Chatty Ellie

Why I stopped blogging…

If you’ve followed BasicEllie (and earlier agirlandadream) you probably noticed a difference… I stopped blogging for a month and only posted old posts that had been posted earlier on agirlandadream. Well, that wasn’t just to relax.

I began to feel like what I wrote didn’t matter to anyone. And why write something that no one cares about? So I wanted to take some time to focus on my YouTube channels and growing them. While I did grow my channels quite a lot I was pretty stressed about it and didn’t have my heart in it. I just did it to feel like I actually did something. Don’t get me wrong, I truly love making videos to YouTube! But while uploading 3 times a week on YouTube I couldn’t find the time to write good quality blog posts.

I’m currently in a phase where I have to figure out where I want to put my main focus. It is not easy at all since I love all of it but I have to do it. I want to keep making good content on the blog and I have a plan for the blog running until February (SO many exciting blog posts are coming up!) but I also really want to make YouTube videos. Some things are easier to write about and some things are easier to make videos about. Fx is bullet journaling much easier to explain in a video while my deep thoughts are easier to write about than to talk about.

The important thing is that I’m back at it again with the twice a week blog posts! If you haven’t noticed, I post on the blog every Monday and Friday at 10 AM British time.

Stay happy, stay beautiful
