Why I Went Missing: My Fallout with Blogging

Share
Hi Everyone,

I know it has been quite some time since I last posted something here. I remember the last time I tried to start writing again, but unfortunately I failed. I guess I have been busy with work and everything around me that I wasn't able to put blogging as one of my priorities. I feel regretful for I have failed to continue writing for quite some time. Writing has been one of my interests ever since I was young. Don't get me wrong, this blog is still important to me, it's just that I don't know how to fit it in my busy work schedule, or at least that' what I keep telling myself.

I believe in the saying "If there's a will, there's a way", but I guess I didn't want to write/blog enough for me to actually try. I can say I had a fall out with blogging. I felt as if I didn't have the heart to create something. I have so many things I want to share, and so many things I want to talk about, but I didn't. I dwelled on the excuse that I had too much going on, but in reality, I can squeeze in a blog post once in a while.

I believe I've lost touch, with my writer side. I think I've forgotten why I started blogging in the first place. I noticed how I wanted to showcase a specific item, book or food for the sake of getting more readers, instead of sharing that particular thing because I want to. I got pulled into this blackhole where getting more views was more important than actually sharing my opinions. I didn't even write as much as I wanted to say because I feared people would think it was too long. I lost my way. I got off track. I forgot the reason I started blogging in the first place, My love for sharing my opinions with the world.

Blogging was my outlet. If I wanted to express how I felt regarding a particular book, I would elaborate by making a blog post. If I wanted to express how I felt regarding a certain dish, I would share how I felt through writing a blog post. It made me happy to write and share about my experiences.

Over these last few months I've started feeling the itch to write again. I wanted to write again, but this time, hopefully I will stop looking at the views and start focusing on how I want to share my experiences. Don't get me wrong, I also love writing for my readers, knowing they are interested in what I write. It's just that I won't focus on the number of views I get for the things I share. I cannot promise you my posts will be consistent again, as I will still try to work out how I will squeeze in writing with my work schedule, but I will try.

I would like to thank everyone who stayed with me and checked my blog even though it has been dormant for a long time. I hope you will continue to read and check out my posts in the future. Also, I would like to share that I will be writing some posts where I will write how I feel and my daily experiences. Yes you read that right, I will be writing about my life and daily experiences. Although, if you are not interested in this and is more/only interested in the items I share, I don't mind. Don't worry, you will be able to pick which ones to read and not read anyway. By the way, I apologise if this post was sort of all over the place. I'm just blurting out everything I feel and think.

I guess this is it for now. Thank you for reading this far down and I hope you check out my blog again soon!

Note: I will be doing some changes regarding the layout and template soon <3 p="">
Xoxo
