The last time I posted on here was nearly three years ago.
I stopped writing ‘LauraLaura’ and started a new blog, Bitch, Peas! – with the intention of focusing on food. Reviews, recipes etc. I just couldn’t get anywhere with it. I loved the new brand, I LOVED the name but I just found myself not in love with the box I’d forced myself into.
I thought It was going to be so much fun having only one topic to focus on, but the reality was that I just didn’t really do anything apart from microblog on Instagram – it was the only thing I enjoyed.
Fast forward to today. I’m at home on a Saturday morning with some free time after making a coffee and putting on a face mask. No really…
I look like a creepy clown. Anyone want to hire me for their kid’s party?
I’ve been feeling like a blogger fraud for the last few years. I own and help run #NZBloggers and #BRUNCHCLUB events but I haven’t even been blogging. I’ve been downright awful to myself, scolding and telling myself that I should just give up the website and groups because I’m not a ‘real blogger’. And anytime I felt like putting in some effort into blogging it just turned into a blob of self-doubt.
Had enough. Sick of it.
I’m gonna do what I wanna do when I have the spare time to throw at it. If I don’t finish something I said I’m gonna (ahem) then fuck it – I’m not going to put myself in jail and not collect $200. I’m just gonna do my best.
So. It’s been a while.
and that’s okay.
