Change can be a funny thing; some people hate it, some people embrace it but one thing that’s certain is that change is indeed inevitable.
It’s easy to glance at your social media channels and assume that everyone else is living a better life than you are. The filters can be deceiving though and it’s important to remind yourself that most of the time, you’re not seeing the full picture; it’s just a carefully curated feed that’s intended to create exactly that illusion.
The blogging industry has had its fair share of negative press in recent years. Some of it is quite justified and some of it, not so much. I began blogging properly in 2014. It started out as a very organic ‘Dear Diary’ page and I had no idea about things such as SEO, outreach, press trips and all of the other dimensions involved in the world of blogging.
Last year, I decided to take a break from Facebook. This was due to several different reasons and I wanted to start the New Year with a clear head. My Facebook feed had slowly become a place of negativity and bad news, an outlet for people to share gripes and verbally attack those whose views didn’t match their own.
