The history of my blog is sporadic at best. My faithful friends and readers know that I started my blog shortly after my 50th birthday and kept it going for several years. I loved that time on my blog. I met many interesting bloggers and felt the joy of a new creative outlet.
Life changes and as I got closer to my 53rd birthday I hit a wall with my blog and unintentionally let it slip into memory. I did not wake up and decide to stop blogging, I ran out of things to say and felt too overwhelmed with my writer’s block to even say I was taking a break.
During February 2018 I found the desire to once again share my thoughts on a blog platform. It is probably obvious to my regular readers that some months have been easier to post on the blog than others. The challenge of working full time, keeping up with outside interests and obligations, and being disciplined with my blogging have kept my posts erratic. I know that this is not the way to keep readers interested or for anyone to know what to expect from my writing.
So, as 2018 draws to a close and 2019 is fast approaching, I thought long and hard about the blog. I have decided to keep the blog going, yay! I need to express myself in writing. I also know that my thoughts and experiences often resonate with others and that I can be of some service and inspiration to those who are in a similar place on their life journey.
Posting once a week may be a bit of a stretch for my schedule. So, I will post once more before the New Year and then aim for a post on the 1st Monday of every month. The exception being that I may post more often at the beginning of January to get the ball rolling. I addition, I will try to share more on Facebook and Instagram to stay in contact with my followers. If you are a friend on my personal FB account, look for me more on The Next 50 years rather than my personal page if you want to know what’s up with me. 🙂
So that’s the scoop. It is a goal for 2019 to be more consistent even if that means posting less frequently.
Talk to you soon!
Until next time,
