I'm back..maybe

Hello to any friends who might still be reading. Yes, I know I haven't posted since Easter. I am in a blog funk. I don't know the direction that I want my blog to go. I have so many ideas, but just not enough time to implement any of them. I have so many ideas swirling in my head. Do I want to be real and write about what is on my mind (there could be some REALLY long posts)? Do I want to write about my life's journey...I promise I could make you laugh and cry with everything that has happened to me along the way? Do I want to concentrate on my home and the decorating fun and challenges that I have faced trying to get our new home put together? Do I want to write about my love of cooking and share recipes? I read other blogs, and I feel so inadequate. I want my blog to be my place of joy, but right now it is not. It is just mocking me saying "You don't have enough time or energy to focus on me". There are so many things that I don't know how to do with my blog that I want to learn, but I just don't have the time to devote to learning. I feel sad when I realize that no one reads my blog anymore and no one comments if I do happen to post. The fact that you have readers and that they leave comments is what keeps you going. Blogging is kinda like a part time job, though, and I have just not had the time or energy to put into it. I am tired of my blog design...I want a more clean, streamlined look. I want a better camera that takes fabulous pictures that I can blow up big and they look like a professional photographer has taken them. I want to learn how to sew and post pictures of the fun things that I make. I want to rehab thrifty finds and post lots of before and after pictures. I want to sponsor some fabulous giveaways. I want to create a blog that has people looking forward to checking in every day to see what I have posted. I want to inspire people. If there is anyone reading, what would you like to read from me? I am going to try to implement some of these changes that I have been wanting to make to my blog. Stay tuned and hopefully I will get out of this funk and back into the groove.

It's nice to see you! You can do all of the above - any of those things you listed I would be happy to read. It would be an eclectic blog! (Kind of like mine - I just put on whatever I am thinking about.) Anyway - you are in my Google reader so if you post something I will see it!

You're in my google reader too so I see your updates.
I quit blogging for awhile too right now - I'm just not feelin it! I have to say it's kind of liberating to not feel guilty about posting!
Write whatever you want- I always love reading your posts!

We don't care what you write about, we just wanna know you're alive!! Write about your "kids", your hubby, your house, your craftiness, your yard, your job, your sweet sister . . . , etc. hehe

Write about anything....I have been wondering where you have been. And btw I think your blog is super cute and I think your photos are good...who needs a professional looking photo?!! :)

Girl, you rock. It doesn't matter what you put up there. I love all of your posts and I read all of them!! I'm just not a frequent commenter, but if it will make you blog more often, I will comment more often. :)
