I have been blogging now for almost 5 years and have enjoyed it most of that time. I have shared projects, my thoughts, my opinions, my life experiences from day to day and even shared part of my most deepest feelings during this time.
I am afraid though it maybe time for me to stop. I have noticed that I hardly get any comments on the projects I post and there are other things I can do with that time that it takes to set up a project for photographing, taking the pictures, editing the pictures, uploading the pictures, trying to remember a supply list and then writing about the project. And now for me to share files takes even more time to make sure the files are correct, get them ready in two different formats and then upload them and then link them back to my blog. In all it generally takes at least an hour for me to do all this and
when you think of how many hours I have put in to it then that is a lot
of hours I could spend doing something else. While an hour may not seem like much to most people it is precious to me. I know a lot of people forget I work a full time job as well and that crafting is not my life but my hobby.
I have had a love hate relationship with this blog of mine. I hate that I feel so tied to it but love that I can share so much. I know there is way more love than hate though. I love that so many of you have been supportive during rough times I have experienced and even shared your experiences with me, always making me realize I am not alone in any trial or tribulation I face in my life.
I have posts scheduled to finish out the week. After that I am not sure if I will continue. Maybe after 5 years it is time to move on to something else in my life...what it is I have no idea.
