I used to have a tab open at all times in Chrome just for my blog’s dashboard.
Yesterday I realized that I hadn’t even logged onto my laptop in five days. And when I did log on, I opened Chrome to find no blog tab.
In other words, I haven’t checked in on my own blog in like a week.
That’s a pretty good sign that this isn’t where my head is right now.
There are a million reasons I haven’t been here. I do have a few post ideas; I even have a few long-term development ideas.
I just have no impetus to post.
I’ve been busy with other things. My new job is pretty brain-consuming. I come home from work and want to work out, eat, play with my dog, see David, and go to bed.
Blogging isn’t on that list.
And I have other things going in my life that need sorting out, and I have personal goals that I want to work on, for no reason other than to make myself happy.
That’s right — I have stuff I want to accomplish just for me, outside of the blog, and I don’t want to blog about them even if they’re fitness-related.
I am not hanging the blog out to dry, however; it will stay up.
I just may not post anything for long periods of time. Like a few weeks. Or a month.
I’m OK with that. And I’m OK with losing readers.
Because if I rededicate myself to this project — to blogging — it will be with a focus more closely related to why I started it to being with:
To write for myself, for my own need to reflect.
So I will still be around on social media. The Following Fit facebook page will still exist, and I will post pictures and updates and maybe some interesting links to that page.
And my instagram feed will still be full of Bertha, cats, and food.
But I am not going to post anything here unless I feel something needs to be said. My posts are going to be infrequent, but I intend the few that do come to fruition to be worth your time.
And worth mine.
