Finding my way back…

I can’t believe that it’s been almost a year since I’ve posted anything on my little blog.

Such a long time has passed!

There are a few reasons why, but mainly (and sadly) work got in the way. Long, busy days made me a very tired outdoor worker and, at the end of the day, I had no time or energy left to blog and post.

Also, I found it hard to find stimulation and maintain the excitement for blogging, compared to how I felt when I started. It became all too easy not to bother, or to feel (within myself) that what I was publishing had become a bit repetatively boring to others.

That didn’t help, when coupled with the lack of energy and drive, to post an interesting anecdote.

However, over the past few months, I’ve begun to feel bit of a void in my life, and have really missed blogging. I’ve realised that blogging gave me an extra push to get outside, and to take photographs of the beautiful areas I visit, both in work and with my family. I also missed the lovely way that a blog gave me a happiness to share my experiences with a much wider community, and formed a “sort-of” diary of the wonderful family memories we create on our adventures.

With encouragement from my husband, I decided to get back in front of the screen, and actually make the time for blogging again.

The wild card in the pack is that my daughter is older now, and so our adventures are getting a bit more daring and exciting!!

  1. Welcome back Kim, you’ve been missed. I think many of us hit a plateau when we feel blogging is a chore or it has taken over. You’ve done the best thing by taking a break and finding out if you missed the activity and the sharing that blogging gives. I’m glad you found you did.
