Which was the whole reason I started blogging in the first place, just one year ago.
I never would of imagined that this little blog would blow up like it did. I am grateful, however I feel the direction that it has turned is not the direction I had intended it to go.
I like blogging, its my little 'me time' where I can share my life, with others (or not, that was never really the point) I just wanted to have some running record of my life with my kids. So whenever I got tired and stopped I could save it and have it, and show them that they drove me freaking nuts, on a daily basis.
So I am going back to basics.
I won't be sponsoring any more blogs for awhile. I loved it while it lasted - but I think I am over it. I have met some amazing ladies that I will continue to email with and read their blogs religiously. For that, I am thankful.
I just want to concentrate on my family and my friends, my real life for now. That is when the best inspiration happens - when you're out actually living life.
I have also witnessed a not nice side of blogging. Some think just because they are behind a computer screen, it gives them the right to be mean or say hurtful things. Sometimes this little world feels more like high school - I am so over high school. I have noticed the bigger you get - the more the bullies come out. Some need a few lessons in respect - and maybe class. But I digress.
I plan on blogging for me, if you care what I have to stay - cool. stay. I appreciate it. If you don't that is fine also. I figure I might lose some followers because of this - and that is fine. I don't want you to be here, if you don't want to be.
Thanks Tiffany & Natalie for inspiring this post. I knew in my heart that something just didn't feel right, thanks for giving me the courage to just --say it. (er, write it!)
