I have tried three or four times to try this blogging thing again. I have written posts of “Here we go again”. And I have failed at each attempt. I had a bit of an epiphany the other day. I’ve been trying so hard to recreate what I’ve been doing, that I’ve failed to realise I can’t anymore. I started out anonymous and with nothing to lose. Now, however, everyone time I talk about someone or something, so many people know exactly what I’m talking about. I can not be open and honest, and honestly, it sucks. I’ve had people tell me that I should ignore this and do it anyway, for me. But the truth of it is that I’m not like that. There have been instances where I’ve written anyway and watched the chaos ensue, with everything breaking around it. I’ve also been pretty lazy. Maybe lazy is the wrong word. I’ve been busy with so many other things, that by the time I start thinking about blogging, I’m too tired and need to give my mind a break. I also don’t want to remove my content. I’ve seen other blogs create new versions as time has gone on, but I want this part of my life there. I can’t justify it, but It’s seems necessary for me. It was such a life-changing part, that I don’t want it gone. My only alternative is evolution.
I’m not going to create a new design, nor change anything besides the content actually, but it will hopefully change. I’ll add a category here and there and write more of things that interest me. This way, I also don’t need to create an all new blog for that particular reason. So, I’ll talk about a wider range of things that I’m passionate about. All except photography which now has its own special home.
But why? Why do I even need the alternative? Why keep it at all? Because I have a reputation. I know that sounds completely narcissistic, but it’s true. I’ve influenced others to starts blogging and I’m still considered a blogger. So much so that I’ve been included in an awesome competition this weekend involing the Table Bay Hotel. I find it almost unfair that I was chosen. But I have a good following on Twitter and technically, I am a blooger. So why the hell not. This has also kick-started a revival, as I bloody want to win!
So here’s to the umpteenth time of me restarting blogging… Let’s see how this goes…
