Writing, or the Future of this Blog

Ever since I opened up my clothing shop around this time last year (congratulations to me for making it to a year) I’ve barely written a word. Only texts for my shop and maybe two unfinished short stories. I stopped writing for this blog because a) time and b) I felt like no one was reading blogs anymore anyways. Not much has changed since then, but I have missed blogging. And if nothing else, my blog helped me establish a consistent writing practice. Nothing has helped me write as consistently as NaNoWriMo and my blog.

So, I’m going to start again.

I have no plan. I don’t know what direction I’m going to go in. (As usual) All I know is that I want to write more. Write better. Write consistently. And maybe someday it’ll go somewhere. Or maybe it’ll be a hot mess. Who knows, it doesn’t matter.

It’s going to be an experiment, as this blog has always been. I invite you to take it with me.

My blog in 2017

To the one or two people who might still look at this blog, my apologies for not posting for so long. Between my bachelor’s thesis and another major writing project last year, I’m afraid I have completely forgotten about this blog. I mean to get more into blogging again this year.

I have just finished my study. I’m currently looking for a job. Ideally, I would like to do something with writing. “Specialist journalism” as our career officer called it. To write for something like a book or music or fashion magazine/blog. For that I would need to polish up my non-fiction writing skills. So now is the perfect time to get back into blogging!

I’m still figuring out what exactly I will post on this blog. Lifestyle and fashion related things I love writing about. I’m also trying to write more reviews about books I read, shows I go to, and other media I consume. Maybe some personal musings. We’ll see, we’ll see.

Layout and sidebar information I will overhaul at some point. The banner I have now was only supposed to be temporarily, but it’s been up for as long as I can remember. So much work ahead of me. Better get started.
