Hey, all travelers out there!
How are you doing today? I’m again here writing this postcard and updating you about my life. It’s like 2pm and I’m still wearing my nightwear. Someone could say that this is a slow morning or a bad start for the day. For me, on the other hand, today has been very productive. Day by day I keep updating my blog. Little things, small steps, everything I want to change and add there. It feels good.
However, it’s not surprising because I’m literally in the same situation as I was in when first starting my travel blog. A few months ago I returned from my long trip to Japan. I haven’t been traveling and so my soul yearns something more. It’s hard to stay at home doing nothing. Or well-doing everything except traveling!
When I first started writing Go Travel Global I had just returned from my first ever solo trip for three months in Japan. My life was going downhill. Writing about traveling made me feel alive. Then people started reading my not so professional blog and for the first time in my life I kind of found out that maybe my dreams of being a writer weren’t as impossible as the world made me believe.
And then I stopped blogging.
I love blogging but it’s not easy. When you write every week and want to make something out of blogging it consumes you. There’s nothing else you can think of. Every trip, every new memory, everything is a possible idea for a new blog post. And so I stopped because I love life. There was no time for anything else when I was blogging.
And now I have returned.
It took me a long time to realize that blogging doesn’t have to be serious. I can do whatever I want and that’s it! Now I have returned with a new mindset. This blogging doesn’t have to go anywhere. Of course, it would be nice to be “professional blogger” but I’m still living the life of student and freelancer writer right now so it doesn’t matter. Maybe something more will come out of this or maybe blogging will forever be just a hobby I passionately love!
Sorry for ranting once again but hey I stopped caring what people think or want. Like the name of this blog says – I’m just an idiot who writes postcards for no one on the internet…
