Should I Stay Or Should I Go

See the photos first. If you care about what I have to say, continue below.

For quite some time now, I've been thinking about quitting this blogging thing.

My blog used to be a kind of an asylum for me, something I was looking forward to after my harrowing work. It was a "that's what I wanna do" thing, a unique experience of joy in a way that I don't remember feeling before. But over time, it's just gotten stressful for me. I hate having my photos taken and it shows. I can't produce even the shortest text worth posting. My outfits don't seem interesting enough. It's tiring and discouraging. You know when people end relationships and they say they don't "feel" their partner anymore? This sums it up pretty well - I don't feel my fucking blog anymore.

And despite all of this, I just can't decide to quit it yet. There's still something here that doesn't allow me to let go. It's my love for dressing up, the amazing friends and acquaintances I met via my blog, and last but not least, there's also that stupid little fear: if I quit this thing, what do I have left?

Confused could be my freaking middle name.

hmmm... te razumem kaj hočeš povedat.
lej če ti ne paše ti ne paše, če boš odnehala, se lahko še vedno vrneš nazaj, ko boš imela zagon in pozitivne misli.
če to sedaj ni to, poišči tisto stvar ki te bo navduševala in izpopolnjevala kje drugje!
pa srečno v čemerkoli in kjerkoli boš zadovoljna!
pa naj bo na blogu ali pa kje drugje :* hug

Ker živim v (lažnem?) prepričanju, da se da mnogo težav rešiti z branjem, priporočam kakšen spletni članek o blogerskih krizah in kako jih premagati. Problogger ima sigurno kakšen zapis o tem.

Nočem, da izgineš. :(

Quitting may not be the answer. Maybe you have to rediscover what it is about blogging that you enjoyed so much. Look at taking a different direction- do you style and photograph others? Do you street style? If you don't enjoy having you're photo taken, do you create style sets with your clothing on a mannequin? Draw illustrations? There are tonnes of other creative outlets you can use within your blog. Rediscover what it is that you enjoy most and go with it.

Loving the socks and shoes by the way.

great blazer. the bright blue and gold jewwlerry is perfect. I do care about what you have to say. I contemplated quitting at the begining because I couldn't come up with any worthy offering to the blogging world. You on the other hand do have something to offer, unique outifts with punches of colour. I take repreives from having my picture taken with model posts, runway stuff or random photos of objects and a short write up. Maybe to engage yourself more dedicate a write up. If it keeps pulling you back I'm sure its meant to be.

Sej ne da mam blog ne vem kolko časa, samo sem že tolkokrat bla na meji, da pustim vse skupaj.
Na momente je tut meni stresno, sej magari sem se zdaj že navadla, mi je že kar samoumevno in mi paše blogat, samo kdaj pa kdaj sem že prav štufa vsega in se slikat in pisat in vse. Ampak delat use na hitro, random slike in objavljat high fashion editoriale, ki me dobesedno ne brigajo mi pa tut ni moj stil. Po drugi strani, ko napišem cel članek osebnega zravn, se vprašam pa a je to sploh še fashion blog al je že bolj moje razmišljanje in da itak bo ljudi bolilo kar mam za povedat. In potem ne vem več kaj bi rada mela. No, mam bolj druge razloge, samo čeprav mam ful rada modo mi gre včasih malo na živce ta "modni svet", ko zgleda kot, da usi zanalašč pretiravajo in da že prav moraš pisat kako si želiš nek drag kos iz neke kolekcije in da moraš bit osveščen o čisto vsaki malenkosti in govorit o tem kak "dreamer" si in kako bi šel živet v Pariz.
No, kar hočem povedat...sej te ne poznam, ampak tvoj blog mi je en teh normalnih, ki pokažejo kar majo za pokazat, povejo kar je za povedat in bi ga pogrešala.
In upam, da ne začnem kakih polemik zdej s tem...

Maybe you should take a short break from posting outfits if taking photos gets annoying. See how it goes. You could also try this kind of posts http://apair-andaspare.blogspot.com/2011/02/summer-yellow-skirt.html . I've seen it on some top blogs recently and really enjoyed.
On a different note, sometimes only time can tell.
Good luck!

jaz predlagam počitnice/kratek oddih od bloganja, boš vidla da se boš z veseljam vrnila nazaj :) škoda bi blo nehat!

Se pridružujem Nininemu mnenju. In ja, tudi meni se zdi, da bi včasih nehala, ampak je po moje to bolj zato, ker si ne postavim jasnih pozitivnih ciljev, kaj sploh hočem z blogom doseč, širit. Mislim, da bi tebi tudi kaj takšnega morda pomagalo, če bi se vsela in dol zapisala, kaj bi lahko bilo poslanstvo tvojega bloga. Dajem sebi pa tebi naenkrat nasvet :D

No, ravno je kolegica prišla in je rekla, 'Kak je vreji oblečena'. Tak, da brez skrbi, imaš zanimive outfite, ampak včasih bolj, včasih manj, tak kot jih imamo več ali manj tudi vse ostale.

Drugač, če pa nehaš, ne skrbi, slej ko prej te bomo pozabili :D Joooke.


Mir in ljubezen!
