On Content


Alright Monday. We've got a new look, now let's settle in with something simple.

I've been blogging in this space for roughly two and a half years. I've figured some things out in this time. Okay, basically, I want to talk about content, and ways to go about it. I don't have anything super detailed, but I have a few tips that I think could work for quite a few people. These don't even necessarily need to be applied to blogging. These tips could work for any kind of creative work. They're really simple, but maybe they'll act as reminders:

It's okay to keep it simple. Not everything in life is intricate. It's also okay to go big.

Only you can determine what works for you. Tip posts (like this) are helpful, but not demanding.

Breathe. Take your time. Take a break if you need to.

Continue to grow.

(but most of all...)

Make sure you love it. Don't do whatever for the sake of doing it. Love your outlet.

    This is the best tip in the whole world. Sometimes, you just need something easy and it's beautiful in all it's simplicity. Not everything needs to be a masterpiece. I'm kinda glad I stopped by here, because lately I've been freaking out trying to make each project just as good or better than the next. I think for once I'm just gonna shoot my outfit in front a plain old brick wall. Thanks for the advice.

    1. I'm so glad you get it! I go through the same cycle, but it's good to remember that simplicity works as well. And I can attest to the brick wall solution; it's a favorite spot of mine! Thanks so much for the comment Liz!

  4. Simple is definitely sometimes better. Taking your time is important, I have ended up with some rubbish posts because I felt under pressure to but something up.

    I love your blog, you have a new follower

  8. Such a nice post! I'm (already) bored of the 'you need to be doing this for your blog' tips, and 'read about the huge mistakes you're making' pins - it's nice of you to validate that feeling I've been having that we should just regard our blogs as creative outlets. No factory formula! It can be as simple or 'big' as you want it to be: like you say!
    Thankyou!

    1. Exactly! There's a positive way to go about it, but your creative outlet is your own, and should always be treated as such! Thanks so much Flora!

    1. I agree! You should always want to improve yourself, but you shouldn't only focus on that. It could lead to stress and/or burning out where your outlet is concerned. Thanks for your comment Selene!
