Well, well, well

... it's been awhile, Happy New Year :)

Two thoughts crossed my mind when I logged into my account this evening:
1. Do people still read blogs?
2. Is this even worth blogging?

It seems in a world of insta-social media, blogging has taken a bit of a backseat. Why read through a blog post when you can simply scroll through a handful of pictures with one-line captions and a few hashtags thrown in?

As outdated as blogging seems to be, I still love reading them - and clearly, I've missed it because why else would I be back after two years of letting dust and cobwebs gather in this tiny corner of the web ... Oops! :)

Truthfully, I've found myself trawling through blogs in the past few months. In between breaks at work, on my morning and evening commute, when I'm looking for reviews on products, before I consider purchasing items online ... I always end up on one blog or another. There's something different about reading entries and knowing the time, thought and effort a person has put into it. I've noticed that blogging still has a personal element to it and I appreciate reading material that doesn't involve advertisements so often associated with other social media platforms.

I'm hoping that 2019 will see me logging on more often as I really do miss the creativity behind blogging and regardless of whether people still read blogs, I enjoy it and I am grateful for the friendships I've made in the blogging community in the short time that I've been online.

In addition to setting aside more time for A-Z | Life & Style, I'm aiming for the following in the year ahead.
