A look back at blogging in 2021 and… goodbye?

Salut ร  tous!

*sighs* I did not want to write this post, but it’ll be unfair to not give an update for my ghosting lately.ย 

I was looking over the total post count for my old blog recently. Turns out, I managed to publish 2,491 posts. It may not be a lot to show for 5 years, but for me, it represented what I set out to accomplish when it came to blogging. With this blog, things have been slow from the get-go. I only managed to write 49 posts for the year, which for me, is, but a bit of a failure, as I would’ve liked to have published at least 80 posts by this time, 100 by year-end, but it was not to be.

The goals I laid out at the beginning of the year for the blog was not achieved. I tried to crank out those posts, but I did not have it in me to do so. I still don’t, as other projects has captivated my attention. Looking back at 2021, it was impossible to realize those goals, as too many things kept coming up that were totally not blog related. I should’ve stepped back since April or so, but I wanted to push forward. I’ve come to realize that I was forcing what I couldn’t hold onto.ย

With that in mind, I’ve decided to take a break from this blog until further notice. I do have a few posts scheduled, but hopefully, I’ll be working on new content behind the scenes. I do have some long-overdue comments to reply to, so I hope to get to those soon, as I’ll be working on building the Bible study blog, and a Trinidad related blog that is dying for content. I’ll also be using this time to work on my Italian, writing, and simply organizing all areas of my life.

Thank you always for your support; I utmost appreciate it! Hopefully, I’ll be back with a vengeance at some point, but for now, it’s time to say goodbye.ย 

Until then, may God continue to bless, keep, and guide you.ย 

A presto!

VERSE OF THE MONTH (October 2021): 

Why should the living complain when punished 
for their sins? 

Let us examine our ways and test them, 
and let us return to the LORD.

Small goals for 2021.

As the French say: C’est la vie!

I don’t make resolutions of any sort, but I’ve written down a few goals I’ll like to accomplish in 2021.

Draw closer to Christ

There are times in my walk with Christ that I feel as if I’m not doing enough as a Christian. There are still little kinks that I need to work out where my attitude is concerned and I’ve taken the matter to God. Yet, closer, closer, the closest I could be at the feet of my Lord is where I long to be.

Return to writing

*Sighs* I haven’t written short stories or full-length ones for that matter in a long time. I have a lot of ideas backed up that I’ll like to see completed, so I’ll try my best to oil those gears soon, and share a story or two.ย 

Be more creative

I love creating things! Lock me in a room with a laptop for a day or two, and I’ll emerge with… well, banners like what you see above or the sign-off signature at the bottom. I want to be more creative with my hands, so I’m looking to do more DIY stuff.ย 

Read better books

This is definitely going to be a challenge. I’ve discovered whether outdated or modern, books do not live up to the standard that I hold them to. And most of these books – classic to modern – seem to enjoy mocking Christ. There are Christians that may say they’re not offended, but true Christians know not to mix matters when it comes to mocking our Lord and Savior.ย 

Draw better

I’ve taken up drawing once again. Although I’m no expert, I’m excited to be relearning to draw since I’ve been out of touch with this practice. So far, I’ve been loving it, but I’ve stopped for a while… yet, again. I hope to share some of my amateur creations with you soon.

Make memories

It doesn’t matter where I’ll be or who I’m with, I’m determined to create wonderful memories!

When I next post, it’ll be 2021. We’ve made it through 2020 because of God despite the circumstances. Let us keep looking towards His guidance as 2021 approaches.

All the best for 2021!
