So fast forward to 2014: Three years later I have my own apartment in Hamburg and work in an online-shop that sells fabrics again. I'm responsible for blogger relations, finding people for our affiliate program, writing texts and coming up with ideas for sewing tutorials and the general work that comes with creating tutorials. Basically everything that I imagined to do in 2011 I'm doing right now. But one thing is different - I'm not working on my own or freelance, I have a contract with Europes leading online fabric retailers.
This has it's perks and I learned a lot in the last two years, but anyway lately I've been thinking about my initial idea again. I'd love to spend more time with my blog and not the companies blog. The only problem is time. As I work 40 hours a week + some more, then having to juggle everyday life with a social life and my volunteer work for a sports club, I'm basically happy if I have a free moment that I'm not sitting in front of my computer.
Today I had a look at my blog after two months of not having a look at the statistics and I was very surprised that I still have readers everyday. I guess the content that I already put up is interesting to some people, or they are caught by the blog title? Anyway, I just wanted to use this opportunity to let you in on my thoughts. Maybe you have the same problem about time and finding the time to do something which is basically a hobby, but that you want to professionalize for yourself. Any thoughts?
