**This blog post is more for me than you, the reader. But I wanted to keep you in-the-loop as to my thoughts on blogging at this point in my life.
I love you.
I love that you help me keep family up-to-date on the happenings of our household. I love that I can look back on past years entries and see memories that have been recorded. I love that you motivate me to get things done in my house. And I love that you have inspired me to learn how to better edit pictures.
But I have grown annoyed with you.
I realized the other day that you had become another thing on my to do list and not a hobby that I enjoy (as much as I used to). I feel weighted down with posts I have swimming around in my head. I become guilty when I think of the posts I did during my first pregnancy, and the fact that my pregnancy related blogging has been next to non-existant with this baby.
So I am making a few changes.
I will no longer feel the need to update you three times a week. I read once that regular blogging was something that would help me one day be able to make money off of my blog - but then reality hit and I realized.... As much as I love blogging and as much as I would love to be able to make money off of this hobby - it is not going to happen. Because of this change, I will most likely, once again, go on blogging "binges" (as my husband affectionately calls them) - in which I post a lot in a day or week's time and then possibly go for 2-3 weeks without new content.
I will learn to be ok with this. It is going to be hard for me at first - but I will not be tied to you.
Blog, I want you to be a fun hobby once again. Not something I have to do but something I get to do.
I hope you understand.
