Most of you probably forgot I exist because it’s been about 1000 years since I posted. I took a hiatus. I needed some time to figure out what I was doing with this blog. The hiatus was supposed to be short, but then life happened.
During my away time I’d think back to this blog and make a mental note to post. Then time got ahead of me, as it sometimes does. I got to thinking about why I took the hiatus. In short, I was getting too in my head. Worrying about my numbers, my views, my “niche”. You know what happened? Blogging became less about just enjoying the moment and interacting with others. I started to really resent blogging. I felt like I could only post certain things because the not all posts fell into my “niche”.
Then when my yearly site fees came up I had to really think about if I wanted to renew or not. I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t blogging I had grown to dislike, it was the imaginary rules I pushed on myself.Blogging is supposed to be fun, right? So why was I making it a chore? Who made these rules anyways?
Who says I have to follow them?
So, I’m breaking the chains, and the rules. I’m following my own blogging path. From here on out my blog is going to me a mixed bag of posts. not following some niche. I’m not going to dwell on the numbers. I’m going to post things I want to. I’m going to make my blogging experience fun again. I hope some of you stick around. 🙂
