Comebacks are a funny thing: they can either go amazingly well (Take That, Craig David, Britney Spears) or are a complete face-planting disaster (Ashanti, Lindsay Lohan, Ray J). So when I decided to start blogging again, I knew it was risky business. Was I even missed? Did anyone actually care that I wasn’t writing anymore? Most importantly – will I still be able to do it?
I used to absolutely LOVE writing posts for my little blog. Coming up with new content every week, in the hope that you lovely lot would follow the link from one of my shameless plugs and read right to the bottom, became a bit of an addiction! But (there’s always a but, think J-Lo) I started blogging because I love writing and if I’m honest, I started to fall out of love with it, which is why there’s been a bit of a content black hole for many months.
The thing is, it takes a lot of hard work, time and effort to maintain a blog and it was starting to feel more like a job than a hobby. I was no longer enjoying the whole process and when you’re writing for the sake of writing rather than for the love of it; something isn’t quite right.
But (this is an even bigger but, think Kardashian) I really want to write again! I’ve had a niggling itch to put pen to paper, well finger to key, for a while now and who am I to argue with that? FYI I would highly recommend seeing a doctor if you have a niggling itch in any other region…
Moving swiftly on, food has always played a huge part in my life: be that reading about it, cooking it or eating it and I’ve always had dreams of being a food writer. Now with a job in food PR I’m very much on the way and it’s majorly reignited my passion to produce my own content, so here we are. If Britney can reform a career after her now infamous head-shaving, car-smashing breakdown then there’s hope for us all! I can’t believe I just quoted Britney as inspo but there we go…
In the spirit of comebacks, you may have noticed I’ve given my little blog a bit of a facelift: an essential step for everyone returning to the spotlight. I hope you’ll agree it’s slightly more sleek and sophisticated than before – think 2006 Gary Barlow once he’d lost a bit of weight (and Robbie) and got a decent hairdresser. See below.
Here we go again!
