The One Where I Explain Why I’m Taking a Step Back…

As you may have noticed, my posts have been a little sparse as of late. I have decided to take a step back from blogging for a little while. I don’t think it will be permanent, but I don’t want to put a specific time limit on my hiatus.

You might be asking, but why? (Or you might not care at all) Well I’ll try to explain the best I can.

When I first began blogging I really enjoyed it. I looked forward to writing every post and I loved seeing my numbers grow. It brought a lot of fulfillment to my life. I’ve always loved teaching (I was one before I became a stay-at-home mom) and I loved that through my tutorials I was teaching people. Plus I had always loved writing lesson plans and I felt like I was still continuing that through both my tutorials and my Mommy School.

However, lately, I have not felt that way. Instead my blog has almost become a chore to me. And I think my readers deserve better than a blogger who is doing it simply because she feels obligated. I started falling behind on posts and it was stressing me out, but I still couldn’t quite find the motivation to write. Not a good combination.

Now, my life has gotten a little busier lately, and I’m sure that’s contributed. I started taking care of a little baby boy, so having a 3 year old, 8 month old, and 8 week old takes a lot more time. I felt like I wasn’t being the type of mom and caregiver I wanted to be. I was always focused in what I needed to get done on the computer or what project needed to be photographed, finished, edited and blogged about. These past few days I’ve hardly thought about blogging at all. I knew I needed to write this post, but I wasn’t stressing about it. Instead I’ve been a lot more focused on my kids. I’ve noticed a huge difference in the way I treat my daughters and I think that there is all the explanation I should have to give as to why I’m taking a step back.

When I was discussing taking a step back with my ever-supportive husband he asked me what the drawbacks were. I explained that the biggest downside to me was that I felt like I was letting you, my readers, down. I mean, I haven’t even finished the Mommy School series. And my absolute favorite comments and emails I get are the ones telling me that I helped them. And that’s why I can’t say I’m giving up for good. However, when I do resume, it will be because I want to and I’m excited to, not because I feel like I have to.

I do want y’all to know that I have updated my tutorials page to include pictures. Hopefully this will make navigating past tutorials a little easier. I will eventually be doing this with my recipe page as well.

Thanks so much for understanding. I may check in here and there on my Facebook page. Also, thank you for being such fabulous readers, and I hope to see you all again!
