I thought that if I gave it some time, my blogging mojo might return. I thought maybe I was just suffering BlogHer backlash and I’d be able to push through it. I thought that maybe the reason I didn’t feel like blogging was because I’m pregnant and morning sickness is kicking my butt.
But two months later, I have come to realize that I don’t love blogging like I did when I first started. I dreaded the idea of writing a post. Or editing pictures for a new recipe tutorial. Or pitching a company for a review and giveaway. It wasn’t fun anymore. It started to feel like a job….and I already have a full-time one of those.
I thought about all of this for a while and have finally come to the decision to stop blogging. It was not a decision I came to lightly but I truly feel it is the right decision for me and my family.
There are just other things I want to do with my time right now. I’d like to sit down and read a whole book. And finally learn how to use my DSLR. And do a craft project without working about how to get the most “pinnable” picture of it.
Not to mention finish cooking Baby #2 and prepare to have a newborn in the house again.
I have so appreciated the community that has grown around this blog over the past two years. It is definitely the part of blogging that I will miss the most. Thank you for sticking around and supporting me.
So, goodbye….for now. Who knows what the future might bring? I may be back sometime down the road. But for now, I’m off to new adventures. Goodbye.
