I was going to post my announcement with the year in review on New Year’s Eve, but since this was a question on Writing.com this morning, I took it as a sign to post tonight.
The question of the day on Writing.com was this:
What is your vision, or dream, for the new year?
I answered in the following:
|Less time online, focusing on my jobs, boyfriend, friends, family, and life. I also want to work on my Happiness Box and the book I want to write about it.|
The one who posted the question responded:
|Sounds like you have your priorities in order.|
Yeah. Life has been on an upswing and while I expect storms along the way and all sorts of ups and downs, I want to stay focused on the most important things. Blogging and social media aren’t really important right now. Will I stop it entirely? No… But I won’t be updating my blog often or visiting other blogs. I’m sort of tired of it right now.
I won’t be active in the blogosphere in 2022. I won’t be writing as much and I won’t be visiting as much either. I really want to focus on my offline life, especially with Tommy and my full-time job. I have a lot on my plate now and what is on my plate is more important than blogging; I’m a Happy Jess when I focus on the priorities and a blog isn’t my top priority now; same with reading.
Thank you for understanding. The Happiness Box Project will be celebrating 5 years on 1/1 and I will be adding to the box in 2022. I think focusing on real life will benefit the Happiness Box too.
