Falling In Love With Blogging Again..

fluttershy funko pop falling in love with blogging

One thing that I have really started to fall in love with again lately is this little blog. I started The Mini Mermaid as a little happy place for me to escape to when I had a few hours spare. Over the years, I must admit there have been times where I feel like it had lost it’s purpose a little bit and I really wondered why I carried on. I will be completely honest, there have been moments where I have sat and wondered why I don’t get opportunities that others do and I rarely get contacted by brands. Sometimes I do sit and wonder where I am going wrong, but the fact is, I have never stopped enjoying this space and I am actually really proud of what I have created. Jealousy is an ugly thing and it’s definitely taken for me to stop comparing myself and becoming obsessed with stats for me to properly enjoy this space again.

Social Media on the other hand is a whole different ball game. There just seems to be so much negativity around recently and I am not enjoying it at all. The online world has just become a little oversensitive at the moment, it feels like nothing is open for debate anymore. It’s almost as though there is only one opinion allowed and nobody can have a discussion without the drama lovers appearing. Don’t get me wrong some of the comments are justified but then some of the things I read I just can’t help but eye roll. It’s a shame as I used to be able to log on to Twitter and have a fun, engaging conversation, now it just feels like there are people on there lurking, ready to drag the next person down. I don’t really use Social Media as much as I used to at all, it’s either Twitter being annoying or Instagram doing everything it possibly can to work against people. I’m finding it really draining at the moment.

I am hoping I can move my love of blogging back over to Social Media too. I do hope that you enjoy reading my posts as much as I still enjoy writing them and I want to thank you all for still sticking around. I also hope that Twitter becomes nice again and Instagram change their algorithm back. Well, a girl can dream right!? ❤

    Yeah social media, especially Twitter, is just a cesspool of negativity. I’ve tried to curate my social spaces to not breed that and I rarely get into long debates on the platform.
