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! 🙂
