Oh Where Have You Been, LipstickRules, LipstickRules?
Summer time…and the blogging isn’t easy. Four years of doing this, and I started feeling uninspired. There were a couple of months where I put pressure on myself. The thoughts that ran in my head? You’re going to lose your readers if you don’t post. I felt frustration that I couldn’t keep up with all the product launches – products kept piling up. As for events? Always a no-go for me as I have a both a busy full-time gig outside of the world of makeup, as well as two amazing kids and an awesome husband to spend time with. My blog? Well, I love it but it is always the first to go.
Finally, I took a deep breath and realized, it’s no big deal. While blogging is a passion, it’s never been my goal to do it full-time so the pressure of keeping up with it all left me like a balloon deflating. I’m Keeping Calm, and carrying on.
I realize I can’t do it all, and no one expects me to.
My choice is to keep on plugging away at LipstickRules. It may not be as often as in the past but I love this — and I sincerely hope you all still enjoy reading.
LipstickRules is me. Always has been, always will be.
Let’s do this.
