The blogpost before this one was the first in many months. In the intro of said past blogpost was that I made a resolution to be more consistent with my blogging a year ago. Ironically, that article was supposed to come out a month earlier than it actually did. I finished writing the content for it in a day and thought that it’d be up for the interweb to see in the next – but it wasn’t.
I just want to be clear(er) and say that these are my thoughts and my opinions on how I, as a volunteer community builder, consider taking a break from volunteer work to avoid a burnout. Other volunteers might have their own methods, preferences, and opinions but I hope to create a discussion on how our communities here in the Philippines see volunteering and how inactivity doesn’t necessarily mean the loss of passion.
Yes, this is a new blog; and yes, it’s title isn’t something as corny as Ashlinspiraiton.
I’ve been gone from the blogosphere for quite some time now. A year, give or take. And disconnecting myself from my obligations to churn out blogposts experience after experience made me reflect on what type of content I wanted to create compared to what I was currently serving. I wanted a space where I could share what I’ve learned, that challenges me to delve deeper than what was revealed – not a documentation of the mundane blow-by-blow program flow I seemed to be stuck in as of late.
