Nothing like a little Pointer Sisters on a Thursday morning to get your blood pumpin…
Thank goodness for the 80’s on 8 channel.
This post has been a long time coming.
My neglect of this blog is shameful.
I’ve run it into the ground with my lack of posting.
A couple of thousand hits a day has turned to crickets.
And the crickets are only showing up thanks to pinterest!
What used to be fun has seemed like a chore.
I’ve wrestled with calling it quits for about the last year.
But could never pull the plug.
See, the thing is…
I really love blogging.
I love the sharing and the photographing and the writing.
Like, really love it.
I write blog posts in my head on a daily basis.
They just never make it to the keyboard.
So I finally asked myself…
“What is your PROBLEM?”
I want to strip all the crapola away and get back to basics.
Simple as that.
I don’t want sponsors or ads. I don’t want to link my projects up to a bazillion parties to get hits. I don’t want to become one of those “over eager” bloggers who feels the need to post every.single.day. even if it means coming up with ridiculous material like “how to make your own cheesecloth by weaving dandelions together.” Ugh.
I don’t want to “not” post because I deem something not “blog worthy.”
I used to totally avoid posting anything too personal. But you know what? My most popular posts have been ones where I share personal thoughts, feelings or stories. And come to think of it…my FAVORITE blogs to read are not the ones that are project cranking machines, but ones that are REAL and honest.
I want authenticity.
If I feel like tearing down some walls and rebuilding them and giving a step-by-step photographic tutorial, then SO BE IT.
But if I feel like telling you about the time when I was 12 and my mom yelled at the slow-as-molasses Kmart checker (as she was buying feminine products) that she’d be DONE with her period by the time he rang her up…well that’s fair game too.
If I lose readers?
Cause “I got a new attitude.”
I’m blogging how I want to blog, Jack.
You with me?
