Vulnerability post ahead…
I would like to say that I haven’t been posting as much because our household has been sick for the last three weeks, or because I have been busy with school… but that just isn’t the truth.
When I started blogging, my main goal was to help others through my own personal experiences…I never expected it to grow as fast or as big as it did. So, I started putting all of my efforts into social media and started focusing on insignificant details.
I realized that I could turn my hobby into a business and I started wasting time in certain areas that weren’t serving my original goal of helping others.
Don’t get me wrong…I have met wonderful people through Instagram, and have had a lot of fun creating content for it, but I slowly got dragged into the numbers game and started focusing on insignificant details that wasn’t useful for anyone other than myself.
I lost my love for blogging because I allowed myself to forget my main purpose.
I always said if I could reach at least one person then it would be worth it. But when I reached 1k followers in a short amount of time, I became obsessed with reaching more. I became obsessed with the amount of likes I was getting on each photo. For that short time, my focus shifted from helping others to helping myself and I am ashamed.
School did get harder, and it’s only going to get harder every week, but I am going to write as much content as I can because my goal is to help, inspire, or encourage at least one person in every post.
Thank you for your support and encouragement!
