I Am Back! Why I Almost Quit Blogging.

Hello Hello, lovely humans!

I’m currently sitting here writing to the backdrop of what was supposed to be an August rain but is slowly turning into a thing this October (let’s blame it on global warming, right). As usual, I have in front of me an empty mug of the finest black tea ever made on earth (not going to mention names) saying to myself for the hundredth time that it’s time I write this blog post.

You might have noticed (well even if you didn’t notice, now you know…lol) that i have been absent on here for almost a year. Yikesss!!! That’s a really long time right! As at the time I decided to take a break, I wasn’t dishing out my finest blog posts, i wasn’t as inspired as I was before, I then decided i needed to relax, regroup and seek inspiration. I needed to get back to why I started blogging in the first place.

I have a 9-5 job that pretty much takes up my whole day (most 9-5’ers say this….I am sure) which made writing a little harder especially with me getting home and all I want to do is take a shower, dinner and roll into bed.

Another dent in writing again was when I lost one year worth of blog posts on my website due to negligence on my part that made me think if blogging was all worth it. I then decided to take the website down and work on getting it back to what you all loved (which honestly then was when I felt like)

2018 rolled in and I got questions from you all asking when the site would be back up and I usually responded soon. Yet here I sit on this cold October night asking myself why my soon decided to wait this long to get back into the blogosphere (technically, i never really left since I was always updating my social media channels especially instagram).

One lesson I learnt from this break is not to let the busyness of life stop you from doing what you are passionate about. Keep looking for ways to consistently stay on track be it through magazines, nature, people…..whatever it is.

In the meantime, I have decided to share with you all why I decided to blog again…..let me re-phrase, what made me start blogging in the first place;

● To share my personal views on fashion and beauty.

● To let you in on my lifestyle.

● To share my love for art.

● To help empower someone to be a better person in every aspect by sharing motivational, growth and informative posts.

This leads me to a quick question or assistance from you all; if you have any insight as to what you do/don’t like when reading a post, it would be really helpful. As a blog reader it can sometimes be hard to pull myself from the perspective of a “blogger” and see things from the other side, so your input would be an extra treat. I want this blog to be extra special not just for me but to you my readers also.
