Here's the deal...



A while ago I started this blog...  it was January 2011.
I had no clue what I was doing... but I gave myself a huge challenge... one that would change me.
I was doing it for myself to resolve some issues with my life... and it helped!  A LOT!!!

Time went by... and I went from 8 readers to many many more....  and I kept on going...

Until my book came out... then I became obsessed with numbers... I had to use my blog to boost book sales.... I had to be known... and I started selecting what I was writing about... It had to fit into a tiny window of subject that would be about minimalism and veganism and health and yoga...

So I became a "blogger"... and it turned into an adventure more with numbers and frequency then just the fun of writing...  I would check then number of readers 2-3 times a day... I committed myself to writing more and more...  to please my readers so I thought...

Because I wanted to have a "successful" blog, I started following tips from successful blogger... and although I feel like I stay honest and authentic in my writing, I avoided some subjects I would I like to write about...  because it may push away some readers... I committed to 2-3 blog post a week...  to keep my readers interested... I lost track of why I was doing this in the beginning...

Then it became more like a "business" then "for fun" and I started hating it...  I had enough of "having" to write... so I took a break and enjoyed the freedom... then I missed it so I came back...  but still obsessed with the rules and numbers therefore it did not work out... If you have been reading me for a while, you too probably figured out that rules do not work for me! (it was one of the great finding this blog gave me)

Now after a month of not thinking about it I started missing it...  I miss writing... I miss sharing...
I had almost forgotten I was once had a blog...  but it came back... because I was asked if I would do a guest blog post and I felt like doing it...

And slowly but surely, after a well deserved break, the need to write is still there...
But the fixation on the number is gone...

Therefore I am back... BUT in my terms... and no more rules... no more obligations... only listening to me heart and writing when I feel like it... on what I feel like writing...

I am reinstating this blog as it was at first was meant to be:  a journal (that got shared through the Internet but it doesn't have too)

1) A place for me - to write and learn about myself
2) A place to share - because I think some people might benefit from my experiences - and I love to share
3) A place where I write about what I want and feel like...  still in a respectful manner but I will no longer avoid some subject not to "lose" readers...  take it or leave it! It will be my opinion on different subjects...  not every one will agree... but it is what it is...
4) A place with no schedule... I can write 3 post on one week and nothing for a month... there will be no set schedule...  but you will still be able to subscribe by email, FB, Pinterest or Google+ therefore you will not miss anything and you won't have to log in everyday to make sure I did not write anything!

Yes I will keep writing on minimalism and veganism... because it defines who I am. It is part of my life...
Yes I will share more recipes...
And yes I will share on yoga, meditation and other spiritual issues when I feel like it because that too is important in my life and sometimes I need to write on it to see clearly.

But I will also write on some different subjects, related to society and my own personnal life,  how I see it... you opinion and comments will be welcome and appreciated although I will expect them to be respectful like I will be.

We are all adults here.... I hope we can agree to disagree and grow with that.

I hope this can work out for you... I know it will for me! :-)

I sincerely hope that the readers that will stay are the right one and that this can become more then a blog but a place where exchange/comments/discussion are welcome...  a place where you can ask me questions, suggest blog post idea and where people will not be shy to intereact!  This is what I am looking for...

I know it will mean that in the short term I might lose people but that is not what I am after anymore...  I want to share with like minded people.  I need to create a web, a group of my own... of people who trust, respect and like my opinions and who's opinions I trust, respect and like.

love&peace, as always...
