I had to take a break.
Towards the end of 2011, I found myself posting because I felt like I needed to post, not because I had something on my heart I wanted to share. I started studying the Google Analytics, more than my actual content. The holidays were crazy busy, and when I finally crashed at home at night, it was a struggle to stare at the blank screens. I had nothing to share. A blogger burnout.
In the past month, I've thought long and hard about this site and how to proceed- whether to lower my expectations, schedule posts in advance, or even shut down entirely.
After a lot of waffling, I've decided I'm just going to take a deep breath. I'm going to blog when I feel like blogging. It may be four days a week, it may only be one. But as I look ahead to 2012, I want to simplify... Savour time with my sweet husband when he's home and not studying, visit with family and friends in town, take a moment to call those out of town, tackle projects around the house, and just be.
I have no idea what 2012 is going to bring, but I'm excited to get back on track. Thanks for sticking around!
