Why I deleted 150 blog posts

Well hello there! It’s been a while! I’ve missed the writing and keeping up with my readers also. I hope this blog finds you all well.

After almost 6 months (maybe more) of being inactive….A few weeks ago, I logged in and deleted approx 150 blogs. Years and years of writing. Moments shared, experiences, quotes, stories, links to all sorts of things, I think I even put my Pesto recipe on here at some point.

All…. gone……

I sat there for a good hour deleting each post and reminding myself that I was doing the right thing.

They weren’t backed up, not saved somewhere else just in case I was having a “WTF” moment and would regret it. Nope. All Deleted.


Why the hell would someone do such a thing? Why would you delete years of master pieces that were edited and written with love? Slaved over and vulnerably posted – feeding the fear of rejection with each kind comment recieved from other writers.

Why would someone waste all that hard work? All that energy? All that TIME?!

It’s Simple really.

I’ve grown up. I’ve changed. I didn’t feel that the voice of “her” my 2015/2016 version of myself was like the 2018 version.

I’ve learnt so much more, I’ve read so much more.

My mission changed.

My goals changed.

It’s time to take a crisp white piece of paper and start new. Let me reintroduce myself as I begin blogging again.

If you’ve come across my blog for the first time, subscribe – it will be worth your while.

If you know me from before, I send you a big hello and look forward to sharing again.

Let me leave with a quote I love so much by Albert Einstein…..

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though EVERYTHING IS A MIRACLE”

Until next time… Make it a GREAT day!
