It’s been a really long time since I’ve blogged anything. Over two months. I don’t usually like to leave it this long. Usually, I end up uploading something, even it’s a bit shit. I really miss it. Kind of like if you don’t see an old friend for a long time and wonder what they’re up to.
I haven’t been blogging for reasons threefold (my favourite phrase. I don’t know if there are actually three reasons but I’m going to make three reasons up just so I can say ‘reasons threefold.’)
- I’ve not had a great couple of months, and this is a stupid reason because writing makes me feel better like talking to someone I love or exercise or meditation or drinking water. I basically need it to function properly. So just because I’m stressed, this is counterintuitive. I should have been writing every day to realise my stress. But hey ho. We all do what’s bad for us.
- I have been really uninspired lately. I can’t even remember the number of times I’ve started a blog post and then stopped because I found it was already boring or depressing. I have a whole folder of drafted posts on my laptop that I’ve just thought are actually too shitty and sad to put out there.
- I’m worried that blogging is dead. I know that I should be writing this blog for me and if people want to read it then they can. But I also want some kind of acknowledgement for the time I’ve spent writing these posts. I don’t want to feel like I’m talking to a brick wall and just writing into an empty abyss that no one is going to give a shit about.
But I guess I won’t really be able to solve or know any of these things unless I give it a little go. Just whack out a post every now and again and see what sticks. So that’s what I’m going to do. If nothing else I’m sure it’ll be a fun thing for me to do instead of just watching Scrubs and eating almond Magnums. And maybe if I’m lucky I might get a couple of page views and all that jazz.
I just wanted to write this little post to let you all know I’m back basically, so keep your eyes actually peeled for loads of interesting and razzle dazzle content. Watch this space…
