So it’s been a while. 4 months in fact and the year has even changed. I’ve graduated, got an actual proper grown up job and adopted a rabbit so a lot has happened.
I miss blogging so much, but it’s hard, really hard, well, to be a **fashion** blogger it is anyway. Back in the day when I relaunched JMB (and spent a whole lot of money doing so) i had 3 posts scheduled to go live weeks in advance. What happened? I moved back to uni and went through a break up, meaning I lost my ‘Instagram husband’.
When you don’t live with your mum, you’re single, your friends don’t have the patience for you to get enough photos and find the perfect light, put on weight through comfort eating your way through uni and have no money to buy clothes, blogging is almost impossible. There was the odd post that went up, from an impromptu day out with a friend, or family weekend away but other than that I have failed and I definitely shouldn’t still have the link to my blog on Instagram.
It’s also difficult to blog because whether we like it or not, blogging is dying. You can post your ootd on Instagram, but what’s going to make someone click on the post to see more photos of the same outfit? Unless you do that annoying blogger thing of not tagging where something is from and only putting a link on the post. Or if you have a lot of amazing things to say, and the photos just go alongside that. I certainly don’t have anything interesting to say. Another thing is that there are so many AMAZING bloggers out there, pushing the boundaries that nobody will really care about another girl, wearing a similar outfit who doesn’t have a K in her Instagram follow count.
This is one of these blog posts that don’t really mean anything to anyone, but I just felt that I needed to write it. Maybe to give a pat on the back to all those bloggers who blog no matter what, or to just give myself a kick up the backside and carry on with my so-called hobby.
Hope to see you again soon…
