Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2019 will be filled with love, peace and happiness. I took a break as you might have noticed. In the first place to spend the holidays with my family. But I also needed some time off from blogging. The blogging world has changed a lot since I began in 2007. Blogs has become more professional which is not a bad thing but I do miss the blogging community which was once there. Last year I often questioned myself why am I still spending so much time on this blog. The community sense is no longer there, the interaction with my readers which I loved is also almost gone (90% of the comments I get is spam), I hardly make any money from my blog (the money generated from advertising does not cover the hosting costs and the time I put in). So the big question is: to blog or not to blog? I have to find back the joy and in order to do so I might need to make some changes. Perhaps I have to be more active on social media as there is more interaction or maybe I need to change the content. I will be thinking on how to bring back the joy of blogging in the coming months and will keep you updated on the process!
