This week there have been no posts on the blog and it's the first time in the nearly 5 years I've been blogging that this has happened. And for the first time in those 5 years, I don't mind! I don't have blogger's burn out, or have nothing to write about, it's the opposite really. I just wanted a few days where I wasn't spending hours taking photos and writing posts.
I don't get paid for blogging apart from the very rare sponsored post. Contrary to what you might think, there isn't much money in blogging and I do this as a hobby that someday will turn into a business! July has always been a wonky month for me and this July has been wonky, but for completely different reasons. I've allowed myself to take the weekend off and just relax. I've allowed myself time to watch films and do nothing, but this time I've not let myself feel guilty over it! This is a completely new concept for me!
Creating original content every day is time consuming whether it be blogging or filming. You have the taking of the photos, which can take a while if you're a weirdo like me, the editing of the photos, the writing of the post and that's without the whole social media aspect of it and for filming, I have to do my hair and makeup, film, edit, upload and all that extra stuff. I'll never be one for microblogging on Instagram or Facebook because I want you to be able to Google stuff and find it on my blog.
Lovely Girlie Bits turns 5 in September and I'm really excited about the future of it all. But for the rest of the week possibly, I'll be taking it easy! Wait and see, I'll have a blog post up tomorrow now after all this waffling!
So in the words of Arnie, I'll be back. Just not this week. I'm going to see Magic Mike tonight with Joanne for cultural reasons obvs so that takes precedence over blogging every time!
Make sure to follow me on Snapchat to keep up to date with what I'm up to. My ghosty man is on the side of the blog there and I can be found @lovelygirlybits so see you soon!
