The blogging world is such a fabulous place. Every time I log into my blog, there is always a new lovely comment on my recent blog post, or one of my blogging gals posting a FAB new post. It’s a place brimming with positivity and inspiration, and I’m SO pleased to be a part of it for almost two years now.
However, the ‘blogosphere’ is a place home to SO MANY amazing bloggers, so it’s incredibly easy to compare yourself and your blog to them. I CONSTANTLY compare my blog to others online…and sometimes it does make you feel a bit CRAP. I want nothing but success for every blogger out there, but I’m sure we’ve all been there when we are unhappy with our Instagram theme, annoyed at the lack of views on that one blog post you were SO PROUD of and a million other things. So, what I’m saying is that lately, I haven’t been too happy with my blog.
I haven’t been content with my blog lately. I LOVE every single reader and the interaction is so amazing, nothing makes me happier. But I want to up my game a bit over here. I want to step up the photography, the number of blog posts and my interaction with other bloggers and readers.
That’s why I have now decided to become self-hosted. Being self-hosted is something that I’ve always longed to do, mainly because of the annoying ‘wordpress.com’ at the end of my blog address! But it’s something that is going to drive me to work harder here on my blog. The new stunning theme that I am OBSESSED with may also be working a bit of magic on my motivation…but I am so looking forward to really stepping up my game here on ThoughtfulTash!
Throughout the constant comparisons of myself to other blogs, I’ve realised that this blog is a true representation of ME. I am in no way perfect at all. So I’m not going to worry if my photos all have the same theme or are in different filters, or that I haven’t seen a certain type of blog post like the one I’m about to publish. ThoughtfulTash is ME. I am TASH. So I’m going to be posting about things that I am passionate about or have a huge interest in; from growing your confidence, a makeup collection or my new favourite candle.
So, I hope you’re all looking forward to the future of thoughtfultash- because I’m BUZZING about what’s coming up! Blog posts should now be coming TWICE a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays which I’m so excited about as there’s more for you all to read! I’m also planning on working harder on my photography for both blogging and Instagram as well as reading more of YOUR blogs- so leave your links down below!
