Reality Check

**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.

Dear Blog,

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.

With love,

Dear Sarah,
I understand completely. While I will miss our times together, I wish you the best on your journey and look forward to hearing from you when you are able. Be free, young one. Keep on making babies and doing household projects and update me during your next binge!
