A blog-identity crisis.



I think I'm having a little blog-identity crisis.


I feel like this quite often, in fact I'm pretty sure that it was around this time last year that I wrote a similar post; I feel like I don't quite know where my blog belongs within the blogosphere. I want my blog to do well, of course I do. I invest so much time, money, and energy in this little space of the internet, that I want people to see it and read what I write, because that's come to mean quite a lot to me. 

I want to create content that people are going to enjoy reading and relate to. I want my imagery to be the best that it can possibly be, but most importantly, I want to continue to enjoy creating that content. Currently, I'm in a phase where I'm loving it. I'm feeling creative and inspired and I don't want to let go of that just yet. But, I'm still feeling a little lost.  

I say that, although I've kinda just lied to you guys a little. Because actually, I think I do know where I want to take my blog and the kinda 'vibe' that I would like. The problem is, I'm just not sure whether I'm good enough to take it there.

I have all of these ideas in my head of what I want a post to look like, what I want a certain outfit to look like and just generally how I would like the photo's to look like. I do it, look back at the photo's and I always just feel a little 'meh'. Particularly when I then go and browse other blogs and I'm just like;

'Why does mine not look as fabulous as that one?'


That old 'comparison' demon is a little bit of a b*tch, isn't she? Like I mentioned, I have this vision around what I want SophieRosie.com to look like, and what I want to bring to the blogging world. But creating and executing this to your own high standards, isn't always that easy, is it?

I think I just need to continue to write and create, and write and create. Eventually I'm bound to find my feet and figure things out, aren't I?

  2. DO IT, SOPH! Your blog is so incredible and you can do anything you set your mind to! I am feeling the same at the moment.. I feel like I want to do more lifestyle type posts rather than beauty reviews. It's just how I feel my blog has progressed I guess? xx

  7. I know exactly how you feel Sophie! I always find myself comparing my blog to others and it only gets me down. It's so frustrating not knowing exactly what direction you want your blog to go down, but at the same time you kind of do. Hopefully with time I'll be able to get my blog to where I want it to be 100% or at least close.

  9. i'm so sorry you're stuck in this blackhole of comparison. I really don't think you need to concern yourself with your blog not being good enough because i wouldn't be reading every post you write if it wasn't a pleasure to do so. i say you need to just go for it and do what you desire. atleast then, if it's not working out or what ever other reason, you'll have no regrets. every blogger gets that feeling of not being 'good enough' but i know you'll be able to work through it :)

  11. Aww sophie don't worry about blog comparison. Believe it or not, I compare my blog to yours and get stuck in the hole. Everyone compares, it's just part of the game really. Hope you find a way out soon.

    1. Oh, Jessica! I guess you're right about everyone comparing. There's a little comfort in knowing others do it too though, don't you think? :) x
