To Blog or Not To Blog…

…is the biggest dilemma of my life since the day I stopped blogging.

It has been really difficult for me to ride with the flow since I have become so busy with life. To be honest, I really miss reading books and completing my Goodreads challenge. However, everything has become too impossible to accomplish. Now that I am an incoming freshman in college, I know things will be way more complicated than it was before.

Thus, I plan to revive this blog with this semi-introductory post, and I really wish that I can post casually like I did before. I mean, look at the date of my last post: November 2016. I have been doing blogging wrong, but then, I have come to a realization that I definitely do not want to do blogging as a chore. I just want to enjoy every bits of it, so I hope you guys will understand and still follow my blogging life.

How are you all doing?

  1. Hey man, good to see you’re back. I don’t think you should feel pressured to blog often and you definitely don’t want to make it a chore. You should be reading books for fun and then blogging out of your joy or frustration or whatever you feel after reading.

    Glad to see you’re back though and hope college goes well.

    Post when you can!


  2. I managed to blog while at university and I graduate in June. In all honesty it’s something to have as a break. You can’t just fully focus on education because it makes your studies worse.

    I’m starting a full time job in something I love and I don’t know how I’ll fit it in but it’s not a chore. There’s no point making it that way. You have other things in your life.

    I think when you leave for a long period of time that it makes I really hard to come back but if that’s what you want to do then don’t stop trying


    1. Hi, this is so true!!! I’ve been gone a long, long time, and it’s really hard to (kinda) force myself to blog. Throughout my hiatus, there’s always a thought that clouds my mind: I miss blogging and the community. I just really hope I can balance blogging and uni like you did because I’m also going to try to join a varsity team, so I think the possibility of me blogging again shrinks. However, here I am, trying my best to put some content while there’s still no uni. Thank you so much!


  3. Two years ago when I was in tenth grade, I almost quit blogging altogether. I think we were in the same situation, wherein school was getting in the way of reading time and drafting a post and whatnot. I really had to sacrifice those things so I could graduate junior high school. And right now, I wouldn’t say I’m back to my old blogging regimen. If anything I’ve become a lazy blogger as of late lol. But I want to put out quality content every single time – be it there be two month intervals (but hopefully it won’t come to that haha).

    Hope this encouraged you in some way, Justine! Kaya mo yan bro. 🙂


    1. Haha, I totally understand you bro! From my very long uninspired hiatus, I still have no idea how I will manage my blog if I ever return. Now that I have (maybe), no idea comes to mind. I can also say that I’ve become a lazy blogger (or more like a lazy bum). I will definitely do my best to do what makes me happier. Thanks man!


  4. Oh I totally understand where you’re coming from; I was in your exact same position back in June 2016. Dealing with life/uni while trying to consistently blog got too difficult and I stopped blogging for a long time. Do whatever suits your needs best, definitely don’t need to feel pressured to post because that just makes it worse ahah. Good luck! 😊


    1. Hey, I am glad that you’ve overcome that. It is really hard for me to decide until now. I just miss blogging that’s why I posted one, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to be active. I’ll try though. I just hope I can juggle uni life and blogging life. 🙂

      1. Thanks! Me too. Though I completely understand you; being active can be such a hard task when there’s a lot on your plate. I still need to take breaks from time to time for that reason. I hope so too! Good luck. 😊

  5. Hey Good to see you after so long. I am going through the same thing as you. My day job is soo time consuming and I’m studying too so blogging is on the back burner. But yes its meant to be fun so take your time and as Rine says’s use it like a break from the school work.

    all the best with college!!!
