For the past few weeks I’ve been feeling quite disconnected from the blogging world. I’ve spent a lot of time on other projects and my thoughts have been less focused towards my blog and social media accounts, but now I want to reconnect.
First of all I want to thank anyone who is reading this as without viewers my blog is nothing. Recently I’ve been slacking when it comes to my blog and that is down to a few different factors. The main factor is that my focus has been drawn to something else, something that makes me money and something I’m finding that I am quite good at. As this other factor funds my lifestyle I’ve been spending a lot of time doing that and focussing less on my blog, although my blog provides me with an income it’s not a guaranteed one. I’ve also lost a bit of love for my blog, I’m constantly in comparison mode and feeling like I’m just not good enough. There are so many amazing blogs out there that are so much bigger and better than mine and instead of motivating me to work harder they have made me feel deflated. I’ve also taken too much work on, I’ve agreed to collaborate with brands and write posts and take pictures that I really have no enthusiasm for. I still love beauty and skincare but I feel like there are only so many times I can describe a face mask or an eyeshadow palette without every post sounding exactly the same.
I am forever rebranding Reinventing Neesha but this time instead of rebranding the look and feel of my blog I want to rebrand my content. I’m still going to cover beauty but I want to diversify my content more. I want to write more about places I visit, about how I really make my money and about how I plan on turning a complete wreck of a house into my dream home. So that is exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to write more about whatever the fuck I want to write about and less about what someone has sent me to write about. I’m going to majorly cut back on accepting products to review and I’m going to focus more on what I really truly want to write about. My income from my blog is definitely going to plummet but I feel like I’m going to be much more creative in doing so. I want to write fucking awesome content that other people are going to be able to relate to and take something away from and I’m definitely going to swear a lot more, because that’s just me.
I know a few other bloggers are currently feeling the same and slightly disconnected from the blogging community so I’m going to make more of an effort to join in chats when I can, comment on other people’s blogs and generally keep in touch with others. Even if it’s just a quick #FollowFriday tweet or a retweet of their latest blog post I think I’ll feel a little more reconnected with everyone.
I’m really hoping to get back into the swing of things soon and produce some better quality content that I am truly proud of.
