And the first half flew by.

If “I didn’t see it coming” was a year, it’s definitely 2020. I wouldn’t have believed anyone if they told me I would literally sit on my butt for almost a whole half year. And not just me but the whole world. So, in the events of things we didn’t see coming, I am adding revisiting my blog to the list.

I miss this place and all the things I did with it. The hard work I put into it. The love I once had for it. The rewards I relished from it. The common question in the blogosphere (I miss that word) these days is, “Do people still read blogs?” And that single question has put me on pause for over a year.

So, my re-strategizing involves, first, knowing that I’m doing this not for thousands or for even hundreds. But if just one person can read, understand and relate to it, then I’m happy. More than happy.

This time, it will be different. It’s not going to be all hair and beauty. I’ll write as my soul feels. Some parts escapism and some parts immersion. I mean, I still love a good lipstick and still think crochet pins are a work of art. Lol. But I’m ready to bare myself a bit more. Be a little more open. Like in a new relationship where you’re trying not to project old fears.

So, if you’ve read up to this point, we’re now in a relationship and you’re special to me. You really are. Thank you.

See you soon in a pool of me battling my insecurities and all the walls I want to put down. Oh, there will be tips and life hacks too.

    I’m excited and anticipate the things you would be posting. I also just went back to my back last week sunday and I had the same exact fear of do people still read blogs. But you know what as you said even if it’s for that one person I would keep writing. Just know you’ve found one reader, cause I’m glued already.

    I’m excited already and I anticipate all the goodies you would be dropping here. I’m also in the same shoes as you cause I went back to my blog I abandoned for 3 years. I also have the same fear that people don’t read blogs anymore. But you know what I would take your advise and write from my soul for that one reader that would love it. And just know that you’ve found one reader in me, cause I’m glued to this site already.

Just know you’ve found a reader in me because I’m glued to this page already.
