I started this blog because I was bored at work.
I was 23 and working a corporate job sitting in a grey cubicle all day. I’d never much considered that I needed a creative outlet but there I found myself, reading blogs everyday and wondering…could I do that too? Would writing be a good time filler between conference calls and spreadsheets? And it was. It filled a void in my post-college life that I didn’t even know I had and helped me stay sane during a time when I had little money, few friends (on this coast), and too much time on my hands. Read my very first post here.
Fast forward to 2017, a year that I averaged about one blog post per month after basically falling out of the blogging game in 2016. I’ve always felt my creativity ebb and flow. I’ve written most during periods of my life with more work flexibility or times of my life with less professional satisfaction. Sometimes I’ve simply been too busy enjoying my personal life to make time to come to this space (like this year).
But then time goes by and I start to miss it. My “Blog Post Ideas” list on my phone fills up. I read other blog posts (as I always do – I’ve never stopped being a blog reader) and remember…oh yeah, I can do that!
All this to say, I’m jumping back into this thing in 2018. I’ve said that before but I think this time it’ll stick.
Instead of pressuring myself to pump out five post a week (ah, the good ol’ days…), I’ll be around 2-3 times a week. As always, this blog will be filled with topics relevant to my actual life. That now includes motherhood but still includes so many of the things I’ve loved sharing here in my pre-kid days.
So four blog names (yes, four) and nearly six years later, I’ve still got more to say. Cheers if you’re still here and most of all, THANK YOU.
Want to help me kick this off in the right direction? I’d love to know what you’d like to see more of or any other feedback you have. Please leave a comment below if anything comes to mind.
