"Where have you been?" is a question that I have found myself answering more and more lately. I am questioned by followers, family and even co workers. Sometimes I go into detail about the issues that I've been faced with over the past year other times I shrug my shoulder and give a slight grin in hopes that would suffice as an answer.
It's hard answering a question to others when you haven't truly answered the question to yourself. I honestly had to take a break from blogging to focus on me. I know I know there are super bloggers who get married, have children and even face life threatening illnesses and somehow doesn't miss a beat on the blog scene.
I am NOT those bloggers I AM human and I am a blogger that takes Breaks! I would love to be some kind of super blogger where my life is just free from stress but hey the way my life is set up....it just doesn't happen that way.
I questioned myself did I really want to continue blogging?. Do people still read blogs? I mean I know for sure that I do however I can't speak for the rest of the world. In all honesty I had to remember why I started blogging and it wasn't for fame or fortune. it was for encouragement....PERIOD. I didn't care if 1 or 1 million people read my blog. I just wanted to encourage someone the way I was encouraged when I read gabifresh for the first time.
That feeling was amazing, I stayed up for almost 24 hours in an attempt to read her entire blog. I remembered how happy I would be when one of my favorite bloggers would comment back to a comment that I had made on their blog.
I guess you can say I'm in this blogging thing for the long haul. So if you are out there and you're reading THANK YOU FOR STICKING BY MYSIDE.
