Currently – An Instagram Blogging Experiment Update

Instagram blogging, thoughts about life and plans for the future. Catch up with me!

Currently - Instagram blogging Update

Hello friends, family, and gentle humans!

It is I, the Uphill Writer. I have returned after a brief hiatus from the blog after a (short) Instagram experiment.

At the start of Feb 2018, I wrote a post where I chatted about the little experiment I was going to attempt. You can read all about it here, but basically, I was going to attempt to blog exclusively on my Uphill Writer Instagram account for the rest of 2018.

Here’s the thing, I failed at that Instagram blogging experiment. Ha! I did a few posts (which I’ll list below), but overall, it was just too restrictive. There’s a character limit, no formatting, and it just didn’t scratch that blogging itch the way I had hoped it would. So I’ve decided to kick that idea to the curb and I’m back here on the blog where I belong!

I’m on holiday at the moment so I thought I’d do a quick ‘currently’ catch up post now that I’m back.

Quick update: Uphill Writer is jetting off to Malta

Just a quick update on where Uphill Writer is off to this June!

Jetting off to Malta by Uphill Writer

Hello everyone! I’m so sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I’ve been a busy bee and have many posts waiting in my drafts, but for now, I have some exciting news to share.

As most of you know, my brother and I started Inkfish Digital a few years back. It’s a copywriting business where we create content and tell stories for our clients as well as handle social media. Well, we’ve worked with some great companies, but thanks to our awesome clients based in Malta, I’m leaving South Africa for the very first time!

Trying to conceive – The reality of wanting a family

Trying to conceive. Falling pregnant. Having a baby. All of these phrases sound so innocent, but in reality, it’s so much more than that.

I’m not shy in chatting about how much Daniel and I would love to have a family. We’ve been married for more than 3 years now and more than a year of that has been spent trying to conceive.

Wanting to have a baby as much as Daniel and I do, but each month being disappointed, is something that wears on your mind. It’s the sort of situation that turns the world into a black and white canvas. I’m either pregnant or not pregnant. It’s one of the few situations in life that is a complete. You’re either entirely pregnant or not. No grey area.
