Happy New Year everyone!
I’m just stopping in to give a little update! I am deep deep in boxes over here, so I haven’t had much time, or anytime rather, to blog!
However, I have been taking photos.
I am going to restart a 365 this year. So that means that I will be taking a photo a day around here. Don’t worry, I won’t post a photo everyday. Rather, once a week, you will get a post full of the photos of that week. Because frankly, I just don’t have the time or the energy to upload daily.
This blog will be basically the same, no grand plans for the new year. Although, it will become clear that I’m taking photography and writing a little bit more seriously. I finally decided that even though I will never be Dooce, Scary Mommy, or the Pioneer Woman in terms of blogging, I will continue to carve out my little corner here on the internet.
And my corner is about my life.
And the Photos of my life, and the stories about my life. I figure, you guys are reading so it must be interesting. And besides, I really just like having an online journal of what we are going through.
Posting might be a bit more sporadic than before though.
Because another thing that I have concluded is that I find myself sometimes forgetting to live life outside of the internet. I was getting so caught up in growing this blog and promoting this blog etc etc until I forgot to LIVE outside of this blog. I sat down and thought: when was the last time I just sat and read a book? When was the last time I went all day without being online? When was the last time I sat at Starbucks and just enjoyed my coffee with a good magazine? When was the last time I went on a photowalk? When was the last time I just window shopped for goodness sake?
This year is about getting back to that. It’s about getting back to my life.
Yes, I’ll still be blogging.
But my emphases on blogging is different. Instead of blogging to make money, or blogging to get out there, I will be blogging to document. Because I think my life is worth documenting. I want to be able to look back and see my progress, my struggles, my joys and my pains. I want to see the photos of my boy. Of me.
Now don’t get me wrong, if someone wants to pay me in the process, I’M SO DOWN! And I will still be participating in various projects around the web.
But it won’t be my LIFE.
So, I’ll see you guys soon.
