TAKING SHIT SERIOUSLY


Over the past few weeks, I have definitely been taking my blog a bit more serious. I've had my blog for over 2 years now, considering how long my blog has been live, the amount of effort I've put into it, hasn't always been the best. I've loved blogging ever since I've started, ever since a family friend recommended I started a blog as she thought it would be something worth my while.

My blog began as 'Abigail Bunny', a name in which I'd chosen within five minutes and then quickly put together a blog header on a trial version of photoshop, and then innocently slapped up a post about my favourite beauty and fashion things that month.

Over the past year, I've attempted to increase the quality and quantity of my blog posts. I'm finally feeling as though blogging is something that I feel proud of doing. Being a sufferer of anxiety, I've always been insanely paranoid of what people thought of me blogging; Where they laughing behind my back? Did they think I was self obsessed? Did anyone actually care?

I've had numerous points in my life, were I've contemplated whether it was all worth it. Was I just a pointless blog in the depths of all the other fashion and beauty blogs with thousands of followers?
As you can probably tell if you're not new to my blog, my blog has been completely re-worked and re-vamped (I hope you like it by the way) I've done this partly for those people that do read my blog, and ask me over social media when the next one will be, it's for those people who thought that I'd stopped blogging and asked me why, without those people showing their interest, I genuinely don't think I'd have the confidence to write a blog.

Blush & Noise is hear to stay, although we have seen the death of Abigail Bunny in the past few months, I think it's all for the best. For once in my life I'm taking something seriously - Which may be my medication talking as I'm currently ill in bed chugging down pain killers and meal supplement drinks - For all those who want to start a blog, then do it! The only person who's holding you back is yourself. At the end of the day, the people who don't support what you do aren't worth your time.


Love,

  4. "the people who don't support what you do aren't worth your time" totally agree with that! Non of my friends are supporting what I do so I just stopped asking them what they think about my blog, I just try to do my best to improve it. Your blog looks great and the name is also nice. Hope you're feeling better now x

    1. It's so true! People who dismiss what you're doing are more likely jealous, maybe they've wanted to do something similar but never have the confidence? Life is honestly too short to waste time on wishing and wanting when you can be doing and achieving! Love your blog, I think the blogging community can make up for people who are unsupportive at times!

  5. It's great to hear that you're going full force with your blog, I think only good things can come from it. I'm an anxiety sufferer myself and when I started my blog I shared a lot of the same worries. Actually to this day a lot of people in my 'real life' don't know I even have a blog! I think I've come to the point though where no matter who finds out I'm not really bothered by it, if I let what other people think stop me from doing something I want to do I think it's probably all downhill from there...

  6. I think a blog revamp is a great way to get back into blogging. It always inspires me to put more effort into my blog. I really like your new design, it's beautiful Abigail. I really like your new name too.

  8. As someone who has been lucky enough to just discover your blog - I am in love, it's so gorgeous and I'm so excited to keep updated with you! I can totally relate to what you said about sometimes questioning if it's pointless amongst so many other ones and people laughing, I still struggle with that, so it was lovely to hear you say that it doesn't matter - just do it!
