[Blogging/YouTube] really is hard work, and without the passion for it all, it might get a little too much – Victoria Magrath.
Here we are again on the 1st of October. Let me tell you, as I write this right now, we are nowhere near the cosy Autumnal nights, the crunchy orange leaves, or the scent of candles in the air. In fact, it is the beginning of August and I have already scheduled a post for Blogtober. Yes, I am insane… but organised.
It struck me on the 1st August that I had an overwhelming urge to take blogging up a notch. I had been feeling a bit out of sorts about blogging, having moved, just gotten used to working a full-time job, as well as multiple trips back and forth to the North West for various occasions. Not only had my blogging taken a step back, but with a lack of Wifi and data, my presence on social media had all but disappeared. I felt like I was taking zero steps forward and all the steps backward. And so, here we are. This is my chance to prove to myself that I can blog daily as well as keep my sanity. I feel like every time I have challenged myself in the past, I have ended up seeing blogging as a chore, rather than a passion of mine. Right now, all I can feel is the passion and the love for creating content. That might change in a few weeks when I am inundated with blog posts left, right and centre, not to mention the rest of my life to lead. I’m going to try and keep momentum, keeping that blogging ball rolling and hopefully, by the time October actually comes around (past Faye speaking right now), all of my Blogtober posts will be written! Present Faye speaking: who was I trying to kid?!
I hope that future me has fully prepared present me for Blogtober (or is it past me??) this time around because usually, I pretty much give up half way. Either that, or my content is so shocking that it is hard to believe anybody took the time to read it at all. And the images? I don’t even want to try to remember the images I used to publish. It is safe to say that, although I am nowhere near perfect, my photography and editing skills have vastly improved over the years.
So am I stupid? Am I insane? Am I both? I’m leaning towards the insane side, rather than the stupid. I have so many ideas for the next month, that I would be stupid not to attempt Blogtober. I feel more ready than ever before. I have never, ever, planned this far ahead for any blog post, let alone thirty-one of them and I am really excited to share all of my ideas as well as post regular content. Watch this space and follow this mini journey of mine in trying to create top content whilst blogging every single day for the next month. It will certainly keep October busy!
Are you taking part in Blogtober this year? Tell me your top tips for daily blogging!
