Well it has been a while since I gave you all a proper life update hasn’t it? The last couple of months have been pretty crazy for me. I mean, I’ve had a lot of downtime from work, but it hasn’t been ‘sit down and relax at home’ kind of downtime – I’ve been on a few trips, both in and out of the country, and just trying to get things done. The blog, admittedly, has been a little neglected in that time.
I’m planning on doing a major overhaul of the blog, with a new name, new design and more organised focus. Just waiting for the funds if I’m being completely honest – with all the trips I’ve been on, I’m a little skint right now! The thing is, I know where I want to go with this blog but I’ve been struggling to get it down in words.
The Blogger’s Epiphany
I was out doing a long run and listening to a few podcasts on my travels. I’d stumbled upon Lucy’s podcast earlier in the week and figured I’d listen to a couple on my way round. It was the one with Monica from The Travel Hack and I just had an epiphany whilst running. That’s the beauty of it – your mind wanders and you can think of all sorts, coming up with so many ideas. It gave me that much needed clarity and helped me to figure out what I really want.
My interests lie heavily with running, fitness/health, and exploring new places. That’s my passion. I want to seek new adventures, find new things and keep fit whilst I’m at it. And I want to share that with you.
What To Expect
I’ve already been writing about this stuff a lot anyway, so you won’t see a massive change in the content of the blog. What I do want to bring is a little more structure – mostly just for myself. There will be three main sections to read from – fitness, travel and life – and whilst they will often intertwine, you’ll see different content within each category. If there’s anything you really want to see within these topics, please do let me know!
I already feel a lot better about the future of Life of Kitty knowing that I have a bit more of a plan in place. From what I’ve seen online, it seems a lot of bloggers have started to feel a little dejected and have fallen out with blogging. I wouldn’t say I have ‘fallen out’ with it, but I definitely haven’t been feeling as optimistic as I did at the beginning of the year. That’s just life catching up on me though!
Now is the time to get back to writing and creating content that I’m both proud of, and that I think brings something positive to my blog. I’m looking forward to getting back into it, and I hope you enjoy the new (ish) direction I’m heading in!
