Let’s talk blogging, or at least the lack of it that has been happening around these parts for the past few months.
For most of 2014 I lost my motivation to put much effort into writing. I tried to push through, I really did, but in the end this place was basically abandoned. I thought about it often, daily even, but I guess I just didn’t care enough to clean up the cobwebs growing in the corners around here.
Twenty Fourteen was a mess of a year. There were certainly some good points, I got to throw Sarah a bachelorette party, stand by her side as she got married, visit Megan in Edmonton, and met an awesome guy. But as many highs as there were, there were substantially more lows. J screwed with my life again (and I let him), and after that I kind of spiraled, not in a drugs and alcohol sort of way, but I was being destructive when it came to my friendships. I did things and acted in ways that I am extremely not proud of, regretful and embarrassed about.
So, when my poor choices finally caught up to me, things were a little dark for a while and somedays (most days) I’m still dealing with that.
This past year I also became very frustrated with the progress (or lack there of) I was making around here. I put too much importance on the number of page views and followers I had and I got frustrated that this place didn’t become popular quickly like other blogs. I forgot about why I started this blog in the first place; to document and share my likes, wants, thoughts and experiences with others.
You’ll see a lot of new changes around here in the next while. New name, new design (I’m hoping to work with Erin from Two Thirds Hazel) and a lot more consistency from me. I want to get back to loving this place.
It may take me a little while to get back on track, but I hope you’ll stick around. Seriously, things can only get better from here.
