When I revamped the blog and merged everything I write about on to http://www.iamdwj.com, I warned you all that my posting would not be consistent anymore. I religiously posted 5 days a week, every week for 4 years. Currently I’ve been posting about 2 maybe 3 times a week and you know what? I don’t feel bad about it like I thought I would.
I decided that for 2012 in order to be a better me, I had to be a bad blogger. I’ve been battling the thought of going back to school for my doctorate (gulp) so I’ve been researching my options. I’ve been finding a lot of fulfillment and joy in knitting and have really been encouraged to do more and even sell my necklaces (still in the works). I haven’t been taking photos as much as I’d like but when I do I feel like I go all out with these great projects that I love. I’ve spent time with my husband, going on dates and just reconnecting – we will have been married for 9 years in May! I’ve been spending time with my family. I’ve been journaling, cooking, you name it and I’ve been doing it. I’ve been trying to feed my creative soul and find fulfillment and happiness in my life outside of work and I have to admit, I’ve been pretty damn happy over these last few months. I feel a little bad sometimes like my blog is this lonely space but then I get a comment on an old post, or I interact with someone on Twitter or Instagram and the fear of not blogging slowly goes away. I know that my readership isn’t as high as it was before but I have loyal readers that stick with me through thick and thin and I thank you for that. Besides, I don’t get paid to blog (just a few perks here and there) but I do love the interaction with you all. That’s honestly the only reason why I still post.
I write this to say, I’m not gone (or hiding). I’m still here even when it is sporadic. I even have a few products I need to photograph and review because they’re coming out in May (I love a good beauty item) and I have a fun event I’m going to on Saturday that I will share in photographs on Monday. I guess I just wanted to say, I’m sorry if I’m a bad blogger but I’m just working on being a better me and sometimes that takes more of my time and attention than blogging does. Have a great weekend.
