It’s been about two weeks since I’ve been back in my little corner of the internet, and I’m happy to say not much has changed… yet…
Since I’ve been back in Vancouver, I’ve been thinking about this blog a lot. About how it’s evolved over the past year, where I see it going in the future, and how it has impacted my life.
I originally started this blog to document my six-months of travel and as a journal to record and reflect on my continued journey for my elusive “what“. As to be expected, things have changed over time and because of that, I am starting to find a new voice.
In the blogging world you often hear about “Finding Your Voice” or “Finding Your Niche”, and what it basically means is this: do things your own way. Separating yourself from the pack and offering something that is 100% unequivocally and irrevocably you, which often feels overwhelming. Especially with the copious amount of blogs and bloggers out there.
Despite one of my favourite quotes being, “Comparison is the thief of joy”, often times I can’t help but compare myself to others in the real world, as well as in the blogging world. I am only human.
For example, the blogger voice inside my head sometimes sounds like this:
“Ugh. I was just about to do a post on that but now someone else has so… I guess I need to think of something different”.
“Am I posting enough? (Insert blogger here) posts five days a week. If I only post three, is it even worth it?”
“My photos don’t look professional enough compared to hers. Why do I even bother!?”
“Damnit, I forgot to take a photo of my morning coffee and post it to Instagram. No one will ever take me seriously as a blogger!”
Okay, the last one is just for fun, but really, am I the only one that thinks the coffee shots need to end?!
Moving forward, I plan on continuing to talk about the things I have always have: travel, fashion and beauty, and throwing in a few more personal posts like this one. Ones that come straight from my heart.
A lot has happened in the past year, and I want that to be reflected on my blog. From being on the road for six months, to getting engaged, landing a career-oriented job and settling back into life in Vancouver, there’s a lot I want to share and I plan on doing just that.
I’ve created a blogging schedule to keep myself on track and to keep readers informed on what posts are happening when. So without further ado, my posting schedule for November looks like this:
Monday (Travel)- Wednesday (Vancouver/ Personal Post)- Friday (Fashion/ Beauty)
I hope you continue to follow along regularly, but completely understand if I only see you on Monday’s because Travel Posts are what you’re looking for.
Wander Before What has always been about my process of self-discovery, about finding my passion and sharing my interests. I’m excited for the future holds on my little corner of the web because with each passing day and with every new post, I feel closer and closer to discovering my unique voice. I hope we can take the adventure together.
If you’ve ever written, what was your process of ‘finding your voice’?
