As you may have noticed, I’ve kinda semi-disappeared over the last few weeks. First I was in Cornwall, then I was in Serbia, and since I got back from Serbia on Monday night, I just haven’t really been feeling the blogging vibe.
However, I have been thinking about my blog, and I’ve come up with a few things.
- I’m going to forget about the sponsored posts and stick with what I love. Lately I feel a little bit like I’ve been focusing on making all my posts about something very specific, and not necessarily going with what I want to write about. Maybe it’s the Blog Olympics, I don’t know. But although it felt like a great honour to do a few sponsored posts – there were a couple of book reviews, and there’s a chocolate review and giveaway going up tomorrow – I feel like I haven’t written about what I want to write about for a long time. So I’m going to forget about restrictions with sponsored posts etc, and just do what I want. Maybe get back into the habit of Tracklisting Tuesdays. We’ll see.
- I want to read and comment on other blogs more. I feel like with my writing, so too has my reading fallen by the wayside a bit. I also want to, instead of just thinking about what I could write as a comment, actually commenting it.
- I want to change my blog name. (and maybe go self-hosted). I do really like Books, Tea and a Onesie as a name, but I feel like it puts unnecessary weight on books, and doesn’t mention music at all, which is a bit of an issue. I also want to maybe try going self hosted, but I want to be really sure about my name before I do that. So, as I’m at a bit of a dead end…any suggestions?
- (Seriously, I would really like suggestions)
So the main gist is that I just want to forget about boundaries a bit, and go back to just blogging for the fun of it, which I felt I’ve lost a bit recently. With any luck, my blogging motivation will be back soon – watch out WordPress, I’m coming for ya!
(Again, please, any name ideas? ;))
Bye for now!
