How are you? Last week flew by in a whirlwind! I have been enjoying my time back at blogging (haha – for two weeks now!) but at the same time, I am wondering where I want to take this blog. Right now, it’s a mishmash of things – talk of travel, taking part in challenges and zillions of photos of places I’ve been. But perhaps it’s getting a bit boring?
What I do know is that I still have no interest in trying to monetize my blog nor do I have a goal of attracting thousands of visitors. I guess that’s a start. I have no talent for poetry, so I’m not going to attempt to go that way either. I have many things I would like to rail on about but I’d rather this was a feel-good blog, so let’s forget that too. I don’t want to write in Finnish, so that’s a no-no as well.
I would still like to talk about travel in the sense of recommending places of interest to the audience out there. I would also like to talk briefly about books, as now that my studies are over, I have rekindled my love for reading. However I’m not looking into starting a book blog as I’ve tried that and got tired of writing endless reviews which limited my reading time and stressed me out – which no hobby should do.
I find interacting with others and finding fun connections an extremely important aspect of blogging, so I hope to continue that. It seems that some of the bloggers who were around nine months ago aren’t here anymore so hopefully new friends will emerge. Saying that, I was happy to reconnect with familiar faces, so not all has changed after all.
I know I’ve written a similar post to this a while back, musing over (almost) the same thoughts. I guess I don’t have to make a decision now and can just see which direction this blog starts to take now that it’s up and running again.
What I have done, during my break, was change the name of the blog. This caused me months of messages with Facebook as apparently my chosen name was against their rules. But in the end, for some reason, they gave in and I succeeded in what I thought was an impossible feat.
Last but not least, I’d like to share with you something that resonated with me very strongly. A fellow blogger, Lex from One Foot Out the Door wrote that their hiking guide in Bhutan said this: “Karma does not mean good or bad luck; rather, karma simply takes us where we are meant to go or be.” ❤
How do you keep your blogging interesting? How has your blog evolved over time?
Wishing you all a good start to the week!
