Things can slip away from you when you are not paying attention. Bit by bit. Piece by piece. Until you are standing somewhere you don’t recognise. Blogs can be like that. A blog can be eroded by things that you think you should do, instead of gaining strength from what you want to do.
I no longer wish to grow my blog. That’s one thing that I learnt while I was away. So I don’t need to do things like share my posts on twitter multiple times, or post every day or build my social media following.
I only want to post something if I am really proud of it. Too often I’d just put up an image, even if it wasn’t a particularly good one and write a rambling post. And now, I won’t. I hope I will post several days a week, but it might be one or it might be none. But everything I put up I will be happy with.
I am going to be on social media to be there. I am there to have fun. I am there to share things that I create so that people will connect with them. So I’m no longer worried about the conversation happening on my blog. I am using social media as a digital publishing medium rather than a link following medium.
I hope that after all of that I will be back in my own house. Not outside of it, wondering where the hell I left my keys.
