Blogmas 2017 Day 2: December Goals

Happy Saturday!!

I have slowly started to feel myself getting lazier and not in tune with where I would like to be.  For the last month of 2017, I decided to set three goals for myself.

Getting Organized

Happy Sunday!!!

Since graduating I’ve been feeling like something is missing.  Maybe it’s the structure of having to always be studying or working on a paper or project.  It kept me busy and helped me enjoy my down time a lot.  Now I don’t have that and basically go to work and then get home and chill.  Thursday morning I was going through my old pictures and when I got to the pictures I took during the Fall of 2015, I grew nostalgic.  I saw all the pretty pics I had taken for posts and missed keeping up Makeup & Flowers.

Getting Organized

I got up that day and started reading a very interesting post (Plan you Blog Content like a Boss by Laura Rebecca Jones) that changed my Thursday from a lazy day to a very productive day.  Keep reading to see how these two things shifted my week and views on my blog!!  Continue reading

Returning to Makeup & Flowers

Long time, no blogging!!!

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on Makeup & Flowers!! There are a couple of reasons why I have decided to come back but one major reason is that I’m about to graduate with my Bachelors Degree and as that time gets closer, I feel the pressure of finding a job and in the process I can start to feeling lonely, if that makes sense.  I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that doesn’t have a job lined up after graduation but at times it feels like that.  Blogging helps me feel a sense of belonging and also a sense of purpose since I’m doing something creative that I really like.

Returning

I decided to come up with a schedule in order to help me keep blogging longer than once or twice so here it is!!  Continue reading

Sit Back Sunday #11

Happy Sunday!!

I am feeling very motivated this Sunday morning and one of the reasons is because I watched a few of Kalyn Nicholson‘s videos, which motivate me a lot!!  She is actually one of the reasons why I became obsessed with YouTube videos and why I started my blog!!  Before I let y’all in on my week, I have decided to change my blogging schedule just a tiny bit.  I know I had established a schedule already this past Monday, but I wasn’t really comfortable with it.  So now I will be blogging Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.  I have decided that I will use my Saturdays to take pictures and plan posts so that I don’t feel the stress of have to take pics on posting days.  I am hoping that by dedicating a day to planning, Makeup & Flowers will be even better!

Sit Back Sunday

So onto my week!!  If you follow me on Snapchat, you will know that I went to Shreveport and stayed at Sam’s Town. Continue reading

How to Deal With a Blogging Rut

Lately blogging has started to feel like a chore and when I woke up this morning I had something planned but I simply didn’t feel like taking the pictures or writing the blog out.

How to Deal with a Blogging Rut

This feeling started after Blogmas.  I took a very short break off of blogging and ever since then I blogging has felt like a chore.  While it has been feeling like a chore, I do start enjoying it again once I’m putting the post together.  The problem with this is that I don’t want to wake up every morning and feel like I have to blog because then it just won’t be fun anymore.

So while thinking about how much I didn’t want to blog today I started thinking about why I felt this way and what the difference is when I am feeling motivated and excited to blog versus now, that I am not so excited.

Keep reading to find out what to do when you are in a blogging rut. Enjoy!
