All right, enough of these shenanigans with the blog hiatus. It's been so long since I've last blogged that I fear the blogging police will rescind my blog (that's a thing, right?).
Part of the problem is that I am having a blog identity crisis. When I started my blog, the main reasons behind it were to keep my family and friends informed on how Eric and I (and Abby) --
--were fairing in Vancouver (poorly) and to make an attempt at documenting our lives. Well, we're no longer in Vanpoover (praises be).
And it turns out that Eric and I are charmingly uninteresting. So now I need to reevaluate the existence and meaning of my blog. Very existential.
If I'm not really writing to keep family and friends up to date on our lives, what should I write about? Well, I don't really want to continue trying to do a journal-esque documenting of my life because, as we've all witnessed, it hasn't gone too swimmingly thus far. The pressure of constantly updating on my life is too much! I have far too great of an attention problem to have to stick to a linear timeline. Attention span of a gnat, this one.
I also really don't care for the look of my blog. Hopefully I'll get around to remedying that at some point and then this comment will be irrelevant.
(Edit: revamped the blog and am satisfied with it ... for now)
And let's not kid -- another huge reason I haven't been blogging is because I've been insanely busy. I don't know where the last seven months have gone!
So in summation, I am going to be attempting a bit of an overhaul on the blog, both in appearance and substance. Hopefully this will re-motivate me and rekindle a fondness for my blog.
And in an effort to not wear myself out on my first blog post in a good while, I shall resist my usual habit of overdoing it with the length of my blog posts and sign off now before I get carried away. Hopefully this will translate to more frequent blog posts because, I know, you've all missed me terribly!
