A New Beginning

My life certainly has its seasons…  

I have honestly just abandoned this blog for the past six months.  It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything creative or worth sharing, I have just been so distracted.  Life has been busy and ever-changing and I just didn’t feel like trying to squeeze my blog into the chaos. 

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE sharing my ideas or something I did with the kids and getting tons of feedback and compliments on it (who wouldn’t ?)  But, blogging is a lot of work, especially if you blog regularly.  Especially if you host a link party or any other regularly occurring event.    Blogging is not for everybody.  Lots of people start blogs and give up on them in a few weeks or months.  There is usually no money to be made from blogging.  There is a lot of skill involved in creating something, taking clear, crisp photos, writing about it and putting it all together, sharing it in a blog post and promoting it in the hopes that it receives any recognition.  I repeat, a lot of skill.  Some people, I’m sure you have seen, may be very skilled at making crafts then unable to capture it well in a photo or not very descriptive when writing about it.  Or maybe they can do all of that but are clueless about setting up their blog page properly.  I haven’t even mentioned the TIME it takes to accomplish this.  Most craft bloggers are also busy moms.  There are only 24 hours in a day.  You do the math.
That being said, I am still coming back to blogging.  I still have ideas to share.  I still have something to say.  I also realize how far I have came since I first started blogging and it would really be a shame to give it up.  I have grown and learned so much.  I can’t just let it go. 

So, now I am ready to give this blog a new beginning.  Head in a new direction, maybe even a new name.  I am excited to get started!  Stay tuned to see what comes next!

  1. It seems that so many bloggers have had to take a break, glad your are back.

  2. Good luck to you. I totally get it...I feel as if I'm lucky if I'm on here once a month now.
