Changes for 2023

Hello friends!

Now that blogmas is officially over…it’s time to talk about 2023!

I feel like the new year is always a time to reflect on the past and make changes for the future. I normally try to do a lot of planning for my blog events around this time of year, and I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog in particular.

I started blogging in 2017, but I didn’t get serious about it until 2018. I’ve been blogging for a while, and while I wish I could say I’ve enjoyed every second of it, that just isn’t true. I’ve been through a lot of changes during the 6 years I’ve been blogging. I mean, I almost spent my entire teenage hood on here. But overall, this blog holds some of my best memories.

But over the past year, I feel like blogging didn’t feel the same as it used to. I began stressing more and posting less. I was looking back at my archives from a few Decembers ago, and I was remembering how much fun I used to have with blogging.

I want to recapture that feeling again. I don’t want to feel guilty for not posting content that my readers might like, or like I’m supposed to post every week.

So basically, my goal with blogging this year is to have more fun with it. I will still try to post every Friday at 3 pm, but honestly? I have no idea what my schedule will look like.

For the most part, I’m not going to put any stock into promises I may have made in the past. I know I’ve talked a lot about Back in the Day, and honestly? I have no idea when/if I will post it. I’m not going to stress about blogging, so if I’m not having fun with something, I’m just going to not do it. Like with Aftershock….I kept promising it to you guys and it took me nine months to deliver. I don’t want to do that again.

Don’t get me wrong, I still intend to do a lot of the things I’ve talked about in the past. The first thing I want to get to is Bella’s wedding. Ideally, that will be a week-long event, but I at least want to do a post sometime in the month of January/February.

I also still want to continue with some established series, like Skipping Stones and BABAD.

Anyway, all this to say is that I’m extremely burnt out with blogging and I need a change. If I haven’t fixed my burn out by March, y’all, make me take a hiatus.

Speaking of hiatuses, I think I’ll be taking a brief one in early January. I want to enjoy my winter break and start out the semester on the right foot, so if I don’t post for a week or two, just know I’ll be back soon!

I feel like this post didn’t have much of a point, but oh well. You guys know everything you need to know. xD

See you in 2023!

  1. Posting should be a fun way to spend your time so if you ever feel you need times away it OK to take time way to focus on other things and if you think your not interested in what your posting start a new blog your your interests! But whatever you do I’m sure your content will be amazing as it always is! So please cut yourself some slack and don’t feel guilty!
