I was reading somewhere a while ago about how there are hundreds of thousands of blogs out there…many of which have one or two posts and then are abandoned and long since forgotten. I’m sure that the creators of these said blogs had the best of intentions when they were created. I mean, the idea of a blog is really cool. It’s an outlet where you can share your thoughts, feeling, and ideas with THE WHOLE WORLD. Kinda crazy when you think about it.
Anyway, when I started this blog almost a year ago (officially anyway…and can I say how crazy it is that it’s been a year!? So much has changed in the last 12 months!) I had big plans. My intention was to blog 4 to 5 days a week. I wanted to fill my blog with DIY projects and tutorials, yummy recipes, quick tips for everyday life, and, of course, photography. The cool thing is that I actually did that for a while…the sad part is that I just couldn’t keep up. And not only could I not keep up (let’s be honest, I probably could have), but blogging became a chore and something I stressed about in my life. That was NOT what I was going for. So, I took some breaks from blogging.
And, I’m ok with that. This blog has evolved and changed and I assume that it will continue to do so as the years go on. I don’t plan on abandoning my blog because when you live an entire county width away from most of the people that you love and adore in your life, a blog can be a great way to share with them.
My sister texted me the other day informing me (like any good sister would) that I hadn’t posted in almost two months. Ugh…I hadn’t realized it had been that long. She thinks I may have lost most of my readers (all 5 of you), but she says she’ll keep reading (like I said, she’s a good sister). My response was that I am awful…I’ve written at least 20 posts in my head and probably taken all of the photos to go along with them, but when it comes to sitting down, editing photos, and writing a post…it just doesn’t happen. But, I’m realizing that it is what it is. I am getting married in less than a month after all and that has all but taken over my life. But I’m ok with that too.
So, all this to say, on this very rainy day in September (and now a Severe Thunderstorm Warning) I want you to know that this blog will change and evolve, but I don’t plan on abandoning it. Luckily, I have my sister to help remind me not to.
And what’s a post without a photo, right? Oh, the pup…
Ready and waiting for belly pets…
