Hello pricey visitors (if there are any visitors still left)! What happened to blogging? If only I understood. I have shed a bit my mojo I feel. Also this electronic daily life has turn out to be rather draining – I kind of really feel it a lot more and far more immediately after virtually a few yrs of freelancing and mostly working by myself from dwelling. Don’t get me mistaken, I am satisfied, I like what I do. But at times I feel like it is also repetitive, it is too superficial, it is irrelevant, dull – did I point out repetitive? Nicely even the terms listed here come to be recurring.

At times I wallow in reminiscences and uncover it all fairly astonishing. Not numerous of you will know, but I studied international organization administration and economics and when I was a pupil social media wasn’t a factor but. I feel it was the early ages of some student networks this kind of as early Fb and some German counterparts that I knew as an individual living and learning in Austria. Imagining a expert career in the digital globe or more exactly in the sphere of social media was just unimaginable. And still listed here I am, whole time influencer. Oh how I despise the phrase. I actually do. Influencer? As if I am sitting down at household and generating conspiratorial ideas on how to impact and seduce you. You know, like buy this, invest in that, insert much more crops (alright guilty for the latter at least).

I have consciously chosen this ‘career’ route. Do you see how I place the phrase vocation in quotation marks? Yup, due to the fact I normally need to convince myself that this is my work now. That this IS a position at all. Nonetheless I surprise: Is it actually a job? Or am I just fortunate to be driving the digital wave and owning located my specialized niche to make my dwelling with it? I in some cases tend to ignore the path that led me to the place I am currently. A long time and many years of non prevent running a blog (indeed back again then I blogged six occasions a week) and continuous networking on Twitter (all those were being the decades). And all of this I did for many years in a row though also getting a total time work in PR and marketing and advertising businesses (with all the glamour of piling surplus hrs and shoddy pay). Those ended up times exactly where I would commence doing work at 9 am and complete at property at just one or two am. Going to bed, waking up, and carrying out all of it once more the following day. For several years and years. And then I slowly managed to construct my weblog, my social media existence, create a local community of plant lovers, produce a single e-book , then one more, do the job on structure and styling projects, give lectures, host classes and so on. And now I am a freelancer. Complete time ‘influencer’. Complete time functioning from house. Full time asking yourself if this is actually relevant and fulfilling. Lots of whole listed here. Repetitive and recurring.

I just reread my last paragraph and I do get the idea that this might audio a bit destructive or disillusioned. But neither is accurate to be trustworthy. I am joyful, I like what I do, I just wonder if this is what I want to do for the following decades to come. I wrote guides. I did structure assignments. I labored as a speaker and course host. So what is subsequent? I do not know myself but I want one thing new to surface on the horizon. Something that would obstacle me once again and persuade my creative imagination and know-how. Strike me up if you have tips:-)

In the meantime rest confident that I am fortunately sharing what conjures up me and what retains me going creatively – typically on Instagram (and sure, I choose the phrase inspirator around influencer). But I want to be way extra energetic here on the site way too from now on (many thanks Holly from Decor8 for regularly reminding me of blogging). It previously feels additional considerable crafting a longer textual content than just a couple strains of an IG caption. And no matter whether or not anyone is examining this – it will be out there riding the electronic wave and whoever surfs by, love the journey and the read!

In the meantime, sense totally free to occur and go to me on this dwelling tour by Westwing (incl. a video tour and some plant guidelines) – it is the most new tour of my Berlin apartment!
