Very shortly, I will be changing the look and content of this website.
There is so much more to me than simply my academic background, and I wanted my website to reflect this. In the past there were so many things I wanted to blog about, but I didn’t because it wasn’t related to psychology or neuroscience. The result was writing only two blog posts within the last three years.
This is a shame, as I love writing with a passion. It’s one of the few activities where I feel like I can engage my heart. It’s one of those things where you ache to do more of it, but you leave it to ‘someday’.
But I’m going to be honest – I’m scared to bits about doing this. I’m scared about writing openly and publicly about things I truly and deeply care about, such as spirituality and life development. This is because it isn’t in line with the ‘professional’ image that I tried to create when I set-up this website three years ago.
Why not just create a new website, one for professional use, and the other for personal?
I actually have done this. I had a personal website that focused on my journey towards eating paleo. You’re welcome to read it here. However, somehow having two websites doesn’t feel right. I feel like to continue with two websites would be to continue creating a false image based on how I think people around me expect to see me. I will continue to hide who I actually am inside if I continue separating the two.
So I’m taking the plunge.
I will make the changes gradually, probably starting simply with new blog posts. Eventually I will start making changes to the website itself. Watch this space!
