Hey y’all! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I didn’t really do much except for running some errands and shopped online at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. By the way, if you haven’t checked out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, you are definitely missing out because those sales are so good! At first, I thought it was a bunch a hype but when I checked it out for myself, those sales are the truth! Whenever you get some down time, please check it out. Some merchandise has already sold out, but there are still a lot of great items left. You can shop the anniversary sale now until August 30th.
Anyhow, I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings on why I’m strongly considering Becoming A full-time blogger. This was not an all of a sudden decision. I’ve actually been thinking about this for a little over a year and I just haven’t said anything until now. I know becoming a full-time blogger is a lot of hard work and dedication and I’m all for it. There are several friends I have that are blogging full-time and absolutely love it. I can just see it for myself, waking up doing what I love everyday and being my own boss!
Just like everyone else in this country, I’ve had my fair share in working for horrible companies. You know the ones with 1-star rating and the negative reviews on Glassdoor or Indeed with the company believing they are top-notch despite that. Also the ones that are like public door knobs with the high turnover rates hoping you’re not smart enough to do your own research. Let’s be honest, who wants to get up everyday to work for a company under those conditions and working for someone else on top of that. My mental health is the most important thing to me for sure, especially during this current pandemic we are in. I have this strong desire in my soul to do something that I have a passion for and that is blogging.
In case you didn’t know, I’ve been writing since I was 8 years old. Writing has always been like second nature to me and became very therapeutic to some degree. It wasn’t until I was an adult I started writing more about fashion and beauty. If I decide to go full-time blogging, it would be great because not only that I would be working for myself, but I get to write about something I love which is fashion!
There are a few things to keep in mind when deciding to become a full-time blogger. I was given this knowledge from a few of my good friends that are already experienced in the field, which I would like to share in case you’re thinking about it:
Now I know this is something that isn’t going to happen overnight because this would be big career jump for me. It would take a lot of planning and reseaching but I’m here for it. If I give it a try and doesn’t work out for me, at least I still have my Psychology degree to fall back on for support. Again this is not something I decided as of yet, but I’m only expressing my feelings and thoughts. I will definitely keep you guys updated.
Have you ever thought about becoming a full-time blogger? or are you already blogging full-time? If so how are you liking it? I want to know so definitely comment below.
