100 OF YOU

12 Aug 2015

100 thank yous to the 100(+ 6) of you who are now following me on Bloglovin'

I started this blog in my second year of University because I wanted my own platform to write on. As much as I enjoy writing academic essays (no genuinely, I do) I never really had anywhere to write more relaxed, chilled out pieces. I've always been a digital kind of gal and blogging seemed like the perfect way to express myself. I've struggled to fully throw myself into imogenscribbles in the past year and admittedly I'm still not 100% happy with it, but the blogging community has helped a lot. Any comment at all puts a smile on my face, because it reminds me that there are readers out there who have taken the time out of their days to read what I've written and to look at the photos that I've taken. I honestly thought I'd never get to 100 so this is a great day! I might even bake a cake to celebrate...

Defeating My Worst Enemy
I am my own worst enemy with regards to most aspects of my life, my blog included. Sometimes, as with all things we feel unconfident about, it's incredibly easy to take the avoidance route. Sometimes, I felt like I had no readers and no followers. I felt like no one cared and probably just thought my writing was boring. Sometimes I genuinely felt like I didn't even want anyone reading my content because I was embarrassed by it. Then I thought - hey, you know what? If you don't like it, don't read it. You can go on with your lives never having to read my blog again and good for you. Not everyone cares about where I went last weekend, or what I've been baking recently, and that's okay. It doesn't have to be liked by everybody, just like I myself don't have to be liked by everybody. Recently, I had a realisation; I knew I need to do one of two things - either close down the blog completely or examine it bit by bit, find the key areas that I wanted to improve upon and do something about it. Become proactive.

Being Proactive
As of this week, I have organised a blog plan so that I have more structure to imogenscribbles. There's a lot I want to change; but first, I'm going to start with my post organisation and scheduling, which is something I've wanted to rectify for a long time. I was surprised at the number of post ideas that filled my brain when I just sat down with a calendar and brainstormed. It is in my nature to be organised; if I'm not and if I lack structure, then I can easily lose my way. That's just me. Some people go with the flow all the time, and that's just them. This new plan has already helped me massively and I feel a lot more positive and content! Yay me.

So, you know. I just wanted to say thank you. You are all little stars, without whom this blog might have died a long time ago.

Lots of Love,
Imogen x
