Singing The Blogging Blues

I'm just not feeling this blogging gig these days. Since Christmas I have been trying to get back into the swing of posting regularly and it just hasn't happened. I know my family and a few others read on a fairly regular basis, so I will just have to apologize and promise to try to do better.

The thing is, for a change, I actually have lots of stuff outside my home to do. We work, live, sleep, and play here. All day, everyday. So I relish the opportunity to do something outside these walls. If I don't, I don't really have anything to write about.

Honestly, writing about the latest coupon adventure, pantry reorganizing, or decorating project just isn't floating my boat these days. I never intended for this blog to become all about those things. I just got so excited when I found all those blogs about the things I am interested in that I jumped in with both feet. Taking part and enjoying all the comradery and learning lots as well.

My blog started out to be what the title implies, a look through my life. My thoughts, feelings, opinions and interest, the things I do and think about. As shocking as it may seem to isn't my house, pantry or kitchen all the time. LOL. Recently that has been more about reading, painting, singing and daydreaming and planning my future than anything else.

I never really even thought about people really reading or commenting on what I wrote but when they did I felt a lot of pressure to continue to produce a blog that would be interesting to others and frankly that in itself became a burden to me. I need to get back to what I intended in the beginning whether it is interesting to others or not. It has to be real for me before I can really enjoy doing it.

So, if there is anyone out there, besides my family, still reading this I hope you will bear with me as I go through some changes here. Hopefully for the better. But I'm not making ANY promises!

Hey Carrie, I totally go through times when I hate to blog and times when I like it. I know I want to keep a record of my life (reason for blog) but I can't stand writing in my journal (something I did on a regular basis up until 6 years ago). It's way easier for me to type things up rather than write them down for some reason. Anyway, hope you and your family are doing well. Tell Grandma hello for us when you see her next!!

I *so* get what you're saying. It was so hard for me to come back with any regularity after Christmas. I wrote about it I think. There is more to me than my frugality and pantry as well.


Though you'd not really know it from my blog.

Don't you worry about it. Write what you want, when you want.
