I used to be passionate about blogging. When did it die? When I ask myself that question, I remember the invention of microblogging, and one by one, blogs of people I followed online were dropping like flies.
Since becoming a mommy, I have to admit I’ve become a scatterbrain most times the past couple of years. But I suppose my passion had been redirected to our new family addition, our beautiful little girl Sophia. Having passed her first birthday, she is becoming more independent: playing alone quietly by my feet for a few minutes, learning to feed herself, undress herself for a bath, ask for what she wants, etc. Breaking my heart while I burst with pride: so this is how it’s like to be a parent.
A passion for what you love doing, a passion for life itself. What are you passionate about?
I know through my more than three decades of existence, there are things about the world that I became and continue to feel passion for. In my life what makes me feel alive involve beauty, knowledge, simplicity and love. Beauty: photos, drawings, music, stories; knowledge: personalities, history, science; simplicity: practicality and frugality; love: family and treasured friends.
This is the essence of our blog. We write about things we are passionate about. But when we get immersed in these passions, these days we don’t get the chance to blog about it as soon as we could.
So yet again, I’ll try to revive this blog. Perhaps what they say about blogging being “dead” can be put off for a little while longer.
