Back in 2003, when I started this blog, my intention was to record the rhythm of our days. Lately, however, life has been beating along so quickly that I don't have the time to blog the mundane parts of our life like I did when I was a SAHM with 2 toddlers. (Am I completely mangling the musical references? I am SO not musical.)
I have been cleaning out my blog reader and realized a number of blogs I followed were no longer publishing. I also cleared out a number of single focus blogs. While their craft ideas or recipes may have been interesting, I never got the feel that I "knew" them so I won't miss them. I do, however, still think about some of the blogs I used to read in the early 2000's and wonder what has happened with their lives since they stopped blogging -- because they did open up their lives and I felt like I knew them.
A friend mentioned that she was considering narrowing the focus of her blog, and perhaps starting multiple blogs. I told her that I hope she keeps everything in one, because I like reading those "big picture" blogs so much more. Even realizing that those bloggers that share a good portion of their lives can never share all of their lives.
I do blog about life and my kids and what we're doing. But, it's only a small portion of who I am and while readers may have an idea of what's important to me, they don't really know me or what affects me. I'm grateful for the real-life friends I have who "get me" and while a few may read my blog they truly know I am so much more.
I have a few posts in draft that I hope to finish soon. But, first I need to get back to living this crazy, wonderful life of mine!
