Blog Reflection and Goals

by - 17:42:00

Happy Saturday everyone! 💚

My last post was about 3 weeks ago and I think at the moment I am having a serious lack of inspiration and creativity! I've not been great at keeping my blog active and that is also down to just being super busy all the time that I don't get the chance to do this, which makes me sad. 

But also, when I do get the chance to sit down and write out some blog posts I really lack the motivation and I feel like I end up writing a blog post just for the sake of it and I really don't want my blog to be like that. Lately the only blog posts I've really been writing is my monthly loves - and don't get me wrong, I enjoy writing them because it's nice for me to look back on my month as well and I guess give it a cute little summary of the best bits. But I don't just want my blog to be one post at the end of each month about my favourites in that month... 

At the moment one of my biggest flaws of my blog is not having a specific theme, I want to choose something that I love blogging about and make it a specific themed blog.. for example having a film blog, a travel or adventures blog etc. But this has always been one of the biggest struggles for me because I'm not interested in just one thing and when I've thought about it I always feel that if I go down the route of just blogging about films I feel like some days I just won't want to and will fancy writing about a different topic. So this is the main thing that I need to work on. 

My main goals for my blog

1. Try and work towards a specific theme for my blog, at the moment my blog is so varied and I feel like it just makes it a bit messy and all over the place.. so I need to have a little think on what my blog will be about.

2. Make time and effort for making my blog look good and create good content that I'm happy with. At the moment I don't have too much free time, if I'm not at work I'm spending my time chilling or having plans out and about and in order to be happy with my blog and make it as good as I can I need to take the time to do that. I'm a bit lazy when it comes to doing this to be honest... sometimes I finish at work quite early and I have like 7 hours left of the day where I can sit down and work on this but I decide not to because I'm too shattered, which isn't a great excuse but most of time when I finish work I just want to take a nap or play some games to chill out rather than use my brain even more writing out a blog post.

3. Continuing with writing a blog post.. I feel like another goal of mine is to not rush through writing a blog post just because I'm trying to get something out there. I feel like sometimes I write something quite quickly just because I haven't written a blog post in a while and so I just feel like I need to write anything just to keep my blog active. But I want to write blog posts that I'm happy with and haven't rushed for the sake of it. It would be nice to look back at blog posts and be pleased with what I have written. 

Something as well that I keep doing recently is writing out a blog post and forever apologising at the start for not writing a post for a while and then continuing to say that I will keep at it and do one at least once a week.. and no surprise.. I don't.

This blog post was kind of a little bit of information to keep you informed with what's been going on but also a little reflection and motivation for me with where I want to go with my blog. 

So I do apologise for rambling on, I just felt like an explanation was needed as I've been so terrible lately. Running this blog is one of my favourite things to do and I'm so proud of setting this up a few years ago and changing the look of it and even adding the extra codes to make my blog have cool little aspects to it and I want to continue to make it better - content wise especially but also the way it looks as well.
