Hey, hello, hi...I’m back! I am going to get real with you for just a sec. And then I’ll jump into the life update and future goals/plans for this blog.
So, I fell off from blogging for a little while because it started to feel like a chore and I didn’t like that. I started blogging because I love to write but that even went away for a little bit. I had so many ideas for blog posts but I just couldn’t bring myself to actually write them, which made me sad honestly. I’ve been blaming my lack of posts on the fact that I moved and got a new job and blah blah blah, but I just didn’t have that motivation or love anymore. But good news, I think it is starting to come back. I miss writing a lot and moving to a new state has been seriously inspiring. I want to stop making excuses for myself and just start doing what I love, you know? So, here's to moving forward!
So, here is an update on my life - because a lot has changed. I recently graduated from Ohio University this past May and moved to New York in the beginning of June! I am about 90 minutes north of the city and about 20 min from the Hudson River, and I absolutely love it here. I moved to this area because I was offered my dream job!! I am planning weddings and events at a beautiful winery and I am just obsessed with it - it is everything I could have asked for and more. Initially I really wanted to live on my own but man..New York is way more expensive than Ohio...so I have two roommates! Having roommates was honestly a blessing in disguise for me; it makes sense financially, I made two friends right off the bat, and they know the area and the culture which helps me a bunch. I am in a really great place in my life right now and I am finally ready and wanting to share all my experiences with you! Which brings us to my plans and goals for this blog!
I am not going to have a post schedule. I said that in my first “about me” and then I got super motivated to write so I made a post schedule, which I hated. SO, we are going back to no schedule. I will write/post when I want to - it’s that simple. I am still going to be writing about the same kind of things I was before, but I can see the “exploring” tab having a lot more content because I am in a new area and will be doing a lot of exploring. I don’t think I am going to have my graphics all be uniform anymore because that got seriously boring and I think it looks seriously boring. As far as my Instagram goes (@LivingErin.Blog) I am not going to be worried about “building” it. If you want to follow me and read my stuff, cool. If not, that’s okay too. I am not going to worry about how many followers I have or how many people are reading my posts - those numbers are awesome to look at and appreciate but that’s not what I care about. I am not writing/posting for money or to create a brand, I am simply doing it because I love it and I love reading other peoples experiences as well. I hope this doesn’t sound snobbish or anything, because that's not my intention at all. I just want to love what I am doing and be happy with it.
So, there you have it. If you’ve stuck around from when I first started blogging, thank you so so much. If you’re new, welcome and thank you! Talk to you guys soon!
