I’ve been blogging for around 2 years now. In that time, blogging has changed a lot and my experience with it certainly has. One this is for sure: Blogging has only enhanced my life in many, many.

Sometimes, like an introvert who has just spent 48 hours straight in a crowded room, I feel so overwhelmed that I want to retreat away from it all. I just need to clear it all out of my mind and hide away for a few hours. It’s something I’m noticing more and more and I need to talk about it. I can’t be the only one…
