Perfect / Good

At the beginning of the year I set this blog up, full of good intentions and with a plan to update regularly. That went well, didn't it?

I don't know what it is, but I get some sort of mental block when it comes to writing blog posts.  Much more so than I do with filming videos for YouTube.  That seems to come so naturally to me now (though getting the lighting set up is a bit of a pain).

It might be down to the fact that historically, the blogs I've had that I kept up for the longest were always more personal than subject driven and I'm not really in a position to share some of the life things in detail the way I used to ten years ago. My life now doesn't permit going into too much detail and in reality, I'm somewhat stuck in a rut and so I don't necessarily feel that I have a huge amount of interesting content to share. Add to that the notion that I'm not sure whether the GlossGalore name lends itself well to a more general/lifestyle blog. One the one hand, it reads more like a beauty blog but on the other hand there isn't any reason why "gloss" couldn't apply to the good things in life as a whole, right?

So maybe I'm just getting in my own way.  A case of the perfect getting in the way of the good, perhaps.

Must try harder.


  1. I know how you feel Beth, sometimes I have a mental block on youtube as well as my blog lol If I'm not feeling up to it or not in a great mood I won' t do it. It's hard putting yourself out there. I take a step back every now and then just to gather my thoughts and stuff. Either way I think you are doing a splendid job! Much love xoxox Shaz

  2. Thank you so much Shaz, I very much appreciate your support! I'm very conscious that if I'm not feeling sparkly it will come across in my videos and posts and frankly, no one needs to see me moping! I hope you're having a great weekend xx
