Every year I pay for all the various things attached to my blog.
Every year I wonder why.
Why am I paying for this service when I barely blog anymore? There was a time when I was posting every single day. It was one of my favorite things to help me sort my thoughts and keep myself up to date all the time. It isn’t as though this blog has a giant amount of followers, and it has almost always just been a thing for me.
I look at all the different social media platforms I am a part of and in truth all of them are pretty much an easier way to have this blog that I used to keep on a regular basis. But with more interactivity. There are more people with whom to share and have them see what I am doing on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram. There are more people to read and comment and like or dislike what I have to say.
That has a very strong appeal. But it is also exhausting some days and doesn’t serve the purpose that I originally had for this blog, for this idea of having an online presence. It was initially a place for me to write. For me to think. For me to just be okay with being me no matter how boring that me was on a daily basis to others.
I want to say I am going to pick right back up and just jump into the deep end and start blogging every day, but I think that all the time in my head and it never turns out that way in reality.
But I want to see what happens when I try.
