WHY I AM POSTING LESS
For those of you who have been JHM readers from the start or who came daily to read my blog then you may have observed that I’ve been POSTING little recently and haven’t been doing my regular daily post. I’ve tried to keep up but have dropped up these past two weeks and have had a couple of days without posts. As culpable as I felt, it wasn’t the good time to post and I’d rather make content that I’m proud of than post something I don’t like it. Anyway, what I’m really trying to say is that I’ve been a really busy these days and just didn’t have time to go on with my daily posting. I’ve been working more hours, hanging with family from Australia and just needed some time to myself.I have so many new good ideas for JHM at the moment, I’m all the time writting down,making mind maps and brain storming, sketching out post ideas and having lists without end, it’s just finding the time to sit down and spend hours without something taking over. To keep you all noted, here’s whats been keeping me busy these days and why I think having a few days of rest isn’t always a bad idea.
When I first started up JHM back at Christmas, I was really happy about posting daily and wanted to make an online space where there was new information for my readers every day. At the time, this was all perfectly good, I was back home from uni, I didn’t have a part time job and could just spend my days shooting photos, editing and making new posts, for you. Once back at uni, I continued to post every day and have done it except these past few weeks even though it hasn’t been easy at all. With 8 deadlines and tens of thousands word essays, keeping a blog daily, was a mission but I was persisten and wanted to keep it up to date, so I did. When back home in April, I had a month of giving JHM my full time, I didn’t work and spend my days shooting photos, planning, prepering, posting, promoting and changed my blog myself – my life rotated around JHM and I had time to do percisely what I wanted to do with it. The time did come when I had to find a job and I handeled to grab myself a part time retail job which started off as just Saturdays but slowly I did more hours and began working 3 days a week. Still, making daily content was succesful.
With my job becoming more harder and coming back when the sun had gone meant I couldn’t take blog photos and even though I kept it up, I began to see as my posts weren’t as good as they were and my photos weren’t looking so bright anymore, this was the point wer I saw that it was time to take a break and take a couple of days of not doing anything.With no full days available to be on my blog, it was virtually impossible to keep up with daily posts unless I wrote posts and took photos at 2 in the morning which for me, being an old lady, wasn’t possible as I was tucked up in bed at 11 with a cup of tea! I still continued to post every other day, or at least 5 times a week, but I felt guilty.On these days off, I was able to relax and instead of putting a post, I could take my time think and create new, fresh posts for you all.
After this mini vacation of posting every day, I’ve been able to clean my mind with new informations and ideas, giving myself time to plan and shoot for JHM. With many new ideas coming for JHM, I will be back to making daily posts and giving you latest posts for beauty loves and skincare obsessions every day like I did before.
