Hello, everyone! Since it is now October, my September hiatus is officially over.
I’ve really enjoyed my break from blogging, and I feel ready to jump back in. But I feel that I owe you an explanation of why I took a hiatus in the first place.
The main reason is that, while I adore literature and philosophy, I was running out of things to say on those topics. I was posting once a week, so I had to rack my brain for things to write about. Which meant that I approached every book with the mindset, “How can I dissect this for blogging material?”
I couldn’t fully enjoy what I was reading. I didn’t have much time to read because I was blogging. I couldn’t write well because I was writing so much.
It was bad. I realized that I had to stop if I didn’t want to hate blogging.
After a month of reflection, I realized why blogging had stopped being fun: having an update schedule. Don’t get me wrong–schedules are a very useful tool for people who need to be blogging for their business or want to build a huge reader base. But I blog for fun, and I don’t need to make fun into work for no reason.
Now, I’m thrilled to start blogging again! My mind is once again crammed with books, and my fingers are itching to write. I’m excited for what the future holds for Remnants of Wit.
Thanks for sticking with me! I’ll be back on Friday with a new post.
