I have been at this blogging thing now for over 3 years.
Hard to believe really. I have learned so much in those 3 years. There have been ups and downs along the way….not to mention many obstacles that appeared along the way. I have tired different things through the years too….some worked some didn’t. Some things I did because I wanted to and some I did because I felt like that is what I was supposed to do. Like there is a craft blogger play book and I’m just running the plays.
Going through my husband’s deployment and now a move across country has made me look at some things differently. We are a military family and will often be going through huge life events, like being separated or moving every few years. My focus has shifted just a bit these last several months and I wanted to share where my mind was at.
I have decided to no longer have my Time to Shine link party every week. I never had too much attendance and it has just become too time consuming for me to be quite honest. I will very much miss going through all of your link ups every week, but it’ s just a sacrifice that I need to make. I will also probably not be posting to a real strict posting schedule.
I will still however be posting my creations, tutorials, thrifty finds, etc. I absolutely love creating and crafting. I also love sharing my ideas and tutorials. It gives me a lot of joy to be part of the creative community. I know that by taking a less typical roll as a craft blogger that I may loose some readers or not gain as many as I could otherwise. And it’s ok with me. We are living a different life than a lot of bloggers out there and some of the demands that I have to meet are also different. So I have decided to also make my blog different and work for me.
As I said, I will still very much be posting as often as I can with the latest that my mind has churned out. I am also still open to advertisers, guest posters, features, reviews, giveaways etc. so if you are interested in any of these things just let me know!!!
I hope that you will still stick around and enjoy my little slice of the blog world with me!
