Comebacks are Hard

Not even like, sports comebacks where your body has to go from fat to fit with crazy endurance. I'm talking comeback to where you used to blog and kind of gave up, but came back because you miss being able to talk. Miss being able to explain and have feelings and show the process.
Tumblr is great at getting art spread quickly and connecting with people, sure. But it's also really great for art theft and doxing- neither of these things are pleasant. Then you have your personal, professional websites. You know, where you try to be proper and hirable with plenty of examples of your work so someone hires you. And deviantart is great for critiques and sharing as well. But it isn't making a 3+ paragraph long post with multiple images and an added little tidbit about your feelings. No, that's what blogging is for. Putting the art and the personal together in one spot, saying exactly what you mean because it's your space. Posting all the art you want, because it's a place for you to display your work, and then look back on it later once you've grown.

So I guess what I'm saying is I want to come back. I know there isn't anyone out there to ask permission from. But at the same time I feel like I have to type this out and make sure that I know it will be hard to get back into the swing of things. And even if not now, eventually my life with pick up and be busy again. But how about we give it another go, for old time's sake?

(p.s. the whole time I've been typing this, the voice in my head has be Scottish. I'll take that as a good sign)
