Why I’ve been gone//+ I hit 1k on instagram?!

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy bitsy corner of the web! Or if your new here, thanks for checking out my blog. You can find more about me here!

If your one of my regular visitors you might have noticed that I haven’t posted for quite a while. Recently I have of been in a creativity block, I have been a bit unmotivated and it has been a little harder to come up with unique and interesting blog post ideas. You may have even noticed that some of my more recent posts have been a little jumbled and not as long as my other posts. It has been pretty refreshing to take a break from my blog, It has helped me focus on some of my priorities like studying more, but I have really missed blogging and sharing my thoughts with you guys. So I’m happy to say that I am back.

I am going to try to post twice a week; Tuesdays and Fridays, like I tried to do before. Tuesdays will have a more bookish theme and Fridays will have more of a lifestyle theme. And I will try to keep you guys updated by posting on my Instagram @elysianartiste.

Speaking of Instagram, I recently hit 1k+ followers which I am sooo thankful for. As a teen blogger, It can be easy to get discouraged and feel like your content is trashy, So it means so much that 1000+ people appreciate my content and enjoy it! I honestly never imagined I would get that far. I am really thankful that my parents entrusted me with Instagram because they aren’t really huge fans of social media, so I am so grateful that they allowed me to use it.

If you are allowed to use Instagram, I really recommend you follow my page @elysianartiste, I post daily, and I have fun quizzes and stuff on my story and its easier for me to engage with my followers.

If you arent allowed to use Instagram I totally feel you. It took many tries to get my parents to agree to let me use Instagram as another platform to express my creativity. If you really want Instagram, I recommend setting aside a time to talk to your parents when they are not busy or working on anything else. Explain why you want it, The benefits of having it, and ask what the boundaries are and If they do allow you to have it, respect the boundaries. Once they see you obeying the boundaries it allows them to trust you more and eventually they will give you more freedom.

So yeah, short story long that’s why I have been gone and not so active with my posting. I am really excited to get back into the blogging world. I have a bunch of great content that I cannot wait to share with all of you!

Thanks for reading today’s blog post! I am excited to get back into the blogging world!

 

keep smiling, ava

I figured that I should finally try to write a blog post. Though I’ve been struggling with writing because Mr. Writers Block decided to stop by for a visit. You may or may not remember that dandy old fellow from one of my older posts! heh… not the best person I’ve met. So I decided to tackle the murderous dragon and FINALLY WRITE A BLOG POST.

˜”*°•.˜”*°• Next Monday I am going to TRY as hard as I can to post a Renegades and Wires and Nerve #2 review HOPEFULLY! I’m sorry I haven’t been able to review them sooner!

For almost all of April, it was RAINY AND MUDDY. That prevented us from playing out in the backyard because it was VERY MUDDY. The rain was awfully beautiful though! (●´ω`●)(●´ω`●)(●´ω`●) Even though I love jumping in puddles, it often leads to a mess and ruining one of my outfits and other drama. SOOO I just stopped jumping in puddles! (●´ω`●)

I love rain! It’s beautiful and just amazing somehow to me! It inspires me to write and I just love snuggling under a blanket reading on those rainy days!

But soon the rain went away!

…And nope, we didn’t spot any rainbows…
