You shout as you slam your fist on the table. Trust me, I know. And the perfectionist in me is hating it too. But there’s a method to my madness… So here’s the update.
I knew that managing 25 days of blogging with Uni, blog events and deadlines would be hard. However, I could not have accounted for the massive hit that my mental health has taken recently. I spend far more time than I should lying in bed with literally no motivation to do anything or talk to anyone. I’ve had to force myself to socialise and get up in the morning. Therefore, responding to blog comments, reminding myself to take photos and schedule and share posts have taken a backseat. As a result, I’ve become more and more withdrawn from the blogging world, and it’s set me behind on Blogmas.
I’m a massive perfectionist, so when I fall behind or things aren’t as perfect as I want to be, I become really withdrawn and very hard on myself. So at the moment, I’m really hating Blogmas. However, I am committed to this, and I most definitely will finish. Therefore, I’m capitalising on this random surge of inspiration and letting you know my plan.
At the moment, it’s day 11, and as you can see, I’m posting day 9… I’ve got 3 posts to catch up on, so you’re getting 2 today and 2 tomorrow. This lovely one first thing in the morning, and another one at 5!
I’ve had quite a lot of brand work recently, and so I’m attempting to spread it out amongst some rambly posts like these ones, but I’m also struggling with that because all the deadlines have come at once… However, don’t you worry I’ve (Sort of) Got a handle of it all now! And I will keep producing content that isn’t all #spon and #gifted (Even though I only take brand deals that work with my own “brand”.)
Apparently a radio show and a blog and a novel and a newspaper editorial position weren’t enough for me… I decided to (re)start something else soon… I won’t reveal anything else because if it doesn’t happen that will be disappointing. However, it’s not that hard to guess, and I am more than a little bit excited.
And there you have it, how the next few days of my Blogmas will get back on track! Let me know what you think!
16 days til Christmas (But not really lol)
Hey, I'm Jasmine Burke. A girl in her twenties fresh out of Uni that's trying to write in any way that she can. I go under the branch of "lifestyle" but honestly, you can find pretty much anything on here.
