I have been really struggling with this blog lately. As much as I love it to pieces, over the past few weeks, whenever I have sat down to write something, my mind has just gone totally blank. Even though I have been doing it for years, sometimes I just feel completely lost and out of place in this whole blogging game. I’ve just been feeling like I don’t really fit in anywhere, I am quite a shy person and even on social media I have found myself talking less and less. I hate that I started to feel this way and knew I needed to take a step back – the house wasn’t going to decorate itself anyway, so I used my free time as a perfect excuse to start.
So, I took a few weeks off from blogging and social media, just popping the odd post up here and there. When I’m feeling like this, the old social’s really don’t tend to help me out too much! I find the constant pressure and comparison that can be found on social media so tiring. It got to the point that I started to think of ways I could change this blog to fit in more, but what’s the point, I blog about what I love and the minute I stop doing that, I become a fake. Which I would never be.
After a little while off, I feel so much better and I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t really care if I fit in or not, I mean what exactly am I trying to fit in with? There are no blogging guidelines or rules.
I don’t really know what I am trying to say here, but I just wanted you all to know that I have had my little blip and The Mini Mermaid shall continue better than ever…
