A Return to Blogging?

Firstly… Happy New Year to you all! I know I’m a *bit* late with it, so apologies for that! How was everyone’s 2021? Mine was crazy and I have so much to share with you all in the next few weeks! And, yes, I said in the next few weeks which means I am planning blog content and returning to blogging after being gone for nearly a year!

what has bought about this change? Well, when the pandemic hit and we were going in and out of lockdowns, the rules changing all the time along with flexible working from home, as well as some personal stuff, blogging started to get a bit too much for me. In all honesty, I felt mentally drained a lot of the time. Everything is still changing and we don’t know what is happening from one day to the next regarding restrictions and rules but I’m getting used to it now and things seem to be easier to handle, my routine is more settled and I’m feeling less exhausted and seem to have a bit more time available to me. I’ve missed writing blogs and all the other bits that come along with it, especially interacting with you guys! I have been sneak reading your blogs too…keeping up with what you have been writing but I really miss the social side to blogging!

While I stepped away from the blog, I didn’t stop writing completely…. I have been writing articles for an online magazine called The Everyday Magazine (click the link and it should take you to the articles I have written!). I have also been writing a mental health blog for work (on our intranet site).

With all of this writing I have been doing away from the blog, it has made me realise just how much I love writing and blogging so this year I’m going to try and write more posts. I am not sure whether to return to the blogging format I have been so used to in the past or whether this blog will change and become something else in the future, for now though I am going to be sharing things that have happened in 2021, some posts about lifestyle, the house and some general ramblings about my life!

I hope you have all had a fab Christmas and New Year! Let me know how you spent the holidays and if you have any resolutions for this year in the comments! I’ve not made any (yet) but Id love to hear yours!

  1. Lovely to see your post Suzi.
    I think we all find writing can be so enjoyable and so good for us, but sometimes we need to take a break and not feel as if we are under obligation to write on tap.
    Your posts have always been full of life and colour, and I am very glad to hear you will have more time on your side.
    Lots of love to you….xx

  2. Hey Suzy,

      1. Yes, was quiet Christmas n brother Ray (lives nearby ) and I dined out on Christmas Day for a changed. Ray was β€˜pinged’ on his Covid app a couple of days later and tested positive with pcr. Had a tickly cough only. I door step visited masked daily for his self isolation period & my daily lateral flow tests were normal. Thankfully he is now over it but just gets tired more easily. I did find the period, on top of Christmas, stressful as of course he did but hey ho managing ok.
        What about you?

      2. Oh no, that’s not good. How is he now? I found with my Covid that, even now, I’m experiencing a lot of tiredness and am in bed most nights by 9:30/10pm. My Christmas was good, was just me and the husband. We had a lovely cooked dinner and spent much of the day just chilling and relaxing xxx
