It’s been a long, long while since I posted anything here.
The obvious reason for me is that this year is a very busy one. You don’t know it cause I didn’t talk about it, but three years ago I went back to school in order to become a social worker, (yeah!) This year is the last and I have my certification coming with a lotta work.
So, that explains why I’ve been focussing on something else.
But if I’m being very open to you guys, the deep truth is that, I have ran out of things to talk about. I have the feeling that I came here because I had plenty of things to say about everything and anything. So, in the first six months, I wrote a lot, until I felt that I had said it all. I didn’t expect things to happen like that. I have always read, written, I’m interested in so many things, my mind is always busy somewhere, so I should be inspired, right?
Well, I guess it’ll come back when I’m more available. I’m not gonna fight it, and I didn’t want this space to become just a place where I randomly post about things just to be posting. And I didn’t want it to become a diary neither. I still enjoy coming here now and then, seeing that my fellow bloggers are still going aside with new ones.
What I’ve learned though along the way is that keeping a blog is a lot of work, not just posting but also interacting with other bloggers, leaving meaningful comments, feeding the readership and the relationship, because some bloggers can quickly become close despite the distance.
For those who start a blog, bear in mind that inspiration comes and leaves. There will be times when you will be inspired, write ten articles in a week, want to post every day, several times a day even. And other times when you will feel dry, out of inspiration. Don’t blame yourself or consider that it’s worthless, take the time you need, and come back when you feel ready.
I just wanted to share these few thoughts with you guys, in case it might ring a bell to someone else.
Happy Avent, for those of you who are preparing for Christmas.
See you around, as always !
Let’s take care of ourselves.
