Over the year I've been absent, you (if there are still any yous out there) may have wondered:
Where has she been?
What is going on?
Why is she blogging? (is it still called blogging?!)
and for those of you who accidentally stumbled upon this blog looking for something else entirely:
Who are you?!
Let me answer the last question first: I'm Whitney and I'm back! You'll have to stick around to find out more about me from my blog if you really want to know!
As for the other questions, maybe this little blurb will answer those pressing questions (because we ALL have them!)
To start, I really can't remember why I originally started blogging in 2010. I just wanted to share! Is that so wrong? One thing I can remember though, is that I actually enjoyed the blogging process for some time (3 years guys!!). Then as if someone suddenly turned off a light, my joy for blogging stopped. I was done. I tried to keep it going for a while, but it (and let's be honest....life) felt strained and overwhelming. I was burned out and desperately searching for something, anything to talk about that mattered. But I couldn't find it. I was lost. So one day, I just stopped. Not only did I stop blogging but I even stopped reading many of the blogs that for one reason or another inspired me to blog. I felt some relief for a while. No more blog responsibility for me! No more connection. Whitney out!
I hung out around Facebook for a while, then got bored. Not my thing. But then I discovered Instagram. Ah Instagram! There I reconnected with friends AND bloggers I had missed out on for some time. They inspired me to search out new and exciting ideas, places, etc. Only then did I feel the void my blogging hiatus had left.
Then a year later a friend and fellow blogger decided to start up her own blog and she inspired me to be brave and take on this blog monster again (check her blog out at: simplyfinelife.com).
So that's what I'm doing! I'm trying to be brave and starting up this blog once again.
With that being said, I'm looking forward to reconnecting with those of whom I've lost along the way and starting anew!
Because every day brings a new adventure! Why not start now?
