Why I Stopped Blogging

Hello everyone! Long time no chat. Speaking of chat, this is going to be a bit of a long, chatty post. In case you haven’t noticed. I haven’t REEEAAALLY blogged in over a month. I made a sad attempt at blogmas so I’m not going to count that. I feel like I owe you all a bit of an explanation, so here it is.

So a small reason is just that I’ve been so busy. I just got a new job and I’ve been working a lot, so that takes up a lot of my time.

But really, the reason is this: I have a bad habit of setting goals that are too high for me to reach. I wanted to blog every single day. A new post every day. If you have ever blogged before, you know that is a lot. Blogging isn’t just typing. It’s thinking of ideas, outlining those ideas, keyword research, business emails, taking photos, writing posts, researching hashtags, and that’s just the simple stuff. So this goals is basically unreachable and huge respect for anyone who manages to pull it off. So when I started to realize I couldn’t do this, I got really down on myself about it and just gave up completely.

I’ve basically just stopped writing completely. I used to write a lot every single day, but I just haven’t had the motivation for it at all. I can’t even explain it, but that is not like me at all. I love writing more than anything else.

I love blogging, I really do. When I am blogging regularly, I am happier than any other time. I like blogging about things I love, and I think this got away from me a bit. I know all of you love reading about vegan stuff the most. I totally get that. That’s how you all found my blog and when you are kind enough to visit my page, that’s what you are looking for. And I am not saying that I hate blogging about veganism at all, in fact I love it. But it’s not all I love. I think I put a pressure on myself to write about stuff that everyone loves that I forgot about why I started this: to write about things I love. And even thought veganism is among this, I also love blogging about planning, travel, beauty and so much more. So as of right now, I think this is going to be what I do. I’m still going to blog about veganism, but I want to throw other things in as well!

I want to post 2 times a week. Who knows, I might throw a few extra posts in every once in a while, but I think this is a realistic goal for myself.

I hope you all can understand this. I am also sorry if this post has any typos, I am not proofreading it because I want it to be as real as possible.

Thank you so much for your endless support and I hope you continue to follow me on this journey x
