OH SHIT I actually did it. Last time I attempted to post every day for a month, way back in Blogtober, I fell short by a few days. This time I actually did it! I considered giving up around Day 22, but I managed to push through. When this goes up I’ll be boarding a flight to Japan with my brother and I’m extremely excited.
All-in August has been a weird process, with definite good and bad elements to it. I grew restless and dissatisfied with my blog, not liking the content I was putting out because of how rushed it was. This dissipated towards the end of the month as I began writing more about what I actually enjoy writing these days: travel and lifestyle posts. I love beauty and books, but I haven’t had time to read much lately and I’ve been finding makeup and skincare boring of late, both to read and to write.
I’ve been thinking about changing the focus of this blog for a while now, turning it into a lifestyle and travel blog with just a smattering of beauty and books when the mood takes me. It’s something that will take time, and I might be looking into a rebrand at the end of the year, but I’m looking forward to see how this trip to Japan will impact my blog. If I find that I can make interesting content from it that I enjoy writing and you enjoy reading then there may be a real shift in what I write about.
I have another Monday Medley post scheduled for Monday (duh), but I’m not sure when I’ll be posting next on here. I recommend keeping an eye on my instagram for previews of lots of Japan content!
