my break from blogging.

First of all, and excuse my french, but can I just say how f***ing awesome it feels to be back in the blogging game.

I’ve been sitting out for months now, feeling uninspired, unmotivated and unhappy.
Unhappy with how I had been blogging and how I was feeling about it in general, unhappy with my appearance and how my style had changed and generally just unmotivated to write and to blog.

It became a chore, something I never wanted to happen. I found myself dredding going and taking photos, procrastinating and putting it off and it was at this time I decided to take a break.

I never expected or anticipated that it would take this long to come back, and I have undoubtedly lost readers and possible opportunities I am aware of that, but I needed to walk away, just for a little while to make sure that I was in it for the right reasons.

Blogging used to make me happy, but I became reluctant to do it and every week extended out to fortnightly and then monthly and then before I knew it it had been nearly 6 months and I was devestated.

I was annoyed at myself for being lazy and letting it go so long, opportunities from companies left unopened in my inbox and I became ashamed that I had let it go so long and the longer I left it, the harder it was to come back.

It wasn’t until I was at the Curvy Couture Roadshow last week (my post from the day WILL be up soon, I promise) that I really found myself missing the blogging world, I met my blogging idols, Danimezza, iCurvy, Suger Coat It and I really missed being a part of that community again.
I missed participating in Aussie Curves challenges and I missed an excuse to get dressed up and take photos in my garden for no real reason.
I knew it was time to come back.

Then when I was contacted by the lovely ModStylists from ModCloth (Click here to read the full post) to put a post together I knew it wasn’t too late, it was an offer and an opportunity to work with a brand I truly loved and I knew that if I ignored this email, like so many others, that I may as well close the doors of Vintage Curvette forever, and to be perfectly honest I’m so, so glad that I didn’t.

And now I’m back, and I’m not going to promise that I will never take a break again nor will I be posting twice a week every week, but I’m back, and for now, happy.

Some things on the blog may change, but for now, I’m excited to be back, I find myself taking lots of photos and planning extra things I can present on the blog and I’m happy that I’m excited and driven and I hope you are too.

For those of you who have stuck by Vintage Curvette, I thank you so much. Without my readers I would have no-one to write to and I’m so grateful that you didn’t give up on this blog and neither did I.

See you really soon,

Taylor aka Vintage Curvette
