As you can see its been a while since I’ve “put pen to paper” and written on my blog. A part of it was I was getting bored. Writing just to write hasn’t ever been my thing- I’m more of a chatty, 2 way street, discussion sort of person. So writing just one side of a conversation I’m having in my head is sort of odd.
Being lazy was another big part of it – coming up with ideas and content about things people might care about is harder then one thinks. I found myself “writing” posts in my head but I never bothered to record any of it.
Lastly, and probably the hardest to admit, and possibly for a reader to believe – I feel like my life isn’t exciting enough to warrant talking about it. Yes, I do live in another country – but its normal now. We live our normal life – work, cooking, sorting out the house. Plus the UK is pretty similar to the US so it’s not a massively drastic change. Honestly I find myself thinking a lot – who wants to read about my life – I work in an office 5 days a week, I cook at home most nights and we watch TV and Netflix. And not even interesting, controversial shows. I’m currently on season 3 of Bones watching it right through.
But since coming home from our holiday to the US, I’ve woken up to the fact that most people’s lives are a lot like mine and they blog about it. They have social media empires based on lives possibly more dreary then mine. And plus why not? If I can make my readers laugh on occasion or think, or just give them a break from their day to day to read about my day to day – then I will have done something.
Plus when I do get busy or get to do exciting things I can write about it here! So here’s to 2018 and blogging and instagramming and building my social media town (I’m a long way off from an empire).
