This year marks 10 years of blogging!
Up until recently, nothing exciting has happened in my life worth writing about. So thanks to the people who have been reading on my various blogging platforms through thick and thin.
I have had a bittersweet relationship with writing online. I started blogging anonymously on tumblr about weight loss. It ended up being a picture blog about skinny models and whinging why I never looked like them (the answer is junk food and no exercise), it was then I fell into the more health and fitness side of things. I began lite and easy and lost around 12 kilos and started going to the gym. I made some friends with likeminded people and met them in real life. I then blogged about my mental health to show other people that nothing is to be ashamed of. It is normal to not be ok. It was with this blog that I found my purpose and I created this blog, which I have posted to and deleted a million times. The amount of friends that messaged me telling me they were surprised of my struggles and that they suffer themselves. I have given my advice to a few friends and are greatful that they reached out to me. Still, my door is always open!
To me, writing is a way to get everything off my chest. I feel better when I write my stories down, it is therapy. I have tried a diary but the feeling is not the same. This has never been about how many followers I have or how many clicks I receive but I must admit, I like the feeling of connecting to others if they are feeling the same.
The purpose of this post is to admit that I’m not sure where this blog is going. I am such a post-and-delete type of girl. Why would I post if I know I will want to delete it later on? What is the point of posting if I don’t want it on the web forever?
The internet is such a wonderful and shit place. So much information here for us to access, learn and play with. However all I see on Facebook and blogs are people being negative and blasting them. Besides one time I was called fat (mind you I was 15 kg lighter and skinny lol) there has been no negative comments thank god, however if they came, I couldn’t deal with it. I’m too sensitive. Lol. Just look at Em Russiano, she had a miscarriage and openly talked about it. People are accusing her of “milking it”. This is DISGUSTING. My thoughts go out to Em and her partner.
I also don’t want to be a Mummy blogger in the sense of telling my sons day by day acheievements. If my son is anything like my husband, he wouldn’t want the world to know what he is doing. I post pics of Hunter because he is the cutest but I don’t want to post every single of his life details. He is my life now and other than him, I’m not sure how I can continue at the moment.
I’m not saying that this is the end of my blogging road. Strangers seem to comment more than people I know and I’m not sure I like the idea of that.
Bye for now 🙂
*cute pics will still be posted on Insta cause cute 😍👶🏼😂
