I have taken a long hiatus from the blog world. Simply because I was having an internal struggle about the whole thing. As I kept reading new blogs that I completely fell in love with, I was fighting to grasp my own niche. Where do I fit in this huge world? I wanted to have an amazing blog for all of the wrong reasons. I kept posting things that weren't me because I felt like I had to. It became a chore. I wasn't being authentic and in the end selling out. So I left.
After the months of rethinking my stance on this blog, I had an epiphany. I started documenting my life for me. It wasn't about followers, a niche and it definitely wasn't a chore. When I did blog, I was inspired and wanted to show the best me, the real me. Sometimes I felt like I was the kid in the dodge ball line hoping not to get picked last. I wanted to be liked.
So for now, I may not have specific niche and the end I'm OK with that. Because I may not be a mom, fashionista, foodie or a super crafty housewife but I do have experiences that I want to share. Even if it is just for myself. It isn't about hundreds of readers, popular posts and being liked by all. It's about being authentic. It may not always be butterflies and rainbows, but who likes that anyways? No more fake.
