I was looking back over this blog the other day and realised that I started it up a little over a year ago. A whole year has passed and I hadn’t even noticed – in my mind it was more like 6 months.
On the plus side, for the most part I liked what I read – I’ve had a fair few fun experiences and the blog has documented them nicely for me. For someone who was previously in several consecutive wrong relationships which really lacked fun, it was very much reassuring to see I have broken that mould.
It did however, get me to wondering why I still write the blog. When I started I was miserable and I wanted to use it as way to take control of my life and force myself to be the person I want to be. To a certain extent I still use it for that purpose, though more as a comfort blanket. I think what it represents now is reassurance that I can achieve things – no matter how small they are.
So why do other people write blogs? Many of them seem to be like mine, random ramblings of individuals with nothing more to talk about than their every day lives so are we all depressed or are we all in control?
It’s something I could go on thinking about forever but for now, that’s all I’ll say. I just wanted to make you guys think about it too and maybe share what you use as your control mechanisms and comfort blankets. x
One thought on “Blink and you miss it…a year that is!”
I’ve only been blogging for 6 months or so, but it’s something I now rely on. I would have never believed you if you told me a few months ago I’d be a regular blogger! I never liked the idea of just putting my thoughts out there, but that’s what blogging has taught me–to put it all out there and make no excuses 🙂
