I started this blog very casually on 19th October 2012. It has been almost 2 years since that date, I'm still casual about it. But not any more ! I have spent a lot of time in social networks in spite of knowing it did not give me back anything worthy of that time. Still in this process I have learnt how to make an interesting piece of writing or how to chose the worth-instagram picture and taking time to edit and create hash tags so that it has larger viewers. Basically I have gained followers in a little time . This made me think : What have I done to my blog?!! Only 27 posts in 2 years .... damn!!
I was not consistent , I was lazy, may be I wanted success very easily and very fast, when it did not happen, slowly I started to lose interest. But were the posts worth reading??
- lack of thought on the content
- pics were not edited properly
- again laziness shows on the writing
- less care on everything!!!
This is not acceptable, yes I know now. I want start afresh (but previous posts wont be deleted). I gave my Blog a makeover : from Me all over the blog template to beautiful pink flowers which reflects my inner calmness and happiness I have gained/found in these years. Before I used to think that people will like it if it's glossy, over the top, made up. I ended up making this blog look very superficial and plastic (remember "Mean Girls"). But that was not really what I am .
Now I am a person who is mostly in peace with herself. I want this new me to reflect in my blog.
It's resolution time!
- I will be regular (let it be 4 posts a month?)
- care, planning, good editing will be there too
- I will be myself - not over the top, not a makeup guru, but the girl next door who is friendly, sweet, crazy at times, feminine all the time, philosophical sometimes ..........
