Howdy dear visitors (if there are any audience remaining)! What occurred to running a blog? If only I realized. I have dropped a bit my mojo I consider. Also this digital everyday living has develop into fairly draining – I form of come to feel it additional and a lot more right after virtually three yrs of freelancing and mostly doing work by myself from dwelling. Really do not get me erroneous, I am content, I like what I do. But from time to time I come to feel like it is far too repetitive, it is much too superficial, it is irrelevant, unexciting – did I mention repetitive? Very well even the phrases below grow to be recurring.

From time to time I wallow in memories and uncover it all quite astonishing. Not numerous of you will know, but I researched intercontinental company administration and economics and when I was a university student social media was not a issue nevertheless. I imagine it was the early ages of some pupil networks these as early Fb and some German counterparts that I understood as anyone residing and learning in Austria. Imagining a skilled career in the electronic globe or a lot more exactly in the sphere of social media was just unimaginable. And yet in this article I am, complete time influencer. Oh how I despise the word. I really do. Influencer? As if I am sitting down at home and earning conspiratorial programs on how to affect and seduce you. You know, like acquire this, get that, incorporate more vegetation (ok guilty for the latter at the very least).

I have consciously preferred this ‘career’ route. Do you see how I put the phrase occupation in quotation marks? Yup, due to the fact I normally need to have to encourage myself that this is my task now. That this IS a career at all. Nevertheless I marvel: Is it truly a task? Or am I just fortunate to be using the electronic wave and obtaining discovered my area of interest to make my residing with it? I in some cases are likely to ignore the path that led me to where I am nowadays. Years and many years of non cease running a blog (yes again then I blogged six instances a week) and constant networking on Twitter (people have been the years). And all of this I did for yrs in a row even though also acquiring a complete time occupation in PR and marketing and advertising companies (with all the glamour of piling surplus hrs and shoddy pay back). People were being times where I would get started functioning at 9 am and complete at household at a person or two am. Likely to bed, waking up, and doing all of it all over again the up coming working day. For many years and decades. And then I bit by bit managed to make my weblog, my social media presence, establish a group of plant lovers, write 1 book , then a further, work on design and styling tasks, give lectures, host courses and so on. And now I am a freelancer. Entire time ‘influencer’. Whole time operating from residence. Full time pondering if this is definitely related and fulfilling. Heaps of whole below. Repetitive and recurring.

I just reread my final paragraph and I do get the thought that this could possibly audio a little bit unfavorable or disillusioned. But neither is genuine to be sincere. I am satisfied, I like what I do, I just marvel if this is what I want to do for the following a long time to come. I wrote publications. I did layout jobs. I labored as a speaker and system host. So what is up coming? I do not know myself but I want something new to seem on the horizon. A thing that would challenge me once again and really encourage my creative imagination and understanding. Strike me up if you have suggestions:-)

In the meantime relaxation assured that I am happily sharing what conjures up me and what keeps me going creatively – primarily on Instagram (and of course, I choose the phrase inspirator around influencer). But I want to be way a lot more energetic listed here on the website much too from now on (thanks Holly from Decor8 for consistently reminding me of blogging). It previously feels additional significant producing a lengthier textual content than just a number of lines of an IG caption. And irrespective of whether or not any person is reading this – it will be out there using the electronic wave and whoever surfs by, enjoy the ride and the examine!
