I'm NOT in a blogging slump!
I'm inspired. When it comes to reading and blogging, it's been a LOOOONG time since I could really say that. Last year I went through a terrible reading slump... which obviously led to a terrible blogging slump. Those slumps really had me feeling down because reading and blogging are my hobbies. Like, my only real hobbies (unless you count buying lipstick a hobby???). So if I'm not reading and I'm not blogging, what am I doing?? That's how I feel.
Somewhere between then and now I've hit this really nice place where I WANT to read and I WANT to blog. I've been coming up with new blogging ideas (which YIKES, hasn't happened in a long time). I want to do other things... things that have more personality and FUN in them. And it comes at a good time because-- BEA (Book Expo America) is this week!! Which means SO many books and blogger interaction. Which means even more inspiration (hopefully) and books to read and feature on here (not that I really neeeed more books haha).
I want to keep pushing myself to stand out. To put out content that is ME and no one else. Which.... guys, it's really hard. You people are SO creative and awesome, and it's hard to stand out in this really cool bookish world we have here on the internets. But it's not just about standing out... it's about being me. Showing you guys who I really am and how fun books can be. I don't know allllll the details on how I am going to do this (because it's definitely a work-in-progress), but after 4 years of blogging, I'm still feeling inspired to come up with new stuff... and that can only be a good thing!
So what does all this mean?? I'm not 100% sure--- but I know it means more fashion stuff, more books w/ fashion :), more off-the-wall lists like this one, just more of everything FUN!
So what about you?? Do you ever find yourself going through ups and downs when it comes to blogging? How do you show your personalities in your blogs?
