5 months ago I shut down Blogger one day and just…didn't look back. I stopped writing, stopped taking pictures, stopped reading -not just one or two- but ALL my favorite blogs….cold turkey. I'm not really sure what happened: I hadn't been consciously feeling like I needed a break from the blog world and since this is only a small, personal "just for funzies" deal, it's not like I was under any kind of pressure other than what comes naturally with being a crazeballs type-A perfectionist.
So I went about all the other parts of my life and focused on other things. But at some point, to quote my dad's oh-so-eloquent colloquialism "you have to sh*t or get off the pot." In order to do that, I suppose you have to ask yourself why you do something like this in the first place…why you put your heart and so much of your time into something like a blog. Until today I wasn't ready to ask myself those questions...wasn't sure if I'd ever come back here, or even completely sure that this little blog still existed out in the Interwebs.
You know what I decided today, just now in fact? I really have missed this little place. I've missed all of you and reading about your adventures. (I was so disappointed to see some of the faves from my reading list also seem to be on an extended blog-cation. But hey, I get it!) I decided that it's perfectly okay not to have an end-game here. It's okay to not be -or even care about being- the biggest, baddest, money making-est blogger on the block. It's okay to do me.
See you guys soon!
