You miss me? Well, whether you did or didn't, I'm back. Now, I'm not back blogging every week. To tell you the truth, part of the reason why I left, besides my other reasons, was, I was reading other blog posts from other bloggers on how to have a successful blog. Some reasoned "you get out of it what you put into it", others say that just blogging when you feel like it won't get you anywhere.
I felt pressured to blog every week, and well, that was exhausting. Not that I actually blogged every week, but even just trying to, uuggh. Also, I was in a funk. Thoughts like "Are my ideas really all that great?" or "Who really cares what I accomplish anyway?" plagued me.
On my hiatus, I reflected on my motivation for blogging. For me it was a source of accountability. Knowing yourself and what makes you tick can help you greatly in life. I knew, for some things I needed accountability in order to successfully accomplish some goals. Usually, when you say that you're going to do something, out loud, to people, you tend to do them. I need to get back to that.
So what now? Well, I try again, not because I want my blog to be "successful" by the blogging world's standards but because I want to keep track of what I do. Sometimes we can go through a whole day, week, month and think "I haven't accomplished anything!". This could be a way to remember what I actually do. And maybe, just maybe, my ideas may help motivate or inspire someone else.
So although I may not be back every week, or two weeks even, I'll be here, blogging when I feel like it whether I'm "successful" or not.
