THE SABBATICAL

 

Hello Everyone. It’s been a really, really, really long time – I know!

Plus, I think from all the “reallys” we can ascertain it’s been a while.

So, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Birthday and Congratulations, all in one!

I feel I need to give an explanation for being absent from blogging!

And you know what, let’s not call it an absence, but more of a sabbatical, lol!

At the end of last year I felt I needed to step away and get a fresh perspective; re-evaluate why I setup the blog and my YouTube channel in the first place.

With so many people blogging and vlogging these days, you can sometimes feel yourself getting sucked into putting up a post/video, for the sake of staying current, and not being left behind. But, the questions we need to sometimes ask ourselves are:

Is it relevant?

Is it beneficial?

Is it fun?

Or are we we just going “blah, blah, blah” to fill the space?

I setup my blog and YouTube channel to share some of my Ideas, my love for creating things and sharing bits of our lives (hubby & I) and for posterity. Something your children and your children’s children can read or view one day.

But, somewhere along the way, that got lost.

There are so many people out here putting up posts and videos just for the sake of it.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m probably not going to like everything you post and vice versa – but we need to stop putting out crap just to say we’ve posted!

Sometimes, I find I’ve watched something or read a post and I’m like, “What the Hell did I just see!”

When it comes to blogging and vlogging, I can honestly say, “I’m late to the party!” (I only started in 2014).

My point is, “Do your research, and be original. Don’t just put up shit to be current” Your audience deserves quality.

If you don’t have time to create videos, or write something good, then there are many other ways to keep your audience entertained. And these are (drum roll please!) Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook… As we all well know.

We need to stop being so samey and placing more energy into being original!

Take a sabbatical if you need it, you will be grateful you did in the long run.

Side note: This is probably not the most electrifying piece of writing I have ever done – but guess what, It’s original!

FYI: Famous people who have taken Sabbatical and are back on top of their game are:

Roger Federer, JK Rowling and Hugh Jackman

See you soon – hopefully, not next year lol 🙂
