Black, No Sugar - I've Fallen Out Of Love

I fell out of love and I hated myself for it.

For a long time I have tried to find blogging peace; changing platforms, changing names and completely stopping altogether.

I fell out of love with blogging after a few months of being completely and utterly in love with it.
As bigheaded as it sounds I just felt like I was putting all my time, energy and effort into blog posts that no one read or acknowledged. I promise I'm not being snobby or anything, I'm just expressing what I felt. I was spending something like 21+ hours a week writing, editing, taking pictures and promoting my blogging. I had let blogging take over my life and become my first priority. I needed to take a step back and reevaluate my priorities and schedule.

Things I have realised in my month hiatus:
  1. Not getting a blog post up isn't the end of the world.
  2. I run the blog: The blog doesn't run me.
  3. My biggest passion is beauty/ make-up.
  4. Writing posts for the sake of it is not the way to go.
  5. I had set expectations too high.
  6. So if you couldn't tell, I am back... If you'll have me.
Things I need to remember about blogging:
  1. Don't set unrealistic goals
  2. Blog about something I love: Not something that is "trending"
  3. Don't over promote my blog
  4. Change it up sometimes
Don't have a set schedule, just yet
 Speak soon,
