Dear readers, I've decided to take a little break from this blog of mine. I'm not sure for how long, but I don't wish to put the pressure of a deadline on myself at the moment.
You see I have a lot on my mind at the moment life-wise so I have not had the mental energy to write thoughtful, well-written posts. I know I've been fairly regular with posting since the new year started, but to be honest my heart has not really been in it. I've felt sort of "lukewarm" about many of my posts and at times have MADE myself sit down and write them even though I was not really feeling it. I think it's best that I take what little time and mental energy I have at the moment and allocate it to working out some personal life details I've been neglecting. Blogging right now sort of feels like another obligation on the list and is only serving to further overwhelm me.
I need to clear my head and make some decisions and I need space in my brain to do that.
Aside from my personal life, I am also taking a break from the blog for a bit because I've been doing a lot of thinking about where I want to go with it. To be honest, I feel I've hit a "plateau" here and I'm not sure I'm still 100% invested in this blog. I still love blogging and want to continue with it, of course, I just feel that I need to reevaluate - perhaps narrow my focus or choose a new one. I just need to think about where I wish to go with it next; I have some ideas but I need to think further on them and figure out whether or not I want to commit to them.
Integrity and quality are two things that are important to me when it comes to any material I put out there on a blog, so I feel it's better to change course rather than have the content (and therefore my readers and myself) suffer. This could mean the starting of a completely new blog, it could mean changing the format of my blogging - I don't know! But once I figure it out, I promise I will let you know! You haven't seen the last of me!
Thank you to those of you who read and comment on a regular basis - you're a big part of the reason I love blogging so much and want to continue with it. Thanks in advance for your patience while I figure some things out.
