Hey yall! Have I seemed preoccupied? I have been in a writing funk for sure….It is normal I suppose after a consecutive 7 years of blogging…too go through slumps and periods of disinterest. I think that blogging has changed so much in the past 3 years. There is some really great content out there…and then there is also some folks just repeating what has been out there for a long time. I find myself in a bit of a quandary….do I take a break or do I muddle through? My mission is to share clever ideas—ideas that you couldn’t find somewhere else—unique projects and recipes—and I still love doing those things and sharing them. Lately it seems I haven’t had any really fun ideas to share….my mojo is low! It happens…and I know something will spark me again…and I will want to share. When I started blogging in 2010, it was before pinterest, smartphones, Facebook was young, no instagram….Now it seems there are so many sources to gather inspirations—blogs are so old school. Now when you blog…you have to be diligent about sharing it everywhere just to be heard. One blog post takes about 3 hours beginning to end…photos, story, editing, sharing….it is a lot more work than most people think. I still love it….I just don’t have much to share right now. I hate to publish a post and think to myself “that post is kind of lame…” that is a sucky feeling. I always want to be respectful of your time. If I don’t feel like something is worth reading than it should never be published. So if it seems a bit quiet over here…just know that I will be here when something is interesting and worth sharing. I don’t want to ever just “post to get a post out”. I hope you understand and stick with me;)
