Twitter Bitch-Fests, Willys and House Stress

Welcome to the Blogging By Soph Catch Up. They say what goes up must come down right? A bit like willys [sorry Mum], but seriously, with everything positive that happens there HAS to be some negatives.

Over the past few weeks, in fact pretty much since June, I have been living on a HUGE high. In June, I started blogging again, I started up Graphics By Soph again, it was sunny and hot and EVERYTHING was dandy. July was as equally as fabby, my blog views had exploded and I was working with Vix on improving my social media. Then August came, usually, I hate August, I’m not sure why, BUT last month was SUCH an exception. Apart from THAT blog post which almost caused WW3, I had the best time. I felt like THE blogger. All of my channels were growing AND I found out I could buy a house much sooner than I expected – like a whole 6 months earlier! 

All of a sudden, it’s September, I am currently in the middle of the 28 day, new build exchange ‘race’ [if you have bought a new build before you will know what I mean. As I right this we are on day 15, and the stress is REAL. I want to be excited about moving and Autumn and just feel like I can’t until this is sorted. Don’t get me wrong, I 100% get that this makes me sounds like a PRIZE KNOB because actually I should be grateful that I am even in the position to buy a house – but hopefully you know what I mean.

As well as that, because we are moving imminently [November] I am trying to sort out my room and all of the CRAP I have accumulated over my 23 years of existence and it is such a slow process. In case you haven’t already realised, I am quite impatient and I want everything to be done at once. I have been really productive so far and cleared out lots of bits. However, as a result of all of my sorting my blog and social media has really suffered. Which does break my heart a little bit because August was SO good, I know I am nowhere near at the same place I was this time last month and that just makes me feel SHITTT! 

On top of that [oh WOW this really is a moany post – I hope you enjoyed the Blogging By Soph Catch Up none the less], I have been really struggling with Twitter, it has become ‘bitch-fest’ central and even people that I once really respected and admired have jumped on certain ‘bandwagons’ or just have become overly opinionated and I hate it! Twitter was my favourite platform, I love the interaction and friendships you can make on their, but it had just become depressing.

How has your month been so far? Tell me some positive and exciting THANGS!!

    Aww, Soph, I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling down. It definitely feels much worse when you’re flying high the month before. This was me in August – July had been amazing and then I just seemed to crash… Nothing lasts forever, though. As much as that sucks for the good stuff, it’s good for times like this. It will pass, and hopefully, you will feel fantastic again, because you ARE!

    I haven’t seen any bitchiness on Twitter, thankfully, but I have noticed it becoming more fragmented, rather than lots of people connecting and supporting each other. Everyone seems to be off on their own, which is fine, but there seems to be an odd atmosphere!

    Anyway, wanted you to know that no matter what happens, I’m rooting for you. ? xx

    I loved this post! I’m so glad I’m not the only one whose noticed the bitchiness and the cliques on twitter. Sometimes, I feel slightly out of place and overwhelmed by it so have been avoiding it a lot.

    Glad to hear all about the blog growth, it’s amazing to see results and even better if it helps you buy a house! Don’t beat yourself up too much about losing traffic this month though, it’s understandable that things will change whilst you’re busy and it doesn’t mean things won’t come back up again.
    I’m loving September so far. The end of August was completely shitty due to some family things, but I’m starting to turn it around. I moved into my uni house alone a month early and I thought I’d struggle alone but I’m having SO MUCH FUN. I’ve got so much time to blog, go to the gym, watch Netflix, and generally relax. It’s lovely!
