Hello! It’s been a while!
6 weeks to be precise.
But, if you’ve been following me on Twitter (where I’ve still been fairly active!), you’ll know that there is a good reason for that.
Towards the start of February I was unfortunately made redundant. It was the second time in 4 months I had lost my job and I was overwhelmed with the thought that I’d have to start the ordeal of job hunting, interviews and rejection all over again.
Fortunately, I found a new position within a week and started my new job two weeks after losing my previous one! Pretty good going, right?
My new job was a total shift to a completely new industry and way of working. I ultimately was far too physically and emotionally exhausted to even think about blogging. It was sad, because I felt I’d built my own little space on the internet and found my place in the blogging community, and I didn’t want to abandon everything and everyone without warning.
Although it’s been a fair few weeks, and I have noticed the impact of my absence – things seem quieter, less interaction etc – I think it’s done me good to take a step back and reanalyse where I am, where this blog is going and what I plan to do in the future. It’s also been great for me to take a break and focus on the things in my life that needed attention.
However, I now feel the time has come to return and reclaim my little space on the internet, as well as reconnect with the blogging community.
My first post since my break will go live soon!
I’m also heading away for a bit of a holiday next week, so will be making the most of the change in scenery on my Instagram page, so be sure to give me a follow!
I look forward to rejoining you all and I hope you like what’s to come!
