So! A blog! I wonder if I remember how this works!
*blows an inch and a half of dust off the shelves*
Oh, friends, it has been ages, hasn’t it? I could make excuses for where I’ve been over the last two years, or ramble on about the changing face of blogging as it relates to the rise of Twitter and Instagram, or the demise of Google Reader (rest in peace). But regardless, I haven’t been here. I haven’t been writing, I haven’t been reading other people’s blogs. I just… stopped.
And that was okay. Life and priorities, they all change over time. What served me best at one point in my life might run its course and stop being what I need. That’s okay.
But just the other day, I had a pang of missing this space. I missed writing, I missed the process of trying to get my thoughts about life and parenting into actual words.
So, I’m giving this a try once again. I don’t know how often I’ll post, I don’t know if the habit will catch on again. I don’t know exactly what I’ll write about, but you can imagine most of it will be at least tangentially related to parenting, since that’s how I spend my days. (If you want to read about sewing, my quilt blog is attempting to come back to life as well.) The big kids are old enough that I’m going to be that much more selective in what I say about them, since they can read and have some amount of access to the internet, but I’m sure I’ll still have things to say.
I will probably be back tomorrow with a big Ellie update, though I hesitate to make any promises. But hey, I’m here. Nice to see you again.
