“How come you don’t post on your blog anymore?”
“When is the next blog post coming out?”
A number of people have been asking why I haven’t been blogging or posting anything. When this conversation comes up, I usually say the same thing: I just don’t have the passion anymore.
Looking at that statement now, I’d say it’s half true. I don’t have that same fire anymore, but only because I’m burnt out from constantly trying to crank out 2-3 blog posts every week for however long I was doing it. It would’ve been fine if most of the topics were things I was passionate about, but a majority of those posts were just “fillers.” That’s how it felt like to me, at least. It was like I was forcing myself to write about anything I think would sound remotely interesting just to post it.
Don’t get me wrong. I never lied about anything or made anything up just for the sake of posting. That’s something I would never do. I hate liars, and I would never do that to my readers. However, I would say I was trying to be something I wasn’t by writing about things I wasn’t passionate enough about. This was something I disliked myself for doing, and after a while, I lost the fire for writing.
I do think about blogging again from time to time. Then I’d come to VNYZY, log in, and be reminded of all the junk I’ve written in the past. This results in me logging out again and the cycle continues.
I’m not sure what’s really next for VNYZY, but I do know I want to write again. I plan on only writing when I have something I’d want to share. No more posts just to fulfill a quota. Each post would be because I have something I feel is important to share.
Whether it’s a post a week or a post a month, I plan on making a comeback.
