First up, a huge, HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on yesterday’s post. It was so encouraging to hear your personal experiences with blogger jealousy, and even better to know so many of you are ready to leave the figures behind in favour of just enjoying it. Bravo to us – we can do it!
As well as jealousy, yesterday’s post touched on stress. Stress is something that affects me quite badly – I have a terribly short temper, I’m quick to fly off the handle and I cry easily. I blame my creative (read – dramatic) temperament! For the last year-and-a-bit, I’ve struggled with an 80 mile commute to and from a pressurised job which has left me sapped of energy and lacking in enthusiasm for anything.
So, I’m very pleased to officially announce I have a shiny new job, a mere 5 miles from my house! Hooray!
I’m going to be Online Communities Manager at a youth research agency in Leeds and I’m super excited. My start date is 16th August and I’m already planning my first day outfit (well, what did you expect?!). I’m hoping my new job will mark the start of a change for me and the Mr – new careers, new house, maybe even a holiday or two!
Are you making any big changes to your life? Are you venturing into the unknown, taking a different path or trying something new? Or is it the little things that make the difference? Let me know.
