I have thought a lot about whether or not to pull the plug on my blogging adventure and about how to break the news if I did. After much consideration, I have decided to stop blogging. The decision has been a long time coming, and I have given it much thought.
As readers, I believe you deserve an explanation, but I find myself struggling to express all of my reasons. There are so many. The truth is that blogging daily is a lot of work. And finding time (and money) to do household projects to blog about is challenging. I also find myself comparing my home, my writing, myself to other bloggers which rips at my self-esteem and leaves me ungrateful for all I have been blessed with. But I think the final straw was that I just lost the joy. I haven’t felt fulfilled by my blogging at all lately. It has been a chore, another task on my never-ending “To Do” list. I find myself resenting the time I spend blogging, wishing instead that I was cleaning or playing with Edward or knitting or reading a book.
Life’s too short. I need to pursue things that interest me. I am a Gemini and my interests constantly shift. Some may see that as lack of stick-with-it-ness, but I think it makes me diverse and interesting. Sure I am a little flighty, but I am OK with that. So, I am off to pursue new passions.
I do want to thank you so much for your support these last few months. Reading your comments was something I looked forward to daily. Your encouragement really touched my heart and I definitely wouldn’t have stuck it out this long without you.
