I feel like I've been waiting for this day for the longest and ever since quarantine, it's been that much more of a struggle to stay consistently uploading posts.
Be that as it may, I've made it a habit to take at least 1-2 months off blogging every year around this time just to recharge my creative batteries and give myself a bit of a breather. For me, it's necessary to prevent burn out.
What I'm hoping to have happened upon my return is that quarantine and isolation would be over, COVID-19 would be a thing of the past and life would have normalized once more. I try to do something with the blog on every one of these breaks; either change the template, add/remove a label or switch designs. I'm not entirely sure what I'll be doing this time but I think I'm getting to the point where I want whatever changes I make this time to be more permanent. I am looking into maybe getting a Newsletter and fresh new template but I guess we'll see how it goes. I want to take the time to brainstorm topics for the rest of the year that align with my personal brand more specifically and also perhaps switch/mix up my writing style a little.
For those who are already familiar with My YouTube Channel , I will be taking a break there too after next thursday the 30th of April. I forced myself to start my YouTube journey back in January so I would not talk myself out of it. Now that I've done that, I want to take a break to try and get things in order to come back properly. At the moment, I upload videos once a week on Thursdays and I would like to increase that schedule to twice a week. I already took the initiative to to change my channel art and I'm also working on a new intro/outro as well as get better at editing, making good thumbnails and writing effective tabs. For YouTube, the break will last only one month so I will be back on there in June. I don't want to be gone too long because I'm still so new to the platform unlike blogging.
I will definitely miss writing but right now, I just need to get my head out of the clouds and back in the game. Keep up to date with my videos and please remember to subscribe while you wait for my return. Thank you for staying consistent with me here and I will see you all really soon. Be back before you know it!!
Always Love 💓
