I love my blog

Saturday, October 11, 2014

I learnt something these past two weeks: I love my blog - my tiny fragment of the world wide web where I document my travels and pour my heart out every now and then.

I've been blogging fairly regularly now for about a year and until now didn't realise how embedded somewhere beyond the sea has become in my day-to-day life. I love writing about my adventures, sharing them with whoever wants to read about them, and most importantly having a record that jogs my memory and inspires me to make the most of life and continue exploring the world.

Of course blogging isn't everything. There are much more important things in life, such as family, which is the reason I've been away for a little while. And I think finding a balance between taking the time to enjoy what's important and recording it is probably one of the things lots of bloggers wrestle with regularly.

So now my Mum and Dad have arrived safely home in New Zealand after a whirlwind month visiting the UK. I miss them already but am thankful for the time we had.

I'm am refreshed. It's amazing how after just a short break I can have so many new blogging ideas I want to explore. Yep, I'm feeling pretty inspired.

So I hope you are all doing well. I'm looking forward to sharing my most recent adventures with you and hearing all about what you've been up to. My Saturday afternoon plan consists solely of tea, biscuits and bloglovin'.

    1. Yep, for me life comes first and the more I embrace the day-to-day the more I'll have to share.

  3. I've been blogging for so long it's part of me. Sometimes you need some 'time apart' but I always return.

  4. I feel the same! I love my blog! I love that one day when I have kids, they will be able to read about what I was thinking when I was in my 20's. I also think it's important to have some time away and I have done a bit of that lately with friends visiting from home :)

  5. Balance is pretty darn tough; but the act of creating blog posts always seems to bring it's own unique pleasure somehow. Weird isn't it?
