Hi friends! A week or so ago I presented a poll on Instagram and an overwhelming majority of you requested that post short, more frequent posts. It makes me so excited that you want to read more of me more often!
Jokes aside, I am entering a season where this will actually be possible. I often remark about blogging more often, but this time around I think I have the right mindset to do so.
So what happened? Well, yesterday was the last day of my big-girl day job. I am a full-time graduate student in the Public Administration program at UNC Charlotte and.... the big news... officially a freelancer! I have literally spent the last three years scheming of ways to freelance and it is finally about to start. In all honesty, timing and connections are everything. I couldn't have begun freelancing before because my health, my family and my day job - as a writer, no less - was my first priority. Since moving to North Carolina, starting graduate school again and quitting my day job to focus on a new career, I have been blessed with the opportunity to pursue freelancing from a public service perspective - it literally couldn't be more perfect!
I hope to be able to share more details with you soon. But for now, I'm excited to say that the blog will become alive again with regular content! You may have noticed that I added a pop-box for collecting emails. Trust me, I hate spam as much as anyone so should you choose to sign up, please know that you will only ever receive new post updates from me. I won't send you anything else without letting you know first! But I would love, love, love to connect with you. Feedback is ALWAYS appreciated!
For those who have been with me on this journey since the beginning, thank you. And to those who have just joined, I am SO glad to have you here! I want to leave a tiny bit of revelation with you:
I want to you to know that the wait is never too long! While it may seem impossible, your goals and dreams can become a reality when you trust the process. For me, that meant soaking in every bit of information, training and industry exposure while working on building connections, submitting resumes and (free) guest posts, going to dinner/drinks out, and trusting God.
And to be honest, I didn't trust him for a long time. But he has a funny, wonderful way of proving himself to me regardless of my mindset at the time. So I implore you - no matter what goal or dream you have that seems too far out of reach - just keep going!
I haven't made a formal announcement, so ta-da! Here is my official freelancing website! Take a gander, share with someone looking for some content help and let me know if you have questions, concerns or ideas. Thank you for all of your support!
