Okay, so I haven't really been away from it for that long. Maybe a couple of months, though it feels much longer. I think I figured out part of that "much longer" feeling, thanks to my dear friend Ana. I was talking to her about all these thoughts about missing blogging, and about how I just felt sort of lost and frustrated because I could never quite figure out what I wanted my blog to be. And she said something that really hit home. She said that to her, it seemed as if I'd sort of lost my footing when I quit writing at "nothing of importance." And there it was. So simple. She was absolutely right.
I quit writing at "nothing of importance" for a multitude of reasons. Second-guessing that decision now is pointless. I'm not sure why things went haywire after that though. I started new blogs, hoping to make some sort of better new home for myself. One of those situations where you're desperately searching for what's right in front of you.
So here we go again...yep, I'm back, still with nothing of importance to say. :) And this time around, I've made a few promises to myself:
*I can talk about whatever the hell I want to talk about.
*Said another way, I not going to try to make myself fit into any neat category.
*I do not have to make my way through my reader before I'm allowed to post myself.
*And similarly, I am not going to feel guilty when the dreaded "mark all as read" button needs to be used. There will be times in life, such as now, when that happens more frequently than I'd like...but I must learn to deal with it.
*This is it--no starting any new blogs. If I can't make this work for me, then I just need to stop trying.
Home sweet home...I hope this is it.
