It has been sooooo long since i've been here. I've missed blogging terribly - but i was not being honest to Chattering Gem and simply could no longer find the discipline or even the joy to continue.
To be frank i stopped blogging for many reasons and mainly discouraged in this ever-competitive platform. I began loosing myself and trying to fit into a mold i felt others were looking for and all for the sake of followers, likes, clicks, site traffic. If you're a blogger you know the drill.
I realized I was getting more original and organic traffic when i blogged from the heart and with no real agenda in mind. It was free flowing. It was ME. I event went as far as starting a new blog under Rakel Iona believing that would be the answer. Clearly not. *side-eye*
Chattering Gem has been so good to me. I owe it to the brand and myself to give it another heartfelt try. There's a certain joy in blogging that i missed...and so here i am.
Until the next post lovers.
