Baby I Am Back To Blogging!

*ahem* I  AM BAAAAACK! Did you miss me?! No don't answer that...

Hi, my name is L.Bel and I am a sloppy blogger and that is okay. Blogging is still my most important hobby and I am so very very disengaged from it. It's not my fault. Okay it is a little I mean I could at least try a bit harder to find time but you wanna know what, I am a modern day working girl and I am tired and that's okay. 

Right poor excuses, I owe you better than that. It has been over a month since I blogged. A MONTH?! Yeah and that's rubbish of me. Life just gets y'know, in the way. One minute I am working the next I am trying to find time to see friends and family and then I am spending time with the boyf. Yes Bridget Jones of the internet found Mr Darcy and quite frankly I bet none of you saw that one coming. That is also the cringiest thing I have EVER written on this blog and no doubt he will read this and laugh me out the building. As well as causing you lot to cross off and stop reading. I don't blame you, you can leave now. I am sorry for making you cringe yourself inside out. BUT ANYWAY that's not the point, the point I am trying to make is I HAVE BEEN BUSY. Busy and I have also been quite poorly this year which definitely took a toll on blogging. But I am all better now and I need to force myself back into the routine of blogging. 

I thought we could have a catch up, y'know, blogger to reader, what's new with you guys? I've missed you. I've been thinking a lot about you in a none creepy way. I've been thinking about blogging a lot and observing the blog world from my chaotic whirlwind of a life and I came to some revelations about blogging. Just crap I thought 'Oh that's not good' or 'Oh screw it' yknow?

1. It's okay to take a break
Writers block is crap. Writers block and having no time or energy to blog is even crappier. So if you want to take a break that really is okay. I had a fear if I stopped blogging the world would end because my blog is the center of the universe. I joke I joke but I did think taking a break would end The Confessions Of A Professional Drama Queen. But needless to say, my blog still exists and people still engage with it. So the world didn't end. I also saw a few bloggers in a blogger chat (New drinking game, take a shot every time I say blog, bloggers or blogging in this post!) saying how it isn't acceptable to take a blogging break because you'd lose your dedication and wouldn't be a true blogger anymore. I lolled my head off . Believe it or not, there are no rules to blogging and you're your own boss. 

2. Comparison is toxic
What's worse when you can't find the way to get back to blogging? Sitting there and watching the rest of the world blog and comparing yourself to them. That's never going to help me feel motivated to blog again. So don't do that.

3. The outside world can be inspirational and destructive
Wow that sounds like quite the heavy title. Let's not get too serious here. Okay so this blog is built on a foundation of brutal honesty, genuine to the point opinion and a learn-to-laugh at yourself tone. This is how my blog has thrived and what it is praised for the most. However when your inspiration comes from the honesty and frankness of your current situations and those situations become lets say 'adult' and 'professional' and therefore you can't blog about puts a real spanner in the works. There are so many things I wish to share with you about myself but now I am an 'adult' an have an 'adult' lifestyle I can't quite do that anymore. How boring is that?! It is here I seek inspiration from the likes of Carrie Bradshaw...yeah I know she's fictional but her honesty captured and inspired to minds of many and she got awesome success in New York and yeah I don't know where I am going with this... OH yeah, basically, sometimes you have to compromise and blogging is a big learning curve between finding inspiration and playing safe. I mean, if you want to blog about Bridget Jones underwear, you do that! 

SO anyway if you're still reading this blog post, I mean I don't quite feel it made a point but...lets just say, I am coming back to blogging all guns blazing, Beyonce strutting, Bridget Jonesing and doing it full Drama Queen style. So thank you for sticking with me and brace yourself for some brutally honest blog posts and lots of Bridget Jones underwear because yes I still own Bridget Jones underwear with cats on them....
