Why I decided to start blogging again.
It is time to bring back the blog! I started blogging in 2004 on LiveJournal and kept up a daily blog called KellyUganda for almost ten years, mostly about my travels and work in east and central Africa. Then life, parenting, work, divorce, trauma, and addiction got in the way of my writing pursuits and I stopped blogging. I went through a tough time and did not take care of myself. My own interests turned from writing, activism, and photography to drinking, numbing my feelings, and ignoring my inner voice, amongst other destructive pursuits… However, thanks to a lot of support from family and friends, therapy and a lot of soul-searching, I’m grateful to say that the dark days are behind me and I’m now living a sober, productive, happy life again.
So what better time than the present to resume blogging!
Thanks for reading, and here goes something!
