A Fresh Start

Hello 2021! I think it's safe to say that last year was the worst. I think it's probably also safe to say that (so far) this year doesn't seem to be going much better. And while the vaccines are certainly a bright light at the end of the tunnel, there's still a whole load of tunnel to go. This is such a bleak way to start my first post of 2021, but I've never been much of an optimist.

Having said that, I do think the first week of a new year is the perfect time for optimism, especially this year, when optimism is so desperately needed.

Usually, this is the time of year that I write a laundry list of all the things I want to achieve or change about myself, but after the year we've had I'm just thrilled to still be here, warts and all. Maybe 2021 will be the year I finally accept myself as I am, who knows? 

This year, I only really have one goal - to spend more time on my blog. I'm aiming to finally, FINALLY get myself into a decent blogging routine. Despite blogging for almost eight years (!) I've never managed to get myself into a good routine with it, which is really weird because I tend to be quite organised when it comes to my actual work. I think my biggest problem is that even though blogging is very much a viable career option, it's not something I've ever seriously considered for myself, and because of that I haven't put as much effort into it as I perhaps should have.

But all that's about to change! I'm planning on a complete redesign although this will probably take some time, definitely more than I'm anticipating anyway. I'm also thinking of rebranding and I even have a content strategy in place. Check me out!

Now if you've followed me for a while you'll probably be thinking: "Yeah, we've heard this before", and to be fair you definitely have. But 2021 feels like a turning point for me. Like a lot of people, I lost my job last year due to the pandemic and found myself in the strange position where I've had more time on my hands to do the things I want to do, and absolutely no motivation to do them. But with the new year has come a ton of motivation and now feels like the time to try and create something I'm excited about and proud of.

Watch this space! 

What are you planning for 2021?
