A New Direction

October 02, 2017

For all you night owls, like myself, you will realise that I am posting this very early in the morning. You will also be aware that it is now the end of the weekend and the mourning will have probably started. Sigh. If not, then the realisation will soon hit once you need to be up in a few hours for work or school. The alarm clock will go off and you will resent yourself for staying up all night, wasting valuable sleeping time. Sleep will feel so sacred to you, so you start planning how you're going to quickly get through the day and then go straight back to bed. However, that never happens and you do the exact same thing as you did the previous night.

Anyways, the purpose of this post was to share a little thought that I have been having about my blog lately. I have come to realise that my content has started to steer towards the 'lifestyle' topic niche rather than beauty and fashion, which are the other two topics that I have always centred my blog around. Don't get me wrong, I'm still very much interested and active within the fashion and beauty industries. Of course, this is expected, considering I am studying Fashion Communication and Promotion at university, but when it comes to my blog, I'm not as enthusiastic to share this interest as I once was when I first launched my blog.

In previous posts, I have mentioned that since starting university, my daily routine has become a lot busier, in which I haven't had as much time to focus on my blog as I used to, hence the lack of posts compared to a couple of years ago. However, I do believe that this may also be due to the fact that I wasn't passionate about the content I was creating anymore. The only exception to this was my lifestyle related posts. Maybe it is perhaps because I now spend every single day studying fashion and I want my blog to be somewhere that can take me away from this industry that I am becoming more and more digested into.

I'm not entirely sure what the stimuli is for this lack of enthusiasm, but what I am sure about is the fact that creating a new direction for clarabellasecrets is the right thing to do. This isn't to say that clarabellasecrets will become a brand new blog with completely different content. I'm still going to be writing about the same things that I write about. There's just going to be less beauty and fashion. My blog was starting to look like the customer review section of Amazon. Although, that's not to say that I am going to completely steer away from the fashion and beauty categories, as I still very much enjoy being a part of these 'worlds', shall we say. If I find the inspiration, then I will still write about a new trend that I am digging or a new eyeshadow palette that I am using, for example. I'm just not going to write a review about evert single makeup product I buy.

I have so many exciting ideas and even just brainstorming them is starting to bring my buzz back. I feel like the passion I have for blogging has awoken, after a minor nap, and it's ready to create better quality content than ever before. I want to touch on absolutely everything that shapes me into the person that I am today, as I am more than just 'fashion, beauty and lifestyle'. Yes, I do understand that this is a risk that I am taking now that I'm not necessarily subjecting myself to blogging 'topics', but taking risks is what makes life so exciting.

Anyways, its now 3:29 am and I think its time to stop wasting valuable sleeping time or I will resent myself even more in the morning. Night, night!
