I am the type of person that if I’m going to do something, I want to do it right. I often find myself telling myself “you’re only cheating yourself” by not doing a final rep or giving it my all at the gym. So, me not making writing blog posts regularly a priority has not gone unnoticed. For a few months I have contemplated retiring from the blogosphere. But, I wanted to blog about the wedding. Then, I wanted to blog about the honeymoon. Then, I worried about losing all of my travel blog posts, which I write in part so that I’ll have a record of those memories beyond photographs.
When I discovered that I can make my blog posts into a book, that was really the deciding factor for me. I can publish a book with my photos and descriptions so I’ll have it forever. There are several companies that provide this service, so I haven’t decided which to go with yet. I WELCOME any suggestions or recommendations.
June 15 marks seven years that I’ve been doing the blogging thing, so that seems like the appropriate time to say goodbye. I just wanted to warn y’all in advance. I don’t like surprises, so I figure some of y’all don’t either. Plus, a deadline will make me really concentrate on composing blog posts for the next couple of weeks. Nothing like a deadline to get your butt in gear, riiiighhttt?
Blogging has been such a fun creative outlet for me, and I’ve loved the “relationships” that I’ve developed with fellow bloggers. It’s so fun to connect and feel like you “know” these people that you’ve met online. Sounds a little creepy when I type it out, but it doesn’t feel creepy. Anyway, I’ll still be around reading everyone’s blogs and keeping up…I just won’t have the pressure/guilt of writing my own.
Thanks to everyone that has ever stopped by and read along!
