Hi sweeties, just a little personal update for you guys! As you may have noticed it has been a little bit silent on the blog lately.
End of 2015 I already had struggles with creating content for my blog. I really was dealing with some blog issues. I had no energy to do shootings, answer my emails or thinking about new topics. Still I didn’t wanted to give up my blog. I had a tight schedule and everyday their was a post online. Unfortunately because no lack of energy I was breaking my own schedule. I didn’t post everyday anymore and my frequently topics like ‘The Blogger Spotlight’, ‘Tips’ and ‘Insta Diary’ I skipt.
In the beginning I really felt bad about it, but actually it’s okay. Let me explain! It started as a hobby, but it became more. Included the expectations. I wanted more and more as fast as possible. I never wanted to be a top blogger, but I’m going to lie if I tell you I didn’t wanted the success. Of course I wanted that awesome collab with a big brand, of course I wanted all the press trips and yes I wanted attend every cool event. Four (almost five) years I work hard on my blog beside my full-time job. Meaning; Midnights editings and making post, attended events in Amsterdam for networking ,weekend shootings and give up my social life. You can understand how exhausting it was. Still I never mind, because I love doing it. I really can’t imagine myself without my blog and I would do it all over again. Thanks to my blog I finally found the job that I wanted. I’m Campaign Manager at Influentials. I connect influencers with brands. I really love doing it, but it’s also the mean reason why I have some blog issues. Because I work the whole day with Influencers and brands I don’t have the energy to work on my own blog. Like I said I never can or will give up blogging, but i decide to take a step back. No schedule, no planning, no expectations. I want to focus more on my job and my blog is just a hobby in my life.
So nope, my blog is not dead but don’t expect an every day post.
