The Way Forward for HollyGoesLightly in 2018

So, I’ve been writing and curating this blog since 2013 (woah I’m an oldie in this industry!) and I’ve loved the way it has grown and developed with me: the subject matter has changed and adapted as I have and my love of creating content has led me to introduce photography and videography alongside my writing.

I’ve played-around with what works here on HollyGoesLightly and the sort of posts I create. I’ve tackled different subject areas and have tried to bring in scheduling.

What I’ve learnt about myself is I’m a busy person and I write better when I’m feeling it and being spontaneous. When I try to structure my posts or set myself goals in terms of how much I post and when, I loose the drive. So I’m not going to do that anymore.

I’ve frequented it’s sister, The Opera House, but for some reason hadn’t caught a show here before.

Juggling being a Mum, Blogger and Business Owner – Can you have it all?

This isn’t something I’ve really written about before, yet being sat here, first week back at work, with my daughter enjoying an extra day in nursery (and me being wracked with guilt for the first two hours of the day) and a growing baby bump, I thought it seemed a fitting time to reflect. I’m a Mum, Blogger and Business Owner and I’m not quite sure when that all happened…

It’s been a gradual yet also sudden change in my life…I know that sounds strange doesn’t it? But it’s something I guess I’ve been making steps towards for years, perhaps without realising it, but then suddenly “bam”, it happens! I had my own limited company, a baby and this blog!Continue reading
