I don't plan on going anywhere.

Yikes. I haven't spoken to you guys in a long time.

It's quite obvious that I've been away for my blog for quite some time. I'm not going to lie to you guys, there's no excuse. I just didn't want to blog anymore. After finding a passion for vlogging, I put all my energy into that and it was going so well until I got my job. "There's no time for blogging or vlogging" is what I told myself as I threw myself into my new job role.

I love my job because I know I'm truly making a difference with young people and because of this my vlog/blog days have taken a backseat. Just because it's now 2019 doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about this before. I needed to take an unintentional break and I had to make sure that I didn't come back for the sake of coming back. I wanted time off to get to grips with what I do day-to-day in the workplace. I wanted to make a good impression and start strong at my new job. 3 months later, I've done what I needed to do and once the Christmas break came around, I took my well-earned break from work. This is when I thought about my blog, my YouTube channel and debated with myself about if I wanted to continue it or not.

I have done blogging for 3 years and personally, I thought that was enough. You don't hear much from bloggers lately and due to the nature of YouTube growing so fast I thought that leaving my blogging days behind me to pursue vlogging properly would be the best decision for me. But I was wrong. I forgot that writing was what prompted me to start YouTube. I love to talk, share advice and pass on little words of wisdom. I wanted a visual platform to do that and YouTube was there looking at me. Plus I had a few people telling me that I should do YouTube and well congrats guys I finally did it.

In regards to blogging, I'll never stop. I don't think I can. I love it too much and just because I don't post as often doesn't mean that I'm not taking my time in order to create content for you. I'm a chill blogger. I do this because I love it. I have no plans of trying to get paid on here or to do sponsored posts. This blog is like my online diary and that's how it'll stay. It's gone through a lot, but I love the way it is right now. It's just missing new and fresh content (which I will work on, I have to promise that now).

Now that I know how my work schedule is, I'll know when to dedicate time to draft up posts and I'm thinking to post on Sunday's as I'm just at home doing nothing so it makes sense. Hopefully, I don't dip as badly as I did. I'm quite excited to start writing again. I have no clue about what I'll be posting but as long as it helps out at least one person that's all that matters to me. Missed you guys, sorry for disappearing but I'm finally in a good place again. Happy New Year.
