Somewhere last year, I lost my way. I was writing every day, and this blog, a safe place for others like myself to express themselves, took a backseat. It was not fair.
In 2018, the blog flourished. Part of it was writing all the time, almost every day. It gave the other writers on this blog a template to continue to share their stories. When I got busy in 2019 with publishing, writing, and school, I let things go. How could I hold my writers accountable to write a couple of pieces a month if I was not willing to do the same? In the prime of this blog, we had somewhere around eighty articles, amazingly written articles a month come through this blog. I was scheduling three blog posts on an average day.
I always envisioned this blog as a collaborative effort with people writing down their experiences and sharing it with the world. It was that way for a while. In 2019, things got complicated, and just when I was beginning to find my way back to this blog, my life fell apart.
Is This Blog Still Worth it?
I have my doubts. In March, this blog comes up for its yearly renewal. In a way, I want to stick it out and continue to advocate, but for this blog to work, I need all my writers that are a part of this thing we have created.
I can’t do it on my own. So I am reaching out because I hope that some of my fellow writers will come back. This weekend I will be going through and seeing who has been writing and who has not. I hope that some people will reach out and want to become a part of this fantastic thing. If I get enough people on board, I will keep the blog going for another year and reassess this time next year. If you would like to write for The Bipolar Writer Collaborative blog, please reach out at email@example.com, or my contact me through the website.
I hope this is not the end. I feel this blog could help so many people.
Always Keep Fighting
