I have struggled to post regularly for a while now and although I’ve blamed it on being busy, changing to a shift pattern and not a 9-5, creating like an actual crazy person for The Pigeon’s Nest and trying to stress-free my life by losing a few ‘non-essential’ elements…like cleaning the oven quarterly…I mean who does that? I used to…..but it is truly not required…and it only added to my ‘stress-headedness’…that’s a word right? The fact is that yesterday as I worked over the garden, popping in some runner beans with the chickens clucking away in their run, I realised why I really wasn’t enjoying blogging at the moment, and I started formulating a plan to get myself loving it again.
I think the reason I haven’t been enjoying blogging is that I have thought about things from your point of view…I mean how dare I! How dare I want to write what you want to read! I’ve been too unsure to do a review on my chicken house…which I LOVE by the way….. and have thought that nobody would care if I did a post on my gorgeous greenhouse furniture….which I am thinking about moving into the house because I love it so much….
The big secret is…..sometimes think I’m too boring to blog. I like car boot sales, crocheting, walking my dog, hunting in charity shops, playing silly games with my friends, growing food and saving money on my water bill……oh you like those things too? Let’s be friends forever!
I was worrying I was meant to be posting fabulous outfits, how-to posts that make people change their lives and pictures of my oh-so-stylish house looking clean and sparkling ALL THE TIME. The fact is, I’m sick of comparing myself and my life to all these fabulous bloggers who do this as a full-time job…I have finally got my head round that my photos will never be perfect, my how-to’s won’t always be photographed step-by-step (I forget!) and my life won’t always seem so darn peachy.
Let’s think of this as a fresh start shall we?
