Sorry to start this week off on a sour note, but I just wanted to say that I’m in a bit of a creative rut. This blog and my daily vlogs are my primary creative outlets and I haven’t really been excited about either lately.
The desire to create content is there but the output hasn’t been great, so I guess I’m here to apologize for that. Even though this is just a diary of my life, I used to approach it much more creatively.
I used to take photos throughout the day to support the “story” of that day. Now video has replaced some of that, although I feel like I still get nervous to film in public so sometimes you only see me in my house talking about what I did which is not that exciting. I want to get back to taking pictures… and to get over my fear of filming in public.
I’ve heard popular bloggers say they get over their nerves by thinking “these people will never see me again, who cares if they think I’m crazy.” I’m going to try to take that approach and push out of my comfort zone. I want to do that because I like video editing. If I can’t do that then maybe I’ll just go back to blogging and taking pictures.
I also want to expand out of the selfie zone. I was looking at my Instagram feed the other day and was like WTF it’s all selfies, running shoes and Cecil. I want to take better pics for my Instagram (and in general). I finally bought one of those remotes so that I can take pictures without having to hold my phone. Hopefully that will take me out of the selfie zone because I hate seeing all my selfies in a row.
I also just generally need to get out more! I’m definitely in that spot with my full-time work from home schedule where I barely leave the house. I haven’t driven my car in over a week! Adam and I went out to lunch a couple times last week but he drove. Then I saw my mom on Saturday and she drove. Other than that I didn’t leave the house except to go running. I need to get out more!!!!
I guess I’m just writing this post to let you know that I plan to do better because I love my blog and want it to be better.
Okay, thanks for listening to this ramble!
