What's in a Blog?

In this past year, I did an experiment. I regularly went to coffee shops on a Thursday night or Sunday morning and pulled up Blogger, and got my fingers tap-tap-tapping away on blog posts. I certainly managed to be more regular with my blogs than in previous years. But in the last couple of months, this practice stalled. I found myself unable to write much of anything, much less a blog, and activity here on the blog died down to silence. Today, on the last day of 2017, I felt compelled to break that silence.

These days I seem to find my voice more easily on camera, and I'm far more likely to sit down in front of my camera to do a vlog than I am to pull up my laptop and start writing a blog. I find that I'm feeling drawn to stop putting words down into documents, because I want those words to come to me when I sit down to journal, write poetry, or write for my upcoming Morrigan book. Blogging is taking that energy that I would normally have for writing, and quite frankly, I need those words for other places right now.

If you are the type of person who prefers to sit down with a cup of tea or coffee and read your way through the recent experiences or inspirations of the pagan community, then I'm afraid you may find that your enjoyment of my blog ends here. I do intend to keep blogging, but I am not going to be committing myself to a regular schedule like I attempted to do this year. In 2018, my word of the year is Precision, and I'm pointing myself in the right directions of where I want to go, and what I want to do, and aiming true. Blogging is not my radar, and if I feel inspired to write a blog, I will do so, but it will not be in my regular commitment schedule.

I do hope that many of you will continue to check in from time to time here, but if you would like, you can stay in touch with me in may other ways on the internet. My YouTube channel of course, will probably remain my most active platform, with Instagram and Facebook as close seconds. You can find the links to those on the Connect With Me page.

I hope that 2017 has brought you joy, happiness, and amazing experiences, and I hope that 2018 will bring those to you as well. All the best in the New Year peeps!

Much love, and blessed be.
