Imposter syndrome meant that I couldn’t live up to the name I chose for my new venture.
Sadness that I couldn’t be what I was preaching myself to be.
It took some hard feedback from fellow bloggers and readers to realise I needed to redirect this ship before it sailed into unchartered waters.
This is not just a blog, it’s my lifeline and my therapy.
So, I abandoned Money Savvy Muslim and rehomed myself as Simply Humaira
Why didn’t Money Savvy Muslim work?
When I first started that blog, I was reading a lot of personal finance blogs and I realised there wasn’t one geared up specifically for Muslims.
So, I started my own.
But despite trying my best to stick to one topic, I realised I wasn’t exactly frugal and since things were changing and shifting in my personal life, the content I was putting out didn’t match the name.
I was moving on with my life, but my name reflected a dream I sadly couldn’t realise.
Readers were not interested in my Money posts as much as I thought they would be and I dreaded trying to come up with topics to muster up the strength to write.
It all came to head around Easter when I took a month’s break to stop writing and start focusing on some courses I bought to make my blog profitable, and despite trying to put things to work I realised I was swimming upstream.
I didn’t like my blog anymore, it didn’t feel like me.
Why Simply Humaira?
I came up with this name because anyone who knows me in real life knows I am a simple girl at heart.
Lazy might be another term to describe me, but we’ll go with Simple!
And Simply Humaira is the essence of me, it’s all the things I love and am passionate about in one place.
I’m not writing for anyone apart from me now.
I’ve decided to take some time out, write when I feel like it but also cut down and focus on creating very high-quality posts even if that means cutting down the amount that I post and really focus on honing my Instagram account.
It’s all a labour of love but I’m confident this new approach will be a lot more rewarding for me and you.
I really hope you will join me on the journey.
