Why do I blog?

I decided to have  a bit of blog break as I couldn’t find my motivation to write posts for a while. I felt I had nothing to say on this platform. I felt other people were saying exactly what I wanted to in better ways.  So I focused on sharing what I was reading on Twitter.

This has been great as I felt I connected a bit more on Twitter by commenting and replying to posts.

I think I’ve been more conscious of how I use my time and how I want to articulate my thoughts.

I don’t think of myself as a blogger. Yes, I have a blog, but I don’t use it for anything other than recording and sharing my own thoughts. I don’t want it to be anything more than that really. I’ve been following some new-to-me bloggers and vloggers and I think I got a little bored. So many have similar content. The ones I love have their own rules and niche. They are interesting and insightful. I don’t think I’m one of those either, but if I was aiming for anything it would be to be talking about the things that matter to me.

So I’ve taken the pressure off myself and that has felt nice.  I feel like I do want to keep blogging though. I’m just not going to set a schedule. When I think I want to say or share something I will.  I’m not going to worry about photos or length. I am just going to focus on what I want to say.

I want to talk about depression and mental health.

I want to share my opinions and show my thought process.

I want to share photos of my cats, coffee, and yummy food.

I want to have a space to express myself as myself.

So that is what I’m going to do.
