Why Come Back Now?

From an admin point of view, coming back to blogging now seems like a weird choice, right? Especially given that all I've read for the last month is how blog views are down across the board. To me, though? This seemed like the obvious time to come back to blogging. As I write this it's the first morning of lockdown, things feel different and - just like when I first started Little Fickle - all I really want is a place to help, if I can - a place to speak, given everything. I feel like I should preface this by saying I am aware I am lucky right now, I have managed to keep a job that I normally work from home in anyway, I have good open spaces that are ours privately, I am within walking distance of shops that are seemingly fairly well stocked. However, in times of uncertainty like we're in now? It's okay to still feel down, or upset.

Already missing the boys.

Mainly, though? I feel completely hopeless. Not only because the wellbeing of myself and those around me still feels out of my hands despite lockdown, not even because I can't see my partner, mostly because I want to do more for people if I can and I just don't know how. So, I've decided to write. Like every other time that I've written when I felt like I couldn't or wouldn't get through something. Little Fickle has always been a home for me, and now feels like the exact right time to come home, if there ever was one. I'm going to share what I'm doing to keep my head above water, what I'm doing in order to help businesses around me and literally what I'm doing to get through lockdown every day.

I know it's been said so much that it doesn't feel like a real phrase anymore, but we really are in unprecedented times. We've never gone through something like this before, we don't know how to act in this situation, and that's okay. Do whatever helps you get through this. For me, that's writing, and so welcome back to Little Fickle.
