Oh boy! I haven’t done this thing in years.

It’s almost 2AM and I still haven’t figured out how to start this blog post. I’ve had several posts about giving blogging another shot and was thinking of just recycling them, but I feel like a lot of things have changed and doing it wouldn’t mean a thing.

I’ve been blogging since G knows when. It started as a pastime that became an outlet. A reminder that there are things outside of what I do that I enjoy and makes me happy, until it wasn’t anymore. I don’t know, maybe because I got pressured to have something to blog about because other bloggers have better things to offer. That’s when it felt like work. Blogging felt like I need to keep the do do do just to prove that I deserve the little space on the internet that’s named after me. I lost interest in things I used to love. I end up doing nothing in my free time. I became so uninspired. Blogging was supposed to be an escape, something where I can just write and be me without thinking about what other people have to say about me and what I do.

There wasn’t a day that I never thought about having my own space on the internet again, but knowing that I’m a certified fickle minded person, I just brush the thought off. December last year tho, after my trip to Taiwan, I was so determined to start blogging again and bought a domain and a theme on a whim and impulse, which I totally forgot until March. Despite remembering my spur of the moment purchase, I still didn’t do anything about it. Why? Because I don’t care anymore. I miss it, but I’m completely willing to let that thing go.

Boy was I wrong.

So here I am, giving blogging another shot! πŸ™‚

  • I’m so happy you’re back, Ate Danica. I never knew that I’d be back on this field again. I never pictured my 2018 involved blogging since I still don’t have the internet connection to continue this passion. In fact, going back wasn’t an impulsive decision or something I prepared. I don’t even have a domain but I just started. I think so long as you have this desire, you’ll go back to blogging whenever and however it takes. I feel you when you said that blogging could be such a work but I don’t mind it. As an opinionated person, I’d express what I want to tell and that’s how my blog serves me and the rest follows.

    • Thank you Augustin! And yes, as long as you have the desire you’ll always go back to the things that set your heart on fire πŸ™‚ So happy you’re back as well!!!

    • Yes, comparison does suck the fun out of everything. It’s so hard not to compare tho, but you gotta fight the demons lol. Thank you so much, Chantel! πŸ™‚

  • Welcome back Danicaaaa πŸ™‚ so happy to see you give blogging another try. looking forward to reading your upcoming posts :3

  • I can relate with this “I got pressured to have something to blog about because other bloggers have better things to offer.” it’s the same for me when I took a break last year too + more other reasons. I’m glad you gave blogging another try! Also, I’m super happy when you dropped by my blog! πŸ’–looking forward to your new posts!

  • Welcome back to the blogging world, Danica! πŸ˜€ Once you really make blogging a passion, whatever you do, even if you take a short or long hiatus from it, you will really go back. I’ve felt how you felt once. That blogging has become like work, you’d need to put so much thought into it to attract readers because the blogging world has become saturated and some just blog to earn. I’m not saying this is a bad thing but wouldn’t it be nice to blog just for yourself? And that’s a realization that hit me so hard, I had to step back a little. Good to have you back in this community, though. πŸ™‚ Just do what you want. There’s no pressure here, hehe.

    • Yes, sometimes we just need to take a break and think whether we still wanna do it or naaah. And I agree, we always go back to where our heart is πŸ™‚ Thank you for dropping by Renee <3

  • Yass! I’m so happy you’re back! Looking forward to your future entries!

    PS: I am obsessed with your theme! β™‘

  • I’ve been gone for a long time din and I’m just catching up on blog posts just now. Haha. Good to hear you’re back, Danica!
    Na-lost din ako na na-consume ng work for the past months, and every time I try to come up with something, I feel like it’s not enough or it might be half-baked, and ayokong magmukhang pilit lang. It’s hard talaga when we compare ourselves to others but I try my best not to. So here we are, trying to come back where we left off. Hope to see more of you around again! πŸ˜‰

    • Daaa!!! It took me almost a month to reply haha. I’ve been so busy I forgot I have a blog that’s still up and running haha. It’s nice knowing we still find time to go back to blogging despite being inactive for so loooong. Sometimes talaga we just need to find the motivation and the inspiration to continue, yung hugot to write haha.
