This is the first period in years that I’ve left my blog just go for months without updating.
To be honest I really did not want to. But I see other bloggers do it. And I just wanted to have a feel of what it was like to not have to worry about being here. Would I feel guilty, like I was letting someone down? Was I selfishly withholding value-adding information? Would someone check up on me? Do people even really care about the lifestyle of others, as per, being a lifestyle blogger?
I was starting to feel the blogosphere wasn’t really how it used to be. This blog doesn’t get the kind of engagements it used to, even though I’m consistent-ish. (I was.). The bloggers I used to interact with, my pioneer blogging community, about
80% 95% have all gotten retired. Haha. I can bet you reading this, you’re new-ish to this blog. (And I love and appreciate you). So now, my findings…
For what it’s worth, being away was not necessary. It didn’t prove anything to me. I just itched to write and then forcefully held myself back. And that makes no sense because why withdraw really?
Granted a part of me was feeling resentful towards this blog and I was going through a couple of rethinks. I’m not earning via this blog, I never had. But I renew the hosting yearly. But I give a lot of thoughts to my write-ups. But I give myself a restrictive timeline for posting. But I give my time judiciously to make content. Tbh it’s dispiriting.
Oh well. It sucks that I love this blog. And I love writing. And I love engagements. And I love the feeling of making contributions. And I love having to make myself accountable. And I love the drive for consistency and how it shapes me. And I love that having and keeping up with this blog has taught me a whole lot, and I’ve made a lot of good friends along the way.
So cheers to a hiatus-free blogging experience once again.
Oh my God, I have so much to write about! Something about a car. Something about a dog. Something about a house. Something about a process to promotion. Something about salary raise. Postsssss loading.
