Changes

























I’d like to apologise for my little blogging hiatus. I’ve had a few of them this year. There has been a lot going on behind the scenes in my life, I was unwell for quite a few weeks and that coupled with my lack of motivation to blog has resulted in my blog being abandoned for a little while.

I thought today I would write a little update post. I finally have an ‘office room’ so now that it has all been decorated I finally have a place to properly sit and blog. Above is a little snippet of what it looks like, how predictable is the colour scheme haha.

Other than that my lack of motivation to blog arose from a few different reasons.

As you may know last year I purchased a DSLR, stupidly I thought this would solve all the problems  I have been having with the lack of daylight. noob. But I have been getting to grips with all the settings and feel a little more confident in using my new camera now. Lighting wise I just need to make sure I make use of brighter days and take blog pictures in bulk like a few bloggers have suggested.

Another reason for my hiatus is that I just feel like I don’t quite know what niche I want to slot into with my blog. My blog is beauty and lifestyle and forever will be, I know that much but the style of posts is something I am working on. I want there to be a ‘theme’ almost in my blog (that probably doesn’t make sense, but it does in my head) 

Blogging for me is a hobby and forever will be. I never want it to get to the stage where it feels like a chore but lately I have. I am working on organising a schedule and putting aside some time each week to blog. I am all for quality over quantity, and I will only ever put up posts I am happy for others to read but that also makes me put a lot of unneeded pressure on myself. I feel If I spared time out specifically to blog that would allow me to write up posts and stick to a schedule somewhat. I have downloaded the WunderList app and hope this keeps me on track.


Moving forward, blog wise I will still be blogging about beauty and lifestyle - the style of the posts might change a little, don’t worry nothing drastic! I am also working on another little project will I will share with you in May hopefully.

This is turning into a longer post than I initially thought but I just thought I would get my thoughts out onto a blog post. I don’t even know why I wrote all this to be honest but to conclude, I will be blogging more regularly again especially now that I have my own space.

I want to thank you all for sticking with me, I am so lucky to have my blog and it makes me happy knowing you enjoy reading aleelily x

eta: I’ve just re read this post and its mush. Oh well.

  1. Try not to be so hard on yourself chick, I know it's hard when you want everything to be perfect and to fit into place but these things come naturally and develop over time, just be patient with yourself :) I think you have a pretty amazing, professional blog anyways!

    1. I'm glad you could relate, I suppose over time one does naturally fit into a niche.

  3. I have literally struggled with my blog for a good 6 months.. It's so strange because I love it and still enjoy it so much, I just have no motivation to do anything. I used to sit on a Monday and write 2 weeks worth of posts in one day. Now it can take me days to start writing a post and then days to finish it. I think I'll get my mojo back eventually, just takes a while.

    1. I hope you do get your blogging mojo back Daisy. I like you have days where I can sit and write a few posts but other days I lack the motivation to even open my blog.

  4. I understand exactly what you mean about blogging becoming a chore - ive let that happen myself, i got to the point where i was planning out posts in advance and then posting them for the sake of it whereas now i try not to think so advance and i won't post them unless i'm 100% happy. It's hard cutting back so much but i'm enjoying it more and i think my blog will only benefit from it.

    Hope you're well!
