About the blog.....
So, I realized that in the last several months I have lost a purpose/focus about my blog. At one point I wanted to write about birthy things but I feel like so many other bloggers do that better than me. I've thought about writing about parenting but I did that for The Mom Crowd and didn't want to add it to my own blog. I used to tell a lot more funny stories about the kids--but either they stopped being funny, I lost my sense of humor, or I just couldn't muster up the energy to write anything. I think I feel a little more self conscious about what I write now--plus I find that Facebook is a pleasant distraction and way to connect with people.
Because we are living overseas now the blog is a good place to update family and friends with photos but honestly, that feels boring to me. My blog has lost its spice. I've thought about closing it down several times because I'm not sure who even checks in on it anymore and if it is worth it. I've been asking myself WHY do I have a blog in the first place? It feels like my reasons are different now than when I first started blogging.
There are many things I enjoy writing about--cooking, knitting, parenting, birth junkie topics-but so many are much more experienced than I am, better writers, and more interesting.
Grandma--I know you are checking in and I promise I will keep posting pictures of your great-grandbabies so you can see them! I'm just trying to figure out what else I want my blog to be about :)
