It’s no secret my blog took the back burner in 2015. I started the year with high hopes to post frequently and that frequency quickly dwindled and I dealt with some pretty massive changes in my life and how I spent the last year.
Now my blog has sat stagnant again for several months. But this is one time when I’m going to cut myself some slack, when I think about how I spent the last year.
How I Spent the Last Year
Drumroll… I spent most of 2015 pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl in the fall. I spent last year working aggressively on my business, knowing I would be taking several months off for maternity leave. In the midst of that I had to drop something and it ended up being my blog.
I took the time off and the New Year arrived and once more I have found myself missing blogging. I think the days of blogging five to six times per week (circa 2011) are long gone for me but I don’t think blogging is completely out of the picture.
I’m setting a modest goal to blog once a week in 2016. The topics on my blog will not change. I have no desire to be a mommy blogger and intend to keep my daughter’s life personal and private from the public.
Since My Baby
Being a mom is challenging and I’m still adjusting on a daily basis. In the midst of that adjusting I already miss the “me time” I used to have. I am getting there slowly, so doing things like gardening and crafting and DIY projects are still important to me.
Exercising and eating healthy are also important. I want to be a good role model for my daughter and in order to do so I really do need to take care of myself, stay balanced and carve out a little “me time” even if that time is not as abundant as it once was.
This blog is part of my “me time.” I look forward to continuing to share and interact with you in 2016!
The Last Year
P.S. If anyone is wondering, Lulu has been doing well with baby. Friends not foes!
How was your year?
