More personal and lifestyle posts?

After getting numerous requests and messages from followers of my previous blog, www.lifewithoutanorexia.com , telling me that they miss my personal updates and reading about myself i have decided to maybe start being more open and personal on here as well.

Lifestyle updates-!

My initial aim with this blog was to just keep it vegan, recipe, nutrition related. But the more i think about it, the more i realise that i miss actual blogging. When i read blogs i like reading about the person, about their day and about them… it doesnt matter if they just write about a day where they did nothing, i like the connection. But also i think it is easier to connect and follow and enjoy blogs when you make a connection with the person behind the blog. What i dont miss about my previous blog is the constant pressure i felt to always write advice posts, to always write posts related to eating disorders when i no longer felt that connection, motivation or inspiration to write about eating disorder help or advice. I felt it was draining and not what i wanted to do anymore… i wanted to move away from that and that is what i prefer about this blog, it is more open… it is new and i can write about what i want. I like that i can post recipes and nutrition advice, write about exercise without feeling like i will trigger people or write about nutrition and different changes to recipes without feeling like i will trigger someone.

So i have decided to write more about my life on here as well, so it will be a lifestyle blog but with focus on nutrition, recipes and veganism… so a bit of everything and hopefully you will continue to read and find something you like on here 🙂

My first lifestyle update will be posted above this post! Let me know what you think… more lifestyle and personal updates or keep it just to recipes, veganism, nutrition?

Also, if you have any comments for questions for me or about me, just comment and i will do my best to answer either in the comment section or in a post 🙂

  2. I agree – you look so well and happy! I`m so glad you have found what you really wanted to do with this, your new blog and I think its fantastic that you are writing about things you like and are passionate about instead of feeling the pressure to write about things you have left behind you. Yes, lifestyle and personal posts would be great – I`d love to know how you are getting on, how you are doing at Uni etc but the important thing is only for you to write what you are comfortable with. I love this blog – its lively, interesting and always different and I think a mix of lifestyle/personal posts as well as the nutrition/vegan/recipe/fitness and health posts would work well too. It is nice to have that connection – and its always nice to see your comments after the replies on posts too.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I do try my best to answer comments when i have time, though with school work and all the reading and writing i have to do it can sometimes take a few days until i actually reply. But i think it is so important to connect with my readers and to reply as much as i can, thats what makes the difference between a good and not so good blog according to me hahah! Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

    I love reading your personal posts! And with this blog, there’s not really a connection to eating disorders, so you don’t feel like you need to write about something you can’t relate to anymore (which I really understand). 🙂
