Google, play “It’s about damn time”, by Lizzo because I’m back, baby! After 2 whole years. That’s right. We are gonna give it another shot. Filled with new experiences, dreams and a whole lotta anxiety. But we’re gonna do it anyway.
So, what have I been up to?
In all honesty, I’ve been up to whole lot and yet at the same time a whole lot of nothing. How does that work? You ask. Well, I can honestly say that I’ve experienced a lot and I was very busy. Because when the world shut down in 2020, it was exactly at that moment that I started my new job. And baby… It was a roller coaster from then on. I will not go into full detail about it, but a lot occurred after one another. Great things and just things that still give me full on panic attacks. Yet, a lot of the things that I experienced the past 2 years were not in alignment with my authentic self nor who I aspire to become. When you spend two years doing a lot of things that are not in alignment with your vision of yourself, you’ve basically just been doing a whole lot of nothing. I’m not gonna say I’ve wasted time, because that ain’t true either. As a matter of fact, I’m very grateful. These two years were necessary for me to experience in order to do better for myself.
And now after 2 whole years, I am back again. Because one thing about me: I’m resilient, darling.
What can you expect from me?
I am gonna be very real on this one. Just because I’m back blogging again, doesn’t mean I’m gonna be posting 2-3 times a week. Hell, possibly not even weekly. The algorithm is shit and the whole ‘you gotta post this often to get views/clicks/likes’ is just triggering. I can’t do that. Yet. Maybe one day I will, but for now, I aspire to post at least twice a month. If it happens more often, great. If it happens less…Well, then it is what it is.
I started blogging, because I love sharing my findings. I love sharing the things I see online or on TV or things I read about in books. But it has to stay fun for me. Also like I mentioned before, setting fixed dates to post is just giving me anxiety. Because, god forbid I fail to post on the day I had set.
No fixed dates = no expectations = no sense of failure towards myself.
I swear, the Joey of two years ago would smite current Joey for even setting the bar so low for myself. But for now, let’s call this a form of self-care.
What will I be posting about?
I really started this blog with the focus on fashion and motivation. But I realized, I really wanna share anything that can make you look good, feel good and be great. So, that means basically anything that I am eager to share. From coffee recipes that I’ve been cooking up in my little cuisine, to the books I’ve started reading and the lessons I learned from them, to even a little retail therapy haul.
I guess you could say I don’t have a niche. To the horror of many marketing experts. But that’s just because I’m a multipotentialite. And it’s terrifying, because all I read and hear about are: ‘you gotta have a niche’. And I don’t have one. Or maybe I do, but I don’t know the right term to put myself in the box others desperately need.
And to be honest, all I really want to achieve with my blog is to inspire others to do what they truly desire no matter how scary it is. Because the things we truly desire are on the other side of fear. And since the fear might never leave, we might as well do it anyway.
