Continue with daily posts? Back off to a three or four a week? I have enjoyed being in the habit of writing, and feel like I have accomplished what I set out to do with daily posts. But life has been getting very busy. I have had more than one person ask me, "How do you have time to do your blog?" And the truth is, with the sewing and other writing that I want to do, I have decided that it is time to end my daily posts.
I am a little bit afraid that if I slow down, I'll stop altogether again, but fear is not a very good reason to keep going. Now that I have done daily posts for two months, I know that I can keep on track. At this point, I would like to have a little extra time to reflect on what I am writing. A post a day can end up being a frantic "What am I going to post today?!" and that is not what I intend for my blog. As I move forward, I do so with the intention of being more purposeful . . . more thoughtful of what I want to put out there.
I can tell you who will be glad that Mama is not going to do daily posts anymore . . .
Totally little girl hair, not toddler hair!
John and the kids have been very gracious and patient as I have had a busy couple of months with blogging, painting the bathroom and hallways, and sewing up a storm. Taking a few days a week off from blogging will make these kidlets very happy!
So here we go, moving into a new month. I will still be here, blogging away, it just won't be every day anymore. To celebrate new beginnings and the coming spring (Soon, I hope!), I have a March 1st giveaway to tell you about.
Two lucky readers are going to win a new toilettries/pencil bag! That's right, not just one, but two! All you have to do is become a follower of my blog or "like" Ad Libs on facebook. Want an extra entry? Share a link of your favorite post that I wrote over the last two months on facebook, and be sure to tag me so I know you get an extra entry. I will draw the winners at 7 p.m. tomorrow night (March 1st) . . . good luck!
