Now, to explain why I have been absent from blogging for the past week or so…
I decided I needed to take a blogging break and do some thinking. When I first started my blog a few months ago, I never realized how time consuming it could be and that I would start to feel stressed out over participating in some of the weekly blogging events like “Pink Saturday” and “Blue Monday”.
Even though I have really enjoyed participating in those events, I was beginning to feel a little overwhelmed with trying to come up with new and creative blog posts each week for both events and to also find the time to try and visit as many of my fellow bloggers as I could. Add that into a full-time working girls life and I’m sure many of you will understand how I was feeling.
I realized that I don’t want to give up blogging altogether, but I have decided that for the time being, I will no longer be participating in the weekly blogging events. I will however continue to add new blog posts on my own time schedule and I will also continue visiting my fellow bloggers as often as I can.
That has been the one thing I have enjoyed the most over the past several months. I have met so many wonderful new friends through blogging and I have really enjoyed visiting all of your blogs and seeing and reading about the wonderful decorating and craft projects that you are working on and all of the collected treasures that you have acquired in your antiquing, thrift store and garage sale hunts. For me, blogland is like an on-line decorating and collecting magazine and I have found so many great decorating ideas in my visits to your blogs that I would like to use in my own home and they have even inspired me to begin some new collections of my own.
My greatest hope is that you won’t forget about me and that you will continue to visit my blog as often as you can.
That’s all for now. Take care and come back and visit again soon !!
