If you're not gonna blog, DON'T HAVE A BLOG?! It's kinda simple.

The title of this post is a comment that I received yesterday on my last post and I'm ashamed to say I now feel the need to justify myself. I created this blog, first and foremostly, for myself. Writing has always been something I love and blogging began as a hobby for me. The fact that people read what I write is a wonderful and often surprising bonus.

Over the last few months I have not given the blog enough time and this is something that I intend to rectify however I have been living a busy and fulfilling 'real' life. I now get paid to write, about shoes no less, and perhaps my creativity is spent by the time I come to blog. I am also acutely aware that my blog, compared to hundreds like it, is inferior. I do not look like a model nor do I have the clothes or equipment to produce fashion magazine perfect shots.

I am not naive enough to think that everybody will like what I do here but I do believe that I have a right to exist regardless of how often I post.

While I've not been blogging I've been...

  1. Tell them to piss off. You don't need to justify yourself in the slightest. I haven't written on my blog in months (for much the same reasons as you) but I know it's there to go back to when I feel like it. It's not a public service, it's a hobby.

  2. You don't have to justify yourself hun, if you haven't got the time to blog then you haven't got time to blog.. 'simples' It's probs better not to post at all, than post something that you wrote just for the sake of a post. I've never seen a 'rule book' with blogger on how much you should post, so just ignore rude comments :)
