I’M BACK- let me explain why I was gone

I’M BACK! I know there are only 21 of you who currently follow me, but I’ll announced it as if I had a million followers. This leads me to the reason I was gone- and why I came back. I created and instagram account for this blog called @bisonsdontblog a while ago. In my head this account was going to gain followers pretty quickly (my castle in the cloud I guess you could call this). By this I don’t mean that I was going to get 1k followers in a week of course, but just two followers in a few days certainly wasn’t ideal. Then I made the big mistake of letting this affect my motivation. I thought that if there weren’t people who saw my artwork-my hardwork- it wasn’t worth it. This was 100% wrong of course. But it took me awhile to figure this out. That’s why I took a break. I needed to create for ME and no one else. I didn’t want art- or this blog- to feel like a chore, like something I needed to do rather than something I WANTED to do ( and enjoy while doing it)

So to anybody going through the same thing I was going through, down below I leave a few quotes and texts that I hope will be helpful:

I really really love this ☺️
