quality over quantity

all whiteall whiteall whiteall whiteall whiteFirst of all, I want to start of with a big thank you for those of you who recently took to time to give me feedback about the blog. You have no idea how much it means to me. YOU are the reason I keep going down this crazy path, so thank you once again dear kind people from the bottom of my heart.

Long post incoming, but I want to touch upon my silence lately. To tell you the truth, I’ve been in this creative rut. And I’m not the only one who’s said that before. When I first started blogging I wondered where some of my peers disappeared. They would be gone for a week or two, some of them actually never returned. Some I miss dearly, their positivity lit up the whole place, funny how that mindset is almost not sustainable.

I didn’t quite get why in the beginning, but as I’ve clocked in for over a year worth of time and sweat in it, I get it more than ever. One way or the other, social media can be toxic, you probably already read that part on the news or experienced it in person. For that very same reason, I’ve lately felt ‘burnt out’. Trying to please everyone on a daily basis is not the easiest job.

So I’ve decided to give up on that whole thought, and focus on producing less but more quality work. Most importantly work that we’re proud of. As you may have already noticed on Instagram, there’s more emphasis on photography which is something I’ve been passionate about my whole life. I’d love to create content more frequently, but the current state of the blogging industry makes it quite challenging to create a self sustainable business. If I were to accept free products for every post, then you wouldn’t know what’s an ad and what’s really Fashion Mews. And there’s no fun in that.

Once again, a big thank you for following along and your support. If there are any specific subjects you’d love to hear more of, please drop us a line at thefashiomews [at] gmail.com.

An all white look feels kind of fitting for this post, doesn’t it?

  2. I think burning out is inevitable in the blogging world but you should do what’s right for you. You have a beautiful blog and can’t wait to see more 🙂

  3. I love the place of honesty you’re coming from and it’s refreshing to hear about this from a blogger I admire so much… Such funny timing because I just sent an email to my newsletter admitting to some writers block! I’m still fairly new to blogging but I recently bit off more than I can chew in my personal life and it’s totally drained my creativity (even though my blog is my passion). Take some you time and take care of yourself <3

  4. I love the honesty and raw thoughts in this post; I think every blogger at some point has felt burnt out. As a reader, it’s always the more quality work that sticks out to me and gets me to visit that blog more regularly than those that post frequently with throwaway content. No matter what you decided to do I’ll be a fan of your content always!

  5. I so get this whole quality or quantity thing. It is hard to constantly be inspired yet still wanting to be consistent with what’s going out. I always love seeing your inspo and your photography is something I have enjoyed seeing more of. You are so talented! Adore you and this white look. xx, Erin – http://www.stylebythepeople.com

  6. You will get all the supoort from all your fans. Love you. I havd been a loyal fan follower etc.. Theres been other fascinating bloggers I stopped following..they seemed more interested in themselves than touching base with anyone, but could have just been the rut. Anyway, now I dont feel so bad about not being able to blog on a daily basis…i have so much inspiration and so many ideas and tips to share but the visual part gets me going more.
    Take care and thanks for visiting my instagram. Ive noticed your likes and comments xxx

    I can totally relate to this thought. I had the same feeling month or so back, and didn’t really know if I’d ever get my inspiration back. Thankfully I did, and am trying to produce work that I’m proud of, as opposed to killing myself to post frequently. On a side note, this has got to be one of my favourite outfits of yours, Loving those shoes!

  8. I think this is something most bloggers can relate to! I took a hiatus for a few months last year, and I’ve been feeling burnt out lately too. I’ve seen other bloggers post about the burnout recently as well. It’s important to remember why we do this, and nothing is worth sacrificing our happiness for. If you need to take a step back you have to do what’s right for you!

  9. Great post dear! Your look is fantastic, I absolutely love what you’re wearing and that bag is a dream! A break is always a good idea, and the mean is not to please everybody but to continue doing what it is that you are and you speak for and those who are interested in it will stay around!
    Have a great weekend!
