I’m Back (for Real)


It’s real. I’m going to blog again. My life has gotten crazy and my blog has definitely taken a back seat to all of my other commitments. However, this is something that I truly love doing so I’ve done my research, got Katie as my accountability buddy and from this point forward there will be a blog post every week until the end of 2016.

A lot has changed since I’ve been here last, I have a million jobs (that I love!!) I’ve been to DC (not really new, it’s too close to be new at this point), a few haircuts, and I turned 22. I am most excited about the later, it my Taylor Swift year and so far it’s been off to a good start especially since my haircut makes me feel like her.

By this point, if you are a reader, you’ve seen my anxiety post, so that’s new too. I have also gotten a new planner which I’ve created to be a blog binder as well. I cannot wait for the new year for a lot of reason, but a big one is all of the inserts that I can buy on Etsy, because IT’S A FILOFAX!! I found an affordable one at Michael’s and with the 40% off coupon, I couldn’t say no. Expect a post on that in the near future.

I’ve been doing a lot of research on how to be a better blogger. I think I’ve done more research on blogging this year than actual blogging. I hit a rut, acknowledged a multitude of times, and now I plan on really doing something about it. I have an accountability buddy, so really, I have no excuse from this point forward.

How do you stay motivated as a blogger? Any tips or tricks I should take into account? Let me know!!

    Hey Mary! It’s good to have you back!

    I think one thing that helps me with staying motivated as a blogger is doing monthly challenges that I really enjoy. Especially when I help create them, I find that I want to be involved. I’m actually going to try one now that I didn’t create and see how that goes. It feels weird not having anything to write about since I was doing the challenges for so long.

    I think an important thing is to find something you’re passionate about and write about that. If you’re passionate about traveling, write about your adventures (I know you have), if you’re passionate about books, write about those. If you’re passionate about helping people, write articles that help people. I know you can do it!
