It has been just over a month since I last published a post on here – the longest break I’ve taken from blogging in almost 2 years. Today I wanted to explain why I took that time away from writing and also what the future of this blog is going to be.
I honestly didn’t intend to take a break from blogging. I didn’t inform anyone that I wasn’t going to be posting either (I think there are enough ‘taking a break from the internet’ monologues from bloggers out there) and to be honest I’m not sure anyone has really noticed! But, of course, I have noticed and have really missed being in the zone with blogging.
So basically, my life has been a bit stressful recently. I’m not going to go into details too much, but I’ve had a lot of stuff on that I’ve had to dedicate my time to instead of blogging. I still am really busy, and my priorities are still going to be focused on other things for the time being, but I feel ready now to be creative again.
But taking this time off has given me the opportunity to reflect on how I want to run this blog going forwards. There has been a lot of talk about ‘the end of blogging’ recently – which if I’m being totally honest, I took to heart. I seen some blog posts that made me feel like all the work I’ve put into this blog was for nothing – which isn’t the fault of the person who wrote it, but rather just a symptom of my insecurities. But nevertheless, it gave me pause and I’ve been thinking about what I want the future of my so-called ‘blogging career’ to become.
