So if you’ve been around for a while, you’ll know that I started blogging waaay back in 2012. I didn’t start with any goals or motives, just somewhere to spew out what was happening or what I was feeling. As with most things, that changed and I wanted to become like the blogs I was reading. The effortlessly cool fashion blogs, the beautiful beauty blogs, the perfect home blogs. Then in June last year, I changed domains and started fresh with a new vision. Best part of a later, all I have to show for it is 5 mediocre posts…
I think the problem is still in how I think of blogging. Like I have to sit at a desk and bash out 1000+ words that mean something and that doesn’t sound like fun to me. I have never been a wordsmith, words just don’t come easy to me. I remember in school being told that I try to sound smart in my essays and that I should just write as I speak but I never felt like that was official enough.
I do, however, love making imagery. The only things that I was ever any good at in school was the arty subjects, it’s all I did at A level. I’m not saying that I’m great at it, in fact in uni I got told that I can’t draw (I was doing an illustration course too, kick in the balls or what). But it’s what I like to do.
I’ve debated deleting my blog altogether and saying goodbye to that venture but honestly, I don’t wanna. In short, I’m going to stick to my guns and make this my space (not MySpace…) and treat it more like a online diary of sorts. If I take a bunch of photos that I like and have no words to go with them then that’s a-okay. If I don’t post for a week or 2, that’s also fine. I want to get more consistent tho… no more 4 month gaps.
I’m so out of the blog loop, I’m not even sure if people even really read blogs anymore… I guess I’ll soon find out!
Oh, these deer are at Whitworth Hall in Durham and you can walk around them, feed them and make some new besties. 12/10 would recommend.
