Is This Thing On?

Hey guys, 
Most of you probably forgot I exist because it’s been about 1000 years since I posted. I took a hiatus. I needed some time to figure out what I was doing with this blog. The hiatus was supposed to be short, but then life happened. 
During my away time I’d think back to this blog and make a mental note to post. Then time got ahead of me, as it sometimes does.  I got to thinking about why I took the hiatus. In short, I was getting too in my head. Worrying about my numbers, my views, my “niche”. You know what happened? Blogging became less about just enjoying the moment and interacting with others. I started to really resent blogging. I felt like I could only post certain things because the not all posts fell into my “niche”.

Then when my yearly site fees came up I had to really think about if I wanted to renew or not. I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t blogging I had grown to dislike, it was the imaginary rules I pushed on myself.Blogging is supposed to be fun, right? So why was I making it a chore? Who made these rules anyways?
Who says I have to follow them?

 


So,  I’m breaking the chains, and the rules. I’m following my own blogging path.
From here on out my blog is going to me a mixed bag of posts. not following some niche.  I’m not going to dwell on the numbers.  I’m going to post things I want to.  I’m going to make my blogging experience fun again.  I hope some of you stick around. 🙂 

 

Thankful Thursday

It’s already November, what?! It seems like this year has gone by quicker than usual. I’m afraid I’ll blink and it will be Christmas! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.The Month of November I typically like to post  about the little things I have to be thankful for, just as a reminder that the little things are the important things. 

This week has been nuts. I woke up Wednesday and was dizzy and nauseous. My husband told me to go lay down and he took care of everything. The kids. The house. Everything.  While I know that’s part of being a parent, I’m still beyond grateful for him on days like this.  Because of him I got to rest and recuperate and now I’m feeling 96% better.  Bonus? He is also dad-soloing this Saturday while I’m out of town. 

Depression Is A Fickle B

Hey strangers!

I’ve been on a little blog hiatus. To be honest the last few months have been mentally exhausting.  Some days it has taken everything in me just to get out of bed and do the daily things (making sure the kids are taken care of)  as a result I have been a crappy blogger. 

Things are starting to come around though! 🙂
