I sincerely apologise for the very long hiatus. I've been gone for over 5 months! I've still been fairly active on my Youtube channel but not nearly as much as I would like to be.
The thing is, I've sort of lost my passion for blogging. It has become so common now, you can barely click onto any instagram page without seeing a link to a blog in their bio, and I feel like my blog, which I have been running for almost 5 years has not developed as I had wished. When I began, there were only a handful of Irish bloggers and it was a dream of mine to grow my blog to be as big as the likes of SoSueMe or even Zoella in the UK. My YouTube channel has had a bit more success, with 2,450 subscribers and while I'm grateful for all of those people who have taken time out of their day to watch my videos, I have just begun to question my efforts. I put so much effort into videos and blog posts and to what avail? I know I'm being very negative about the whole thing but it has just been playing on my mind for the past year and a bit. What does one have to do to get recognised in a world bursting with lifestyle, beauty and fashion bloggers who have much better resources and equipment than I do?
Just a few of my thoughts, and writing this has reminded me of why I started; a love of writing and the need for a place to share my opinions.
Talk soon hopefully,
