Why I Took A Break From Blogging


So if you follow me on Instagram, you will have come to know and realise that I decided to go MIA on my Instagram and my blog. Although I don't really owe anyone an explanation for my absence because at the end of the day, Instagram is just Instagram and my blog is just something I really enjoy doing, I feel like I should just get it out there.

But recently, the main reason for my absence was simply because I was spending too much time on Social Media and not spending enough time with myself and I just became very unhappy. I kept feeling put off with my Instagram photos, and everything about my blog just made me very agitated. I became so obsessed with trying to fix everything up, that I would just make myself feel worse than I was. And of course, life came in the way and things got too hectic and that's when I thought you know what "Screw Instagram, screw the blog, I need a break." And honestly it was the best decision that I'd made.

I feel like it's so important to just take a step back from life and just take a deep breath. We become so engrossed into daily lives, so consumed by the devil that is the Internet, that we forget to just sit back, relax and enjoy our own company. It's so important to just switch off from everything and have some quality time with your family and friends but more importantly quality time with yourself. We forget that we matter, that we're just as important as everyone else.

My time away has done me some good because now I'm back and feeling so much better about Blogging and everything else. Some of you may have noticed, some of you may have not, but I finally took the dive and got myself my own domain. Goodbye blogspot.co.uk and hello my own .co.uk. Not that I have anything against the whole blogspot subdomain link, but for me having that there was sort of one of the many reasons that was just demotivating me from blogging. Yes it's weird I know.

I also changed around my logo because my previous one was bugging the absolute life out of me and of course I've made some teeny tiny changes to the layout of my blog. Let me know your thoughts on this new blog revamp of mine. I would love to hear your thoughts and I am totally up for suggestions.

So what's next for The Modest Lifestyle?
To be honest, I don't know where this blog is going to take me. I'm just going with the flow, posting whenever I can. I'm not one of those bloggers that has a blog schedule because when I do that, give myself a schedule, I feel like then blogging just becomes a burden and I have to force myself to post something. I want to be able to write quality posts even if that may be that I post 1 time in a week.

Honestly, for me it's not about the amount of followers or likes on my posts, for me it's all about the love and support. 1 loyal supportive follower is better than 1000 followers who just follow for the sake of following. So to those of you that have started my journey into blogging with me and have supported me, thank you so much for your love and support, it truly means the world to me and I hope you will stay with me throughout.

So I guess I will see you all on my next post!

The Modest Lifestyle,
