An Idea


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Once upon a time this blog was a hub and hive of activity. I would be super excited to plan and write my posts and spent a lot of time on the photography for each article. I poured myself into it. 

As Sprinkle of Glitter Ltd has evolved, some projects have taken more of my time and some have had to be cut back on. Sadly, my blog has been in the 'cut back on' pile and things like books (writing, promoting, book touring), youtube channels, live tours and clothing lines (I realise I sound like an obnoxious twit but it is what it is) have consumed a lot more of my energy. 

I call this place my 'sunset spot' because my favourite time to visit is as the sun is going down and everything feels super peaceful. 

I've tried quite hard to keep up with this slice of web but feel like I never do find my full footing and it slips away. So, I've had an idea. 

Life this month is about to get really, really cray. I mean it. Whirlwind crazy. I'm already looking forward to a rest in November!

What I thought I might do is use this blog as a diary. Just as an experiment, just for a month. 

I'm not sure if this is entirely unprofessional (I've always maintained that this blog is not a diary but a highlights reel of special moments or things that interest me) or completely genius (why not use it as a space for my day to day ramblings and document the good as well as the bad?). We'll see. 

I might throw in a bit of original photography if I'm able but mostly I think I'll just lift it from my other social media like instagram or twitter and see how I go. I'm giving it a completely no pressure approach. If I fail, I fail. Chances of this are high. 

If I succeed, it's a celebratory chinese takeout for actually sticking at something throughout what is set to be the busiest month of the year so far. 

I hope you like this idea. I'm not going to promote it at the start so if you're reading this- thank you for being such a loyal blog reader and I hope you will handle me gently as I go for this little challenge!!

See you....tomorrow??

Toodlepip! xx

  2. This seems like such a good idea! I love your blog posts so much because they sound like you (if that makes sense). I hate reading other bloggers' posts that are almost too polished and have no personality. Good luck Louise :)

  10. This is a brilliant idea! I love when blogs are more personal and just a record of everyday thoughts, it feels a lot more like getting to know someone than reading polished editorial content. Good luck!

  16. I love the idea! You should do whatever feels good for you- if you're comfortable sharing your thoughts people would definitely be up to listen. Don't feel pressure to reveal more/less of yourself than you'd like, this space is ultimately yours to do with what you will!

  25. Blogtober!! I think this is a great idea. I was scared you were gonna tell us that you wouldn't be writing blog posts anymore... If I could offer you some unsolicited advice, I'd just say don't feel too much pressure to write everyday, weekly diary updates or every couple of days are great too. Looking forward to it!

  26. I'm super excited for you Louise and there is no pressure if things don't work out. I'l be behind you 100%. Also I think it may be good to show the good and the bad of life sometimes as we are not all perfect and sometimes the bad things need a mention to show we are all just human at the end of the day. Big love, Katy Summers xx

  55. It's a shame considering it's this blog that got you where you are today!
    Did it occur to you not everyone wants to watch Youtube? I can't stand it - I'd rather read a proper written article. People who are at work, or on the train can't really listen out loud to something on youtube either. My feed through Bloglovin is my print magazine now - it's what I prefer to engage with.

    But you've obviously chosen the most lucrative endeavours for yourself and your family and I guess the written word on your blog is lower on the list.
    Disappointed.

  63. A broken heart can be one of the most painful things to heal from and can take a very long time to heal. During these times it can feel like the whole world could light up in flames and it still couldn't compare to the pain inside.

    Of course, admitting a broken heart can be a difficult thing to do and most of us try to continue on with life masking the pain in our heart. With this pain comes many emotions. I was also trying to masked my pain, until i found help, here is my story.

    My wife and I separated 4 months ago and our children, Emily and Robert, live with her but see me every weekend. I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet called Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack who help people with their relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contacted him, he helped me cast a spell and within 48hours my wife came back to me and started apologizing, now she has stopped going out with men and she is with me for good and for real. you can Contact on { nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com }. If you are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back your husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend. contact Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack, E-mail:{ Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com } Thank you so much Sir Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack, i will always be testifying about your good work.

  64. Louise, you're an amazing person and you bring so much positivity and happiness into my life. I just wanted to say that you're an inspiration to us younger girls. You'll probably never read this but, on the chance you do, I just wanted to say thank you. <3 xoxo
