Love and Hate relationship with blogging

Hello! So it's Saturday again, yey! Witch is very exiting! I have been meaning to write about my personal relationship with blogging. So it has been coming for sometime it's just been sitting in the back of my head ripening and waiting to come out. I hope you share what you have thought on this post, I would definitely like to know what is your relationship with your blog.

Love and Hate relationship with blogging

Inspiration

Personally for me blogging has an equal amount of plusses and minuses. Like reading other's blogs is a plus it gets me inspired, helps me to dream what I would like to do, what would I like to eat or where I would like to go, so it's amazing. And then reading other's blogs is a minus for me as well as after I go away or go to work after I read about someone's  holiday in Bali it kind of causes a little bit of jealousy ... how lucky for him or her while I am sorting the laundry or doing washing up so it's kind of a reality check but it definitely helps to break it and set life goals or holidays for next year for sure:).

Living The Dream

Another one plus and a minus is looking at bloggers living their dream and living from what the blog provides. Hooray for them and it proves that we all can do what we want at some point in our life, whatever we want, but in the mean time it's work, work, work and blogging its just a hobby. I found this blog post from another blogger about what it means to be a full time blogger HERE. She writes that bloggers don't take holidays as holidays are the best time to get good content. Hmmmmm I don't know about that I am going on holiday soon and I am planning to just switch of my social media until I come back as I remember best summers was being away with family, away from the routine and the best part of September was to discuss those summer holidays with others (maybe that's why blogging is just a hobby for me hahaha).

Anyway,  I have been looking at some articles that suggest that media traffic slows down in summer months so why not to enjoy it? But here is an article about what to do if you still want to blog HERE.

Dragging in

I have never been so obsessed with being online like last year, it slowly reeled me in. Instagram and Pinterest are the worst hahaha. Once I start pinning something it reveals more and more beautiful and inspiring images that draw me in . You can find my Pinterest HERE. Instagram works just the same for me. Oh makes me want to do and buy so many things. In a way it's good it keeps wanting to do te best for myself; be healthier, happier, wanting to do better makeup, dress nicer. What's wrong with that right? But I caught myself thinking these girls looks so much better, healthier and happier so I start doubting myself. In a way it's good it shows there is room to improve but the negative side is that it lowers self-esteem.

But what I absolutely love about my blog is that it becomes a picture reminder for me of what I did and what I been up to in the last two years . Even its not all here but you know than I look at January 2014 my mind goes wild, it's like awwww yes I did that and after I went there even it's not all documented but my mind picks up on that small glimpses of life.

Thanks for reading I hope you enjoyed it :)
