I know I was feeling really happy with my blog last month with the views but I am also now really feeling the pressure to post often, with a constant high standard of writing and photography, which is going to be harder now I am back at uni with lots of work to do. Blogging will always be a hobby to me but it's a hobby I want to be good at!
I've also really started to feel pressure to look or dress a certain way. I am starting to do more outfit posts but I feel I don't dress the way fashion bloggers should. I also don't feel like I have the right face for it. I also rarely wear make up and in a community where everyone is a little obsessed with make up and beauty I feel a little overwhelmed. I am still figuring out what make up looks good on me and still do really basic looks. I just feel too intimidated by all the beautiful bloggers around who are also awesome at enhancing their beauty with make up! I do want to get better at make up, but I don't want to start wearing it every day just to fit in with the bloggers. I used to be happy with my face, especially without make up. Now I'm starting to feel any photo of me is inadequate if I'm not wearing at least three eyeshadows, an eyeliner and a lipstick on my face.
I worry it's these things holding me back. But if it is I'm not going to give into them, I'd rather stay true to myself. So I'm going to try releasing the pressure off myself and have more fun with blogging.
I (obviously) care what you guys think, but having you few lovely followers who always comment and chat and read my posts means so much to me and you guys are the ones who'll stay when I'm not following blogging trends, and you're the ones who I want to stay! Much love and hugs! xo
