It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written a blog post. And it’s not like there’s nothing going on in my life. On the contrary — I’ve been incredibly busy. But I feel like I’m in the middle of a lot of projects and endeavors, and not ready to write about them yet.
I’ve had a number of initial conversations about job opportunities that are still up in the air. I’ve been working on a freelance social media project that’s not yet wrapped up. My YouTube channel continues to grow. I have an upcoming video editing gig.
These are all endeavors that will make great topics for this blog. But I need to see them to the end — or at least to a major milestone — first.
And this all has gotten me thinking about the future of this blog.
I started this blog with the sole purpose of documenting my journey exploring potential new career paths during my sabbatical from work. Of course, since then, it has evolved to include entries about personal struggles and developments, as well as reflections on work and life.
But I like to think that, on the whole, my primary focus of Better Late Than ______ has remained my career journey.
So, what will happen when I return to work?
Obviously, I’ll still be on a career journey, but the changes and developments will happen over a longer period of time. I anticipate increasingly larger stretches of time where I’m “in the middle” of something, with not much to update.
So, does this blog shift to more personal development topics? I definitely have a lot to tackle in this arena.
It’s really hard to determine now. And maybe I don’t really need to determine anything.
I think no matter what the topic, I have recently decided to only write a new blog when I feel like I have a valuable update — thus the longer gaps in between posts.
So here’s my update to say: I don’t really have much to update … yet.
