HOW MY BLOG, AND MY APPROACH TO BLOGGING HAS EVOLVED.

Before this little blog was born, I had a ‘very similar but not under my name’ blog for a good ol’ while, so I feel qualified at this point to look back at my blogging journey and see how it’s evolved over the past years.

When I look back, I feel pretty proud of all the stuff I’ve put out there, consistency is something, for the most part that I’ve kept up to. Obviously, not everything will still be as appropriate as it once was, but I’ve always tried to speak from the heart and be genuine along the way.

Blogging is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m sure I’ll continue at it for many years to come, but that’s not to say that it’s always felt super easy. There’s vulnerability hangovers, a comparison to the rest of the blogging market, and niggling thoughts at the back of my mind that maybe I should follow a different path.

Above all that, has been my passion for writing and a willingness to share and connect to others.

When times feel tough, or I crave comfort and light, I turn to typing on an empty page and things always feel a tiny bit better.

I sometimes worry that I don’t have a blogging ‘niche’, a go-to USP that I could use to describe what I want to achieve online, but I guess in the end, it’s just me. Sharing my story in my own, individual way. Whether that’s talking about what’s made me happy lately, life-stuff I want to work towards, or a bit of a heart-to-heart.

In the past I’ve tried to follow other’s lead, giving tips or advice that I don’t feel quite qualified to publish, or writing up things that I find labouring to talk about. I definitely feel like I’m over that part now, and I really do enjoy putting out these blog posts twice a week for you all, and well, for me really.

Who knows what will happen in the next few years, but one things for sure, if you need me, I’ll be here.

      Thank you so much Hannah, that’s so kind of you!

  • I totally recognize myself from that need to write posts that we’re ”supposed to” write. And failing at it because blogging is a passion project, and if there’s a post in your blog that you were not passionate about writing, it shows through.

    I try to keep my blog as honest as possible and I’ve got plenty of posts already (and plenty more to come) that were never published because they just weren’t real enough. And that’s how it should be 🙂

      I always try to write from the heart, and I think like you said, it totally shows! And it’s usually the more vulnerable we are, the more people appreciate it too.

  • I love your blogging style – and your pictures are always so individual!
