It feels like an absolute age since I last sat down at my desk and fired up my laptop. It feels even weirder because Wordress has updated and I feel like I’m all new with blogging all over again. WordPress Bloggers will feel my pain!
So where have a been? Truthfully, I haven’t really been very far. I’ve been doing and eating a whole load of new things to share with you all, however since I have had so many back to back family/close friend events that I had to put blogging on the back burner.
I fiiiinally hit 10k on Instagram. I actually set myself this impossible task at the beginning of the year and just weeks before the end of it, I got there! I didn’t want to do a huge announcement or a celebration of it because I have a horrible feeling people will just unfollow and I’ll have to start all over again!
My 14-42mm camera lens for my Olympus PEN broke. Not entirely sure how but it just froze and started malfunctioning so now I don’t really have a camera for when I’m out and about. It’s slightly (read INCREDIBLY) annoying but I’m hoping I’ll be able to pick one up in the christmas sales. This does however mean that a lot of upcoming blog photos will be from my iPhone.
I have also decided to go back to the gym. This isn’t me forcing myself, it isn’t anyone saying that I should totally go along with them, it’s literally (finally!) something that I want to do for myself. I’ve had a think about it and I’m going to buy myself membership to a gym near work. I know I won’t go out of my way to gym but if it’s nearby I will definitely consider it. Now just to pluck up the courage and walk in there alone…
Oh and perhaps something pretty big is that I have never wanted to freelance more. We all know that I’ve been toying with the idea for just over a year now and I went part time from my day job to see how things would pan out….and they kind of didn’t. Well not really, I just didn’t have the drive or direction. Now that I’ve got 10k+ on Instagram, it will be much easier to approach and work with brands (or so people say) and I’ve suddenly got the motivation to really just go for it. Plus now that most people I know IRL know that I blog it’s been free-ing and I want to see whether 2019 is the year I can perhaps earn some money from my blog.
I guess what I’m trying to say is – Hi, I’m back! Look out for new and (hopefully) very regular content from me. I hope that you’ll stick around and if you don’t already, please do follow me over on Instagram!
