Setting and unexpected precedent

I’m a sloppy perfectiont.

Is that even a thing? Surely that whole sentence is a massive contradiction?

Basically what I think I mean is, I find a new thing, a new style, a new creative vision, enjoy it but then my creativity for the thing just seems to go for a bit. I get frequent creative block and it’s so bloody annoying. The more I think about it, the worse it gets. 

I’ve been blogging for 4 years, long before being an “influencer” was a thing [no hate] people had blogs and spent time updating them getting excited over their content and people would read them but like everything with time and media, the way we want to digest information is getting quicker and quicker. We want it now, easy, assessable and instant - me included. It’s just the way we evolve. I think thats why I started to neglect my blog a bit too. The direction in the way blogging was going was to different platforms. But tell me, are we still bloggers without our blogs? I didn’t feel relevant on my blog anymore and thought the only way was IG. Theres some incredible IG creators, Justauniform for example - her content is some of the most creative I’ve seen on the app. I appreciate the time and the effort that must go into creating every single post she uploads, she is well and truly in a league of her own. 

But, starting out as a blogger and after not updating this space of mine, I started to really miss my blog. The trouble for me is there was only so many ways I could write about clothes after 4 years. I found snapping an outfit and uploading it to IG with a 30 word caption instead of a recycled blog post at one point more fulfilling and dare I say convenient? 

Now back to my original point. I felt like I needed to do a little bit of background rambling. After so long in the game you feel like you need to switch things up a bit. Theres a heck of a lot of bloggers/Influencers/and everything in-between and its somethings hard to stand out from the masses.  I felt like everything I was doing was a little but stale and it was time to mix things up a bit. I overhauled how I created and presented my content. I was enjoying creating again and I felt like I was breaking away from the norm, I was mixing it up and having fun. Posting and making what I wanted to not what I thought I had to in order to be liked and succeed. I was really enjoying creating again. 

But then this thing happens where I start comparing my content against each other, then I’d get frustrated and not think it’s “creative” enough and that I’ve lost it. I get creative block. I mostly bring it on myself, I get in my own head and it’s so daft, I’ve set myself and unexpected and unwanted precedent. I do it with what I’m wearing. I’ve made it known I love colour and I sometimes worry I’m not fun enough or my outfits boring - also daft. So now, it’s time to do away with this precedent and get out of my head.

Legit have no idea where that ramble came from or how to end it. 

Time to fuck off that precedent.
