This blog has been dormant for a while. For almost 11 months, to be specific. And during that time, I have felt a combination of relief and low-level guilt for removing blogging from my routine. In all honesty, I haven’t really missed it. I like to interact, and blogging hasn’t proven to be the best platform for that, for me anyway. I’ve put my online energies into Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram because they seem more conducive to connection and feedback.
The time has come when I need to decide if I’m going to renew my Typepad subscription. I’m not ready to let it go, and I can’t justify paying for another year if I’m not using it, so I’ve decided to try easing back into posting here. Once or twice a week, maybe. I think that’s doable.
Plus, it kind of goes along with my One Little Word for the year: reboot.
Last year turned out to be a rollercoaster of a year, culminating in moving to a new house three weeks before Christmas. (In retrospect, I’m glad we took that plunge, but there were a lot of what-were-we-thinkings uttered at the time!) I handled the peaks and valleys of a crazy-pants year pretty well for someone who really likes to plan, organize, and feel some sense of control over things. But as a trade off, I found I got a little bit stuck, staying close to my comfort zone whenever I could. Nothing wrong with that when things get stressful, but by January I was ready for a reboot. A fresh start across the board...updating my home décor, finding some new dinner recipes, getting back in the habit of making time for creativity, making more adventurous choices. And now, resuscitating my blog.
So if you’re still reading, what would you like to see here? I’d love some feeback as I plan future posts.
