I have been blogging at another address for about 6 1/2 years. I began blogging about my oldest daughter. I was older when I got married and when we started our family. It was a kind of big deal for me and for many of my friends & family members who wanted pictures and stories. Emailing everybody got tiresome as I would pretty much write the same thing.
Then I discovered blogging and it was ON like Donkey Kong, baby!
Although I have been blogging for many years, I have taken several blogging breaks for a variety of reasons. Writing is what drives me now, but family life – and two more children – have shifted my priorities.
Recently, our family of 5 + 1 kitten moved from a house I lived in for almost 10 years to a new-to-us house. The new place required a LOT of work before AND AFTER we moved in. It’s been a work in progress, even now that we have been here for almost a month. We had plumbing issues – which were certainly primary concerns – but also adjustment issues to schedules and new bedrooms and “where are my toys, Mom?”
I’m a shove-everything-against-the-wall-and-leave-a-wide-open-floor kind of person and that is how our first few weeks have been lived. But now we have to finish unpacking boxes – and get the empty boxes out of the house. We have to continue to cull our many collections and get rid of the excess – even in this newer, bigger place!
I find that moving my blog is kinda the same way. I am having a hard time letting go of the old. Of knowing when is JUST the right time. Of how to transition from the kind of mommy blogger I used to be, to the kind of blogger I have become. Rather than forcing it, I am going to adjust and slowly unpack what God is doing in my life and in my writing here, as I continue to sort and move the treasured memories and writings from my old blog.
Go ahead and get subscribed here. I will be writing more and more here, and less and less at the old place, but not too much at either one. You can subscribe to both if you’d like, so you can follow the move – or just get signed up here so you can get any new posts in your email or RSS reader!
