The Blogger Returnth...

When starting off this post I was very suddenly caught in how to start. Yes writing a Blog post is nothing new to me but after my long hiatus I was left wondering how to begin again.

First off I should explain why I ended up taking nearly a year off from my digital space. The main reason was work. I'd started working full time and with my workload growing all the time there was just not enough hours in the day. My bloggo was starting to become a chore and extra work which was the complete opposite to my reasons to start my bloggo back in 2012.

Another reason was I had started to not know what I wanted my voice to be on here. I was trying to be what I thought other people wanted to read and not what I wanted to do. I also quickly realised that I was starting to sound like every other blogger out there clinging onto the bandwagon.

I pride myself in not doing the expected thing and choosing what I know I want and what's good for me. I've always been someone who listens to there gut instinct but my gut had gone mute in the run up to my hiatus.

I needed a break to regroup. I intended to take the summer away and come back full of beans but when the summer was coming to a close it just wasn't time.

This past year has been a huge one for me. I thrived in my job taking on more and more responsibility, gone through a physical remodel (I've called it prepping the canvas) got my first piecing (other than basic ear lobes), completed another diploma this time in Photography which resulted in some shoots for other blogs and I became a movie reviewer for a radio station called Beat 102 103 reviewing the biggest movies on their Sunday morning show (I studied Radio Production so getting back in the studio was a dream), spent more and more time with friends and had quite a few adventures.

Now with my next adventure on the horizon (more on that to come) I wanted to return to my favourite haunt - my bloggo.

I have changed over the past year and the Bloggo is about to soon and is getting a remodel in line with the new me so watch this space.

I cant promise I'll be the model blogger from this point on because I know I wont. No one is perfect but like the lyrics of the Otis Redding song which I'm listening to right now I hope you will Stand By Me. 

Its good to be back people.
