Bye bye 2022

A new year, and a new start.

I started 2022 with the goal of writing every day – just like I did the year before.

Somehow I only made it to 233 posts. Still a decent number, but far from the 365 I had hoped for.

At the end of August, my daily writing routine ended quite abruptly. I never intended to stop. Some person that I saw way more often than I wished for took offense with some of my blog content, and threatened to sue me. Although I don’t think what I wrote was all that bad, the event changed things. It felt like I was being watched. This intervened with my writing process, and for a long time my blog didn’t feel like the space where I could write and think freely. I took some drastic measures. For a while the blog was offline. I quit writing here, almost entirely.

I thought it was needed.

It was by my own choice, but it felt forced.

Since then, a lot has changed. I moved to a new home, and this was a game changer. The problem as I perceived it then no longer exists to me.

I think I am ready to write again.

I’m always ready to write again. Not sure if it will be daily, but certainly regularly!

And what better day to start than the first of January?

Happy New Year everyone.
