I guess I sort of took a very unexpected hiatus, huh?
I want to start profusely apologizing but I’m not sure it really matters. No one likes excuses. I definitely don’t think I hurt anyone’s view count, at least I hope I didn’t. I’m not sure I have enough followers yet to where people are keeping an eye out for my posts. If anyone was, I’m sorry for that also.
In February, I had 558 views! The most I’ve had since I started up in November of last year. Even though I was unbelievably proud of myself, I didn’t know what to do next. None of my content that I had been saving to post seemed good enough to share. I didn’t really have any great ideas of anything new to write.
I had great news to share, an engagement! But I didn’t know how to make a post about it without sounding ‘rant-y’. Then, the longer making a post explaining my absence was on my to-do list, the longer I avoided it. Can you tell that I run away from my stress and responsibilities when I’m not sure what to do?
Anyway, in March I went down to a whopping 97 views. From not posting anything at all. I think there’s a lot that can be learned from this:
- Even if what you’re posting isn’t your best work, it’s probably better than not posting anything at all.
- Don’t run away from your problems! You can still take a break, though.
- If you use writing as an emotional outlet for when you’re depressed, you’re gonna have less content when you’re happy. And that’s GREAT! If I lose views because I’m out enjoying life, that’s wonderful. Hopefully soon I’ll learn how to enjoy life and be consistent but for now, I’m a one-thing-at-a-time kinda girl ;).
I’m not necessarily unhappy now but I definitely am feeling an ounce of motivation to make some positive life changes, so I’m riding the wave and taking advantage before the energy leaves me!
I hope everyone reading this has a great weekend and can forgive me for being the terrible blog writer that I’ve been. I’m still kinda just wingin’ it.
