We Didn’t Break Up, We Were on a Break.

“Do you remember our first date? It was a little awkward, neither of us knew what to expect, and we kicked around a couple ideas about the future.”

“We’ve had our ups and downs (a.k.a. not posting in over a month), but that’s because I needed a little “me time” to figure out where we’re going.”

“You’re right some things will have to change, but I think we’re moving in the right direction.”

This last month has been a whirlwind of activity everywhere except PeelingOut. Instead of blogging here, I’ve been contributing to other sites and trying to figure out what direction to take my blog. I’ve never been excited about my blogs theme and a few formatting things have been on my nerves… I’m talking to you super small font size and awkward spacing.

On top of that, I’m trying to find a new direction to go and an topic focus. Right now my posts are an awkward mess of public relations, food, travel, and a small slice of social media. To really have fun and be something I’m proud of, I think it needs to be focused on a few topics. I love writing about food and travel but I’m a little nervous because those topics are covered by so many people already.

I’m definitely going to stay away from PR and social media posts because those posts make me feel like I’m writing a text book… and I barely read all of my text books in college. (I’m just kidding mom.)

Thanks for hanging with me as I figure out a new direction, a new look for the site, and maybe a new name. I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions, so feel free to drop them in the comments section below, send me a Tweet or shoot me an email.

Cheers,

Joe

    Hello Joe!
    You know, I worried a lot too about what kind of blog I would write and the fact that maybe having a “bento” blog might put me at a disadvantage. Here are some of my thoughts on the matter:
    1) Writing in more than site usually helps since you can have different topics on different sites”
    2) Having all topics in one place is not necessarily a bad thing though because it paints the best picture about your personality.
    3) When I started writing about films I thought “so many people already write about that” then I realized no one will ever write like me so please never be hesitant about writing about a topic because others are writing about it.
    4) Let’s grab a drink and discuss further!
