Hi y’all, I hope you have all had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year with family and friends. I must admit, these past couple of months, I took some time off from writing on the blog. I wanted to really be present in the moment during the holidays, and for me that meant removing myself from a lot of social media and truly focusing on my loved ones.
For those of you who may not know this, I am a Content Marketing Manager for a small marketing agency in Fishers, Indiana. I love to write. I write for fun and I write every day for my job! So when I say taking a break from the blog was necessary, it was also difficult because writing is one of my passions. Yet, I knew it was important to do so.
I realized back in November 2019 that I hadn’t full developed a purpose for my blog. I started blogging back in July 2019 and dove head first into the deep end, not quite understanding the journey I was embarking upon.
Blogging is not only a way to express yourself, or educate others on a topic, but rather an entire blogging community exists. One of kind words, love and support that comes from a large group of strong men and women. I was taken aback by the love and support I instantly received from people who were just as passionate about writing and sharing their passions as I was.
It wasn’t until November however, that I realized I didn’t have a well-defined purpose for my blog. What I originally started to be about encouraging young professionals to live their best lives, turned solely into fashion and beauty, simply because I was not devoting enough time to further developing my plan.
So what does all of this mean? And why is it important to you? Well for starters, it means that in this new decade, I plan on being more methodical about the topics in which I write about. I plan to expand my writing to touch on various topics in which I am passionate about.
So for you, I want my blog to be a beacon of light for the young professions in this world, who are just trying to figure it out! I want to share my experiences, in hopes that it might help someone else find their way. I want to share my love for fashion, as well as my love for living life as positively as possible, with the ones you love standing beside you.
There are many exciting things to come for Highly High Maintenance, and I cannot wait to share them with you. And I encourage you, if you have questions or would like to comment on my posts to start conversation, please do! We may be young professionals, and we may still be figuring out life, but at least we can try to do it together.
Until next time,
