had. Also my camera performance was getting worse and worse. All of that added up to a disheartened me.
So, I started microblogging on instagram and slowly the joy I had when I started this blog has come back. I’ve been posting when I want, and how I want, and trying to drill into my head “Comparison is the thief of joy” *thanks Nichole*. I’ve stopped being so concerned about how my photos look, and being obsessed about taking “the perfect picture”. I’m sharing more about me than just my nails and my makeup.
Now I’m getting into Instagram Reels (I never did get into the tickity-tok) and even though it is frustrating at times, it’s also something I’m enjoying!
I’m hoping to get back to actual blogging because let’s face it, an actual blog has lasting power that microblogging doesn’t have. I do feel there is still value in blogging and I hope that when I get back to regular posting, you’ll be here along for the ride.
Peace to you, and be well!
