The blog days are over.


I uploaded SIX blog posts throughout the WHOLE of 2018. Six. 
If I need anything to prove that blogging isn’t for me anymore, it’s that. 

2018 was a fairly busy year for me, but I wasn’t so busy that I couldn't post at least once a month. Like I said in my last post, I’ve been feeling quite positive this year and I want to focus on things that I’m passionate about and blogging is no longer a passion of mine.  

I started blogging on and off around 10 years ago and this is my third go at it. I started Maya Not Mya as I love writing and photography, so having this platform felt right at the time, but it doesn't anymore. I've taken several breaks from my blog hoping that I would return with a newfound love for it, but I never did.

I cared a lot about what I was writing, but it felt like I was writing to blog rather than writing to write if that makes sense. I want to get better at writing and do it more regularly, but I don't feel this is the best way for me to do that.

Interacting with other blogs is another thing that really put me off blogging, which I know sounds bad but I found it to be such a chore. I was reading - skim reading to be totally honest - blogs and commenting in the hopes that they would comment back on my blog and once I realised that, I knew it was time for me to stop. 
Of course, I wanted people to engage with my blog, but I never wanted to be focused on the numbers.

I was going to delete my blog completely, but I know I would've regretted it as I'm proud of the content I have put out, so I'll leave it up as an archive. (And who knows, I might return one day.)

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read and comment on my blog.
Hopefully you found something useful or at least got a laugh; if you didn’t get shit from it, then soz mate #ITried

You’ll still find me over on Instagram and using way too many GIFs on Twitter :)

Positive energy is powerful.


It really is.

I wouldn't say that I'm a pessimist, but I wouldn’t say I was the most positive person in the world either. I've always felt as if I'm not as ahead in life as I should be and have wasted a lot of time not being productive enough.

5 things I loved about Sri Lanka


When I was researching my trip to Sri Lanka, every post I read seemed to be overwhelmingly positive and whilst I agree that it is an amazing place and one you should definitely visit, there were some things I didn't like about it and wanted to share.
