It has been a year since I last wrote anything on this blog, maybe even more. I could go on forever about why I took a break, but at the core, it is just because it started becoming a chore, a race and anything but the creative fun I use to have. During my lengthy hiatus, I often asked myself whether I still wanted to blog, and eventually I concluded that I really do. I use to love blogging, sharing knowledge, thoughts, and opinions. What I don't like is this thing we tend to do to everything in the Western World: make things a competition, as in 'look how many followers I have / comments my post received', etc.
