Fresh Appearances and New Beginnings

16:00 Kelly Wheelhouse 1 Comments


Over the past 2 months I have been possibly the worst blogger ever. I haven't posted anything since September and in all honesty I was considering stopping blogging for good. I felt in a bad place about my blog due to there being a lack of viewers and a lack of following, but I have had so much inspiration recently that it has made me change my viewpoint about blogging altogether. One morning I woke up and thought 'you know what, if you enjoy doing something, keep doing it.' Because of this I felt a keen need to rebrand my blog and give it a clean new look as well as some fresh new content.
Since starting this blog I have been at a bit of a loss as to what it is all about. If someone asked me what genre my blog is I wouldn't be able to answer that because my content has been a bit all over the place. I had the same issue with my YouTube channel when I first started it. I questioned myself 'What is my channel about?' and if I can't answer that question then how is anyone else supposed to understand my content? I eventually settled into vlogging on my channel where I featured a range of daily vlogs and personal vlogs about my life such as Monthly Favourites videos. For my blog here I have questioned the same thing and still as I am typing this I am not 100% sure. I think many bloggers feel the same, but I never gave myself a chance to settle in to anything. I gave up before I could find the little space on the internet that I wanted to fill. I know that some bloggers may say 'I knew it instantly. I wanted to be a food blogger, mummy blogger, travel blogger, etc.' but I'm not a mother, I don't travel a huge amount, don't have the money to eat out regularly, I don't like makeup and I don't even own enough clothes to do a fashion blog. Those are a few of the main blogging genres and I think it made me feel even more lost as I don't fit into any of those larger blogging circles. But to be honest, to be a good blogger and to have passion I don't need to fit in. I have been the odd one out most my life- at school and college, I'm a different YouTuber to others, and I feel that I think differently to many other people. I want my blog to be personal to me. Something about my own life and my own feelings and I am not going to be quite so worried about what people think. If people want to read my blog then they can, and hopefully the readers I do get will enjoy the content I release.
The main things I will be writing about are two things that I blogged about before I lost interest. Those are personal lifestyle posts, and a few reviews of food establishments I visit. They are the two things I enjoy writing about the most and I feel that if I am enjoying doing something I feel more of a reward from it.
Please let me know what you think to the new look of my blog, and let me know if there is anything in particular you would like to see and read about here.
