I'm Back & Plans Moving Forward

Hie! I'm back!

Lots to catch up on, I know!

Well, not really. I've still been quite active on Facebook and Instagram. Just didn't have the energy to put in additional effort to curate blog posts which usually takes more brain cells. 

See what I mean:

Instagram: Post a pic. Spend 10 -15 mins to curate a caption. Publish.

FB: Post a link / share instagram pic + write a paragraph of stuff = max 15 mins. Publish.

Blog: Choose 5 decent quality pics from the 65 I took + edit those pics = 60 minutes. Research subject matter = 45-60 minutes. Blog = 45 minutes. Edit = 45 minutes. Publish. Read whole post again = 15 mins. Re-edit because I always miss stuff the first round = 30 minutes. Publish. Edit 2-3x more. Publish again.


Anyway. This blog definitely needs to be updated more often. I realise that the reason I'm feeling blog-fatigue (totally made up word) is because I already spend a lot of time on Instagram & Facebook,  leaving me with not much desire / energy to spend any more time on the blog to basically say the same things, just with more words. It kinda feels redundant. It's actually to starting to feel like... work. Which was not supposed to be the point of this blog!

So this means I need to re-think my social media strategy, or maybe more specifically, my blogging strategy. It's going to take a while for me figure it out (because I'm a slow thinker), but the plan is simply this - some posts will be more succinct, less personal even, allowing room and energy for (hopefully) more personal opinion pieces. 

I believe most people are already on instagram and Facebook anyway for current updates, while blogs have turned into a secondary reference point, or a result of a Google search. But I could be wrong - let me know your thoughts! 

Meanwhile, thanks for watching this space. Regular programming will be back after this.:)
