It’s crazy to think, but I actually first started my blog back in 2013. That’s almost 6 years ago. Back then I only started it because I had just finished university, and I figured it would give me something to do until I got myself a full time job.
Well, fast forward almost 6 years, and I still haven’t got myself a full time job, but I do still have my little corner of the internet. But for the past year, my heart just hasn’t been in it. I’ve tried so many times to write a post. To take some pictures. To get my instagram feed where I want it. But I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I knew I missed it, there was just something not quite working for me.
Which is why I’ve decided to rebrand. To be completely honest, I never really liked the name Lauren the Daydreamer. And for the past few years I’ve really wanted my own name as my blog name. But unfortunately, I have a pretty common name, and the domain url had been taken a long time ago. So on I went with Lauren the Daydreamer. Until last week when I decided screw it. And from that, Lauren R. was born.
I’m going to try to put a lot less pressure on myself with my blog from now on. I’m going to stop comparing myself to my favourite bloggers, I’m going to stop wishing I had their pictures, or that I lived in London where there are so many more opportunities. Instead I am going to make the most of what I have. I’m going to explore my local area, and taking pictures in my bedroom, and writing about the silly things that pop into my head.
