Losing Your Blogger Voice
It is a difficult one, isn't it? I've been blogging for over 6 years now and I am starting to wonder, when did I lose sight of what my blog was about?
It is so easily done, isn't it? When I first started out, the plan was to JUST talk about plus size fashion, hence "Big Fashionista" but, as invariably happens, I developed. I developed my blogging style and my tastes changed and over the years I used my blog to voice my opinions which I LOVE to do.
But somewhere along the way, I think I got lost, I forgot what it is I love about blogging and my blog started to become neglected. Like a garden I forgot to tend, it became overgrown and I think there is something dead in the corner. (ignore that part)
So what do I do? I LOVE blogging, it is a huge part of my life and my blog is my baby. (Slightly neglected, possibly full of shit and causes me sleepless nights)
I feel like I need some goddamn structure to my blog again. I need to FIND MY USP again. (Anyone playing blogger bingo, TAKE A SHOT NOW for use of USP) I need to bring back Nom or Vom, boring back Shutter Day and WRITE SHIT DOWN.
I will never write crap for the sake of it, I would rather have no content for a month than write some bullshit just for a couple of hits. There is not one thing on my blog that I am ashamed of writing, even the REALLY early stuff which is awful, serves to remind me of how far I have come over the years, and I hope that maybe six years from now I can look back and see that at this point where I lost my voice, this is where I found it again.
Wat do you think my USP (DRINK) is?
Do you think I need to find my 'voice' again?
If you are a Blogger, what did YOU do when you thought you lost your voice, or do to help bring back structure again?
Let me know.
