Good morning readers!
Hope you all slept good, and are ready to face this (at least here in town) beautiful day! I started off this day reading a comment I got from a dear friend. She wrote;
I like the new design, and it makes me smile because I think for you creating the design is more fun than blogging.
It is so true, as for right now in my life. I truly love changing the design here – work on what colors to be presented, which pictures to put where, and so on. But when it comes to the blogging/writing part – it.is.so.freaking.hard. I’m going through a pretty tough phase in my life right now. I wrote a blog post back in the middle of August about my struggle on how much and what to share with you all here. So many things are private, and since I’m still in the middle of everything, it’s hard to share it. My everyday life is filled with different treatments and I don’t think it would be fun for you to read about that (and I’m not sure I feel comfortable sharing it all either). Who wants to read about that? Or do you?
Another perspective is that, I want this blog to be a positive and fun blog and not considered boring and sick. I truly hate the word: sick. I want to focus on L I F E, because I want to start living it for real again. If I would start writing about my everyday life with all treatments I’m going through, it’s focused on the sick part of my life, which I want to get rid of.
Ok, so what will I do? I believe I will continue in the same way I have been “writing” before and the design will probably change every now and then since I love changing it so much. One day, I might share a bit more of my story, but as for right now it feels better keeping it to myself, my love, my family, and closest friends. But you know what? I’m more intrigued by blogging now when I have a new design. So check back later on. Hehe. Thank you for you comment, B, because it truly made me think more about all of this.
Take care, and try to do your best out of this day!
Love the new design and I say what I always say. Write what you feel like. If you have a shit day and just need to get it out do – no need to go into private details and no need to feel “bad” for the readers. But if you feel like a sunny, sparkly feel good blog as a counterbalance to the struggles going on then do it. Sending you a hug x
Glad you love the new design and thanks for sharing your thoughts! It means a lot to me! Hope you’re having a fab Saturday. Take care, my friend! XX
I just read another friend’s blog yesterday in which she tried a tip she’d seen about becoming a better blogger. She wrote out a long list of future blog post titles, i.e. things that she’s interested in and would like to write about sometime. That way, if she ever feels like writing a blog post but doesn’t know what to write about, she can go back to that list for inspiration. It seemed like a really awesome idea. Maybe you could do that (either as a blog post or privately) so you have some ideas ready at hand for those times when you have the urge to blog. 🙂
Oh, that’s smart, thanks for the tip. Could be worth to try!
