The last couple weeks, I took a bit of a break from blogging and interacting on social media and I learned a lot.
I learned that “going off the grid” is necessary at times and my life won’t fall apart if I don’t post a photo on Instagram once a day. I realized that life in the moment is much sweeter than it is behind a phone or on social media. I was reminded that my life didn’t need to be on display for the world.
I also recognized the fact that I missed blogging and the Instagram community that I have grown to know and love. I missed it more than I thought I would.
But, I realized that I had missed the point of blogging for some time now. I started this blog as a creative outlet, not as a business venture. I wasn’t hoping to make money off of it, nor did I have a plan in mind for extreme growth.
Making profit from a blog and focusing on methods of growing your audience is perfectly fine, but it is just not for me. Of course, I would love for this blog to reach a greater audience, but that isn’t the goal, at least not right now.
I’m a full-time student, with a job on the side. I am invested in a club on campus, in my social life, in my studies, and in my health, both physical and mental. I am not invested in making my blog a business.
But, I am invested in creating meaningful content and expressing myself creatively and genuinely. Even if my dad is the only person who reads every post (no lie, he LITERALLY reads and responds to every post :), I am still going to make content.
So, folks, I’m back. And it feels good.
Here’s what you can expect from me in the future:
- life updates
- college advice posts
- productivity/intentional living posts
- affordable style and fashion posts
Thanks for reading and supporting me through this change!
Enjoy your weekend 🙂
