DEAR BLOG #2



Back in January I decided to come up with a series of journals called Dear Blog and if you read Dear Blog #1, you will know that whenever I'm not quite feeling myself, I basically just write/rant about what's on my mind, good or bad.

I kind of neglected my blog for a few weeks to regroup because I was looking at what direction I wanted to take my blog. At the moment it's a mesh of lifestyle, travel, personal development, and the occasional rant lol. I'm not quite sure why I doubted myself because I like the fact that it's not perfect and somewhat all over the place.

This may come across as obnoxious or negative but I'm going to put it out there anyway... I get so annoyed when I see blogger's posting just for the sake of posting, yes I know that everyone can post whatever they want on their blog .. BLAH! But it irks my soul a little when you're reading through a rushed post or a product review and it's not genuine.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good product review and will also be doing some in the future BUT I will be 100% honest, especially if the product sucks. As a newbie to the blogger world, I guess this is something I'll just have to get used to.

I'll be the first to say that I do not have the best writing skills in the world and it's probably because I don't really read books that aren't academic. Call me crazy but I think writing about things that you love or hate in my case, in blog form, is artistic. I'm a lazy reader and I think that's why I love a good blog, you don't need a million followers, a flashy template and to post 5 times a week to have a good blog. As long as you're passionate about your blog, that's all that really matters.

Stepping away from my blog for a while actually made me feel a lot better and I had some time to think of some new ideas. If you're stuck or just feeling a bit de-motivated towards something, TAKE A BREAK and then come back to it. It does work in most situations and for now I'm just going to go with the flow.

Seen as this is a little journal, I better mention that I recently started a Youtube channel called Zina & Nessa with my friend Vanessa also known as VPTHEINTROVERT. Our channel will consist of lots fun videos and travel vlogs. Check out our channel and please like, share and subscribe. So far the support has been incredible!
