Ever since I moved back to my mom’s house, I’ve been dealing with a little bit of blogging and YouTube burn out. This is a very common thing that happens in the blogging community but isn’t talked about that much. It’s especially unavoidable to anyone that blogs or posts daily. Every day you’re producing something creative and working very hard from being the author, photographer, and marketing director of everything you produce. And that takes a lot of time and energy, which leads to the unfortunate burn out. So I thought I would share how I deal with those overwhelming moments and how I push through them to keep blogging every day.…

Back in 2015 when I first started blogging, I had one blog where I talked about just anything I wanted to from video games to beauty. Then in 2016, I removed video game type posts from maepolzine.com and moved it to its own blog that I was sharing with my then-roommate. Over the course of the year and a half that blog existed, a lot changed from the name to how focused I was on it. It got to a point on each blog where I was constantly wondering “what next.” I was splitting my attention so much it was becoming hard to keep up with both.

A few years ago, I got into daily blogging through doing Blogmas. Which is you are not aware what this is, it’s basically where you write every single day leading up until Christmas about holiday related topics.

But I still love and appreciate everyone who does it. So I thought I would help any one who does want to join in the festivities on their blog.

Since I was in Junior High School, I have always been the one taking the pictures. I have hardly any pictures of myself from those years up until senior year of High School. Mainly because I was never comfortable being in front of the camera, sure I made video blogs or vlogs on and off during that time frame but not photos. And I’m still a little camera shy, which is why I did the 100 Days of Makeup on Instagram to force myself to get used to taking photos of myself. And to just overall gain some confidence in myself as it all roots down to there. I don’t feel confident with my appearance so I never took pictures of myself. Or let anyone take pictures of me. So how do you go from being extremely camera shy to openly wanting to take selfies? This was the mission I set upon myself several months ago. And here’s what I’ve learned.
