They say the only thing constant is change, right?
I've been doing a lot of this the last few weeks:
And this is what I think: I am closing this blog.
I am really enjoying my time at home, crafting and filling my Etsy shop and getting to know the Etsy world, but I find that a rather large portion of the time I could be creating is spent on this blog, or on reading other blogs and commenting and trying to break my way into their world.
I am not enjoying that.
I feel like I'm forcing myself to write blog posts when I don't really want to and about things I don't want to post about, trying to find the thing that will make people like me. I'm worried about followers, when the reality is that even the regular readers of my other blog didn't follow me over to here. I miss my old blog. I miss my old readers! I miss being able to say what I want, when I want for no reason other than because I want. I miss being able to read and look at blogs for enjoyment instead of because they might be valuable for me to connect with.
So I'm done. I will continue to document the tearing-apart-of and putting-back-together-of my house on my original blog, because that seems like fun, and all else over there will be business as usual. If you are interested in reading and don't have that blog addy, shoot me a message and I'll send it to you. The rest of my time, I will be able to focus on crafting and Etsy.
