I did not take a break ! The Blog is not taking any !
I’ve been wondering for the past few days about something that I wanted to share on The Blog, and should I do it… or not do it ? Basically, it was kind of a conundrum for me, that’s why I haven’t posted anything at all, I just couldn’t make up my mind about it & it frustrated me to the point that I simply could not even bring myself to blog at all.
It’s no big deal really, but since I’ve “relaunched” The Blog recently, it came with some good changes, like taking my weekends off and deciding when I needed a week or two break sometimes, just so I can rest & relax, and also of course, work on some of my exciting projects with more time dedicated to it.
I usually post content daily, but like this week it wasn’t the case because of that big question of mine I couldn’t solve… that made me realize, my blogging experience online should be more organic and feel natural. I don’t want to force myself writing or posting things when I don’t feel like it, even if I’m almost supposed to since it’s a promise I made as a blogger to stay committed. Also, I don’t want not to post something just because it’s not The Blog aesthetic.
I don’t want to care about none of these things, I want to share whatever I like here because it’s my space to do so, and it feels more fun like this. Before I took a big blogging break and relaunched The Blog, I used to have a pre-determined schedule with exactly what I would post every day of the week and at what time, and it seriously felt after many years of doing that, very forced and tiring.
That’s why I stayed out of blogging for so long last year, I didn’t know if I wanted to blog anymore because of how mandatory and boring it felt. I just knew if I ever came back to it, would certainly never be like that again. To be honest with you guys, I never truly managed to stay out of blogging even during “the big break”. It’s a hobby and a pleasure of mine, and that’s what helped me become aware that I like it so much, I needed it back.
But different. Now, since the relaunch I don’t really have any constraining rules, and I definitively don’t want those anymore. I am breaking every rule that kept me away, just so I can be my truest genuine self & enjoy this much more by being in the moment. You can expect me posting random things I care about from now on, and that I think you will also find entertaining, even though it’s not my personal work. Love you ! xoxox
