Hello people! Remember me? I know, I know….I haven’t blogged in like forever! It’s a mix of life just being too busy, losing a bit of motivation to blog (I am still pretty active on Instagram) and not really being sure anymore what my ‘niche’ is on this blog. I started this blog 7 years ago very much as a beauty blogger, and it then over time it became more about fashion and lifestyle with a big focus on food by adding my favourite recipes and recommending foodie places to visit. So now, what’s next…?
Well, I think my passion for beauty blogging has faded. I mean I still am obsessed with trying every new lipstick or eyeshadow on the market, but I just don’t feel the need to talk about it on here anymore and my days of posting “smokey eye FOTD’s” are definitely behind me. Fashion? Yes another love of mine but I also don’t consider myself a true fashion blogger. The landscape of fashion blogging has changed so much in the last 5 years and people are just so more professional with their approach and style that this is not something I want or have time to ‘compete’ with. I also realised that as much as I loved blogging I actually didn’t want the main focus of my blog to be so much around me; as in my face, my clothes etc. I prefer to be snapping pictures of food and other things that catch my eye rather than me being the subject of the photos. Plus I am no model and I have no inspiration to be one.
Food on the other hand is still a big part of my life. I love cooking it, eating it and…? taking photos of it! With photography being another big love of mine I think the natural thing would be to focus more on food and lifestyle posts but if I am really honest, I still haven’t quite figured it all out yet on where to take my blog…
So, if you have any comments, feedback or suggestions then I’d love to hear them! And in the mean time please just bear with me while I work out my online journey and see what’s next for dutchessroz.com. You can however keep up with me and follow me on Instagram or Pinterest (two of my main social obsessions these days!) Thanks, xx Roz
