The Weekend Blog – I’m back!
6th September 2014
I’ve returned from my blogging holiday! While I may not have been posting, I have still been working hard behind the scenes. I can’t stop!
It’s only been a week that I’ve been away from the blog but it feels like so much longer. I actually really missed it. But thank you for all your kind and sweet comments while I was away. They made me smile and reminded me why I love blogging!
To celebrate the fact I’m back, I will give away free advertising in the sidebar for a month for the first 4 people to comment on this post! Hooray!
One of the reasons why I took a break for a little while was to create a new posting schedule. This summer I have been posting every other day here on the blog. While I do see this as a great achievement, I found it hard work and I know that it is a routine that I won’t be able to keep up when I return to university.
With my new posting schedule I will try to post three times a week. This will be Tuesdays, Thursday and one day at the weekend (for The Weekend Blog). When my work load becomes too much (which it will) I will cut down to two days a week. This will be Wednesdays and, once again, one day at the weekend.
I still haven’t got my finalised timetable but it still looks as if I am only going to be in university two days a week. I keep telling myself that I still have to study hard on my days off. I am determined to get a 1st overall in my degree.
Also, during my break away from the blog, I took a little time to do some self-reflection. The one thing I picked up on is that I am way too hard on myself.
I always criticise the way I write, the photos I take, and just who I am in general. I have terrible commitment issues, and when I look back at my life there are many things that I have given up on too easily because I didn’t feel like I was good enough, or because I can’t handle criticism.
But that has got to stop! I have to remember that I’m always learning and always improving. If I don’t try or practice something then I am never going to get better at it.
So yes, my blog may not be perfect yet and you may have to put up with bad spelling and dodgy lighting in photographs for a while, but one day I’ll get it right. Even now I feel like I can look back and be proud with what I have achieved with this blog already.
I’ve come a long way and I’ve still got a long way to go. I’m in it for the adventure.
Side note: My customised comic book shoes are now back in stock on Etsy.com after my very first order (which was a complete success!). If you are interested in international shipping then give me a shout and I’ll look into it for you.
