#13 Weekly Reflection – Keeping Up With Blogmas
This week’s weekly was quite an important video for me – it’s not a vlog in the usual sense, and that feels strange. Also, it’s Thursday. I’ve been so unbelievably ill the past couple of weeks that, not only did I miss out on a whole weekly vlog (and I filmed the update below in place of it), but I’ve fallen behind on all of my social media groups, blog posts and uploads. I just don’t have the energy for it, at the minute.
I keep saying I’m going to make a video or write a post on why this is, but I continually don’t have the energy. Lol, irony.
For now, I just wanted to remind everyone reading this that it’s okay to take a step back from your online life and concentrate on yourself. It’s okay if you don’t post on your blog for a couple of weeks, or if your Instagram engagement drops while you’re focusing on Christmas. At this time of year everybody is publishing so much Blogmas content that there’s a lot to compete with, so of course your engagement will be lower than normal. There’s too much for everyone to read! Just keep your chin up and create when you want to create. I’m going Zen on the world and not letting anything phase me, I can’t afford to at the minute. Christmas is by far the bustiest and most stressful time in my job, and I’ve just handed in a big-ass uni assignment. Time for me to chill a little bit, I reckon.
I can’t say how much you’ll be hearing from me over the next month or two, whilst Christmas and New Years’ comes along and then I move into the flat, but I’m planning to come back with a bang-wollop in February. One thing I can guarantee is my weekly vlogs, although they might come a tad late. Also, some more irony in that my weekly vlogs are by far my least popular uploads. That’s okay, they’re the most important to me.
So, without further adieu, here’s my latest weekly update – featuring me being grumpy, fangirling over some new Illamasqua products & wishing I could be a daily vlogger.
Merry Christmas, Happy Blogmas, and remember that December is a month for fairy lights and carol singers and family, not stress and overworking!
Until next time,
