Yes, I realize I have been absent from my blog for a while. My life has been crazy and filled with decisions, trips, family and spending time with Jake. And I love all of those things. I have enjoyed my days without stressing about what to post.
I realized that I have been trying to grow this blog just to say that it's growing but I've gotten away from posting quality writing and began filling my posts with meaningless words just to say I posted that day.
So from now on, I may or may not post every day. If I have something to share, I will share it. Blogging became like that homework that you didn't want to do, so you put it off for as long as you can. That's not what it's supposed to be about. Blogging should be a fun and creative outlet! These words are coming easy because it's something I've thought about and something I feel is important. Dragging out meaningless words when you have nothing to say isn't a fun task by any means.
I know that writing quality posts will gain readership and leave me feeling much better than knowing I just got a ton of followers because they did what they were supposed to do by following me to link up. Don't get me wrong, I love link parties to interact with other bloggers and to find new blogs. I wouldn't have found a lot of my favorite blogs if it weren't for those. But it can't be all that I focus on.
I still want to be involved in the "blogging world" with box swaps, ornament swaps, etc. It's a fun way to interact with others and get to know them better. I want to get back to what blogging is about and have fun with it. I don't want to be so wrapped up in giveaways and following parties that I don't enjoy it anymore. I want to have time to read all of my favorite blogs and comment and get to know them better. And...it's gonna be awesome.
