Hello friends. I have returned. I am not sure what happened. Well, I do know what happened. Work happened. Around March, I was approaching a go-live date for a big project I had been working on for several months and a lot of my focus went on that (cause it's what pays the bills) and the ol' blog had to take a back seat for a minute. That minute, of course, turned into a four month hiatus. Oops!
Blogging, while a creative outlet for me, requires a lot of effort to be consistent and plan out content. Especially when you have a full time job that at times can be very demanding. The last thing I want to do during my evenings or on the weekends is sit in front of a computer and type. #realtalk
While I always had the blog on my mind, I couldn't get myself to sit down and type. Either I wasn't inspired or I would set the bar to high, comparing myself to other full time bloggers, and talk myself out of it. (This happens more often than I care to admit.) But the more I thought about it and talked about it with the Mr., the more it was like "Vicky, you need to sit down and just do it". Don't wait until you have the perfect post with the perfect picture. If I wait for that to happen in order to start, the four month hiatus will turn into a twelve month hiatus.
So here I am. Taking that first step of writing a post. Getting the creative juices flowing. There is no better time than the present.
P.S. If you read this and want to give a sista a lil' words of encouragement, please leave me a comment :) K. Thx.
