It’s been nearly two years since I decided to take a break from this blog. At the time, I was taking on new responsibilities at work, managing two large blogs (and basically stepping into my dream job as an editor). I was also trying to keep my freelance career going while raising a toddler and trying to buy a house (which we’ve been in now for over a year, thankfully!).
Needless to say, things were a little hectic in my world and letting go of the blog to explore other things felt like the right thing to do. To be quite honest, I didn’t think about it much after stepping away. The truth is, I didn’t have the time and attention I needed to devote to it to make it something I was truly proud of.
I was also struggling with having something to say. When you spend your day writing for others, you start to forget your own voice. That’s never happened to me before. And it’s one of the strangest places to be for a writer. So I kept thinking about coming back to this place to find inspiration again.
This is the blog I started when I needed to get creative. This is the place that allowed me to share my thoughts with others. And sometimes, it can be really hard to do that. But it’s even harder to bottle things up, or worse, lose your voice. So I’m hoping you’ll follow me again and share some thoughts with me, too.
And, if you want to follow some of my essays and short stories, you can do that on Medium. Click here to head to my profile.
Thanks again for reading. It’s good to be back.
