It’s been my first week at Pearl Lemon, and needless to say, it’s been an absolute whirlwind.
I’m balancing a career change in my early 30’s whilst emerging from the weirdness that was COVID and lockdown.
New year, new life? Yes, I think so.
I’m partnering with Pearl Lemon as a Content Writer.
Since as far back as I can remember, I’ve been writing- I love the creative expression of putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard? Yet, doing so professionally? Well, as I say, here I am doing so for the first time, and it’s honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made.
Content writing beautifully combines two of my greatest passions, creative writing, and persistent connection with the world around me. I’ve always been a curious person by nature, and I see content writing as an opportunity to delve into a different topic every day. However, when working with Pearl Lemon, it’s more likely to be twice, or even three times a day; you’ll throw yourself into entirely different topics or perspectives, and I love that.
The best part of Content Writing? The never-ending learning.
I won’t sugar coat it, though. Working with a startup is no walk in the park, and even as I write this, I’m acutely aware of my growing to-do list.
Yet, that’s not a complaint. Far from it, in fact.
At Pearl lemon, your plate is never left empty… .or even semi. There is plenty of content to get through each day, which we split up amongst ourselves in the content writing team. There is a chance to work on various posts ranging from client to guest posts and our website’s internal content.
There is every opportunity to work on projects that interest you, which is ideal when starting for the first time in a new field. Already, in just a week, there have been moments where I’ve experienced cases of imposter syndrome, and I’m sure those moments will be back to revisit sometime.
In these situations, however, I refer back to one of my favourite quotes, one which I feel is appropriate to end my first Partner Blog with . . .
” Challenges are what makes life interesting, and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”
And on that note- till next time!
