I never purposely stopped blogging. At least I don't think so. I now think that it was likely the protective part of my psyche telling me to let things go and focus on me.
For a long time I fell into the same boat as a lot of bloggers. I had a pattern, blogging connections, readers and comments. I worried about how many readers I had and where I was getting my readers. I had a list of things to talk about that were relevant to my blog.
But here's the thing, I started blogging for me. And somewhere in all of that I lost me. I wasn't speaking to myself, not was I speaking for myself.
I could update you with this massive post, but instead I'll say this. I'm going to start blogging again. For me, about me. If it resonates with anyone else, great. If I never have another reader, that's ok too. The blog is returning to me.
