Figuring Out Where I am...

Wednesday 21 October 2015

A month or so ago I was pretty happy with how my blog was going, and how my Youtube channel was going, and then something big changed in my life and since then my 'online' life seems to have ground to a halt. Basically long story short... I got a job. I had been out of work every since I left Benefit back in June(ish), and I had a lot of time on my hands to focus on my blog and my Youtube, which was honestly really great.

Then on the flip side whilst I had an abundance of time, I had no money of my own, and was relying heavily on my boyfriend for the necessities. So I knew it was time to get back into it. I happened across an advert for a job at GAME head Office in Basingstoke, for a three month contract over the Christmas period. Which I thought was perfect, because it would give me some money over one of the busiest times of the year, and it would also give me time to figure out my next move without the commitment of knowing that I have to work there for the foreseeable future.

So I started working there a month or so ago, and honestly, I am really enjoying it. It's such a great company to work for, and it's great to be surrounded by video games and gamers all day long. Since starting my job I have played video games 80% more than I used to. I've finished a couple of video games, and I am even getting back into the habit of pre-ordering the games that I am excited to play! Whilst I am enjoying my time, I am well aware that everything else is suffering because of it...

I want to get back on track with my blog, and making Youtube videos so much, but every time I sit down to plan something, or write, nothing seems to come out. So I want to set myself some goals for the next month and see if I can improve anything!

  1. Make ONE Youtube Video a week: this will be the same schedule that I was following before, and will get me back into the swing of things without pressuring me to do too much too soon.
  2. Write TWO blogposts a week: I was getting into the habit or writing a blogpost a day, which was good, but it's just not a realistic with my new schedule, so I think two a week should be manageable.
So we'll have to see what happens over the next few weeks... Hopefully I'll find a way to fit my blog into my life again.
