The last time I blogged was September 17. The last time I posted on Instagram was September 18. While I was never prolific, 14 weeks is a significant gap, especially as I was almost getting into the swing of things.

When you don’t have the traditional support network of family and friends, chasing your goals is particularly challenging. If, like me, you’ve also learned to be a private person, blogging and using social media can feel odd.
