Like time no see! I've missed blogging severely, I really have. When I did it actively it was a wonderful creative outlet, and I loved networking with new people.
So I'm sure you're thinking "If you loved it so much..." You know the rest. ;) I tried a few times to come back and was always unsuccessful and it frustrated me to bits. But I think I've finally figured out why I had such a hard time. The way I was blogging. Yup, pretty simple right? Confused yet?
Let me explain. I started this blog to document my journey in this life, but I also fell in love with several blogs and wanted to be one I the "cool kids" too. So I scurried on over to my google search and did some research on successful blogging and how to tailor my blog to get readers an be THAT blog. Pretty soon I had a blog schedule that took up way too much of my time and it was overwhelming. My husband wasn't happy and it just wasn't working. I couldn't find a happy medium.
After several months of contemplation, I've had an epiphany (more like a duh!! moment). While reflecting on my tag line "My journey through life as a stay at home mom and housewife," I realized that's what I needed to blog about. My journey. My life. My life doesn't fit into a mold. It doesn't follow rules, and it surely doesn't care about a blogging schedule. So while I am coming back, there won't necessarily be a craft every Monday, or a new recipe every Friday. You will see my life as it comes through my eyes. You will see my journey. And if that never makes me one of the cool kids, so be it. I've always been a little bit of a rebel anyway. ;)
Over the next week I'll be switching over to Wordpress. I haven't decided if I'll import my old posts or just start fresh and move forward. I hope everyone will follow me there. I look forward to getting back into the blogging community and building friendships with my fellow bloggers once more. Enjoy the rest of your week. :)
