DJH 441: got laid off?
You won't make progress unless you define the exact next step.
"Start a blog" is actually NOT an exact next step.
"Open account on Medium" or "buy domain name for personal website" is more specific. It gets the ball rolling.
Often, the hardest part of creating is just starting. So be clear on how to do that.

"A digital world also brings increased competition.

You need to be seen and heard.
You need to market yourself."
