I set up this blog 7 years ago to have as a bit of a diary of my life and its only been within the last few years that I've opened up about it to friends. I don't really know why I kept blogging a secret, maybe I was a little bit shy and embarrassed about it and I didn't want people to make fun of me for taking pictures of myself or to think I was full of myself. But as i've got older i've learnt not to really care what people think and actually the feedback i've had from my friends has been really positive and supportive.
If you follow me on Instagram (my favourite social media platform) you'll know that I've been getting a lot braver on Instastories and I have to say it's one of my favourite features on there now. I was a little shy at first and still absolutely hate hearing my Cornish accent but so many of you have commented to say how much you love my instastories and that I should vlog on YouTube. I have been toying with vlogging and actually do already have a YouTube channel with 2 very cringy videos on it. But I just dunno, would people actually enjoy watching me go about my every day life?.........answers on a postcard. Plus I would need to buy a vlogging camera too, where the hell do i start with that!
Im not entirely sure where i'm going with this blogpost, I suppose I just wanted to have a chat about whats been on my mind recently. I really want to create the most amazing content for my blog and I have all these wonderful ideas floating around in my teeny tiny brain but when it comes to putting pen to paper (so to speak) I get writers block! Or i'll read someone elses blog, compare it to mine and then want to just shut down my whole blog because it will never be as good as theirs. Its true what they say "comparison is the thief of joy". I think I've been putting too much pressure on myself and I just need to reign it in and stick to the basics and remind myself why I set up this blog in the first place - for MYSELF as MY life diary and to write about things that I love. So that's what i'm sticking to and i'm gonna stop beating myself up about everything else.
I hope you all had wonderful weekends
