Help Me Improve My Blog

How I feel about my blog is affected by how I feel about my life and what things are going on in my life. Thus my relationship with my blog can be kind of rocky from time to time. I go through stages where I literally tell everyone who will listen "I am done, I am quitting!" Then the next week I am filled with ideas, I am planning content for the next month and I am talking about how proud I am of my content. You're probably either reading this like "She crazy!" or nodding your head in agreement with everything I have just said. I have always put this down to my perfectionist nature if I can't focus on my content and give it my full attention or it doesn't turn out as perfectly as I thought it would, I hate it, not just dislike it, I despise it. So when my mind isn't into writing content and I am disconnected it is hard for me to find pride in what I am putting out there. 

So for a little while now I have been disconnected to my writing, I will admit wholeheartedly that there are some posts I have written over the past few months where I have been passionate and connected and in love with my content, like this one and this one, oh and this one. However, for the most part, I haven't been feeling the sense of joy I usually feel everytime I write a post, take photography or publish my blog posts and it is down to my disconnection with my content. I wondered if maybe my disconnection was proof I should step back and leave the blogging world behind, I wondered if maybe I just wasn't cut out for blogging and I debated whether anyone would even notice if I stopped publishing posts, but then I noticed, I would. Even if most of my blog posts lately aren't filled with passion and joy, I know that they usually are and without my blog, I wouldn't be able to be creative in a way that brings me so much happiness. I don't want my personal feelings and things going on in my personal life to affect how I feel about blogging anymore. 

Things haven't been easy these past few months, but I shouldn't take that out on something I love and hold so dearly. I feel terrible for abandoning my blog and letting my content slide because creating content that people interact with and that I love is what is most important to me when it comes to blogging. So, to my blog and to any readers who like to read here regularly, I want to apologise for allowing my content to go downhill and allowing myself to post even when I am not connecting with the post. From now on I want to feel inspired and passionate about my blog and I am not going to let anything stand in the way of that. 

I start back university, doing my masters, I am getting to attend the first teaching week of the university instead of having to take part in a jury and things are starting to look up and I want it to stay that way. My blog is something I have always been so passionate about and I never want to feel like that passion has fade ever again. I look up to so many bloggers and the way they approach their content and their blogs are inspiring me to find my love all over again.  So here's to a new era for heythererobyn.com. 

Oh, also if you would like to help me with this new era I have created a very short survey for readers to participate in and help me improve my content. You can click here to answer just 5 questions anonymously and leave any comments you wish.
