I don’t quite know what I’ve been doing for the last week. I feel like I’ve been really busy also don’t seem to have done very much. I only posted once this week and it turned out to be somewhat prescient. I wrote about figuring out the kind of things I enjoy writing, but when it came to writing the post I had planned for Saturday I just wasn’t feeling it. I intended to write about how much my spending habits have changed over the last year but no matter how I span it, it sounded like bragging. Rather publishing it and feeling uncomfortable or throwing something else together quickly and not feeling like it was good enough, I decided not to publish anything. That’s a change I’ve been trying to make for a while; I put too much pressure on myself to stick to a schedule and stress myself out trying to keep to it even when I don’t have anything to say. I feel like this is a shift in the right direction.
I absolutely loved this post by Casey about how much Iceland means to her. It’s a really emotional and moving read and is something I can really relate to when I think about New Zealand. However, if there’s one thing this post will do is convince you that you need to go to Iceland.
I love Alice’s style and her blog is brilliant and this post is no exception. She talks about some of the problems in the blogging industry and I can relate to so much of it. Blogging isn’t respected outside of the industry but is equally intimidating for those trying to enter. Her post is a breath of fresh air and well worth a read.
Rachel’s post about reigniting her passion for photography is well worth a read whether you’re into photography or not, and is a really lovely post about rediscovering the things you loved to do as a child. All of her posts are well written and the photography is always gorgeous and unique to her style, so if you haven’t already, she’s definitely one to check out.
I am obsessed with Sandra’s blog at the moment, both for food and travel. Her post about 13 things to expect when you go to Cuba has cemented my desire to visit Cuba sometime soon. It sounds fascinating and like a truly unique island culture, and the food looks incredible.
Laila’s writing is always great, but in this post, she really excels. She writes about Autumn with great whimsy and really captures the feeling of this time of year. This little summary can’t do it justice, so just go and read it.
