I now have 492 of you who have chosen to follow along on this little journey and I've had a little internal celebration every time another follower joins my blog! It is exciting to think I've almost hit 500 followers! I also have over 750 people who have asked to receive blog updates via email!!!
I haven't posted anything for over a week. I'm kind of rethinking my priorities and spending a lot of time working in the yard. I'm just not so sure I want to keep up with the circus of documenting everything I do and make anymore. Taking the photos, editing the photos, writing the posts etc. It all takes a lot of time! I've started to think more about the hours that go into it all and I'm wondering if it's the best use of my time.
During that time I could be reading.
Or making stuff.
I could be reading a LOT more and making a LOT more because I'd gain all those blogging hours.
So. Those are my thoughts.
I've had some really sweet emails from a lot of you lately - thanking me for sharing my projects and instructions and that makes me feel that it HAS been a good use of my time. I like knowing that I've encouraged so many people to be creative.
But, how long do you blog? When do you stop? If nothing else, I've left an 18 month journal for my grandchildren, or great-grandchildren etc. If they should ever want to, they can learn more about their grandma (or great grandma) by reading a year and a half in the life . . .
Maybe I should just take a nice, long blogging break.
Or, maybe I'm done.
Whatever happens - in the words of Martha, "It's a good thing!"
