If anyone says that blogging is easy, don’t believe them. I’ve certainty placed a lot of pressure on myself to post regularly and it really helped with getting me to write and edit even when I just felt like watching Netflix. I’ve gone through times when my brain was like a desert to other times when I had so many posts being drafted I didn’t know what I was writing about anymore. It’s hard coming up with ideas sometimes and I think at one point I was trying to write for the crowd and restricting myself when I shouldn’t have. I’m still trying to break this mould.
I want to thank all of you for reading. It’s so daunting to decide to share parts of my life and thoughts with an audience. I know we shouldn’t fear the judgement of others, only of ourselves, but it’s hard to shake off. Especially as someone who dislikes conflict and confrontation, I’ve spent much of my life holding my tongue and not saying much. I’ve come across such kind, supportive and inspiring bloggers and readers here from across the world. Thank you for taking the time to read, comment and like.
I’ve really enjoyed reading everyone’s writings on life, adventures and general interests, I’m even embarassed to admit how much time I actually spend on here reading and looking for new blogs to read. It’s nice to find a place with more thoughtfulness, ruminating, crafting and be swept away to all parts of the world. It really tickles the dreamer and traveller within me. Sometimes I think why I can’t be friends with all you lovely people in real life but I guess there’s just not enough hours in the day for that.
I, like many others I would think, am hoping for a more ‘normal’ 2021. Whatever that’s going to look like. At least we’ll be able to write about it.
Stay safe and see you all next year!
