why I blog – and why I’ve been lost around these parts

Well hello there! I know I’ve tried to promise a few times that once I got settled in the new job, I would get back to my five-day-a-week posting cycle. The truth is, I just don’t have time. I love my new job. I love my furry family (husband included). Because of all the commitments that come with that, my hours are limited.

I’ve toyed with the idea of leaving blogging all together but the real reason I stay, is because I like sharing what I do. I blog because I like to create. Do I like it for the numbers? No. Do I like it for the money? Hell no because I don’t make anything worth my while. Why do I blog? Because I love making things. End of story.

So from now on, I’m not going to apologize for any delays in between posts. I’m not going to stress myself out about posting or not posting. I have no desire to be a big blog. I have no need to get upset at myself for not having post materials. If you stick around, thanks! If not, don’t worry. I won’t hold it against you. Promise.

That said, I’ve actually been knee deep in projects but just haven’t had a chance to post due to life getting in the way. We’ve been working on the house, I made 90+ custom wedding invitations, and am hosting a bridal shower this coming weekend so there is plenty of stuff to share.

Hope you all had a great long weekend. For those of you still hanging around, I’ll see you soon :)

PS – If you care about my desires for this blog as it “grows up”, check out this post from last March.

    I’m here too and will be. I’ve lost my moe joe with blogging and can’t seem to find it. I’m like you too, and I don’t care about the numbers, etc…I do it to share my passion and try to inspire others. Thanks for sharing you and keeping it real. I’ve been wondering about you by the way.
    Hope you are doing well and that the hurricanes stay away :)

    Not going anywhere. Your blog is awesome & the things you share are well worth the wait whenever or however long it takes for you to share them. Don’t worry about numbers…when your awesome projects are shared, you will gain new followers – many more than you might lose.

    Still a reader! It isn’t quantity it’s quality…I’ll still be here when you do post! As a blogger myself, I find it hard to be inspired to write everyday especially when spending all my design juice on clients…do what works for you…then it will be good for us!!
