It's been awhile since I've paid a visit to the blogosphere, due to a certain little guy who arrived in my life about two months ago. I've missed reading the blogs of others and creating my own blog posts. I know I'm stating the obvious here, but having a baby is life-changing! It's making me re-prioritize what I do with the precious little free time I now have. As hard as it is for me to accept sometimes, it's impossible to do all of the things I was doing before Sam was born.
This process of re-prioritizing and cutting some things out has forced me to consider giving up blogging. But I've missed it. It provides a good creative release, as well as an entertaining, interesting window into the lives, experiences, and opinions of people all around the country. I don't want to give it up! So I've decided to fit it in when I can and do mostly short and simple posts that won't take a lot of time to create and edit. I plan to check my friend's blogs regularly like I used to do, but probably about once a week instead of a couple of times. That seems pretty reasonable, right?
I also want to give my blog a new look, and that was decided for me anyway because the background I had before has magically disappeared. I think I'm going to come up with a new name too. Any cleverness I ever had has disappeared these days, so I don't know how good or original it will be, but I'll try. I'm looking forward to getting back into the bloggin' swing of things again! And if you're one of my blog friends, I've missed you and your blog! I'm back! I think! Almost!
