I think it is great that you are taking some time off to create a new design for your blog! Indeed, there is always a time to be creative. However, if I could offer you an advice, I hope you would not be too hard on yourself. Whether the people who clicked here stumbled upon your blog accidentally or not, you should not jump right away into conclusion that they are not interested. It is important for you to embrace positivity and to believe in yourself and in your talent. When people see other people who are passionate in what they do, they get inspired. I hope that once you finished the new design for your blog, people will also be inspired by your talent. Best of luck to you!
I'm like "Hey! I made this thing!" or "I'm performing in this thing!" and then I write about it.
