No matter how much I try to explain things to everybody, these questions always make their way into the conversation. I often don’t know how to put it properly, but I decided to give it a thought and include them in a post here.
Q1. Why did you not pursue a masters degree?
A. I didn’t feel like it was important for the career that I have chosen for myself. The field of content creation requires more hands-on experience than bookish knowledge, and I’m pretty sure that I can learn more this way than I would have if I were sitting in a classroom, half-asleep, right now.
Q2. What are your goals, career-wise?
A. I don’t mean to brag or anything, but I’m actually living it right now and it’s going way better than I thought it would. Content writing is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m so grateful for every single day that I get to write. I see myself as somebody that can spread positivity for as long as I can, and I want to do that through my content. Maybe publish a few books in the near future, who knows?
Q3. Are you considering publishing a compilation of your blog posts in a book?
A. Actually, yes! It’s been in the works for a while now. I’m just trying to figure out how to go about it, what I should or shouldn’t include, how I can make it better, and if it’s a good idea at all. So, if I feel like I should write a much more elaborate and fun version of my posts in my book, I’d definitely want to put it out there pretty soon.
Q4. Since you’ve been writing regularly, how did you battle creative blocks?
A. Creative blocks have become second nature to me at this point! Just kidding, I do this thing called the ‘brain dump‘ to figure out what to write next. Since I don’t have a very technical blog, I can always go for funny stories or personal experiences. That kind of versatility in my content helps me maintain a rotation of sorts. Also, I am into a lot of other things when I’m not blogging, so that helps me stay motivated as well.
Q5. What do you do when the only thing stopping you from doing something is yourself?
A. I take a nap. There’s this running joke about a nap being the human equivalent of restarting a device, and I’m starting to think that it’s right. Even when I write articles for work, I don’t push myself to write when I’m not feeling up for it. I know that if I force myself to do something when I’m not in the zone, I’ll make a mess of things and that’s definitely not the way to do things right. When I wake up from the said nap, I ‘m all good to go.
I’ve decided to answer a few questions every now and then on my blog, just to keep things clear and interesting. You can always hit me up on my socials to ask me more questions!
