It feels really strange to be sitting here typing up a new blog post - I haven't done this in such a long time and my goodness have I missed it. I never intended to stop blogging when I set up my Handmade by Holly Instagram shop page, it just sort of happened. Being a chronically ill gal, I do struggle with my energy levels and pacing myself with what I can actually do, against what I want to do; so I guess for a while I just haven't felt able to run my business and have a blog too. I saw someone talking about 'micro blogging' on Instagram the other day and it made me realise that's sort of what I'd become, because if you follow me on Instagram I'm sure you'll have realised that I like lengthy captions and I do tend to waffle (haha) I'm also a huge fan of Instagram stories and I do tend to share quite a lot on there. I spend so much of my time at home on my own now and of course I do get a little lonely, so seeing people watching my Insta Stories and sometimes receiving messages about them (which always makes me do a massive happy dance!) and watching other peoples Insta Stories makes me feel a bit more 'connected' and like I'm not going stir crazy being in my living room all the time.

I've been watching some old Vlogmas videos over the past couple of weeks whilst making my teddies to get me in the festive spirit (not that I usually need much encouragement, but it just seems to have come round so fast this year - hopefully I'm not the only one who feels like this?!) and I've been thinking loads about how much I miss blogging and having ideas pop into my head of things that would make good blog posts but aren't quite right to share on Instagram.

I've copied across some of my favourite posts from my previous blog and things are going to be very lifestyle/diary based on here. I want to be able to look back on this blog in years to come (and maybe show it to my children too!) and just share little snippets and highlights of my life and running my small business :)

I would love to find some new blogs to follow as I feel pretty out of the loop with blogging things now, so if you have a blog or you have any recommendations please send me the link.
