I’ve been thinking a lot about my blog recently. My approach to blogging, the content I want to share, and what I want other people to come on this site for, too.
I think in life it’s easy to overcomplicate things. We give ourselves deadlines and strict schedules, and along the way something that was our joy, gets lost a little. I suppose that’s how I’ve kind of been feeling about blogging too, if I’m being totally honest. It was getting to the point where I was putting out posts I didn’t feel excited about, and feeling like it was something that I had to do, no matter whether I wanted to (or more importantly had the time to do, in a busy week).
Over the last two weeks or so I’ve stripped it back a little. I don’t have a schedule (yes ideally I’d like to post twice a week hopefully, but it’s not the end of the world if that doesn’t happen). I’ve wrote posts that I’ve drafted right here, from the notes app on my iPhone that I’m using now. I’ve spoken about stuff that I’ve been passionate about, and sharing things that have been on my mind. It’s felt freeing. And I want more of that.
I’m taking the pressure off to write in a certain way, or about certain popular topics. From now on, I’m just going to share me. My content won’t change and you might not even notice a difference, but I do already. And it feels great.
What’s your approach to blogging? Has it evolved over the years?
