Yes, I said it! Out loud. For the whole world to see.
For the last 11 months, I have thought this on a regular basis!
Every month for the last 11 months, I have scheduled in time to blog and every month I come away empty handed. The strange part about it is, I LOVE to write. Over the years I have written songs, short stories, poems, and I keep a journal.
I really enjoy being creative and I love words so there shouldn’t be a problem with this.
I KNOW that I need to blog.
I KNOW that it will build awareness about who I am and what I do.
I KNOW that it will help my brands reputation if I do it well.
I KNOW that it will help with my SEO.
I KNOW that I SHOULD be doing it and yet, I still struggle with it every month. Why?
So, for those that follow my social media, you will know that I have been doing a lot of work on my ‘self’ over the last few weeks. I am trying to learn more about what makes me work, what stops me, what I am passionate about and what scares me. When I fully understand what makes me tick, I can develop that and become a better version of myself. Stefanie 4.0 so to speak.
At some point during my reflection time, I have discovered something really important. I am not going to lie, it took me by surprise…..
I realised that I have been struggling with it all because I thought that I had to write as Stef, the Virtual Assistant. Stef, the transcriptionist. Stef, the diary management pro, Stef, the business owner….and for some reason, I didn’t connect the dots. All of those Stef’s, they are all part of what turns me….the caring, passionate, whirlwind into Stef, the first-rate Virtual Assistant who can give you an extra pair of hands to help het a handle on your admin.
How did I not realise that they are all parts of my personality that as massively important in what I do? Why did I think that I could only portray one of them? Why did I think that I would have to change my voice?
With that in mind, I have set myself a challenge. For those of you that know me personally, I love a good challenge 😊
My challenge is to write 6 blogs but this time, I am going to let my creative side take over and let you get a peek of the real me. I will be doing the usual tips and tricks that may be of help, some general information pieces and some advice but they will have a lot more of my personality in them.
They will be written from the heart.
I would love to know if there is anything in particular you would like my thoughts on. Is there something that you can’t get your head around? A piece of software you would like to know more about?
Or would you like to know more about how I do it? How I manage a busy business around raising my terror tot? Ask away….I will always answer you honestly because that is who I am.
Now for the boring bits 🤣
