I feel like I have hit a brick wall in my blogging. For a few weeks now I really have put my head down and have been concentrating on getting my blog page in a better position!
I have been researching like hell ! getting inspiration from other bloggers and social media! I’m not going to lie, this has been stressing me out ! being so busy with work, seeing friends/family, going to the gym then fitting this in has been tough however I do enjoy it ! I have had so much fun going through everyones pages and reading all the different blogs and bios because lets face it they are amazing !! I’m just struggling with the fact that I have to try and compete with all these amazing bloggers!
So atm I am still using WordPress.com (as you can tell by my name) I am trying to figure out what I want to upgrade to ? do I want to stay with WordPress.com and pay a monthly upgrade fee? or do I go self hosted and go to WordPress.org and do it all myself? Decisions like this I really am having difficulty making and just don’t know what the best option is ? there is so many different opinions on different sites!
Other bloggers themes, their content and their social media pages really are some competition for me! Although they have given me so much inspiration and it really has given me that push to get my act together. I just have no idea where to even start ?! I don’t have a clue how to better myself and could really do with someone to sit with me for a while and just go through everything with me and give me some advice and really help me get set up. I want to get to the point where I have tweets and posts scheduled ! because right now I do all that myself and and I’m just so un organised ! and in the blogging world that is the biggest mistake to make right?
Please please please any bloggers out there that can just give me some advice on how they started and how they got through the giving up stage ?
I dont want to stop blogging because I really do enjoy it, its my get away, my sanctuary, something I call my own and something that I am actually quite proud of! I just need that lift to get me going again and taking my blog that extra mile!

Maybe a short time away from blogging, posting and research will benefit me ? give me some head space and then come back with a fresh mindset !
Only time will tell right ?
