Well....I'm thinking so. I've been re-thinking the whole blog thing and I think I've reached a conclusion.
Blogging is somewhat fun. I enjoy taking pictures. I enjoy writing. I enjoy teaching others the things I've learned. And when I first started this blog I think it was good for me. But.....I have alot of hobbies. I have alot of things I'm trying to do and learn and volunteer for. I'm reaching my limit. And so, I've been reassessing blogging. It's probably not something I will ever make money at like some do. Making money blogging just sounds too scary to me. I had considered it as an option when I started this blog, but multiple tax forms and paperwork don't appeal to me.
So really this leaves two reasons why I'm blogging: because it's a fun way to keep myself accountable that I'm doing things as opposed to sitting around, and because I can share what I know with others. As for the former reason I'm now finding myself so busy that I don't have time to sit and say all the things I've been doing - I'd say that's a good thing. And as for the second reason, there are TONS of blogs on the web where people can find the same information that I have to offer.
I don't want to just disappear like some bloggers do without warning their readers, but I've also decided that I'm taking a break for the foreseeable future. Yes, I may start up again at some point in my life (so don't unsubscribe just in case!), but for now I'm not going to be blogging here anymore. (You can all start to cry right here....lol) Perhaps some day I'll decide to come back to post and work on making money at it. We'll see.
Another thing that may happen is that I've been playing with the idea of starting a blog to focus more on the guitar string jewelry I make. But that's just an idea, and I don't plan on actually doing it at this point. If I do, I'll put a link to it here for you all.
Thank you so much for being such good followers of this blog. Your support has been great! I've learned so much about myself over this short time of blogging and following others blogs - namely putting in cement that it is indeed okay to not be a "normal" young adult with "normal" life plans. It's okay to want to be a stay-at-home mom some day. It's okay to hold to my beliefs apart from the bandwagon. It's okay to grow in ways that the world may think are worthless.
Thank you all so much again. I hope you have enjoyed and gleaned from the posts I have made so far. God bless!
