Fits and Starts

my true blue spirit level bracelet

So, Sherry, I thought you quit writing this blog. I see you are back. What's up?

Thanks for asking. When I decided to give up the blog, I felt a lot of pressure to write every day. The pressure was self imposed. I always loved writing it. I am one of those people who rarely runs out of ideas, but it really was taking up an extraordinary amount of time. Plus, the pundits were talking about backlinks and reciprocal mentions and then I just couldn't keep up.

The truth is, I missed writing it. I missed reading your comments and also your blog posts. So, I'm back. I probably won't write everyday and feel a great relief realizing that this is not necessary and I'm not all that interesting. (Even though my followers who left me are welcome back)

So, that's it for now. I hope you have wonderful plans for the new year. 12 days in and I'm still taking good care of myself. I'm contemplating the switch from being vegetarian to vegan (going on 3 days now) and doing some new work I'm excited about.

Now, I'm going to curl up in bed with my favorite present, a NOOK color. It's almost as good as, well you know....

Read a bit and kiss the ones you love,

I had some self-imposed pressures regarding my blog as well. Then, about a month ago, I realized that nobody was forcing me to blog 5-7 times a week. What a revelation! Now I do it when I feel like it. Such a relief.

Sometimes, I am my own worst enemy!

Thank you kindly everyone, I am really glad you stopped by.

Nice to see you back! I've missed reading your blog.
No pressure blogging is the way to go.

Once in a while when I was sitting at the workbench working until late in the night I would think, "I wonder what Sherry's been up to?" I missed reading your blog and hearing your perspective on things. I'm so glad you're back! xo

Yay! Do what works for you personally. You're the only one who has to live your life. That's my new take on it anyway. Glad you're back

I had to start looking at blogging differently too, recently. I think it's important to have an online presence aside from our etsy shops, for those who want to know more about who we are, our what our cause is... and as much as I found blogging somewhat of a chore at times, I've learned that I really only have to blog as often as I want to, and if I stop trying to take it so seriously, and just be me, that things might flow a little more naturally.

but it's also okay to quit and walk away and regroup and try again, and get frustrated and learn and change and grow and then get frustrated again and then learn some more and grow some more.

glad to hear you are taking good care of you, you.

happy new year. ♥
