Finding a niche

After my first post, some experimental photography(soon to come), and hours of playing around with this site I feel I’m starting to get the hang of it. My guess is that the experience and assumptions I had about how to create and build a blog platform would be similar to everyone else, however I see now I was focusing on the wrong thing. Now don’t get me wrong, I always knew having good content was kind of the main point of having a blog but i’m now starting to see that an amazing theme or a perfectly customised and coloured presentation isn’t as important as finding the community. 

After comments left on other posts I like and following blogs that catch my attention i’ve realised the one thing that feels like progress on this blog is response, whether it be my current 1 follower or a like or view on a post, that is what makes writing here all the more worth it. Finding a community of people who are in the same boat as me or similar is such an important part of writing a blog and even just seeing that people from other parts of the word have viewed my blog makes me excited for the future of this space. 

It is indeed early days but i’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t need to decide on one topic to write about and can simply use this as an outlet of opinions or feelings. While there will indeed be reviews on products and stories of events i’ve experienced, there will also be this, the usual ramblings and feelings I can’t help but plaster all over the internet.

Ringing in the New Year.

Welcome to 2017, as you’ll see my achievements of 2016 were.. well non existent. Atlas I proved one thing, my lack of confidence to actually keep these posts up. I think we can all agree that 2016 in general was a disaster and i’ll therefore blame that as the reason why I failed to make one single improvement to this tiny space of the internet I can call my own. 

A new years resolution i’m deciding to create 18 days late is to post on here at least once a month, which seems pathetic really but lets set the standard low and build ourselves up slowly. Whether those posts be complete ramblings such as this one and the previous, or opinions I have on products, events, or general happenings. We shall see.

While I am disappointed in the year just gone, I can’t ignore all the positives that have come from it. Chapters in life making progress and chapters well past their use by date finally closing mean that the mind set of wouldn’t that be cool to experience” has now drastically changed to now’s your chance you half-ass”. In other words I have set the standard on myself that if I don’t take life by the horns, i’ll watch another year melt into the folder of my brain I like to label CONFUSED(currently the only folder i’ve got going).

So here’s to 2017. The year of achieving goals and stepping out of the first layer of comfort zone, into the second layer of comfort. Which does still mean an anonymous me, as well as a plain blog due to my lack of computer skills. So in light of being sick of the label confused, lets start off by plastering a new label all over myself , a more enlightening and motivating name. Let’s call 2017 the year of Finding ourselves (hold the gag).
