It’s coming up to the end of the year and today I’m feeling a little reflective. How much have I achieved this year? How far have I come? The questions keep coming but the answers, there are none. I can’t think of what I’ve achieved or done but the one thing I am really proud of is how my blog has grown. It’s gone from strength to strength. Slow steady growth at a pace that I’m able to handle. Next month I find out whether the funding for my job is being cut and if I’m left unemployed I want to use a lot of the time I have to put towards my blog.
The problem that I’m faced with at the moment however, is that I’m currently feeling so uninspired. There’s a big difference between unmotivated and uninspired. I want to write, I want to create content but I don’t want to just blend into the abyss of bloggers “trying to make it”.
I just know that I need to move against the grain in a different direction. Now to figure out which way that is.
I’m considering slowing down on product reviews because I enjoy them the least. I mean they’re probably the easiest to write up but I want to tread the path that is the least walked upon. The one lined with the bodies of those who gave up and lost hope. I don’t want to be a generic blogger anymore. I want to tell stories and inspire through creativity.
The whole reason I started blogging was to explore a creative outlet and that’s exactly what I plan to do.
I’m not sure whether I’m giving myself enough time but by the beginning of next year I’m hoping to have taken my blog to a different stage. I love reading lifestyle blogs, reading people’s thoughts and getting an insight into what they’re about. I think it’s finally time I opened up, tear down those walls and give you all a little piece of me.
