Sunset over Wat Chiang Mun, Chiang Mai
Travelling is amazing. I’ve seen and done so many things I would never do in a million years. But I’m not going to write about it as much anymore.
As I mentioned in this post here I’m going to change things up here on Alright Blondie. When I first started blogging in 2014 I used to write silly posts like 18 signs you’re getting older, 9 questions all 20 something girls dread and general posts on things I’d liked that week (films, make up, etc, etc). I carried on writing about these things when I got to Australia, but after a few months I decided to write about travel exclusively.
And in all honestly I’m a bit bored of it.
Like I said, travelling has been great but I just don’t feel like travel blogging is a direction I want to be heading in anymore. I like writing about daft things that make people laugh and give them something to smile about.
I want to write about things that I would want to read about. Long term relationships, good movie recommendations, food appreciation….You know what I mean?
That’s not to say I’m going to stop writing about my travels altogether. I’m still having fun and I still want to share my pictures and thoughts on places (and it’s a good way for my family to stay in the loop). I’m doing it on the cheap as well so if I can help someone who doesn’t have a lot of cash have a great holiday then that’s awesome.
Basically I’m just going to find a bit of balance to keep the creative juices flowing.
Over Christmas I had no interest in blogging really. I didn’t want to write about what I’d been up to and had no ideas for future posts. That’s when I decided I want to go back to the original format for Alright Blondie – travel, films, boyfriends, spending money…A bit of everything.
Maybe I’m just a crappy writer/blogger and that’s why I started to struggle with writing about my travels but I don’t care. I enjoy rambling on and the fact that a few people read what I have to say. I’m just going to keep cracking on and see how it goes. Hopefully you guys will stick around 🙂
Hope everyone had a great New Year and that work isn’t as horrendous as you think it’s going to be!
