My blog has been sorely neglected over the past couple of years. I read a LOT of blogs, and a few months ago there were many people who had been blogging for a long time writing about the changes in blogs, and how it was affecting the way they wrote (or wanted to write). One of the biggest things that I took away from that, was from one blogger whose summation was basically, decide what you want your blog for, and be true to that. Don't try to emulate someone else, if it is not your style.
My goal for this blog, when I began, was to document the things going on in our family. Part of it is so that I have ways to remember the silly, funny, bizarre things that go on when you're dealing with kids everyday, and part of it is for family who don't live close to be able to see and hear about what we are up to.
One of my big hangups in posting is that I feel like there are events that I should have posted about that I have skipped, and so then I don't post about more recent things because in my head I want to get back and play catch up. So right now, I'm giving myself a "get out of jail free" card. I need a fresh start, and I will go back and do a little catching up, but for now my focus needs to be on what is happening in the present.
So if anyone out there is still reading ... hopefully there will be more for you to read very soon!
