After weeks of consideration and reflection, I decided to start a new site. I already have a blog. Right on my website. But having that blog space on my coaching site never really did it for me. There are so many things that I want to talk about that are not 100% work-related. Even though having everything in one place seemed like an excellent idea at first, It felt somewhat limiting. I ended up never using that blog space in the end. A waste, really.
Days of agonizing over the fonts and layout later, as you do when you start a new site, here it is. Brand new space to write about whatever I want. My prediction? This blog will probably end up with work, career or business-related posts anyway, just not the pristine, pampered versions that I instinctively want to put on the work site. When you are running away from something, it always tends to catch up with you in bizarre ways.
I want to outline my general plan for this blog. It’s good to have a plan, and it always seems more real when it’s in writing. I will post:
- Essays that I completed for my MBA studies. I just enrolled and completed my first module. It’s quite an interesting programme. Every week I had to research and write 1-3 essays on anything and everything from team management to driving change. From what I hear, it’s similar across all the modules. I really enjoy putting together those texts, so I want to publish en edited versions of them here.
- Pieces on career development. I am a CV writer and career coach, and I always have a hundred different career-related things on my mind. Interestingly, when I talk to my clients, friends and random other people, there are always themes that emerge. I want to tackle those, dissect them, and put them somewhere in writing. This place will be perfect for that.
- Bits of my life as it happens. Do you have those moments when you are really excited about something and want to talk about it and share it, but then you told everyone, and you still have the need to spread the word but no one else to talk to? No? Just me? Sometimes, when my brain is overdrive, I wish for space where I can share those bits and pieces. This will also be a place for me to let that out.
Let’s see how it al works out.
Have a lovely one!
