Sophie Rosie: A blog & a blogger

Whether we're the ones that are reading the blogs, writing the blogs, or the pour souls that get dragged round to take photo's of said bloggers and then have to wait 10 minutes before you're allowed to tuck into your breakfast 'cause lord knows what would happen if we didn't get a perfectly Instagrammable shot from this, blogging is so personal to each and every one of us.
Thinking about this got me thinking about who I am as a blogger, and what kind of blogger I want to be. Basically, I came to the conclusion that omg I'm so far away from what I want to be that I could cry a little and start over. But I won't. Promise.  I'm fully aware that I'm probs being a little over-dramatic here, but just humour me for a sec, k? Cool. Thanks.
If you caught me on Twitter a few days ago, I was talking about the fact that there are so, so many blogs out there at the minute, and it's this that is part of all my motivation to continue to improve everything about this blog. My writing, content, imagery, the lot.
I want to be totally relatable to the people that pop over and visit here. I want my blog to be visually spot on. I want my photographs to be perfect every single time, and I want my writing to be interesting, quirky and funny (alright, alright, no need to look at me like that, I'm working on that bit.).
I love my blog, don't get me wrong, and I'm super proud of how much it's grown and changed in just over a year. But, as with most things, I know there's so, so much room for improvement, and the Impatient Annie in me wants to just get to a place where I'm happy with it right now. Like, right now please and thank you.
I want to be a lifestyle and fashion blog that's positive and happy. I want to share with you all the things that I'm loving right about now and give you idea's about goodness knows what and be totally real with you guys and I'm pretty much babbling again, aren't I? Soz.
What I'm trying (and completely failing) at saying, is that I don't feel like I've found my 'blogging place' yet. I don't feel like I've found 'my style' and that makes me a little sad.
So, this is gonna be what the next few months are dedicated to. I'm not going to put a post up unless I'm totally and utterly and 100% happy with everything about it, and I'm going to try and make sure that there's a bit more consistency around here. Hopefully.
Do you feel like you've found your place?


  1. This was a great post to read. I feel like your blog can be whatever you want it to be :-)

  2. I totally know how you feel, i'm pretty much in the same boat right now but i'm positive we can both get to where we want xx

  3. You've hit the nail on the head there! (So if you were after relatable content then this is definitely the way to go :P ) I loved reading this piece and love reading your blog. I'm really excited to see what's next!

  4. This post is definitely one I can relate to. I don't feel like I've found who I am as a blogger yet either, I'm just hoping it'll come with time! x

  5. I love how much your blogs grown and always love your content! I'm sure you will get there very soon, although I think it's pretty spot on already. I know exactly what you mean though, I feel like I've git a long way to go until I find what's right for me.

  6. I don't know if you ever really find a place that you're happy with, but maybe that's just cause I haven't found mine yet either! We're all always growing and learning, so try not to be too hard on yourself, you're doing so well! x

  7. I'm glad you're still trying to find your place in the blogging world because I definitely am too. I haven't been blogging for very long but sometimes I just want to quit bc it's so much work,etc, etc but hopefully as we keep growing we'll find our place and space in the blogging world.

  8. Such a great post. And I'm not too sure in regards to my blog! I like the content I have been creating lately, but I also don't quite know exactly what I want - for me, the fact that people like what I write brings me a lot of joy. So I suppose, just continue with the (hopefully awesome) content. Although I do want this year to be the year I properly figure out a bit of a direction for my blog.

  9. Soph, this was a really lovely post to write. Your photographs are always spot on! I think I've found my place in the blogging world as a blogger who offers quite a lot of varied content and I really like that.

    Lovely post.

  10. I've got no idea what I'm doing with my blog, and I've been at it for years! Happy to hear you've got a clearer vision (is that the right word??) than me, and look forward to seeing how things change x Rebecca -

  11. Lovely post as always Sophie, I'll always come to visit your blog because I love it - can't wait to see more amazing posts in the future!

  12. I'm pretty sure every blogger can relate to this post. But I think your personality and honesty really shines through in your writing which definitely makes it unique! I love reading your posts :) xx
