I’ve just realised that it’s been over 2 weeks since my last post, and I thought I’d better offer some kind of explanation as to why I’ve been so bad with blogging yet again!
As you may know, I have now finished my second year of uni, so I don’t have any more of that workload, however my life now revolves around juggling a full time job on top of my increasing presence on social media. I am now doing weekly vlogs for my YouTube channel (link), and have been contacted by/contacting several brands to collaborate via Instagram such as a beautiful website called GraceBelle which features blog posts categorised into 4 ‘personas’: The Adventurer, The Creative, The Fashionista, and The Sweetheart- the former being the category that I personally feel I fit into the best as it’s centred around being a good person and ways in which you can improve your life and the lives of others which I think is really nice. I’m also working with an app called Hype which promotes things to do around London- sort of like a Dojo/Timeout thing- and so it takes up a lot of my time.
So in consequence, my blogging life has been severely slacking! However I don’t want to stop blogging as I am always thinking of ideas for posts, I just never get around to writing them! So my plans for improving are to put aside one day for each task to make sure that I actually get stuff done on time and produce quality posts and work.
- My weekly vlogs take up the most time as I spend all week filming and editing, and they are uploaded on a Sunday.
- My new blog upload day will be Saturday as it was before when I uploaded 2 posts per week, however I will only be posting one as a rule to relieve some of the strain and motivate me to actually get around to writing them!
- That gives me the rest of the week to focus on work and working with brands and apps without stressing about vlogs or blogs and my lack of attention towards them.
Thank you for being understanding and patient while I flounder about and get all stressy, I’m doing my best to keep on top of things now as I have missed sitting down at the computer and typing for a couple of hours- I’ve written two blog posts today which is a huge step from nothing in the last two weeks, and I feel really productive and creative for it! I promise I will be back as usual from now on and not to let things slack as miserably as they have done- I’m also going to be doing more varied content and letting people know what I’ve been up to as a way of sharing photos that I won’t Instagram and adding information that might be missed in my vlogs.
Lots of Love,
