Back to Blogging in 2022!

Hello, hello!

After my book was published, I was exhausted. I neglected reading blogs and when I did read them, I stopped leaving comments like I usually did.

To use one of my favorite erudite words, that sucked.๐Ÿ˜จ

You see, I had absolutely loved being an active blogger. Blogging was nothing short of a blessing because I felt understood by inspiring, talented mental health bloggers. They weren’t just kindred spirits. These intrepid souls encouraged me to finish my book and they even promoted it after it was published!

But I was burned out, and I took a long break from the blogosphere. 

Right before I took my leave, my author friend L.E. Henderson published the insightful postTo Blog or Not To Blog.Call me superstitious, but her post seemed like a sign I was making the right choice to stop blogging.

During my hiatus, our community was devastated by the CZU Lightning Complex Fires. We were incredibly lucky our home survived the blaze, and I stopped taking a lot of things for granted. 

My husband, girls, and this beautiful furbaby Lucy Boo kept me going during our lengthy evacuation in which we had no idea if our house had burned down. 

During my break, I also made one of the best decisions of my life.

I’m no youth; I turned a whopping 50 (!) during my blogging hiatus. When I return here next year, I’d like to share my life-changing experience with you! In the meantime, hang in there and remember to:

Love, Dyane

  1. Congrats on your book๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ. Don’t be hard on yourself, you prioritised which is an important thing. Keep strong, you sound like a courageous Lady.

    • You are truly bella, no, make that bellisima! ๐Ÿ˜ŠVery beautiful! Thanks for taking time to write such a lovely comment—-you made me smile. ๐Ÿ’• I wish you a wonderful weekend!

  2. That’s awesome Dyane! I can’t wait to start reading your blog again!

    Like you, I quit blogging for awhile but I started back a few months ago. I felt burned out, but I missed blogging more than I thought I would.

    I hope you’ve been doing well during this pandemic!

    Thanks for the share of my blog and the compliment. Great to hear from you!!!

    • I had no idea you resumed blogging, Lisa!! I’m so happy you returned!

      As you noticed, I signed up at your PASSIONATE REASON blog again the moment the teeny synapses in my brain clicked and I realized you were back in the blogosphere.

      I’m not sure where this new version of my blog is headed, but I felt the call to jump back in again and couldn’t really ignore it.

      I’ve been hanging in there during this crazy, scary time despite the fires, the threat of debris flow, and the pandemic. YUCK. I hope you & your family have been navigating the social upheaval as smoothly as possible.

      On a much brighter note, have a ****great ****weekend & thanks heaps for swinging by.

  3. Hi Dyane! Glad to hear some news from you! I think you did the right thing to prioritize your health. Looking forward to reading your blog again.

    • Thanks for dropping by, Geneviรจve! ๐ŸŒˆ
      I hope you and your family are doing very well.
      While I won’t be writing as much as I used to write, you never know! ๐Ÿ˜Š
      I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Prends soin (I hope I got that right!)

  4. I’ve been wondering how things have been going for you, Dyane – great to hear your news, although the situation with the house fires sounds very scary. I haven’t been blogging either, but like you, I’m about to start up again. (I have a second book coming out, so time to dust off the website!) Will be good to catch up on here. All the best! Sara xx

    • Oh Sara, please forgive my super-tardiness in replying to your lovely comment! I’ve been a total lazy-X%^( (rhymes with glass) in just about every area of my life except for ice cream consumption; I’m a champ where that’s concerned.

      That’s very exciting you have a 2nd book coming out!!! Congratulations! ๐Ÿ‘

      I signed up for your forthcoming blog and I look forward to learning more about what’s in the works for you. In the meantime, thanks again for touching base. It’s wonderful hearing from you!

      Sending you virtual hugs,

      ๐Ÿ’– ๐Ÿ’– ๐Ÿ’– ๐Ÿ’–Dy
