For a while now, i have been agitated with my blog, what I blog about and just everything I post and do on here. I feel like every blogger goes through those times where they feel no motivation to post, or hate their theme and desperately need a change but they just don’t know how.
The truth is, I’ve always wanted to be an organic and unique blogger. I’ve always wanted my content to separate itself from everyone else’s in the industry, for the simple fact that it’s a reflection of my thoughts. ‘ItsBeccaJayne’ is called itsbeccajayne, because it’s me. It’s what I think about. It’s what I feel. It’s everything that I need to get out in the open, and people just so happen to stumble across my content and relate to it which is a humbling bonus.
However, itsbeccajayne shares many other aspects of myself which I also want to express on this blog. I like make-up. I like the excitement of buying new products and wanting to tell the world over what beauty ‘must haves’ I’m lusting over. But that doesn’t necessarily make me a beauty blogger. I love fashion, and always have. I love experimenting with styles suited to each season, and telling the world about my favourite outfit of the day. But that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m a fashion blogger either.
The thing with blogging is that a lot of people feel like they have to fit into ‘one’ blogger category, and for a while, I thought I did too. I was worried that my readers would grow to dislike my blog if I blogged about other stuff I loved, or if diversity isn’t what they wanted. I didn’t want to blog about beauty or fashion, because I felt like I would have to separate myself from a ‘lifestyle blog’ to a beauty or fashion blog.
In reality, I am either all of those, or none of those. The fact of the matter is that it doesn’t really matter. I am me. And that’s what itsbeccajayne is. It’s everything I love, and everything I feel, congregated into one place on the internet. From make-up, to fashion, to mental health, to just general posts about life or whatever goes on in that head of mine. I don’t want to feel constrained on my blog anymore, nor do I want to let any of my readers down.
The question I asked in the title of the post still stands, however. Am I the same blogger I was 6 months ago? Am I the same blogger I was when I first started? Yes, and no. I am the same person, and I still love all the same things- I just never expressed the love for it on my blog back then. I feel as though my blog is growing with my interests. As I become more interested in things, I want to blog about them. I want to express my excitement; but I also want to blog about the same old things I’ve always blogged about. From ranting posts, to thoughts, to educating on mental health and Feminism. I want everything I blog about on here to be a reflection of me. That’s why it’s called itsbeccajayne. Because who I am is everything I blog about on here.
Love and happiness always,
