I’m a ‘list girl’. At any given moment, I have a fairly extensive to-do list. I’m also OCD about getting every item marked off that list. I get great pleasure from lining through all the things I’ve done, and I get great stress from leaving things undone on the list. Lately, the latter is where my blogging has been falling. I’ve been just awful at blogging lately, even though it’s always on my list of things to get done. I used to love blogging. It used to be easier. Now it’s just become stressful because it’s this thing I know I should get done, but I just never get to it.
I think one reason I haven’t been blogging is because the blog is having an identity crisis. When it started, it was a quilting blog. It fit in that nice little box. But in the last year or so, I have done very little quilting. Like, maybe one quilt in the last year. So I really have nothing quilty to talk about. Now I have baby on the brain all the time. I could maybe write lots about my baby. But one, that would be very boring to everyone else. And two, it seems odd to write about babies on a quilting blog. So perhaps this blog will evolve into a mommy blog someday. But now, I just don’t have the time or energy to put into it. I’m just starting to figure out how to be a full-time mommy/housekeeper. Then I have a part-time sewing job (which incidentally makes it much harder to sew for fun), and I’m about to start another part-job back at the doctor’s office I worked out before I got pregnant. So blogging just isn’t there right now.
So this isn’t a goodbye forever. It’s just a ‘see ya later’. This isn’t the end of the blog, it’s just a closing of this chapter in my life. The blog is going up on the shelf for a while. And who knows, if I find a way to get back into quilting, maybe this will come back better than ever as a quilting blog. If I find the desire to blog about other things, maybe this will morph into something else. Maybe I’ll pop in to blog updates every now and then…
I want to thank all my readers I’ve had over the years, and I’m so thankful for all the friends I’ve made through this little adventure. It’s truly been a joy to meet so many absolutely cool people. Hope to see ya soon!!
