blogging routine? blogging series? goodbye to you both...for now?

I've felt the need to write this for a while now. Myself & a blogging routine really doesn't seem to be working out at the minute. I can't seem to grasp one & I'm not going to be harsh or beat myself up about it. Sometimes it just isn't possible to have a routine & I'm ok with that.

For me, having a routine takes the fun out of it a little bit. Let's be honest, blogging should be a fun thing to do. Regardless of what you are blogging about. But don't get me wrong I have nothing against people who have routines & who schedule their posts, but it's just not for me.

On to blogging series, I've had a few over the past year or so...'monthly movie', 'Sunday sharing', 'Hey, let's talk about...'. But they all seem to come to an end because I end up feeling a little bit pressured to post them on the same day every week & to create something worth reading. I do also feel like I'm cheating a little too, instead of sharing a book I've enjoyed reading as a post I just end up throwing Sunday sharing infront of the title. For me I think things always work out better when you don't have to force yourself.

Ok, there we have it. I've shared what I've got to say on the matter.

Today has been a bit of an easy relaxed day (they genuinely don't happen often) so it is so lovely to have one. Not necessarily one by choice to be honest, one by recommendation...recommended by my mum, that doesn't usually happen. But since this morning I almost passed out (that was an absolutely terrifying experience, I don't think I've ever been so scared) she has told me to take it easy, mums know best right?

I've been thinking over the past week or so of different post ideas that I'm going to put together over the next couple of weeks, hopefully!

So, what are your opinions on blogging routines & series?
Let me know? :)



p.s. want to know a little secret?

I'm going to see ONE DIRECTION next year!!!

Are you going?!

*whispers* I'm totally not excited about it or anything, got to play it cool...

  1. Honestly, I hate the idea of having a set time to post, or a set series or schedule or anything. When it comes to blogging or writing in a diary or whatever, I feel like you just need to do it when you feel like it. Write about something when you're feeling passionate about it or you just feel like sharing.

  2. I'm kind of on the fence about this one - on one hand I think they're an excellent idea if you enjoy it and like having the routine but equally on the other hand if you don't enjoy it, it's a much better idea to do it a bit more freestyle. I'm the sort of person who likes lists and routines which is why I have two (the Monday weekend post and the Wednesday links post) but if at any point it stopped being fun, it'd give it up in a flash! :-) xx
