I’ve been going through a lot of changes lately,mentally and physically, and feel like something needs to be done. Online it is easy to lose yourself and forget who you actually are as an individual and I feel like I need some time to figure it all out; what I want to do, what I want to write and share on my blog. Brand and PR opportunities are super exciting and you feel great when you get contacted but I can easily get sucked into directions I don’t want to be following and sharing/writing about things that I am no longer passionate about.
I read a fabulous quote from Alexandre De Batak articulating perfectly how I feel at the moment. ‘We probably have pushed it so far that they’ll want everything to be slow. They’ll want everything to be the exact opposite’. Everything in life is so fast paced it can seem addictive and exciting, but when I prioritise taking photographs of my dinner and outfit photos at the beach I just feel like I could be doing something more fulfilling and actually appreciating life instead of creating these photographic memories which are actually just posed ‘having a good time’.
I like to be an observer rather than observed and I have never been comfortable in taking outfit photos, I am not a natural when it comes to fashion blogging but I do love and appreciate Fashion. I feel like there are other roads I can go down to share my passion with you guys instead of ‘Outfit of the day’s’. I have so much emotion and interest in other areas and posting what food tastes good isn’t really resonating with me. Again, I love Beauty and make-up but I can’t stand taking photographs of my so called ‘face of the day’ because I can’t do make-up like a beauty blogger, and I can’t paint my nails all neat as they snap off all the time!
In a nutshell what I am trying to say is that my blog is based on other people’s ideas and constructions of what we should blog about– because everyone does it so to speak. So I am going to take some time to figure out the path I want to go down, but there is definitely going to be lots of changes.
