Quietly Returning...

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.

  1. Welcome back! I've missed you! It's easy to get caught up in the "business" of blogging. Like you, I wanted to write for myself and my kids. Mine was supposed to be a scrapbook of my life. I worry folks don't want to hear about my day to day but that is just the stuff I want to remember. I say we both make a pact to just do our thing, and if people want to read, then so be it! Actually my favorite blogs are the ones that just tell me about their life. I feel like I get to know someone and often times relate to things. I do hope life is treating you well!
