Changing My Blogger Story - Time To Commit.

Unless you follow me over on bloglovin, you may have noticed that some of my posts have gone. 

I've recently been giving a lot of thought to where I want to take my writing and how my blog fits in and the like. I first started blogging in October 2012, but that blog no longer exists. Neither do the posts from back then. I didn't take as much care as I should have with the security and basically ended up losing the entire google account it was connected to. Lesson learned. 

I started again in March 2013, a year ago now, since then I have experimented a heck of a lot to find my writing style, the type of content I want to produce and various other factors that go into creating this blog. While this has been fun, at some point the experimenting needs to stop or at least, be allot less frequent and defiantly more toned down. 

I think I've reached a point in my life where I want stability in many areas and this includes my writing. There will always be a part of me that likes to live by the wind, but in reality, that kind of life is irresponsible and doesn't hold very many long term benefits. 

I'm a free spirit, but I strongly believe that being a free spirit means you're free enough to go wherever the wind carries you, but just as free not to if you so choose. My reasons for starting blogging was very simple, I suffered from depression and my brother suggested I do something with my writing, the thing I've loved since I was a kid to help me cope with it. 

Being the kind of person I am, I decided if I was going to write then I wanted to do it to help other people and while that is a noble cause, I just don't feel the same way about my writing as I once did. There was a part of me that felt guilty for wanting to write for the fun of it, so I kind of put pressure on myself to use my writing for some higher purpose and honestly, that decision has been a burden from day one. Some people are designed to help people through their writing in a self-help manner, I'm just not one of them and that's fine. 

I've come to realise it's okay to write just because I love writing and if I truly want to help people there are plenty of other ways to do it that may be more suited to me as a person then self-help, so yes this does mean changes to the structure of this blog but I do honestly feel like the changes I am making will make me happy and therefore more attentive and committed to this blog.

I will outline these in just a moment, but before I do I just want to say thank you to my readers that have stuck with me all the changes over the last few years. It means so much and I hope I can write posts that inspire you in the future, I am still very passionate about inspiring people to reach their potential, I'm just taking a different approach to this. I hope you understand. 

As well as these two projects I also aim to post allot more creativity in general, I want to get my poetry, short stories and songs up on my blog, some intended to entertain other intended to inspire, either way, I hope my creations will bring a smile to your face. 

Finally, I am a book and film fanatic so I want to have a section on my blog dedicated to this in time. 

Additionally, I intend to be a lot more interactive with my readers and also post videos via YouTube to compliment some of my blog posts.  If you have any questions, or post requests, feel free to get in touch via any of the social media available. I do really care about my readers, so I want to post content that you actually want to see. 
Final Thought.

I am not predictable by any stretch of the imagination, but that doesn't mean I can't still be committed to my blog, writing and readers. Here's to the next chapter of we're only just getting started! 

Love Hayley
