It was no trick I attempted to pull when I announced the ending of my blogging days. I had burned out and needed a break. It seemed like a fitting time to stop. Consequently, I deleted all of my prior blog content and pictures and had no intention of returning.
But the time away and purging of my blog was quite cathartic and gave me some much needed clarity and closure to some issues and things that had resulted from my five years of blogging. And, honestly, I did not realize how much blogging had become a part of me. I missed it and felt like I had left an important part of me behind.
I also underestimated my connection with so many of my blogger friends and followers, as I received e-mail after e-mail expressing disappointment at the discontinuation of my blog. It was, and is, quite humbling.
So, I’m giving myself (and maybe some of you if this was a place you once enjoyed visiting) a treat: I’m returning to blogging, with no set goals, direction, plans or intent; just me and my web space, figuring it out as we go along.
The person I was when I started this blog is not the person that I am today. I have changed so much, perhaps both for the better in some ways, and the worse in others.
I hope those who followed along before will come back, and perhaps a few new visitors will grace this blog with their presence.
What have I got to offer that a bazillion and one other bloggers don’t? I have no idea. Let’s find out together, shall we?
