Dearest followers, I am in fact still alive and kicking despite my four month silence on the www.
There simply isn't an explanation for my unplanned sabbatical other than I simply got "too busy." Yes, yes, I know that sounds pathetic, and quite frankly, it is, but in my defense, a whole lot of 'life' happened to me all once during my absence and before I knew it grown-up things like priorities and relationships sneakily crept their way above blogging on my list of daily activities. Ironically, time management was even a little skill I attempted honing in, but evidently that was a flop.
Anyway, over a series of posts, starting from now, I'll shoot some breeze and catch Diary of a Daydreamer up with the happenings of my life from then until now. It's actually a little bit humorous as to the fact that most bloggers would give their front teeth for a backlog of interesting content to write about, but here I sit, almost a bit deterred at having to recap on too many monumentous (is that a word?) occurrences. I mean, the list goes from a 2 week long road trip along the Californian coast with best friends, to graduating my second year, to meeting the man of my dreams, to a fourteen day trip to England, to sipping coffees in Portland to moving back to South Africa, and everything in-between. I wasn't overreacting at the "whole lot of life happening to me all at once" bit, can you see?
And also, although my thoughts have not been colliding with the pages of my blog for a while, this little piece of personal cyberspace has been on my mind a fair bit. As one who always likes to shift, change and improve, in my own daydreams I've been brainstorming what the next phase looks like for my blog. I am actually 95% sure that I am going to be closing the final chapter of Diary of a Daydreamer very soon, only to open up a new book, I mean blog, and start afresh. I shall explain why and how and when in a later post, but I thought I'd maybe ask my followers for some thoughts on the idea? I think it's time for a change, as I feel my life has grown and evolved above and beyond what this little blog is capable of keeping up with. I'm thinking: name change, design and logo change, content alteration, the works. Good idea, yay or nay? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
