When I’m not travelling, I work as a lawyer (don’t hate me, we aren’t all bad!). Now, if you work in law (or similar office environments) you might have experienced the feeling of having all the creativity sucked out of you. Now, whilst I do enjoy my job for the most part, the law by its very nature does not harbour creativity. In comparison, as a child, I loved being creative. Whether it be writing, drawing, painting, building lego or making up silly games with friends – imagination was king. I also had a curiosity about everything and would devour book after book. In my experience, at least, as we grow up we lose this spontaneity, this creativity, this hunger to learn.
In a bid to rekindle my creativity, I had toyed with the idea of starting a blog throughout 2017. At first, the thought was overwhelming: the sheer number of places to write about, getting to grips with WordPress, reading about SEO. I was also apprehensive. The idea of putting something which I’d created out there, for anybody to read. In late 2017, I had some downtime between jobs. Being my new and improved ‘say yes to things’ self, I leapt head first into the world of blogging.
