A Return to Blogging

So I know I pretty much fell off the grid by the end of last year. I didn’t mean to, it just sort of happened. This was in large part due to the fact that the laptop I was using was awful and pretty much gave up the ghost, and I had started working and didn’t really have the time for it. I have missed blogging and the community immensely in the time that I have been away. I have missed it all so much I recently went out and bought a laptop so that I could try and dip my toes back into the world and online happenings.

Blogging becomes a part of your life. I never felt that it was an obligation to do or anything, and I have been doing it for years, but I think maybe my hiatus was needed. Moving abroad has been a big thing, and settling into life has been a challenge. It was expected for sure, but many other things in my life took a knock – primarily blogging. I would like to think that I have gotten back to a semblance of normality, and I now have a laptop that actually (shockingly) works, so I am back. I have been watching loads of things recently, and reading, and even giving audiobooks a shot. So I have things I want to talk about! I want to get back to reading what everyone else has been checking out and enjoying and just getting back in touch with people in general.

I have missed the community. I have missed blogging. I have missed you guys.

So over the next few weeks I am looking to get involved again, posting again, reading about what’s been cracking with everyone and just get up to speed. I have my leftover Blind Spot movies from last year in my drafts box and will post them, and will potentially take up new Blind Spots for this year (as I already had a list on the go). Probably not though, as we are halfway through February already. Loads of things to work on! So let me end this here and just get back to it.

  1. I think I speak for us all when we say we miss you too!
    I did the exact same when I took an extended hiatus – I bought a new dinky little laptop for inspiration. It’s worked for me so far. Can’t wait to read your posts 🙂

    • Awwwww, thank you 😊

      That’s what I’m hoping for! I remember you were gone awhile and then gradually returned, and scrolling through posts today it looks like you’re doing your thing again 🙂

      • It’s weird when you take a break though, for a while you’re grateful that you aren’t panicking about posting regularly, but then at the same time you miss everyone else’s posts and miss finding those hidden gem movies you’d have never even known about!

      • Right? Like, it’s nice to not have to think about what to write about something, but then you find that you are so out of whack with what is going on at the movies, what there is to watch, whether something is worth watching, etc.

  2. Really exciting to see one of my longtime favorite bloggers make a glorious return! 🙂 Breaks are essential to keep the motivation levels high, they’re like a little reset button. I slowed down big time last year, posting maybe 2 to 3 entries a month and kind of rode that for awhile. And I guess yeah, January and May last year I didn’t post anything at all. But in those moments all I could do was think about how I was going to come back with a vengeance! Haha! Hashtag obsessed.

    • Awwww thanks Tom! I’m really excited to be back!

      I recall you blogged a lot and then less and then none and then sporadically you posted and then more consistently.

      Love it! Great to come back and see you’re still around.

      Hashtag obsessed 🤣
