Leaving the blog

So I decided today that I don’t want to blog anymore, I don’t want to continue posting my life on social media a network where people really don’t give two hoots. 

My blog was one of the few things that brought me joy and happiness but now it doesn’t even do that and I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough of feeling like crap and worthless all the time and I can’t cope with it anymore. Even my blog brings me stress now and that wasn’t what I was in it for. I have seen people who have been blogging less time than me and supercede me with their views and following, like props to them it doesn’t fuss me at all because I would never rain on someone’s happiness I’ve had that so much and it’s not my style but at the same time it makes me realise I’m going to get nowhere with this and might as well accept it for what it is. The best part is I know that no one will be sad over this, I don’t have that network around me that other bloggers do or even that close-knit support that’s others have reflected by their comments, views and likes. The community is so over saturated that I am just an ant on a mountain. 

If I don’t feel something 100% I don’t do it anymore and this has become one of those things. 

I’m going to release a few final posts because I’ve got some companies sending me products and I have a couple of items to view so as it was previously agreed I will honour this as I really appreciate what the companies did for me. 

The only solice I have in this situation is that I will be saving so much money not having to buy stuff to review anymore. 

Thank you again for all the support you have given me throughout the past 18 or so months, you guys really kept me going and gave me a reason to blog through all the sickness and off days I’ve had especially this year. 

Love and (high)light✌

  1. I’ve only just seen this and I’m gutted – grinding is hard I totally get it, my site will be 2 years old next month and in no way is it hugely popular! Nor do I ever expect it to be – but it does bring me some joy.

    You have to do what’s best for you, what your heart feels, your gut says.

    But know this now, you’ve written some stonkingly good reviews doll!

    Here to chat whenever you need to!

    1. Happy 2nd birthday!! I am still in love with your page, thank you for the kind words and support. I’m looking to relaunch now and this time with less pressure on myself, just going with the flow xx


  2. Oh no! Not everyone has fantastic numbers and some blogs take years to grow. If you’re just looking for a creative release then you should keep at it. I think the pressure will be slightly higher if you are looking to make money as there are so many beauty blogs out there so you have to work super hard at it everyday and if you already have other commitments it is tough. I’m here if you ever want to chat. X

  3. I know exactly how you feel. I put so much time and effort into my blog, yet I barely have an audience, or get anything in return for posting! But- If doing makeup and trying out new products is one of your hobbies and passions, then please continue to blog! Best wishes, xx
