How many people noticed I changed the look of the blog? Anybody? Yayyyy, I see a hand back there! Hiiiiii! *In Jenifa’s voice* ‘How is you?’ Good, good!
When I first decided to start blogging, I wasn’t really sure what direction I wanted the blog to go. I only knew what I loved to write and speak about, and what I wanted my readers to feel – more knowledgeable, entertained, but mostly inspired. For the longest time, I postponed starting a blog—I spent almost three years procrastinating. I was afraid of getting stuck and running out of things to write about. As a matter of fact, in 2014, I opened a WordPress account but only wrote as far as the introductory post. Please don’t laugh.
I decided to try again in November of last year. I did my research and asked questions, but when I started, I realised that, omo, I didn’t ask enough questions! So now, after better research and a ton of Etisalat data later, my vision for the blog is much clearer; not fully so, but certainly clearer than before. I want to take this much more seriously. I know it might not make sense that I’m saying all these after already being a blogger for two months. Ha! It’s out there, people. I’m a blogger! Say whaaaaattt?!! *dance break* Anyway, back to what I was saying—it might not make sense, my saying this now. I’m not even sure why I feel the need to share but I guess that’s one essence of a blog—a public online journal to document thoughts and lessons learned while doing this thing called living, innit?
Also, I think I’ve been putting so much pressure on myself to always write overly thought-out posts like the ones I’ve previously published here (if you’ve not read them, you’re sleeping on a moving train mehn!). So, my plan now is not to deviate too far from my main niche (lifestyle and inspiration), but also to add other sprinkles of goodness here and there. For your benefit, of course. Always.
Peace out and keezzeezz,
