I've been feeling really demotivated with my blog recently, every time I've got to write a blog post it's just blank. I'm most certainly not going to sit and blog about things just for the sake of it and it wasn't until I read this post by Gemma that it all clicked into place.
I read blogs all the time, blogging is such a big part of my life and has been for a few years now. I've spent so much time investing myself in my little corner on the internet that it really frustrates me when I can't find the inspiration to blog. The thing is, I feel that because I don't blog about the latest mascara releases or shop the expensive brands that I'm not worthy of calling myself a blogger which is absolutely ridiculous! I am well aware that this is just pressure I put on myself and I've always tried to remain honest and open on my little blog and I do not blog for others, I blog about things I like, I enjoy, I feel. I guess I just shoved myself into a box and the lid wouldn't budge.
For me, Gemma really hit the nail on the head, I absolutely love her blog because it's true to her, who she is as a person, her honesty is refreshing and when I read her blog posts I feel like she's talking to me (in a none creepy way). This is why I love her blog, not because she takes pictures on marble backgrounds!
I don't want to put myself in this stupid box any more, I'll blog when I want to, about whatever I want or however I'm feeling. So what I don't own that By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock... I probably have a cheap dupe from Boots in my collection instead!!
