And without anybody realizing, another month has nearly flown by. 2017 is seriously going by way too fast! March has been an eventful month, both school-wise and life-wise. Despite everything I feel much better now and I am excited about blogging again. Now enough with the rambling and let's get to the actual point of today's post where I have rounded up some of my faves from March.
Here I am yet again after disappearing for nearly a whole month from my blog. Shit happens and I won’t apologize this time. It’s currently 11 at night and I’m really tired so what will follow will mostly just be me word vomiting every single thought that I have on my mind. So be warned.
I have been blogging on and off for over two years. My blog is probably the only thing that I have ever been passionate about as I have never had a hobby that I actually enjoyed before so it is really special. But recently I haven’t been feeling the same.
I don’t even know the reason why I stopped blogging in the first place. To be honest it was a long time coming. The last time that I had properly blogged was in December when I was doing blogmas. I have only put out a couple of posts since the new year and I just felt like the whole blogging thing was starting to get overwhelming and what once made me happy, it now just stressed me out.
This stress stemmed from a lot of things. Firstly, I was stressed by the feeling that I need to write a post. This only made me feel unhappy with the posts that I finally managed to put together as they were not up to my standards. I felt like the writing was terrible and did not actually reflect what I wanted to say. They were just words that I put together in a hurry while trying to meet the deadline that I had set in my mind. All of this resulted in me burning out.
I no longer felt willing to sit down and write, take photos and edit. I began to see it as a chore instead of a hobby. I began to question myself a lot. Why were my posts so bad? Why were my photos never bright/good enough? Was anybody actually interested in what I was saying? All of these why’s!
So, for the past few weeks I just couldn’t write anymore. I blamed my exams for not writing but at the end of the day, I realized that I was actually just falling out of love with my blog and anything that had to do with it.
Suddenly Instagram and Bloglovin were just a place for me to feel worse about my content. Twitter was something that had never gotten the hold of and my tweets were just a bunch of links to posts which were probably there for nothing. I missed out on twitter chats and saw all the bloggers around me just having fun and I was there just observing.
