Since entering 2020, i have found it unbelievably hard to motivate myself with my blog again. I took a little break after the New Year and then that was it, any momentum i had built up beforehand was gone.
I decided i wouldn’t put a lot of pressure on myself to get back to it; although i am planning on eventually, hopefully, doubling my income using my blog, i don’t want to pressure myself too much.
I’ve written off January as a test month. A month to get all my laziness out, to think about the next year and just have some time for me. Of course, it took me until the tail-end of January to stop feeling guilty about being lazy but what ya gonna do?
I started my new job properly in January, and so wanted to make sure that most of my creativity and energy was going into that. I just think it’s quite important to get off on the right foot with a new job and finding a routine again after not really having one for 6 months was something i definitely needed time to fall into.
So far, it’s been the best thing that’s happened to me in a long time. This is what i’ve been waiting for; the role i dreamed of during the worst moments last year! I could not feel further from my 2019 self and for that i’m so thankful.
So, in February, i want to make the most of my situation. I work part-time, my commute is less than 15 minutes. I would be crazy to not work my butt off every day that i can!
This is just a short post from me to ease me back into writing again. With blogging, i find i always come back to it. Writing is what kept me sane for most of last year, and i still love coming back to this space and just dumping everything that’s in my brain.
Like with my instagram, this year i want to strip it right back and take all the pressure off. I’m already seeing a difference with instagram, being more candid and posting actual in-the-moment snaps, so it’s time to apply that to my blog as well.
I’m yet to find out what i enjoy writing about, so there will be a lot of experimenting and maybe some things that don’t go as well as others. But that’s fine. I’m looking forward to a chilled year of being happy and doing what i love.
