Reading Time: 13 minutes
It’s been a while since I showed up on here… It would be easy for me to say “oh I’ve been so busy, I couldn’t find the time to write!” … but that wouldn’t be the full story. The truth is that when I launched my blog a few months ago I planned ahead and put together this big list of things I could write about. It gave me a sense of direction, and it felt great! But as the weeks went by I slowly realised that all the posts I’d planned to write were losing relevance — or weren’t relevant just yet. And instead of acknowledging the problem and finding a solution, I just stared at my list for weeks and hoped that I could still make these ideas work — except it never felt right.
I love writing these blog posts, but it’s important for me to believe in what I’m writing and feel excited about it. So earlier this week I finally sat down at my desk, scrapped my content calendar and started afresh — and I feel so much better for it. To me this is a good reminder that it’s okay to change course ; as creatives posting our work online, we’re often told that consistency is key, but if something doesn’t feel right… it’s okay to pause for a second, take a step back and readjust your plans if needed.
