First 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?
