♡ Why I took a break from blogging ♡

About a month ago, I've decided to take a little break from blogging and I'm sure some of you haven't even noticed because I know that we are all busy at the moment of the year. First, I want to say that blogging has always been a fun part in my life especially over the past few months but I never considered myself as a 'blogger' because it's a big word in my opinion and I don't think I have the talent most of the bloggers out there have.
At the beginning of the year as one of my resolutions I've decided to put myself first and do what I love. Unfortunately, I feel like I compare myself too much with other bloggers and I sometimes found that my pictures or even my blogposts weren't really interesting. I try my best to put my heart into my blogposts but I know that I can't be as good as some bloggers, mostly because English is not my mother tongue so every blogpost I publish needs a bit of a time. I also felt some pressure concerning my blog views as sometimes the views were low despite the fact that I spent hours writing and taking pictures for a post.
The beginning of 2017 was so stressful and even though I feel like blogging is my little bubble of happiness, I was too anxious and worried about my finals to think about writing any blogpost. I've tried many times to push myself to write a blogpost but everytime I felt like it was boring and useless. Yep, writer's block ! With hindsight and a bit of thinking, I know now that I don't need to compare myself to others. I also know that I'm not the most talented blogger and sometimes I feel like my writing isn't that great but I do what I love and I want to push myself forward.
January blues hit me. Due to the cold/dark weather, all of my pictures were blurry and dark and I wasn't happy with them at all. After two weeks of exams, I also managed to get sick and it was horrible. I was poorly during an entire week and everytime I wanted to take pictures or just write a post, I was feeling extremely tired.
Finally, I think that I needed some rest to really think about what I wanted to do with this blog. This year, I really want to go self hosted and have my own website and I was thinking on maybe changing my blog platform. After this little break, I want to improve my blog, make it look more professional and keep doing what I love without comparing myself to others.

I'm so glad to be back ! x

  4. Hi I am new reader on your blog and i wanted to say I used to blog too but I stopped because it got too hard. Stresses increased when exams came and it gets hard to post. I've stopped now but I still love photography and writing but I just don't publish it. I am glad that you have motivated yourself and will continue with your blog. I love the way your site is put together and I think your pictures are amazing. -FlutterThoughts xo
