Hello August, Hello Blog

Image: WeHeartIt

It’s been a few days since I’ve blogged so apologies for the lack of contact and communication but Dave and I were away for a few days in Spain with some close friends of ours and I decided to take a few days off.

If you read some of my posts last week, you’ll know that for the first time since I started blogging, I’ve been experiencing some writers block, and just doubting my blogging content and writing overall really.

Starting a blog was a scary endeavour, mainly because I began sharing my life with the world. So sometimes I wonder whether I’m doing the right thing. The right thing by me, the right thing by you, my readers.

When I’m going through times like this, I always come back to one thing – I love writing. But blogging is so much more than just writing. It’s photo taking, it’s idea making, it’s finding ways to write good, interesting content, it’s trying to find your niche, it’s trying to find a following. And that’s not always easy, it takes time, it takes patience, it takes effort, but most of all, it takes passion.

My little blog has been around for seven months now and sometimes I can’t believe I’ve got this far. I’m averaging about 2,500 views a month with about 1,500 unique visitors so it’s doing pretty well. I’m by no means up there with some of the brilliant bloggers that I love and follow, but I’m pretty proud of what I’ve achieved so far.

I do question myself, I do worry that I’m doing the right thing, I do wonder where it’s going to take me, if anywhere. I hope it takes me somewhere. I suppose the sky is the limit as they say, I just need to believe that it is so that I can reach for it.

But I’ve had a few days off to reflect, to think, to reevaluate, and now it’s time to get back to writing, and sharing my thoughts, loves, likes, interests and adventures with you all.

So on that note, I’d really love for you to comment below or get in touch on my facebook, twitter or instagram and let me know your thoughts on my little blog, what you like reading, what you don’t like reading, and help me steer it back on course so I can keep on growing.

I so appreciate all of you who take the time to stop by and read or like or comment, without you there wouldn’t be a blog. So from me to you… Thank you!

  1. Hello Sorcha 🙂 I hope you had fun in Spain!
    Sometimes a few days offline are just the best way to get everything in the right place.

    To answer your question, I honestly like to follow you and read about your journey – whether you write about it in a travel post or by sharing a list of things that made you happy in that month.
    I think people follow the blogger more than the blog. At least I do!

    For example, I follow an illustration blog of a girl who lives in the UK because I somehow relate to her and like to read about her days and projects (I don’t have a particular interest in illustration). I also follow a blog of an American mom of 4 with whom I can’t relate at all (her life is so different than mine!) but I like her photography and the genuine way she writes.
    On the other hand, I recently unfollowed some blogs because their essence changed too much since I started following them. They lost me but they probably also got a bunch of new readers who are genuinely interested in what they post now, so in the end it’s all fine.

    I guess you just have to share what feels right to you 🙂
    Even if you decide to change the dynamic of the blog, as long as you’re doing what you like that’s all that matters, right?

    1. Ines, thank you so much for your feedback and your honesty. I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know your thoughts. I too follow the blogger as opposed to the blog so it’s good to hear that others do the same.
      I suppose sometimes we just need some time out to reflect and make sure we are still doing something because we enjoy it. And I am. But I’m prone to worrying that maybe what I’m doing is not enough but then that shouldn’t be the reason you change or alter what I am doing either! I don’t think I will change the dynamic of the blog, but I definitely want to start writing more personal pieces, musings I suppose you would call them. I shall see where the wind takes me!
      Thanks again 🙂
