Not Feeling Good Enough

I have had a bit of a break from my blog and social media in general over the past few weeks,which has been much needed. To be honest, I have just felt a bit defeated by it. Normally I am such an advocate for thinking its not about numbers or growth, but about enjoying posting, sharing my outfits and engaging with other like minded people. But recently I have felt just not good enough. I have put a lot of time and effort into improving my content, posting more regularly but I have seen no growth at all on my Instagram. Now I don't want any sympathy here, I am well aware that it is just Instagram and not real life, but I just feel like trying to post daily and improving my content just wasn't worth it to be honest. Let's say I just felt a little disappointed. Anyone else felt like that?

I have also felt so guilty for taking a break from posting, but why? I actually think it is so important to have a break from blogging if it is needed. so why do I still feel guilt about it. I know I shouldn't feel guilty but it is so hard when you see everyone else on Instragram posting new photos and blog posts daily. I feel like I am falling behind and slightly envy others that are able to keep up with regular posting. I just have to accept that everyone is different and I need to do what works for me and not keep comparing myself. I need to accept that I can't post as much as I would like to.

I am just in a little bit of a rut right now. Perhaps its the time of year, or the miserable weather? Or the fact I have other things going on in my life right now. I am actually moving flats this weekend.  I am moving into my first flat with my boyfriend that is not a flat share. I have always flat-shared ever since University and I am so excited that we finally will have our own place, our own space and somewhere we can really make feel like home. I am thinking about incorporating more lifestyle and home style posts onto my blog and Instagram so let me know if that is something your interested to see.

Sorry for a sort of rambly post today, but it feels good just to write how I am feeling. I hope you are all having a nice long bank holiday weekend.

Also quick shout out to the most fabulous suit I have ever owned in my life. Definitely my favourite outfit I have worn in a long time!

Have you felt like this before with blogging? Let me know!

  1. the blogging game can be heart destroying for sure! sometimes it feels people dont even read blogs anymore, then you go on insta and have to compete with the content and still see no growth, defo know how you feel. just have to keep going and doing it for you, the rest will come in time!

    Absolutely adore the suit! I'm so in love with pink and trouser suits at the moment! - x

  2. I find blogging can be one of the hardest platforms to maintain on its own because there's so much less interaction compared to youtube, twitter or instagram so it's easy to feel like no one's even reading. The upside is that people who spend the time reading blog posts are usually much more invested than someone just scrolling down an instagram feed, so the growth you do get is so much more valuable. xx

    1. That is definitely true, much more instant feedback on instagram but agree that the blog readers are more invested I guess. xx

  3. I think we all go through these episode and I agree 1000% that when that happens we need to disconnect and take a step back and reground ourselves with our purpose. Loving the message you are spreading here!
    Thanks for sharing
