Blog Comforts.

My plan was to blog a whole lot more this year now that I feel like I have my own style and have found some sense in my own ramblings – but recently things have been a little hard on me, and the blog has suffered because of it.

Cos every blog post should have a bit of Ryan, right?

I know that this little blog shouldn’t be my main worry at the moment – I’m sure you’d all manage just fine without it for a week or two – but it’s an escape that I never realised the importance of until recently. It may only take a short time to write the post, or find an image, or think up an idea… but the way it tunes you out of everything else in your mind, even if just for a little while – is pretty amazing.

I’ve had a lot to deal with lately, and I’m dealing with it miles away from my friends and family, so I almost didn’t want to post anything – at least until I was out of whatever this mess is and feeling better about myself. But I decided it might be a good idea to get something out on the page – to give me some sort of clarity or outer perspective, maybe. I realise that without telling you exactly what is going on right now, you can’t really sympathise with me – but I want this to be more about the comfort we find in our own blogs, rather than the problems we battle while we write them.

I’m not sure when I’ll start writing again – it could be tomorrow, or next week. It could be tonight! I’m a bit of a loose wire like that. But whenever it is, I’m looking forward to it – because at least then I’ll know I’ve made it out the other side.


  1. I hope thing sort themselves out for you soon. Write when you feel like it, everyone understands that sometimes life gets in the way and is more important than putting up a post to a schedule only you set.

    I think for those who are comfortable with it, blogs can be a great relief.

  2. Hey Rachael, Your blog is honestly one of my favourites! Love the way you write it always cheers me up and I can always relate to you. Hope your feeling better about things soon! Totally agree about blogging bliss, Serena x

  3. Hey Serena, that comment couldn't have come at a better time - thank youuu! :) I think I need to just throw myself back into it as a distraction x

  4. I hope you feel better soon - don't feel a rush to blog until you're ready. On another note, Ryan Gosling would make me blog any day x

  5. Thanks Josie - I've just bought myself a dress that I can't afford... which has definitely helped! x
