Logging Off, Living Life

Thursday, March 15, 2018

 

Wow... it’s been 4 months since I’ve actually posted anything on here, 16 whole weeks.... that’s a long time in an age where everything is digital and instant.
Why so long you ask? Well if I’m honest I kind of just  Logged Off and Lived Life.

 I’m not really sure, what happened, I think I just became very disconnected from writing, from social media even and I still am a little bit to a certain extent. I just fell out of love with my blog, it happens.
I would sit and stare at the screen and try to think of words, of what content to create or the right description for an item of clothing... NO EMMA you can’t write this dress is ‘lovely’ again’  and.... nadda,.... nothing.....blank brain!
I think for me it started manifesting in the October I’d had a really shitty time with my health, I was still recovering and the thought of writing anything made me anxious, I would feel a pressure on myself  like a BIG knot in my stomach that wouldn’t go away and I hated that feeling and so I switched off.... I stopped writing, I took a mini break from my YT . I felt utterly exhausted from Social Media, and I BLIMMIN LOVE social media but some days it drains me even now and I know I’m not the only one that feels this.

And so taking time away was just the tonic I needed, it gave me clarity and really helped me focus on things that were more important going on around me, it’s amazing how much more refreshed you feel just by stepping outside of the social whirlwind and it’s something I really try to do more of these days. A night away from your phone and actually LIVING LIFE, rather than LIVING LIFE THROUGH A SCREEN truly is the best medicine and I feel almost free... (god that sounds dramatic but you get what I mean)
Anyhow, back to the blogging, I feel like I have a bit of my mojo back, I want to start dipping my nib in the inkwell and writing again.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am by no means a writer, I struggle at the best of times and there are thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions even, of blogs that are much better than this one, that create amazing content daily with wondrous pictures. But I’m not one to compete. I never have been.

I have always been a bit of what I call a ‘Blender’ I like to blend in, happy to spectate, let others jump ahead, take the spotlight if you like, y’know what i’m trying to say right? I am happy in my little bubble and I am totally OK with it.

Blogging isn’t my job, every aspect of my social media, even my YT channel is just a hobby for me.
A blimmin wonderful hobby, that has made me amazing friends, taken me to amazing places not to mention given me some of the BEST memories that I can look back on in years to come as a scrapbook  of life and smile. But blogging and vlogging doesn’t pay my bills. I work hard in my 9-5 and I love my job and so being able to pick and choose and leave things a while is a luxury for me I suppose.

As I said, I have kind of got my spark back to writing again, I mean it’s not the kind of spark that’s going to set the word alight but still, this little slice of the worldwide web is mine, all mine... to do what I see fit with and that's what I want to do and so expect more content from me, I’m not sure what yet, but come join me anyway, it might be fun.....
