Post Grad Girl: Why I haven't been blogging

Hello! Long time, no chat. As you may have noticed if you frequent Sew Cute Style often I haven't been posting new posts for quite some time. Why? Because life happened. Adjusting to post-grad life is kind of crazy. I went from having breaks in my schedule to photograph outfits, write posts, and create new ideas to working full-time, traveling heavily, and adjusting to life after college. You never realize how much time you have in school until you graduate and work for a living! I always thought oh my gosh I have no time to get anything done, now I feel like I have time to get work done, but not necessarily other things I used to enjoy in my life like my blog. 

BUT life is all about making time for what you love. And for me I still love blogging, but I felt like I was posting what people wanted me to post vs. what I am passionate about. So, from now on I'm going to be making posts I enjoy on my schedule. Now, my blog is just something fun I can turn to to be creative. I'm not making a career out of blogging. I'm not trying to make money off of my blog. I simply want to help my friends, family, and readers. Whether that be my Dose of Disney posts sharing my love of Disney, or sharing life post college with my college age audience (gotta shed light on what is to come!). 

The same could be said for my Instagram. People were teasing me or complaining about how often I posted Disney photos or outfits. Well, hate to break it to ya but I freaking love Disney. And that isn't going to change because you tease me about posting about Disney. I've found some amazing people and accounts in the Disney community just by looking in and not creating a full page dedicated to Disney. 

So, I'm taking a similar approach to my Instagram account as my blog. I'm going to post pictures I enjoy and find visually appealing. Whether that be fashion, lifestyle, travel, my friends & family, or Disney. Oddly enough I watched an episode of Black Mirrors and it had the topic of how people are so obsessed with likes (referencing Instagram heavily). It got me thinking, I should just post what I want. If the pictures gets less then a 100 likes, oh well! I enjoy it so I wanna post it. 

Woah woah woah, I'm not trying to vent here. But, I wanted to share a new direction I'm taking my blog and social media platforms, and I encourage you to do the same! Post what you want to post. Don't care about the likes, care about that that picture or tweet makes you happy. That's what matters, not what other people think! 

At the end of the day I want to look back on my blog and Instagram and enjoy all of my posts. And that is exactly what I have been doing recently. So, get excited for more posts in the future from Sew Cute Style! I know I've said that before, but I'm going to work on creating new content that I believe in and that I'm passionate about, that is what matters at the end of the day.
