REEVALUATING EARTH TO KACE

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

GUYS! EARTH TO KACE IS OFFICIALLY BACK!

I'm so excited to be blogging again. My last post was about a month ago and while I wish I could've kept up with it, life just got in the way.

October was such a crazy month. While it has always been my favorite, it seems to be the busiest. I celebrated Odie's first birthday, completed all of my Halloween traditions (carving pumpkins, baking spooky treats, etc.), went to a Halloween party and spent way too much time on my costume's makeup, and had a drunken night of karaoke on actual Halloween.

While this October was non-stop, it was a huge success. As November rolled around, the stress began to build. School started piling up with group projects, papers, and presentations. School became so overwhelming, I wasn't able to have time for myself.

On top of never ending school work, I have been trying to figure out my future. My last semester in college starts in January and I've been working hard and meeting with professionals within my career choice for guidance. I've been on the hunt for an internship for the Spring 2017 and so far things are looking great.

I also had the opportunity to work alongside the Corpus Christi Caller-Times newspaper on election night. I traveled to the next county over and collected election results, reported the results to the newsroom, and asked election volunteers and workers specific questions.

I feel so blessed to be able to get my foot in the door in the journalism field. It makes me so much more excited to graduate and begin my journey in the work force.

Speaking of careers, while on my hiatus from Earth to Kace, I realized I started only blogging for the possible chance to be able to do this for a living. I strived to be BIG, like bloggers including Zoella, Aspyn Ovard, and Tanya Burr. I wanted to get sponsors, ad revenue, and a following.

When I started my YouTube channel, I strived for as many subscribers as I could get. I wanted opportunities handed to me because of my channel like the Sacconejolys. I wanted to be KNOWN.

I've come to realize, it wasn't fun for me to do anymore. Writing blog posts became a hassle and remembering to vlog was a chore. With this mindset of becoming a "famous" or "successful" blogger/vlogger, I started forgetting the real reason I started doing this.

I wanted to write. I love writing and Earth to Kace was a way for me to get all my thoughts out there. As for vlogging, I started because I wanted my friends and family to be able to see what I was up to. I also wanted to store the memories so I go back and watch them. And while I re-watch my vlogs quite a bit, I realized that I began to only worry about getting my video up on time. I didn't put much thought or effort into each of them.

So with ALL that being said, I have decided to reevaluate my thinking. I will NOT have a blogging or vlogging schedule anymore. I want to love Earth to Kace again. I don't want to dread having to write a blog post or put little effort in editing my vlogs. I will do all of it for fun!

I will now write a blog post when I'm inspired and really want to. I will make sure my vlogs follow a quality over quantity rule. Because of this, Earth to Kace may have a blog post multiple times in one week then not have one for a month. Same with my vlogs. I may have one per week for a few months then not have one until I go on a trip or do something exciting.

While I know this will bring less viewers and readers to Earth to Kace, I will finally be happy and actually enjoy what I started two years ago.

Thank you for understanding. If you have any blog requests, leave them down in the comment section below! See ya when I see ya!

  1. I was in the same place recently. I tried so hard to turn my blog in to something I thought it had to be (a business, super popular, etc) that I started hating it. I didn't enjoy it anymore and it became tedious and frustrating. Sometimes you just have to take a step back and find your own heart in it again.
