As you guys know, I’ve been on a very long hiatus from blogging since I moved to Australia in March 2017. It has been almost a year already and geez! How time really flies, huh? I thought about making this blog post since the first day I arrived in Australia, but oh well, life happened. I know I’ve been making a lot of excuses to be back in writing my blog, but I think only God knows how to drag someone back from the wrong to the right, lol..
What made me stop writing was actually the same exact reason why I didn’t start writing back in my University years. It was because of the camera! Back then I didn’t want to start blogging because I didn’t have a proper camera, and now my camera is half broken and I completely broke my 16mm lens too, so I left with my iPhone only.
The camera quality of my phone is actually not bad at all, and I actually did try to blog with the pictures that I captured from my iPhone, but I always thought it was not enough since I already set my picture quality to a certain standard, so yeah I left everything in the draft and just like that.. I stopped blogging.
I’m such a bad example, I know. I used to and still tell all of my readers or followers to never wait for anything in terms of starting a blog or any other creative platform that they want to start making. I tell them to start with whatever they have at the moment because if they wait, they probably would never even start. Just like what has been happening with me right now, I just stop…..
But I can forgive myself a little bit because I didn’t actually stop creating content, I still do, a little bit. I tried to compensate by making YouTube videos with my iPhone. and meanwhile, I got caught up in my comfort zone by not doing any writing at all. I got lazy and kept on blaming my working hours as a hospitality worker here (which actually also true). But that still can’t be used as an excuse, I know if I push myself a little harder, it all still can be done.
Fast forward to this date, I am now officially left with nothing…
My iPhone battery is now working very poorly, together with the cable charger as well, like… at the very exact same time. *cringe* So my life is basically a major struggle right now and I understand myself enough to know that if I don’t create something in between my stress, I could actually become depressed. I’m assuming this is how God giving me a little ‘push’ to go back in writing again.
This is me.. In front of my laptop again, typing things.. I’ll start with something basic for my next post, which is How to Apply for a Working & Holiday Visa to Australia from Indonesia in 2018. Exciting enough for you? Or not at all? Hahaha.. Anyways, I have to sleep now because I’m working in the morning tomorrow, but I’ll definitely see you guys in my next post soon, okay!
And if there’s anyone reading this, would you comment with any of your thoughts? I would love to read them and reply to them 🙂
So glad to know you’re finally going back to blogging, ce!❤️😍 Cannot wait for your upcoming posts, but still, don’t stress yourself too much if you find yourself being a little productive sometimes. There will be days where we are needed to rest, and I can totally relate to the ‘depressed’ thing when it comes to postponing productivity.🤗 Have a good one! x | http://www.shelovesbreadpudding.com | @surabayatells

Thank you so much Janice 🙂
Hahah.. Glad to know someone can relate.. You too, don’t be so hard on yourself okay!
God bless :*
It shouldn't be like this.
I remember I blogged only by a smartphone in 2008. Those were days when I couldn't plug my laptop to internet coz it costed too much. But I pushed to write everyday in my phone, I posted everyday, and I gained at least 20 comments per post. Who said it needed camera to blog?
But perhaps, all we need to start to blog is just by remembering that there were a lot of people who wait for our writings. And that's what I did. As I read comments from my readers, I wrote comment back to their own blog, and they commented on my blog again, and that's what made blogging really interesting.
I think you should find your own motivation again.
