Alright I'm just going to get right to the point:
I've been kind of hating this blog.
At first I set out to blog to chronical my kiddos.
This blog then provided me with basically a resume that a major newspaper picked me up and I wrote for them.
Still loved it.
I even went on to several magazines who saw my tone and insight as something unique and special.
Then Cal was diagnosed with Autism and while my first purpose remained I got so much feedback when I blogged about my feelings and emotions about everything that I felt really inspired. I wanted to share with other moms and to be help along the way in their journeys with autism.
Along the way though I got the idea to blog for money. So I got off of blogger. I had this pafe designed. I started to look cool.
And that's when I started to love it all a bit less. I convinced myself that it was just because it was a different platform and because it was all so new.
I researched everything and started blogging what I thought y'all would want to read rather than what I wanted to write about.
And so that made me like it less.
I got into some business agreements. I had a commitment. And with commitment comes a promise to write even when I can't find the words.
And that's when I started to like all of this a lot less.
And so I've kind of stepped away from it all. I've been thinking if I wanted to write at all or if I just wanted to scrap it.
But what I come back to time and time again is that I love writing about our life here for family and friends to read who live a ways away.
And I like to write about homeschooling. It seems like when I do that and I am showing you what we are doing that it helps to keep me accountable and to keep homeschooling cool for the kids so I can help all of you with your homeschool journeys. I like to share. I'm a sharer.
So in taking a break I've decided that this blog will be more homeschool oriented. That may be a bleh or a yeah for you depending on who you are. I'm still planning on sharing cool stuff to do with your kids and about our lives.
But I wanted to be open about this all. I am changing the game, I am going back to my roots and I am blogging about what is keeping ME Super Busy at Home.
I hope you'll stick around for the journey. It's all so much fun.
Love to you all!
