A Fresh Start

My blog has always been a mess. When I started it, I didn’t know where I was going with it. Actually, I just needed a place to write, and the idea of a blog seemed pretty cool. At first I was writing just for me, sharing my thoughts with no one in particular. Then I discovered others blog and I felt so inspired by them that I felt the need to change mine too. The thing is, I always had plenty of ideas, but somehow I never sticked to them long enough. When I switched to indiellie.com it was such a big deal for me and with my boyfriend’s help I finally made my blog look how I wanted. But speaking of contents, I’ve never been entirely satisfied about what I was writing, maybe because I realized that every other blog I loved had a theme. I tried different things but I always messed up. But lately it’s been so messed up that I lost control of what I was doing.

This is when it hit me: I needed a fresh start.

I know this is not the first “fresh start” this blog has seen from his beginning, but I hope it will be a major one. So, here’s the new deal. I’ve decided that I will mostly focus on photography and lifestyle, since I realized that those are the kind of posts I like to write the most.

I actually took some time to organize my categories, so now it should me easier to navigate through the blog.

Lifestyle: even if I let a “chit chat” page for when I’ll need to just randomly express my thoughts, I will try to post more tips and tricks and self improvement posts. I’m no expert about these, but I enjoy reading similar posts, so why don’t give it a try?

Photography: hopefully I will be able to keep up with my Instax week project, but most of all, I will try to do more photo posts. I really love making those, and this will help me take some time to shoot more, which will sure help me.

As for the language, you may have noticed (or not) that I removed the Polylang plugin, since I wasn’t even using it anymore – too much work, less motivation. So, even if I know my English is far from perfect, I will be using it as main language. Feel free to correct me anytime! For my Italian readers, you can still find all Italian posts here, or just by going back through the posts.

But one of the most important things is that I’m actually trying to get organized with everything – I even used my Calendar app to schedule some stuff! Maybe for the first weeks from now it won’t be working as I planned, since I always need some time to adapt to all the changes. But I will try with all my heart (and good intentions) to commit to it.

Let’s (re)start this adventure!

    • Thank you so much Anna!

    Reborn. Just with my unfinished short stories. And gone international. As a non-Swiss Italian speaker I feel two times foreigner

    • Ciao Marco, scusa ma non ho capito bene cosa intendi con il tuo commento…

      • Marco

        Maybe is my weird English. But I feel foreigner once because you’ll no longer write in Italian and twice because I don’t live in Switzerland. Glad you’re back and you’ll expand your audience. I will keep following you even if for me writing in English is not as spontaneous as doing it in Italian

        • Thank you so much for sticking to the blog, it means a lot to me!
          E se scrivere in inglese è un problema, i commenti in italiano mi vanno più che bene, non ti preoccupare!

  • I know what you mean, sometimes it is hard when there are so many topics and things out there! Your fresh start sounds really good though :) x

    • Thanks Jasmin! Yes, it’s not easy and it’s even harder when everything always seem so interesting!

  • Yayyy for fresh starts! Sounds like you have a good plan, I’m excited to follow along! I’ve been trying to schedule more posts too… sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t but it’s getting easier.

    • Hi Sarah, thanks for the comment! I’ve never been really good in scheduling, but I really want to try and hopefully this fresh start will make things easier for me and my blog :)
      Even if it doesn’t work every time, it’s still worth the try!
