As my blog approaches it’s fourth birthday next month, I’ve been thinking about how far I’ve come with it. I’ve managed a total of 725 blog posts! That seams like so many and I’m really proud of the time and dedication I’ve put in so far. Yesterday I looked back at my first post which was just a quick one…
I feel like I’ve mostly stuck to my original aim, which was to create a happy place to share the things I love and make memories. I’m really happy with the path the blog has taken me on and all the opportunities I’ve had through writing it.
Recently though I’ve felt a bit like I need to take a step back from blogging, I’ve not felt so inspired and I’ve cut back from 5 posts a week to just 1. After managing 725 posts I’m not surprised that I’ve run out ideas a bit and haven’t known where I’m going with it. I’ve also cut back on going to blog events and accepting products to review as it had stopped being enjoyable and I was feeling under pressure to write when I didn’t always feel like it.
Looking back on some of my older posts inspired me to revisit old ideas and go back to basics a little bit. I’d love to start doing craft projects again as well as book reviews and history posts, and of course more baking, beauty and outfits posts, as I love writing those.
I’d love to hear what my readers favourite type of posts are, have you been with me since the early days? What type of posts do you enjoy most? Would you like to see a return to sewing and craft posts, more book reviews? Let me know.
In the meantime I’m going to be busy brainstorming ideas, making plans and making some time for all the things I love.
(P.S I wish I was still 26!)
