Are you ready for this long post? I finally got my shit together.
Let’s start with the beginning. When I told you I needed sometime to find a balance in all this, I still worked at the restaurant. That took 2 weeks. I quitted that job for two reasons. I do not see a future there, and it felt more like a torture to work there.
Reason two, my other job as an editor and brand manger is going so well. I also got a few new chances there. Like working on a real magazine, doing the branding of that magazine and the social media, plus all other creative things I like. All I want is a job here after my internship is finished.
I took quite some time to find a balance. I did not want to rush back to blogging. I wanted to be ready. I wanted my fingers to itch and my brain to tickle with creativity. Which it did, almost every day. Looking at things from a distance is necessary sometimes.
I know now I want to keep my blog going, for as long as possible. I barely look at the numbers anymore. I stared this as a creative outlet, and still want it to be like that. I am doing this for me. I enjoy updating, I enjoy taking beautiful photo’s, I enjoy showing behind the scene’s shot, I enjoy sharing my writing and I enjoy letting know what I wore.
Where The life of Joy is going? Who knows. I just have some plans for it and we’ll see how it goes. I really, REALLY, want to work on videos. Even though I am not sure what kind of video’s. But I am working on it. I also want The life of Joy to be more like a diary. This means I will bring my camera everywhere I go. It will be like you are reading a page from my own diary. Together with intimate photo’s
Last but not least. I am also getting a new Macbook. This one I got is getting slow, I defiantly need a quicker one for work and y blog/photography.
Like I said before, I am doing this for me. I care about my little piece of the internet. I also love to go back the older pages and see what I was doing back then. I don’t know if I ever could quit. But now that I finally got my shit together, I will be posting on a regular basis. What do you think about the new plans? And did you think I did a good job taking a break and finding the balance?
