TL;DR: After nearly 3 years off from this blog, I have decided to pick it back up for regular posting. In this post, I talk about a more realistic expectation of myself and how I envision the future of this blog.
Annnd… we’re back.
Nearly 3 years ago, I started this blog as a way to cope with my ADHD diagnosis in the midst of a worldwide pandemic… and also build awareness of the neurodivergent experience (vs. the neurotypical view of neurodivergence). Since my last blog post in August 2020, a lot has happened. I moved into the dissertation phase of my doctorate; I got a new job (in Oregon); I moved across the country (to Oregon). Not to mention the insanity that has been happening in America’s political and social landscape. Also – Tiktok blew up and made the mental health conversation much more accessible to many people which makes a blog feel… kinda pointless. I will also acknowledge that in that last post, I noted how heavily burnt out I was, which is definitely part of why I stopped blogging altogether.
Recently, I found the desire to start blogging again. It has increased over time and I decided to go ahead and do it. So here I am. I cannot promise to not drop off again. Unfortunately, the nature of ADHD is just that my interests in projects will ebb and flow. I can promise to try to stick to posting at least twice a month. I cannot promise a consistent day or time. Some months might have more posts. Some months might have less. I do have posts drafted from when I was blogging regularly that I will polish up and schedule out. So you can expect consistent posts through at least January.
Some links and images from my older posts are no longer active. I will not be going back and fixing those. Unfortunately, I cannot remember what some of those images were and I just refuse to burden myself with fixing all of it. I will do my best to work on hosting images in future posts so this does not continue to be an issue but I’m not sure what that looks like yet.
I also want to note that in three years, things can change a lot. I don’t know if my writing style will be the same, though I feel like it might be. My interest is still in the symptoms of different diagnoses, but I also want to do some posts about (American) law and how to advocate for yourself socially and professionally.
If you’re still here… and you enjoy the blog… and are looking forward to future posts… Let me know in the comments – what kind of content do you want to see? And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
