I've taken an unintentional hiatus from blogging lately. In fact, this year has been my most inconsistent year of blogging since I started this blog seven years ago.
With many of my blog friends now retired, my motivation waned. And it seemed like many of the remaining active blogs that I read wrote posts that regularly started with "I've partnered with..." or "This post is sponsored by..."
No offense to those bloggers, but I feel like they lost authenticity when they wrote "those" kinds of posts too often. And after reading one too many of them, I lost interest blogging altogether. For awhile I even contemplated entering blog retirement myself.
But I recently came across this article that lists 10 reasons why one should blog. And except for number seven, they all apply to me. After reading this post, I found a desire to start blogging again.
So this post is (hopefully) my return to the blogging community. If you're been reading for a while, thanks for sticking around. While I can't commit to daily posts, I hope to write at least once a week.
Please hold me to it.
