How Do you know it is Time to Change Your Mind? Why Change Blog Direction?
We, all of us at home, never for one moment thought that it would ever come to a point when I am not excited about writing about travel! Seriously, I am batty about seeing new shores…Only thing is; I just do not fancy writing about it all anymore. I just want to enjoy, breath it all in, enjoy every scene, without the beady eye of a blogger and critic. I have no idea why, and wonder, when is it a good time to change your mind about your blog?
When we started Pkjulesworld, we had re-discovered our travel bug, had joined a Travel Club and we were truly bitten.
So, in November 2016 we launched this amazing blog with our red carpet experience in Florence, Italy.
We have served you wonderful people every blessed week on all things travel as we saw or knew them.
- – The best time to book a flight
- – To Travel Habits, you must adopt
- – From Your quintessential Ultimate Packing Guide for any Trip
- – To the newbie traveller’s tips to Saving for that holiday
- – We also published A Great resource on How to Start Your Travel Blog.
- – Our Smart Travel Guide
- We had amazing guest blogs from Ryan Biddulph.
Yet, fast forward almost 5 years of consistently delivering all things travel, we feel ….blank. 💁♂️💁♂️
Is it time to change the direction of our blog? 🤔
We have been asking ourselves that question and also wondering: Is it ever too late to change your mind?Is it ever too late to change your mind?
I have been journaling about my feelings and allowing the thought to actually sink in, that:
I sadly am not feeling the spark, and haven’t for a while to write about travel.
And I am the main contributor to this blog.
Of course, I like to write about anything esp. travel from a place of authenticity. And have realised there is a whole world out there beyond writing about travel…It’s called living the experience.
So, I wonder should we look at the wider subject of lifestyle? 🤔
Yet, I know that being known for something is the way to serve better. And lifestyle is just too wide an ocean… Plus, well, I like to put a stamp on something…
The fam has also been terra-firma bound for a few. What with our eldest going off to University and the younger preparing for GCSE’s. We had to slow down to support him better.
But another major reason for me Julie has been, my laser focus on building our Kalungi group brand.
With me immersed 100% in the above task, it has not been an easy task to raise the energy, and I totally won’t allow myself to serve up half cooked content.
I am the type that is either all in, Go Big or Go Home. And lately, when it came to content on this platform, I had an overwhelming urge to proverbially go home.
Can you relate…? 🤔
I have had to keep on top of the Writing and Publishing side of our brand including creating a full course on it: Draft 2 Sold.
Focusing on building up the Business Transformational Coaching.
Staring a Mastermind for marketers and business owners The Winning Entrepreneurs Den…
It has been super-hot in the Kalungi kitchen… Yet…If one is passionate about something, they find the time.
I cannot say it’s a time issue, when one is passionate about something, they find the time. I can say hand on my heart it is a lack of passion issue. Could it be a bit of burn out?
So, while we are not going to completely disappear from your wonderful gadget, we will be taking time out.
Time to reconsider, check ourselves, see how best to serve you on this platform.
For the time being our last post for a long while will be about our trip to Israel and Palestine. So watch this space…
Then we will truly embrace the concept…
In the words of Seth Godin:
It’s never too late….to start heading in the right direction.
Changing Direction – What next?
Okay, hang on a wee bit. The website isn’t getting shut down or any such drastic measures. I bet you went phew! 😉
It may be that I am just a tad burned out, and need to lighten the load for a while.
In this case, it might be time to invite some guest bloggers, allowing me more time and energy to come up with a plan for our blog.
So, if you are
- a Fan and
- have been actively commenting and sharing on this platform, do reach to me on Facebook if you wish to post a juicy guest blog.
- This bit hurts me to say. But…its also an option. So, if you know someone looking to bag themselves a website thats been well and truly SEO’d, has great Alexa ranking and some great content to boot, Lets talk. Who knows we might be swayed…
So, we aren’t burning any bridges yet. We will take our time and make the decision that’s right for us and you our amazing readers.
Here is to hoping you have had a great trip with us. All over 59 countries and then some…We will be back. Just not the way you knew Pkjulesworld.
We leave you with Andrew Tyler’s change your mind lyrics… At some point he sings: “Lets travel again…”
We sure hope we will do so, vicariously with you, once we have worked out in our minds whether to:
“take the northern line… And leave the ghost of us behind.”
Take the northern line… And leave the ghost of us behind.
So that’s where we have been, are. Right now, we aren’t very clear on where we are heading when it comes to Pkjulesworld. And its place in the Kalungi Group brand.
On that somber note, know that you can still go out there, Do You and Be Great, until we put Pen to e-paper again! 😉
