Holding Back

Over the past couple of years I've been rambling on about trying harder with blogging but it didn't happen until the beginning of this year.

Morgan's Milieu | Holding Back: View of Cinderella's Castle in the Magic Kingdom, from Tomorrowland Terrace.
I'll be visiting this magical place, enjoying my holiday, and when I return I'll be ready to FLY!

In January I thought about the things I love, the things I enjoy and decided to concentrate on those things. Since January I've made a few decisions, one of which was to let go of the novel (for now). That was probably the best decision I've made in a long time.

Being able to focus solely on blogging has opened my mind to possibilities. For years I've watched as other bloggers have fantastic opportunities and part of me always thought "why not me?" Of course I already knew why it wasn't me.

For a start I wasn't trying, not really. I wrote every day but I wasn't putting my heart into it and that showed. I didn't share other people's posts and rarely commented. Not great for the blogger love.

Recently I have been trying, more than ever before, and some of the opportunities coming my way are amazing. But I'm still holding back. The reason?

My holiday.

In 4 weeks I head off to Orlando, Florida for six weeks. To me it seemed silly trying to build up the blog when I'm going to be away for so long. 

However, I've now realised that even though I'll be away and won't have time for writing I can still be social. I can still be there, on social media.

My original plan was to just let you all know I wouldn't be around for six weeks. Not great huh?

Now though, I have a plan forming. I'm going to ask a few of my favourite pro-bloggers if they'll do interviews. I think six ought to do it, one for each week.

The next part of the plan involves you, my dear readers. If any of you would like to guest post here on Morgan's Milieu for me I'd love to hear from you. It gives me a chance to show you off. I have six weeks to fill, so there's plenty of spots! 

If you're interested in guest posting for Morgan's Milieu email me here.

Can't wait to hear from you.

  4. Wow, 6 weeks sounds amazing! I know what you mean about making a decision to put more effort in as I have too, as I've always held back a bit too. Xx #allaboutyou

    1. Thanks hun. It is difficult sometimes, blogging takes a lot of work and when the family requires your attention you can feel torn. But I've promised myself I'm going to do it now. I'm ready.

      I hope it goes well for you Caroline, although I always thought you did a great job! I love reading your blog. :)

  5. Six weeks in Florida sounds AMAZING! I am super jealous and look forward to hearing about it.

    1. Thanks Rachel. I'll definitely have a lot of writing to do when I return! ;)
