Learning To Fly

So today is the start of the new year in blogging for me at Paper Dolls.

I've been blogging since Feb 2009 but it seems like yesterday I began.
When I started this blog it was to help others and myself. People would stop me and ask where I got what I was wearing and I was all to eager to tell them all about it.

My partner at the time suggested I make this blog to pass them the link when they asked, saving everyone's time. *smiles remembering*

And for years that's what I did, but then it was more of a hobby, I blogged when I felt like it, sometimes not for months at a time.

Then last year I got deeply involved. Almost all day every day I would stand on my platform and take photos, spending hours putting posts together, chasing down info and locations that items were to be found.

I spent so much time alone blogging that I've lost touch with why I came to SL in the first place. I lost what I was here. I became only a blogger. A blogger who was having anxiety attacks over making sure she did everything. 
Anxiety over Secondlife is just so wrong on so many levels.
I decided I needed to do something about it.

So, I have left many of the blogging groups I was a part of, keeping only my top favorites. Ones I would regularly shop at regardless. I thought about stopping all of it but honestly even though it's pretty much thankless work,  I do enjoy it & If I've helped even one person with these posts then I will continue but I can't let it consume me nor define who I am.

Time to find the extroverted submissive I was. 
Thanks for reading.
