Lately, I seriously haven't been able to keep up with this blogging lark. Mainly because I haven't had the time, majorly because I haven't wanted to. That might sound bad, but I've always tried to be honest with my readers. I know full well that blogging trends and what and who is 'in' change like the weather, I've been doing this for five whole years now. It's quite hard at the moment, I know that people don't want to constantly read about pregnancy. I have so many ideas to blog about, I just can't fit it in right now. I can't 'fit in' at the moment, don't particularly want to in all honesty. All I want to do is eat, sleep and listen to 'Party Songs I secretly love' on Spotify. I don't want to buy anything marble to take pictures on, I don't have time to style my Instagram pictures, I don't have time to re-arrange my Pinterest boards so they are more commercial.
Basically I don't have what it takes to be a blogger that holds people's interests right now. All I see lately is 'How to...' blogposts, I've never liked blogging rules. Especially when this is supposed to be a creative outlet, a slice of your personality and a space where you reflect who you are as a person. If we followed the rules, we'd all be....well a marble surface. I think a lot of people feel they have to try and be the same as everyone else to fit in...I'm guilty of it too sometimes. Everyone has different personalities and traits that set them apart from others, and all I see in the 'blogging world' is people hiding that, covering up their true self just to try and acquire what others have achieved. It's a slippery slope that, extremely hard to keep up a pretence.
I know nothing will change, because that's just the way things are now. I've totally and utterly accepted it, nothing and nobody is right or wrong and absolutely everyone is entitled to do exactly what they want. I guess it just makes me a bit sad, sad to think that people lose interest if you don't have the latest collection of something or that you don't have perfect Instagram photos. I'm a happy human, I have a happy life...I might be a hormonal mess on occasion, but 90% of the time I'm smiling. I mean right now I'm listening to Ke$ha 'Your Love is my Drug' and I'm not even remotely ashamed...but then I've never fitted in. I'll remain this square peg in a very round blogging world hole and I will be completely and utterly fine with that.
