It’s been a while! 6 months to be exact.
I honestly can’t believe how long it’s since I’ve last blogged. I wish I had a proper excuse, but the sad thing is; I don’t. As you might know, I worked for a company called Mankind. They’re the top online destination for male grooming and I was lucky enough to spend most of my days writing about and planning campaigns around male grooming.
2 years ago, it was just a dream that I’d be writing about what I love for a living. And when I set up HisHabits, it was always the goal that I’d make it my career. Luckily, it happened! Now I know you’ll all be wondering why I’m telling you this when you’re probably wondering where I’ve been.
When you’re writing about something all day, that last thing you want to do is write about it when you get home. At least that’s how I felt. I’d been working with the same brands for both work and my blog, and I made it my top priority to focus on my career. Writing two completely different articles on one brand isn’t as easy as it might sound, especially when you put all your effort into making the first one the best.
Quite frankly, I lacked motivation. For over 8 hours a day I’d be doing something relating to male grooming. When I got home, I just wanted to switch off and read a book, play a game, or watch a movie. Anything that didn’t involve skincare or haircare.
What’s happening to HisHabits?
Last month I parted ways with Mankind. All on good terms, of course. I still hold the business close to my heart, it was just time for a change. I’ve traded in for a shorter commute and a city centre role. Do you know how great it is to be able to walk to Wagamamas on your lunch?
It’s only been a month and I’m already getting that urge to write on my blog again. I’ve got tonnes of ideas playing around in my mind about what I’m going to write and when will be best to write it. I finally think I’ve found my spark again. (Famous last words.)
I’m going to try and get this up and running again. So keep your eyes peeled, hopefully you’ll be seeing a lot more from me.
