I’m writing this blog post in the notes on my phone on the train to London so I’ll keep it short and sweet.
Last time I did a roundup of my favourite posts from the past month, you guys seemed to like it. That’s why I thought I’d make it a regular occurrence.
Last month I loved…
It’s time to say goodbye to self-doubt – Sophar so good.
You’re probably sick of me harping on about self-doubt at this point but it’s very real and I know I’m not the only one who suffers with it.
I related to this post Sophie wrote from the very first sentence where she admits to taking 57 minutes to write an email. I also love that it’s not a generic list of ways to get over it. It’s more about just acknowledging why we have it, what triggers it and making a conscious effort to rationalise.
The pros and cons of being self-employed – More About Cat
Going freelance full-time is definitely a dream I put on a pedestal so I need advice like this from fellow creatives who’ve already taken the leap and experienced the good, the bad and the ugly to bring me back down to earth sometimes. I’ve got a lot of time for honest posts like this one.
The 5-step hack to turn around an unproductive day – Career Contessa
I’ve been feeling a bit ‘meh’ recently when it comes to productivity. I can’t say I’ve been unproductive necessarily because I’m still getting the job done. I just haven’t felt that ‘ooh, I’m excited’ inspired feeling that I crave.
The hacks in this post have helped me shake things up a bit though. The one about logging out of social media has been particularly helpful. There’s nothing like an unfollow or a dud post to make you feel flat when you’re already down so it makes sense to take a step back. Maybe I just had to see it written down in order to do something about it.
On not needing to know it all – Natalie Leanne
Natalie’s style of blogging is incredibly unique. It’s short, sweet and refreshingly to the point and this post is no exception. It came at a time when I was feeling super overwhelmed by blogging and all the million and one things that come with it and I really needed that.
Are there any posts you’ve particularly enjoyed reading this month?
