Exactly a month and 4 days today since my last blog post. It’s the longest break I’ve taken since I repented from not posting often.
TBH. It wasn’t initially a break. In my head, my blog had shut down. It was even easier for me to shut down when I got a mail saying that it was that time of the year to renew my blog subscription. I convinced myself, it was a sign because, why else would my plan expire at the exact same time I’m shutting down? Had to be Jesus. lol
But lies. of course it wasn’t Jesus, it was just self consolation.
As usual, while I wasn’t posting, a few people hit me up to ask what was going on and to say they were expecting posts but haven’t seen any. I’d get questions like “How far your blog now?” “No gist on Kuyetasham, what’s happening? “Does your blog still exist”? List goes on. And of course I only told a few people that I was considering shutting down and their responses, are part of the reasons why I’m back up and running! If you’re in this category, thank you and thank you. If you’re not in this category but you’re reading this post right now, thank you too! It only means you stuck around till this post and you’re awesome. You and you are the reasons I’m back here. If it’s your first time here, welcome. At Kuyetasham, we’re usually lazy but we have a change of heart now because work must be done.
A major reason why I’m back is because, writing is my therapy and those few weeks without my therapy wasn’t easy. So I need no public validation to write, I’m just going to continue because it helps me deal with this hassle that is life.
PS: SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE CONSISTENT AND FULL TIME BLOGGERS OUT THERE, UNTIL LAST MONTH, I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH HARD WORK YOU GUYS PUT IN. THIS BLOGGING BUSINESS CAN BE A DRAG SOMETIMES. MADE ME REALIZE, IT’S ALL “SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.”
Boy! Have I had stuff that I could have blogged about over the past month? Yes! A lot. But I don’t know what I’d do with my life now since I didn’t pen them down because I thought I had shut down.
Now to the best part! I’m thinking of relaunching with a series of give aways. Nothing fancy! Please don’t expect ‘wows’ because I’m currently not on anyone’s pay roll (not even my parents because graduate life. *sigh) and with the way Nigeria is right now, you need not be told my situation. That graduate life and no pocket money business, is a story for another day. 🙁
All these being said, kuyetasham.com is here to stay and I’m excited to see what the other half of the year holds for me!
The blog is getting a face lift and finally a schedule which I’ve put on my prayer list and I plan to back up with hard work, (because what’s Faith without works? Not Ishaya. Lol! okay private joke.) So lets see how it goes.
Did I miss anything while I was away? Did you miss me? YES?
Do you have specifics you’d want to win if I eventually decide on the give away? Let me know. The mode of selection will be totally different from the usual.
