Blog Motivation

 
 Blogging is difficult ~ AM I RIGHT, EVERYONE?!
In theory, whether its writing, picturing, producing, promoting, whatever you want to call it, the whole process of successfully managing a blog can be challenging on whatever end of the spectrum you are. For me, I simply blog because I enjoy the process. I love having something to do on a weekend, I love planning what a photo may look like or what I'm going to wear out and picture it. It gives me a life away from work, 9-to-5 office work can seriously stress me out (I nearly cried because I nearly lost paperwork the other day #stresshead) so personally, blog is an escape and something to focus my mind to.

Away from all the love for it, it does ~stupidly~ stress me out sometimes. I can literally be for stupid things; not having any ideas, lighting being crappy (damn you British weather) and just generally no motivation.. Now that's a real killer. Its never as if I feel forced to blog (why would I) but its actually quite sad for me when I lose motivation. When every picture you take just looks shit, when you just have no words left to write and just when you feel like all your good ideas have been done (more than once) - it aint a good feelin'

To conquer this, I there is obviously no magic formula, you can't just click your fingers and boom you bang out 20 blog posts and are on top of the world. For me, its the simple things.
Reading a magazine is one. I mean, really reading a magazine, not just flicking through and drooling over the pretty Balenciaga handbags. Over the weekend I picked up the feminist issue of Elle magazine and the opening paragraph of the issue went into women's place in society and figures which are fighting through. Simple things like that for me (as probably cheesy as it is) makes me think, YES GIRL POWER, and I suddenly don't give a shit and blog all I want, haha I don't even think that makes sense.

Little things like gaining 4 followers on Instagram or having a great chat with someone on Twitter  ~LILY OBVIOUSLY <3~ can really lift my spirits as well, seeing others do so well or even gaining a sense that your actually not too shit yourself, can lift and make me want to actually prove I can sort of do this whole blogging thing... wow I don't have go off on one when I want to. You could say I have a little blog motivation lately, purely just down to being on a little bit of a roll, actually liking my photos (literally, in the least vain why possibly) and just generally not getting too absorbed into it. Sometimes I think you have to swoop a little low in loving something to climb back up and love it even more. Well that's what's happened here folks, I don't half love blogging again!
