Look at the world with a Twisted eye

I got the Blues

Hello everyone or no one,

Where should I start…

As you can see my last post was in January and after that my page went dead. Let’s be honest about it.

I will start at the beginning…

When I fist started blogging at my twistedvi.13 page, I chose the wordpress.com platform. Which in my opinion, is mostly specialized in blogging and creating a community for people with the same  interests. You can follow bloggers and connect with them through wordpress newsletter page it self. So your reach is automatically higher.  Back then, I had a lot of traffic and comments from the people who found out about my blog through wordpress etc. I was happy and proud of twistedvi.13. Even though the quality of my posts weren’t that great, I got a lot of positive comebacks from it. So I figured that I wanted to grow, I wanted my blog to become something more, maybe a webshop in the future, which is my ultimate goal. To be able to provide what I write about, to my readers in the real world. So I created twistedvi.be with a lot the help from Lidoma web and brand developer.   I started to really think about the subjects that I wanted to write about, I read a lot of books like How blogs work from the amazing Stephanie Duval and the creator of 70percentpure, I made investments like buying a better camera, a mac computer, my website theme, my domain… All of that because I have a vision.

I was ready to rock twistedvi.be…

I changed my platform from wordpress.com to wordpress.org because of the freedom I got from wordpress.org.  Lidoma already warned me that this platform needs more maintenance, I need to be active on it, use newsletters, give away’s, make a lot of publicity on social media to get the interest of the readers. I am just a small baby fish in this huge ocean, but I thought I can do this.

I found it very difficult to get the attention of the blog readers. So every time I wrote, I wanted to write about something better. But after a while of working my ass of, I saw that my bounce rate was still high and I didn’t get a lot of traffic… Everybody around me knew about my blog and when I showed them my page and posts they all were amazed by it, but the traffic stayed low and I barely got any comments except the daily spams! My motivation went from 100 to zero… I started doubting about myself. Every time I went somewhere or made a DIY , I took pictures and thought about what I would write about it but then again, I also thought why  should I put my effort in this… Nobody will read it anyways.

So I didn’t write anymore…

But every time something exciting would happen to me, I could feel the urge to open my dashboard and write about it. I am a girl with a mountain high pride. I don’t know if this should be on the positive or negative side of my personality. I want to be the best in everything and untill now I mostly was. I got good grades at school, got my master degrees with distinction, I got to design our offices and showroom at Alternativ as the youngest employee. So when I saw that this time I wasn’t the best, I felt like a failure. So I barely opened my page anymore. Every time I typed twistedvi.be on the search bar, my heart skipped a beat. you know the feeling when you get when you open you boyfriends facebook or instagram page… That feeling!

Then I realized something…


I realized that I still LOVE this page. I am sharing my passion on this page. This is connected to the world. Isn’t that amazing? I am writing for the world but what I forgot was that in the first place, I am writing for my self. Call it a hobby, a passion, a diary, a blog …

So I am back.

I don’t know if I will write once or twice a week, but I will write. Maybe this will grow and maybe not but I will grow through this.

So if you are reading this thank you for your time and you are welcome to step by whenever you feel like it 🙂
