You might have realised I’ve taken a break from blogging for a few weeks. I don’t enjoy writing blog posts that are all ‘Hey guys, sorry I’ve been away but…’ because there so apologetic and I’m not one to apologise for… nothing! I mean, this blog isn’t changing lives or anything!
That being said, whilst I’ve taken a break I’ve sat down on a few occasions and jotted down ideas of what kind of blog posts I want to make. The issue I’ve always had is I don’t have a theme which, if you’ve ever started a blog or read about how to blog, you’ll know a blog is supposed to have. Pick something, anything, and write about it. The trouble is… I could never ever pick one thing to write about. My whole life has been a whirlwind of over-active hobbying. I have never had one thing that I’ve stuck to as my thing. I read, I write, I watch TV, I do yoga, I like to take pictures, I have a dog, I like to dye my hair, I like to do make up and work out and play music and decorate and make things and and and and and! In all of those things I could pick one and blog about that, solely, but that would be denying myself the chance to share stuff, you know? I see some blogs and instagram feeds which have these themes and a part of me envies the commitment to sticking to something like that but I’m a gemini so sue me!
The list of blog ideas I’ve put together are varied and, above all, make me excited to start blogging again! A month or two ago I was enjoying it but I also felt stifled, like I should be producing a certain type of content but that’s just that awful feeling of conformity which I’ve always tried to steer clear of. Maybe I’ve blogged about this before? I don’t know, but I feel like I should explain the reason I took a little break and just make a promise to myself to let myself explore all of my interests (some of which might be cool and some of which might be just sharing things I like on the internet) without feeling like they don’t fit on this platform!
If you keep a blog how do you feel about the content you share? Are you a stickler for blogging about one main theme or do you like to mix it up?
