I love writing in a new journal. The first few words written in a blank page are like a fresh start, a new beginning. So it is ‘Notes from Joana’.
I’m not new in the blogosphere world. Although I’ve been absent for enough time to feel like I’m new around here, I’m not and this is just a new beginning. Let me tell you my (blogging) story – promise I will be quick.
If you have a blog, I’m pretty sure you’ve been through the blogger’s rut phase at least once which equals to having no inspiration to come up with ideas for new blogposts.
I’ve been through quite a few of those phases but the worst was back in may. I was feeling unmotivated, bored and felt like my blog design and content were not how I wanted them to be. For a perfectionist like me that was even worse. I was comparing myself and my blog to others more successful and thinking I should do what everyone else was doing. And not just blogging wise but life in general.
Plus, I also felt and still feel like blogging should be something you do because you find pleasure in it and I wasn’t feeling that anymore so I decided not to push it and took a blog hiatus.
A few months went by and it was only after summer that I started thinking about getting back to blogging.
But I still wasn’t ready and I let things get in the way. A couple of weeks ago I finally decided it was time to come back and started planning a few blogposts which left me feeling really excited and made me realize how I missed blogging! It was time to come back!
Now, I’m ready for a new beginning.
I will try not to compare myself and my blog to others because everyone and every blog is unique in their own way. I want a space where I can be and stay true to myself, to share my interests and my experiences with others. I want my blog to be a space where I can talk about beauty, fashion, cooking, decor, traveling and everything that I like. It’s my little space on the internet and I hope you follow me through this new journey.
