The long-awaited day is here. I know, the one you’ve been pining for for months now. 🙂 I’m back!
The last few months have been interesting. It’s been hard to be away from my blog, because it’s something I’m passionate about. But as I mentioned in my last post before the hiatus, the blog was simply consuming too much time and it was causing me to neglect other, more important, things in my life.
I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last few months, and I’ve also been extremely blessed. Going forward, I’ll definitely be sharing little tidbits of some of the things I have learned, with the hope that it might help someone else.
A New Direction
I have also decided that I’m going to be moving forward with this blog in a different direction than before. As I’ve thought a lot about my passion when it comes to personal finance, I’ve tried really hard to find something that adds value to all of you. But your diversity, which is lovely by the way, makes it hard to feel like I’m actually helping anyone by being a one-trick pony.
As I’ve learned from other personal finance bloggers, I’ve realized that personal wealth is so much more to me than money. I know that because I’ve seen it first-hand in areas of the world where money isn’t the object of everyone’s pursuits and happiness is found in a multitude of other ways.
So moving forward, I’m going to start sharing my thoughts about the things in life that make us wealthy. Finances are still going to be a part of that, but not the sole focus. I’ll have to ask for your patience with me because it may take me a while before I really find my niche, but I’m hoping that this will open things up to add more value to each of you.
Another move I’m going to be making is to focus on this blog just as a hobby rather than as a business, as was my focus before. I feel like this is the best direction for me personally because of the colossal amount of time I spent on it every day when I was trying to focus on running it like a business. Because of that, I probably won’t be posting as often as I used to. In fact, I’m not even going to force myself to any sort of posting schedule at all. That may make me lose readers, but I doubt it’ll be any more than by going on a 3-month hiatus 😉
Anyway, I know this is short, but I just wanted to let you know that I’ve missed you and I can’t stay away any longer. Here’s to the future!
