The thing about blogging, and then not blogging for a while is that, when you want to come back to the blog, you feel like you need to explain why you haven’t been updating.
You see the thing is, sometimes I think I know too much. Back when I started this blog… there weren’t really any rules for blogging. You just sort of started an online diary and chronicled your adventures however–and whenever you wanted.
I mean seriously, there are certain TIMES you should post your blog.
You see what I mean about too much? That much pressure for something I started back in ’05 with little or no plans to make it into anything. I’m always reading that you should take time to make your blog about something– find a topic and write about that.
But I don’t have a topic… I mean… unless you count me.
Can I be a topic? That’s a little narcissistic, don’t you think?
So, I started thinking about it, and I realized something… I am thinking too much. I spent a lot of 2011 thinking too much. The only times 2011 rocked? When I actually didn’t think.
So, from now on– I’m going to update what I want, when I want. I’m throwing the rules out the window. If I want to write an 8,000 word essay on my new favorite color of nail polish (how freakin’ cute is that color, btw?) then guess what? I am going for it!
If this means I lose readers, I am okay with that. If this means I gain readers? Well, then maybe I will prove all those experts wrong, eh?
Either way… I started this blog because I wanted to have a little outlet for all things me. And in 2012, I am bringing it back to the roots*.
If you want to join me, I’d love to have you. But if you don’t… I understand. It’s hard to break the rules!
*Every time I say or think the word Roots, all I can think about is my Junior History teacher, and how instead of actually teaching us anything, we just watched it OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
