I have not been blogging recently due to personal loss. Blogging just has not seemed all that important to me. I find myself not really knowing where to jump back in. So what happens next after a blogging hiatus? Do I pretend that nothing is wrong? Do my readers really care about what is going on, or do they just want to come to the site like always? How personal do I want to be, or do I continue with my blog as is? There are many questions I find that I am asking myself.
During this hiatus, I used this as an opportunity to clean up my blog a little bit. I had too many popups from too many plugins. I changed the theme. This blog has not taken off the way I wanted, and time off to reflect has not necessarily been a bad thing. I know I need to post more and better ‘content’. I have checked out tons of blogs to get ideas. The other issue I think about is are there too many blogs now? Is there a saturation of blogs? So many people seem to keep having success though, so maybe that isn’t an issue. I’m trying to stay active on Twitter and Pinterest to keep interest up on social media. Some days it seems ideas fill my head so fast that I can’t write them down fast enough, and on other days I picture my mind as a barren desert.
I guess my point is, I’m going to keep plugging away at blogging for a while. I’m going to keep researching ways to make my blog better. Like the tortoise and the hare, blogging is a long run, not a sprint. Maybe every blog needs a little hiatus from time to time. I hope to have a new blog post up soon. I’m still not sure what topic it will be, but stay tuned!
