I started blogging at the end of January this year. It kept me busy during the weeks that I didn’t have to study and gave me the structure that a university course normally would. Next week the last statistics course is going to begin, which means I won’t have much time to blog anymore.
Blogging takes time and effort. I am definitely not the first one who has said this, but it’s true, I’ve experienced it. If I’m not writing a post or finding topics to talk about, I’m reading other’s posts and sometimes comment on them. Like other social media, it has become part of daily life. I left Instagram and Facebook to be away from the feedback-culture; a culture that requires every user to have an opinion about everything and everyone. It made me insecure, and I fear that a similar thing is happening on WordPress. When a post like Diversity on children’s television doesn’t do as well as others, I can’t help but overthink it.
Having something else to focus on is going to be good for me. This is not to say that I will take a break or quit blogging completely. I have plans to discuss my love for Eurovision, current music obsessions, and my travel adventures. I’d love to share all that with you! And of course, there might people who want an update on my ukulele- and volunteering experiences. Not to worry about those either. What this does mean, is that I won’t be able to read other blog posts and interact with others every single day. Posts will be shorter than they are now, and only when I have time I will discuss issues related to social media and body image. There won’t be a specific day when readers can expect a post from me. I will try to share something with you at least once a week though!
I don’t know if it’s weird that I keep writing like I have hundreds of followers. But you know, even if there are only one or two people reading my posts regularly, it’s still important to inform them about what’s going to happen to my blog!
Thank you so much for reading. I hope you’ve had a great Easter and enjoy the rest of your week!
Lots of warm hugs,
