It takes a lot to keep a blog like this going, and for a long time, I did not have the drive to do that. The fact is that I thought multiple times about deleting ToT for good. I did not think there was a way to keep it going, especially when I did not have the heart to make posts anymore and was getting frustrated trying to find new and exciting things to say.
A lot of crazy things have happened since I’ve been away, some I’m not willing to disclose, but I lost all confidence as a result and just couldn’t write anymore. It felt like work, and that is not what this blog is about. I shouldn’t have to feel chained to my desk trying to write an article or find a video for Documentary Sunday, especially with college courses to take and essays to write. So I took what I thought was going to be a few weeks to recharge, but this ended up being a lot longer – more than a few months.
Recent events let me reevaluate everything, especially in the last couple of weeks. I got my confidence back, and while I may not have all the time in the world to make new posts, I will certainly be back on Thorns again very soon with new content that I find myself actually looking forward to for the first time in awhile. I refuse to throw away three and a half years of work. We’re going to make it to four years in December.
I want to thank everyone who reads this blog for your support over the past few years in the meantime, and reassure everyone that I will be back very soon, probably even this week. I’m very grateful for you standing behind me! Let’s keep the ball rolling!
