It’s been some time since I last blogged. This has not been through lack of something to say. In fact, sometimes it’s been quite the opposite. I’ve had so much going on in my head that I did not know where to begin. Which of the many things that interest me should I write about?
- The latest research findings on ME/CFS?
- Thoughts sparked by blogs I’ve been reading – both atheist and Christian?
- Reflections on the natural world?
- Something about my explorations into ‘healthy’ eating?
- Reviews of the books I’ve been reading – both fiction and non fiction?
There have been so many things that I could have written about. Yet I didn’t. Over Christmas, I had the added distraction of family being home. Since then, I have been busy with other church, writing and family commitments. So there have been times when energy has been short and times when I’ve just had other things on my mind.
This hasn’t been the only cause of the hiatus, though. I think part of me has been waiting – pondering whether I really wanted to continue with my blog and where I should take it if I did. Do I really have the time and energy to devote to it? If so, what would my potential readers want to read about? Do I need to focus on one subject? Or does it make more sense to write about whatever is on my mind at the time and let them pick and choose?
Waiting. Thinking. Praying. Taking stock.
But now I have decided that I will continue – and I will write about what I want to write about and let my readers pick and choose. For example, I want to do a series of posts about diet and health. I also want to write a bit about faith in the modern world. And then there is my ongoing fascination with nature. So you’re likely to find posts on all those subjects in the coming weeks. But first, a trip down Memory Lane…
