The hyper vigilant among you may have noticed a longer than average absence from me here on my blog. I feel like all I’ve been writing this pat year is ‘sorry for the break, I’m back now’ but this time I really needed that break. I talked about my crisis of confidence in this post and that I was planning something new for my YouTube channel. Well, I did that something new and I feel pretty great about it but it has been all consuming. Between that and working full time this past week (which sounds like a total cop out, I realise) I have had very little extra time at all and my blog slipped further and further down my list of priorities. I have been (as my jumper suggests) Out Of Office in a way and yet very much in the office and working hard elsewhere so I hope you’ll forgive me.
I decided to change the direction of my channel and create more vlogs and what I’m going to call ‘casual beauty content’ ..basically less polished and more quick fire is the ultimate goal. I looked around at other people my age succeeding at what I was trying to do and most of them concentrated on vlogs. I’m not a makeup artist (is probably my most spoken sentence online) and so once you take that out of the equation all I have left beauty vlogging-wise is me so if you like me you might like to see a bit more of the real me and less of the me trying to be a YouTuber.. and hopefully that’s what I’m moving towards with the new content.
I think working full time while I started these daily vlogs will actually help me in the long run realise how unproductive I was with my days once I go back to my regular schedule. I’m planning on giving this blog a jump start too but that might be a slower process until that happens.. we’ll just see how much I can do while half watching Game Of Thrones.. were 3 seasons in and I have taken in maybe 50% of what’s going on so far because I’ve been trying to do other things at the same time. I think it was Ron Swanson who said ‘Never half ass two thing when you can whole ass one thing’..he was right of course but I don’t have the luxury to whole ass right now.
But for now, thanks to those of you who have asked me to post, those of you who have supported the change on YouTube and those of you who still come back to read what I write over here, even when it’s drivel x
