Lifestyle content creator Sharon Mundia has stopped blogging to rework her career.
On Tuesday, Mundia on social media alerted her fans over her decision to take a long break from the influencers’ business saying that she has been thinking about it for weeks now.
“I’ve been thinking a lot about my career the work that I do and I’ve just started to find myself questioning what it is I’m doing,” she said.
“This isn’t the first time I’ve had such thoughts in the last five months, where I just don’t really feel like I am and if it has any kind of impact if just those kind of existential type of questions what I’m doing with my life and I think for a while there I had decided to focus on and so I asked what are the numbers, how much are we making.”
Mundia, one of the earliest in the social media marketing business in Kenya, had taken a break two years ago and just made a comeback less than a year ago.
She revealed that her coming back, however, hasn’t been the same and that things have just been feeling off.
“I had a conversation that helped me realize my why on blogging after taking a year off. In fact in the last week or so I thought maybe I should take a year off, but a year is a little much coz bills, so maybe a few weeks to just kind of sit and think through coz I’m not happy with where things are,” she went on.
“I’m really not happy and I’ve struggled with sleep. I’ve struggled with where things are. I’m not not really happy and I’ve struggled with sleep. I’ve struggled with so many fronts and I want to do right by myself.”
She went on:
“Not to say its bye I’m out, it’s just to think more intentionally and strategically and holistically about what it is I do and why I’m doing it. I don’t want to blog just for money. I’ will step back. I’m not sure when exactly but for a good chunk of time.
“I’ve lost track of why I’m doing this “(content creation) Not to say it’s a complete 180-degree change so that it’s not just finances and money getting me out of bed.”
“At some point in the coming months, she will step away from social media, “On my end, it feels like I’ve completely lost it.”
