It’s been 6 months since my last blog post.
It’s so weird to me say that. Blogging has been pushed aside in my life for multiple reasons that I will outline here.
It really hit me the other day when I was talking with my friend and she said “I used to get notifications when you posted but I don’t anymore” and I had to admit to her that she would still get notifications, I had just stopped posting.
I’ve had multiple friends ask me over the last 6 months “How’s your blog doing?” to which I would have to state that I was just taking a break and not sure if I was going to do it anymore.
In simplest terms, I fell out of love with blogging.
Ideas stopped coming to me, and when I did write something, I wouldn’t want to post it because it didn’t fit with my niche, or it wasn’t quality. I want to proudly tell people that I write a blog and give out the URL without fear of them judging how bad my content is. Therefore, I only want to put out the best.
There’s a few pieces of advice that I had read when I first started blogging, one of them was that you needed to pick a niche from the beginning and try to keep to it. The other was to be business minded from the beginning, and operate your blog like a business . This is where the wheels fell off for me. I’ve always like writing, but I had a difficult time coming up with ideas of what to write about when I felt constricted to a specific niche and trying to write like a professional. Looking back on my old posts, I don’t think that any of them hit the mark, I was just trying to come up with something.
So I have decided to give myself the freedom to write about whatever I want to write about. I no longer am going to fit into a specific niche. I also am not going to pretend to be a business professional, my blog is mine so I’m going to start writing for myself. I sincerely hope that others enjoy what I write and that they will come along for the ride, but I want to make sure that I can write about anything I want, and that at the end of the day I’m proud of what I’ve written.
So there it is. I named this blog The Evolving Endeavor because I thought that it would change. As I get older and as I have new life experiences, it will change. This is another change for the blog and I am really hoping that it will be a positive one.
In the last 6 months a lot has happened. But the biggest one is that I am a University Graduate! Woohoo!! I’m finally done with school! Which brings on the question, what’s next?
I don’t know.
I know what I don’t want, I don’t want to work a 9-5. Husband does shift work that has him switching between days and nights. If I worked a normal schedule Husband and I wouldn’t see each other that much. I like hanging out with him so I’m not going to do that. Instead I’m going to give myself the freedom to try out some dreams and see which I actually like and what isn’t for me. I’ll give some more insight into what exactly that looks like in later posts, but right now all you need to know is that I’m excited. There are so many new opportunities waiting for me and I can’t wait to try them out.
