I somehow ended up with a guest post on A Slob Comes Clean today. Even though I don't really blog anymore.
But over the past few months I've thought about returning to blogging. And this guest post has made me think even harder about blogging again. Which has made me think about why I started blogging and why I stopped blogging.
I started because I like to write and I like to think; I like to process life through writing.
Plus, all the cool kids were doing it.
I stopped because it began to feel like a lot of pressure and like one more thing I had to keep up with. In the past 2-3 years I've really been working on some stuff and life has seemed really messy - not in the physical sense, but messy in my head. Messy, as in, I can't quite bring order to all that is happening to me at the moment and having to write coherent things on a blog is just a tad bit overwhelming.
I'm in a different place now. I have new confidence. I have a new ability to be honest about what I want to do and a new ability to say no to the things I don't want to do. I also feel like my house is much less messy and overwhelming than what it used to be. Perhaps I could pick blogging back up and not feel pressured about it.
I'm still not 100% sure about that, but I have had about 10 posts rolling around in my head for the last month so we'll see what happens.
Anyway, I felt the need to write something new since Nony is linking here today. I don't know why I included a link to my blog in the first place if I am truly no longer blogging. (Maybe that is my subconscious answer about whether or not to pick it back up??) If you clicked over from her blog, thanks for stopping by to visit! Feel free to look around and read some of my past posts, one of my favorites is a true story of how I once accidentally chewed my husband's toenails. (For real.)
Now - I'm off to empty the dishwasher...
