Blogging vs. Life

Hello blogging world, it's been a while.

I haven't actually sat down at my laptop and just written a post in well over a month now and I have mixed feelings about it.

I absolutely love my little space on the internet and I'm so thankful for all of the opportunities it has granted me and it's something that I really enjoy but it is HARD WORK.
I think anyone who reads my blog or looks at my Instagram who isn't a blogger won't realise how much work actually goes into getting that perfect flatlay and how keeping a blog going with 4 posts a week as well as replying to emails and editing photos is practically a full job in itself.
So when you actually have a full time job aside from blogging that has suddenly become so bloody overwhelming and intense, everything just gets TOO MUCH.

When normally I'd rush home from a 9 hour shift at work and happily be at my laptop working away on my blog for a few hours after that, recently I've been coming home, collapsing on the sofa and not doing much else. I've well and truly been stuck in a rut with so much going on in my work life, and I've been neglecting my blog and everything that comes with it.

But I think that's okay though.

Sometimes we need a bit of a break and refresh, and the world of social media and blogging is so all-consuming sometimes that it's hard to enjoy it wholeheartedly. I sometimes forget that my blog is just a hobby and recently I've been making it feel like a chore to write my posts - and no one wants that.

I really want to get back to enjoying my content again and being more creative with it instead of writing any old thing just to fill a space. I'm completely in awe of those gals that have their shit together 24/7 (or so it seems from the outside) and that manage to post regularly on their blog, Twitter and Instagram but for me, I've not found the balance yet but that's okay. I've unfortunately spent the last week off sick from work so I've had a lot of time with my own thoughts and to think about where I want to take my blog next and for the first time in a LONG time, I'm excited to start feeling better so I can put some work into my little baby and get back to doing what I love but with no pressure or expectations this time.

Wish me luck!

Have you felt similar to me at any point? If so, I'd love to know how you got your mojo back! Or if you're one of those absolute babes who has the balance of work and blog just right, I'd love to know your secrets!

Happy Sunday gals,

Always, Alice x
