I’d be lying if I said I was a prolific blogger; I used to be, but life changed and so did my priorities. That said, I love having a platform where I can express myself in the way that I feel most comfortable. With words.
I started this blog because I missed writing, I missed cooking and I missed being able to put my work ‘out there’, whatever it might be. So, I wanted to incentivise myself to get out there and do it! However, I find myself writing more about how I feel than my favourite banana bread recipe, but that’s okay and that’s why blogging is so bloody brilliant.
My blog allows me to have a voice. In (my) world where I feel unheard or misunderstood, here I can have my say. It might stay unread (or in some cases, unpublished) but my thoughts are there in text and out of my head, as ‘therapy’ for myself or simply to document moments in my life.
I suppose this brings me to my blogging goals, really. Which makes me laugh because it sounds quite pretentious (coming from me anyway).
I suppose I’m fulfilling my ultimate goal just by writing. It’s doing just what I wanted it to do…it’s given me a platform to share my thoughts and my favourite things. However, I’d love to be able to help others in some way. Maybe writing for charities or raising awareness for important issues that I feel passionate about.
I’d also like to start working hard on recipe development and really improve my photography. In an ideal world, I would love to work from home, run my own business and actually earn from my skills, doing something I love. There’s no such thing as an ideal world but it doesn’t mean we can’t try to get as close to it as possible.
Only I can make my dreams a reality so I am going to work bloody hard to do just that!
