Hey guys, thank you for reading!
You may notice that it has been a few months since I have last posted on my blog, 4 months or so. I’m not proud of this! I set myself a goal to publish a post a week, and as time slipped by it got too easy to make excuses and put off my commitment to myself.
I got a part time job in New Look at the beginning of April, which has slowly consumed my life! I don’t have a set timetable, every week I do different shifts and hours, which really prevents me from planning my time. Of course, this is no excuse for my lack of commitment, but nonetheless it’s a factor.
Another issue I’m finding difficulty with my blog is, what is my “WHY?” Where do I want to take this blog, what should my focus be? There are many things I love, or am interested in, such as beauty, fashion, business and exercise. Thrown all together though, do they make sense? Should I build a brand around just one, or two of the options? I am guilty of over thinking this, and over thinking has lead to lack of action.
I have recently picked up a load of books regarding business building, personal branding, and others along the same line. I roughly read a book per week, sometimes more, so a logical next step for me would be reviewing these books, pointing out the biggest, most important lessons and what I have learnt from each book. This can become a series, which will help me get into a blogging habit, before I decide to branch out and talk about other things that interest me.
Blogging is hard. Putting yourself out there is difficult, and that’s still something I’m not 100% comfortable with. It’s something that I hope will become easier with time, and I’ll just push through it until I get comfortable.
I hope you can understand my absence, and hey, if you have any tips on how to find inspiration, or any tips at all, leave them in the comments section or get in touch!
Thank you for reading, until next time 😀
