About two months ago now I went through my Bloglovin’ account and had a purge. I unfollowed all the blogs that were no longer active (including ones that hadn’t been active since 2012) and I unfollowed a lot of the massive YouTubers who I no longer feel any connection with and whose blog posts / videos are all very overly sponsored. To replace them I tried to find and follow all the people who I’ve been keeping up with on Twitter.
All of this made me think about why I’m blogging and what I want to blog about. It also made me think about the #bbloggers Sunday evening chat where we talked about potential oversaturation. Having spent that time on Bloglovin’ I felt the oversaturation, it’s real. On a base level I might agree that all reviews are different, the more information the better and therefore worthwhile. In reality after one day I was bored of reading a million of the same review of the same product. Even if I don’t read the reviews, just seeing same title over and over… I’m sorry, it’s not for me.
I want to blog what I enjoy reading and viewing.
I adore hauls, I loving seeing different fashion looks and makeup looks, I enjoy bloggers that chat to me and tell me about their lives, I still love being nosy and reading what’s in my… posts and favourites lists give me life.
I know a lot of people who live for reviews and don’t get me wrong, I will always read reviews from British Beauty Blogger, Phyrra and Temptalia. Largely because they get there first and provide an excellent quality of review, beyond that unless it’s a product I haven’t seen before I’m sorry but I’m not interested… Which means I only want to write reviews of products I haven’t seen people using.
I want to do more posts like this one:
I want to have fun! So I hope you don’t mind if that’s what I continue to do 🙂
P.S. I’m not trying to bash anyone, we’re all different and we all want different things from our blogs. This is just what I want from mine ❤
