Tis the season to find myself again~
Welcome to Blogmas 2021! It has been 2 years since my last Blogmas and I have decided to give it another go. So, to address the elephant in the room, why did I stop Blogmas? Well, it was a lot of things that you could probably piece together from my blog posts of the last 2 years. In 2019, I had just moved to a new state, was in an unhealthy relationship, a job that really messed with my mental health, and I had no friends to do stuff with for the most part. 2020 on the other hand, I got into a healthier relationship, was dealing with creative burnout, and also dealing with my schedule going from lonely and empty to incredibly active and busy.
This year I think I have finally leveled out. I am working a job that has way more respect for my personal space and offers me more creative freedom without the unrealistic quantity expectations. I am still in that healthy relationship that has also helped me connect with a lot of great people. And I am more aware of my surroundings now and feel like I am actually able to do things that could inspire me to write again. So I decided that Blogmas was a good thing to attempt this year because…why not?
So what can you expect from Blogmas this year? Well, for starters, hopefully more than 1 post…haha! I have this really bad tendency of being a bit manic with my inspiration. I go into a project like “YES! I am doing this. I am getting this going again. Nothing is going to stop me!” then I fall off after being good for like 2 weeks. And this isn’t with blogging alone, it is with most things which is a toxic trait that I really need to work on. But, aside from my wishy-washy posting habits, I also hope to include a lot of good content that calls back to previous years of Blogmas as well as inviting in new ideas that have been floating around in my head lately!
I plan to touch on everything from personal updates to mental health to lifestyle content to maybe even some holiday activities and traveling again! I have really missed doing that kind of content. Plus, now that I post a lot of my adventures on Tik Tok, I feel like I can add an extra layer of engagement to my posts that transcends pictures alone.
Overall, I am excited to get started again, but also plan to be patient with myself because falling back into a routine I had when my life was way different than it is now is going to take some time!
