I’m going to be real honest for a minute.
Blogging is a real time suck and I mean that in the nicest way possible.
Between the writing, the scheduling, the sharing, the connecting… it takes up a lot of time. It’s a full-time job, which is why for many, it is their full-time job.
I don’t have enough hours in my day to think about blogging, especially with all that comes with it.
And yet, here I am. Blogging. I promise, this isn’t a “I’m back after a blogging break” post. Technically, the one before this was. But after I posted, I never wrote anything. But that’s okay because I never made any promises to write.
After helping a friend prepare for the soon-to-be launch of her blog, it inspired me to get back in the saddle and start doing something I truly enjoy again. I know I mentioned it in my last post (you can find that here) but I really mean it this time. You probably won’t find any regularity here, but you will start seeing some posts again.
I mean, I did give the blog a fresh new look. I have to get some content up in here to show it off.
And yes, I do stick by my “not a lifestyle blogger” stance. Sure, I guess technically I am because I post about things in my life, like being an anxiety warrior, but I still hold my ground that the hubs will not be on here, nor will my town or my house, or my weekend recaps, or anything like that. So, It’s Eryn E is not a lifestyle blog, but rather “a blog by Eryn Eaton” and a place where I express my thoughts and share things that I want to share.
Do I have high hopes for my blog this time around? Nope. The last time I was blogging consistently, I was obsessed with the numbers, the ads, all of it. It made blogging a really crappy experience for me. I’m sure I’ll add in some sidebar ads at some point, and include some Amazon links here and there. But, I really just want to enjoy writing and sharing content that is important to me.
Do I care if anyone actually reads my posts? Not really. I mean, I hope at least a handful of people will. In reality, if my posts inspire a small number of people, then I’ll be satisfied. I’m really just doing this to write again.
Do I want to be blogger famous? Well, still kind of yes. But in the sense that someone just stumbles across one of my posts, and shares it, and suddenly all of the major writing sites want me. Not the kind of blogger famous you actually have to work for. Okay, that sounds terrible. I basically want to reap all the benefits with little to no work. Huh. Kind of sounds like a lot of millennials these days. Hmmm… that sounds like a potential blog post.
So, if you’re reading this now. Hey! Welcome back. I’m glad you’re here. I hope you can hang out for the ride.
If you’re new here, hi! I’m glad you stumbled across my little page on the internet. There are some good posts already on here from 2015 (when itseryne.com was born).
If you just happened to land here for no reason, hopefully you’ll have seen something you like enough to come back. Or don’t. And if you don’t, thanks for stopping by!
Welp. I made that “official back to blogging post” that I definitely didn’t want to write, but did anyways. I guess that means I should probably start putting some blog posts together…
