There’s no doubt that my blog has taken more of a back seat since finding out that I was pregnant and that’s the only excuse I really can give. Growing a tiny human is an emotional rollercoaster ride and working full time on top of that really does make life really busy. I have had low moments where I have been feel disappointed in my self and my lack of social media presence from time to time but I’ve got to cut myself some slack from time to time.
I’ve always come back to blogging no matter the situation as I really do find it an amazing place for me to be creative but I also need to constantly remind myself that it is just a hobby. When I don’t post for a while I do kind of feel lost, especially if I become AWOL from Instagram as I love sharing glimpses of my life through photos so take that away and there a little emptiness left behind.
So what does the future hold?
The thought of being on Maternity leave has given me a push in my blogging direction. I am going to be realistic here I know that I am not going to always have the time to blog with a baby but my blog is going to be something that can stay mine as I will be having a year of work so it’s a nice thought to know that I will have some sort of relief and my own little bubble in which I can focus on.
I really want to make The Wife Edit more appealing and grow my audience. I’ve recently switched from Blogger to WordPress to give myself more freedom and it also gave me the chance to revamp to something I can really be proud of. Branding feels really important as I want to have my own personal identity and for all my amazing followers to stick around to come with me on my next chapter in my life “Motherhood”. Not only do I want to share with you all the ups I also want to be honest about being a Mum as we all know life isn’t always peachy and that’s ok.
Another platform I want to grow with is Instagram even if we do share a love/hate relationship I still absolutely adore the platform and love how easy it is to engage with fellow bloggers. Over the last few months I’ve had some amazing conversations with others and it really can create strong connections.
Sometimes stepping away actually does wonders for the mind. I want to embrace this year of maternity to spend with my little girl and to also grow as an individual alongside my blog. I aiming to push out of my comfort zone and see where I can go and what I can achieve. However I am going to stop feeling guilty got not posting all the time as I know I am only human and sometimes life does intact need to take over and I need to accept that’s ok from time to time.
