Less Is More

I don’t think I’m a very good blogger, I mean I post regularly but I’m no longer sure why as my intention for this blog has gone way off track. Maybe it’s because I’ve spent so much money setting up a professional site for my upcoming work and projects, I kinda don’t want to feel like I’m wasting it by letting it sit here gathering dust but that’s definitely not the answer.

Like all bloggers I think I have something to share,  that I can put a new spin on old story, shed some light on a problem, maybe I share because I just need to get something off my chest and I inadvertently go off on a tangent by writing long and rambling posts. I get that I’m never going to be one of those popular bloggers, I’m too opinionated, too honest and I never play it safe. I came to the stark realisation off the back of a comment someone made about losing advertising deals because they were ‘too’ political that maybe my ranting and raving could be putting people off or the other stark realisation, I’m not saying anything new or interesting. Don;t worry this is not a pity party I’m not looking for sympathy, I’m simply stating that it might be time to take a break from blogging to concentrate on building this site for what I originally intended, which is a portfolio and shop for my work.

The other day I had an idea for a project, it’s going to take time, research and learning to create it, along with making things for my shop and various other projects I’ve started I need to reevaluate how I split my time. I’ve let go of blogging before, I can let go again. I said in a previous post I should save my long and wordy posts for a novel, which I really should finish, if I’m going to then something else has got to give way.

Social media is changing, it used to be about cross posting to every platform which is time-consuming and a little repetitive but now I think it’s more about picking your platform or two of preference and working with that. I like Twitter and Instagram, I’ll carry on sharing my sewing and projects over on Insta because I like that I can do a quick updates on instastories, as it’s little like vlogging but less about perfection, no editing required and also deletes after a while. After deleting my vintage account, I finally set up an account for my adventures in photography, I was inspired to finally take the plunge and share more by Yasumi from Worship Blues and her fabulous project Super Ordinary Life.

Maybe I’ll change this from a blog to a news section in regards to work releases and whatnot but I’m definitely going to be working on getting this site to what I need to be. Anyway I’ll stop rambling now and if you see changes you know why.
