11 is the number of months we have been calling Raleigh home. And we like it, the vibe and the whole city in general just seem to suit us. And now that we've closed on our forever home, we are ready to lay down our roots. To make this city, ours.
I am now only
blogging once a month. I have lost the oomph to keep it up and keep up
with all things social media. I remember when Twitter was my vice and
now I rarely go and visit and when I do I never find anything that I
missed. Though there are people I miss but they too have moved on and I
am sure not missing me. I think social media is sort of fickle that way...
gone back and forth with possibly saying good bye to this little spot
on the internet and maybe starting fresh. After having my first child
and finding the "mommy bloggers" I went all gung-ho with it and really
feel like I'm more lost than I was before. I was never really looking to
make money from this or any blog really and I think I got wrapped up in
all the excitement of things that were happening for other bloggers.
They were attending a slew of conferences and I thought I should be too.
They were getting invited to cool events and I thought, why not me too?
The difference? They were working hard for those opportunities and
branding themselves and their blogs. They were/are turning their blogs
into businesses. I was just following along, thinking I needed to do the
same. Only I didn't. And I haven't.
So that is
where I am. Do I keep going and just change the name of this blog, along
with the url or do I being anew? I've had this blog for 5 years and
already changed the name once. I know that I don't want to let it go
completely but is starting fresh the way to go? Just when I thought I
had the answers...
