Manicure Monday | Why I began blogging

Happy July guys, I can't believe we are in the second half of the year already, where has the time gone to? But the true question really is What is Time? LOL sorry been watching a lot of GENIUS on NatGeo channel 181.

For most of May/June I could say that I lost my blogging mojo and honestly it couldn't have come at a better time, because I was also just tired. My mind went on a mental lock and couldn’t bear typing out anything I just slept went to work and slept again.

Was the rest worth it? I don't know yet however I am writing again which is good. On top of that I also did a mini vlog yesterday it was random but I just felt like doing it. Blogging allows one to share their thoughts it is such a beautiful thing, so in the Winter of 2014 my colleague/friend Charity who has the blog JustKutloano was working on her blog header during our weekend shift and I asked her what she was doing, she said Blogging. I was shocked cause I thought it was impossible and she was like all you need really is a Gmail account and you are good to go.

The first blog name I thought of was so long - In Out and Around Soweto with Zanele Mondi LOL what was I thinking. The second one, which is the current one In Out & Around Soweto which I still love. Why In Out & Around Soweto, well I have an explanation on that HERE
However, the passion behind it really was to share the love that I have for my home town Soweto, which has been lost lately cause all I blog about really these days is eyebrow pencil review, mascara, eyeliner, lipliner….etc. Don't get me wrong that is good however something is missing from the blog and I plan on rectifying that going forward.

If you don't re-evaluate your past, someone else will. I have seen alot of blogs lose their plot because they want to focus on the in thing, and I'm not saying that is bad however I can't for example be reviewing a very expensive under-eye cream if I have never mentioned any affordable eye creams to begin with. I'm not saying that only reviewing expensive things is bad, all I'm saying is know your readers.

In the same time I won't and will never short-sell my readers just because something is affordable and won't work... I will just tell it like it is... The nailpolish I have on today is one of the Essence Autumn/Winter colors, which is deep and dark and I love it.
June was a time for me to rest and reflect. I would like to thank you all for your kind words during my hibernation I really do appreciate it.

That's it for today's post I hope that you have a great productive week.

See you soon.

xx
