You might have noticed the blog has a new look…
You might have noticed that I’ve been M.I.A since October…
People change all the time and I guess life changed even more so once I knew I had a permanent job in an environment I love and with more responsibility.
There are a few of reasons why I stopped blogging for a while:
- When you live in front of a screen for around 10 hours a day and glued to your phone, the last thing I wanted to do was to drag my laptop out and come up with engaging content.
- Admittedly I’ve felt tired, stressed and I’m still trying to get the right kind of work-life balance but I didn’t want to come across as an ungrateful so-and-so in my blog posts, or a complete misery-guts for one!
- My blog started off as a uni project and then grew into a diary I guess, documenting my life to where I am today and everything I went through to get to this point.
I kind of want to start afresh with the blog without creating a new one completely, it’s still very much Essex & The City.
While I’d love the time to be able to incorporate video etc into my blog (the world and I are soooo not ready for my incoherent ramblings) monetising has never been something I’ve wanted to do with it.
I know it’s important to move forward with the times but for me, blogging is something I enjoy, something that’s almost therapeutic and if people enjoy reading what I write, that’s even better. I’m not going to try and plunge into the rat-race that is the blogosphere.
I’m hoping the site looks a little cleaner and I’ve been lucky enough to learn so much in the past six months in terms of social media, picture editing and stats.
Remember how I always speak about life is made up of little chapters? Well, I think I’m on to a new book…
