A Little Update

If you follow me on Twitter you may be pretty up to date but I thought a blog post would be the perfect way to let everyone know what to expect from me and my blog over the next few months.

I really want to try harder because I have been feeling down when it comes to my blog, it's not growing in the way I imagined it would be by now and I sometimes feel I'm not good enough, but I don't feel like giving up anytime soon so the only way to overcome these feelings is via positivity!


I've purchased a vlogging camera.

I splurged on a Sony A5000 not too long ago so I can film vlogs for my YouTube channel. I want to upload on a regular basis so owning a vlogging camera is going to help me achieve that, especially as I want vlogs to be a key part of my channel. I'll still use my DSLR for the at home videos though.

I'm also using the camera as my go to for when my DSLR is too bulky to take with me, such as lunch dates and walks, then I can get the blog pictures I need, the WiFi on the camera also makes it ideal for easy Instagram photos where I'm aiming to post everyday.

I want to rebrand.

A lot of bloggers have rebranded and I love seeing and hearing of the benefits. I've thought about rebranding for a while but it's getting a lot more serious. I dislike Colourful Stuff as my blog name and I want something that flows through my blog URL and my social platforms. I want people to visit my blog and think 'wow this looks great' so changes need to be made. I'm hoping to rebrand in the New Year to give me time to plan thoroughly. I would definitely love suggestions for name picking, theme sites etc.

I plan on doing blogmas.

I'm pretty sure I said this last year and failed, but this year I'm pretty determined to succeed. For those that aren't sure to what blogmas is, it's simply posting everyday in December up to Christmas. This may be simple for those who blog everyday anyway, but if you don't it can be tricky to write and publish posts consistently for 24 days.  It will be great though as I've not been doing well at keeping my posts consistent as it is so this should benefit you all. If you're doing blogmas too then let me know in the comments and I'll be sure to check your blog out!

Have you got any updates for yourself/blog? Tell me in the comments! x

  1. Definitely feeling a similar way about my blog at the moment but I do think it's because I have so much work from Uni! It's a shame because I wanted to do blogmas too!
