Two months ago I wrote a post about my personal and blogging goals for March. And then I stopped blogging. At first I thought it was just a natural break from blogging. I take a lot of those 😉
But it wasn’t. I went on a social media break and realized that I don’t want to be a blogger anymore – at least not officially.
I don’t want to write to an audience. I want to write to my journal.
I don’t want be active on social media. I want to post something when I feel like sharing.
I don’t want to pay attention to keywords. I want to record thoughts and memories.
There are SO MANY THINGS that I just do not like about blogging. And, deep down I know that’s the cause of my many niche changes and multiple blogging breaks.
If blogging was simply building a website that reflects my personality or style and filling it with my words. I would be all set.
But it’s the “business of blogging” that I can’t get into. In my ideal blogging life, I would write, publish, and respond to a few comments by the small group of cool people that stop by. That’s it.
It’s the end of my blog as I know it.
And I feel fine…
I already made a lot of changes that will make me virtually invisible to the online world. However, I am keeping this site public with a functioning RSS feed – so a small few may still find me.
The future of this space is open to whatever it becomes. I have visions of journal entries (which may not differ from a blog post) and digital scrapbooks of trips and life events I want to remember.
I will not say goodbye to blogging forever. Let’s face it! I change my mind a lot. But for now….
