Blogging: The fear and the angst

I always go through some angst with my blog. Questions such as, 'do people really care?' and 'why am i doing this?' often cross my mind. At the end of the day I like having my own piece of the internet to post some stuff because I want to.

As some of you may know I have been blogging, vlogging and generally spreading myself around the internet for the last 7 years.

I love fashion and photography. I like things that make me smile. Not kittens and ponies. Although, I do sometimes smile when a kitten is riding a pony. Sometimes. So anyway that is what you get here, the photography and fashion, not the latter.

Now I have some time off from my acting course for summer I would like to post a bit more on my neglected blog. I used to have no fear about these things.

I have been toiling with the idea of posting to Lookbook.nu. But, I feel too old for Lookbook.nu to the point I am scared to post there. Does that it matter? My own blog is safe for me. Safe from the competition of gorgeous 14 year old Scandinavian girls who are fashion editors, run small vintage online shops in their spare time, and model for their pocket money. God, I love those girls.

In conclusion: My summer resolution is to blog. Blog with no fear. Start sharing some of my life again. I have even opened up the comments again so comment if you feel inclined.

Some ideas for your comments:
Do you feel the fear and angst about blogging?
Are you too old for Lookbook.nu?
Have you ever seen a kitten ride a pony?

Here is a self portrait from my recent Dungeness extravaganza.


  1. Fear? Pah! Spit on your fear!
    Treat it like the dirty bitch it is.
    Have a grooovy summer

  2. Thanks Ralph! I will try. Have a great summer too. :)

  3. I think I'm too old for the interweb. It's embarassing how much time I used to spend on Myspace - I think I'm friends with all those 14yr old Scandinavian girls, and I just I don't get why they never replied to my messages.

  4. @tresdigital I just don't get why they don't reply to you either.

  5. Totally feel your pain lady. This blogging lark is tricky! I am totally blogging up to the max this summer. Lets get our blog on and show these kids how its done! x x x

  6. Glad I am not the only one Claire! You're right, I think we show these kids how it's done. x

  7. MAybe 78 messages a day was a making me come across a little too eager.

  8. Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. :)

    Btw, I just stumbled upon your blog. Love it!
