I can’t believe that it’s been nine month since I wrote the last and only second post on here and nearly a year since I opened this blog. To be honest with you, I’ve never really got into social media. I opened a facebook account, hardly used it and closed it again before reactivating it again a few weeks ago . I opened a Twitter account, used it for a few month and then didn’t know what to do with it. And here I am with my (second) attempt of starting a blog.
So why am I doing this you might wonder? As you can read on the “About this blog” page, I started this blog to accompany the writing of a book. While I have been writing the book, I haven’t managed to build this blog at the same time. I have sent the book off to a few agents and I’m still waiting to hear from a couple who have shown interest. So it doesn’t all look too bad. However, I’m still a long way off publishing it, so I would like to use this blog as an opportunity to get my ideas out there and with your support, I might get my book published one day.
Things haven’t been great for me the last few month. I feel like I’m slowly and steadily falling into a hole and I’m scared that I might not get out of it once it’s sucked me in. This hole is unemployment. I’ll expand on it in another post or two. While I’m holding on to the last bit of hope, I’m also working on my own business idea and that is a zero waste shop. I will use this platform to keep you updated about it and again, with your support I might make it happen.
Finally, I want to use this blog as an open diary to give me the strength I need to get out of this vicious cycle of unemployment. I know I could write a diary and just leave it on my bedside table, but it just doesn’t feel enough. So thanks for listening and just being there.
