Ummm.....Hi

That was quite the social media break(ish), wasn't it? 
I haven't been on here since October, even then it wasn't much of a post. Not long after that I decided to take a break from social media, not completely, but a break non the less. I put my Fb profile to very private, stopped posting on there. I stopped tweeting and only posted on Instagram sporadically.

Why?

I got sick of the negativity.

I've always been a big fan of social media, I've made some good friends through it, but it can be a very negative pit to fall into. That's what I found myself doing. Besides that, I had been to a conference and didn't feel like I fit. There were some great people to meet, but mostly I felt out of place and couldn't wait to get back to my hotel and chill on my own. 

That left me questioning what I wanted from this blog. As I've written in the past, I don't want to be an influencer. I don't want to write about products, or places, unless I've paid money for them and can give a totally honest opinion. So, what does that leave me with? Writing about myself, that's what. Do people really want to read that? I've since realised that it doesn't matter.

That also brings me nicely around to my opinions, am I brave enough to share them? It's that negativity thing again. Sharing an opinion on anything leaves you exposed to abuse, I'm all for open discussion, sharing opinions, but abuse? Nope, not up for that.

Why am I back now? Honestly, I don't know, I just felt it again. I thinking the turning of a new decade spurred something in me. I woke up to a lot, in the past 10 years, my life has changed so completely, but that's for another post.

I can't say I'll write regularly, or eloquently, but I think my blog will continue.

So, I guess the only question I have is, are you ready for a new decade of my ramblings?

  3. Lovely to see you back blogging again. You know I love your blog because you are so real and honest. I have about 8 blog posts in my drafts which I'm scared to post because they could open me up to the negativity but I'm going to be brave and share them this year. Eek!
