Going Back to Where It Started

As you can see I haven't been blogging here much lately. Although when I started this new blog I had so many expectations, plans, and hopes for my new little space. I wanted to be more active in my blogging groups, I wanted to be pumping 3 posts each week without missing a beat, I wanted to be on top of my social media strategy, and I wanted to grow as a blogger. It seems like I've taken 100 steps back from those original goals. In the beginning, it worked out for me then with the semester load and new things happening in my life. I let this space slip away and now I've been in a writing rut.

Blogging has become so much pressure for me that's not what it was when I originally started blogging on Happiness With A Side Of Tea. It was fun and it was something I was passionate about. I slipped into comparison and comparing myself to other bloggers and thinking well if she can juggle all that then why can't I. Truth is we're all completely different some people manage time and stress better than others. I'm a procrastinator when it comes to anything somedays I just can't deal. That doesn't make me less than I am and it doesn't make me horrible either.

A few days ago I was reading through my old blog. I saw all the things I had to say and all the feedback that was returned. I want to get back to that. I want to start blogging because it's something I'm passionate about. I don't want to get suck into comparison and thinking I should do this because everyone else is doing it. I want to start writing about topics that I think need to be shared not because it just went along with the season. So I'm going to get back to that. You can be expecting me to crawl out of my pity party and be blogging about things that matter to me. I'm sad it took me forever to realize this. However, I will be back fresh and ready to start writing again.
