Hello There

waves peace

Remember me? I promise this is not a ‘sorry for not blogging‘ post; it’s more of an ‘I’m alive, in case you were wondering‘ post. To be honest, lately I haven’t had the energy to blog. For the past couple months, I’ve been working longer hours than before and by the time I get home, I’m mentally spent. Rather than put up something in a rush or try to force myself to be inspired, I’ve been taking a little rest.

Every time I go through one of these phases, I ask myself if I want to continue blogging. The answer for now is still yes- I miss blogging and just typing out this little update post feels so right. I’ve been thinking about the direction I’d like to move in, and I’ve also been thinking about giving this space a little makeover. I haven’t figured it all out yet, but for now I’ll keep blogging sporadically as the mood strikes me.

Thank you for still coming around to check this space. While I’m thinking about how to refresh my blog, I’d love to hear any post requests or general suggestions you might have for me. Thank you all and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    I don’t really have any specific post suggestions, but I am looking forward to seeing what refreshing ideas you come up with. I feel a mini-blog overhaul every once and a while is always a good way to refocus things – at least that’s been my experience.

  3. I am loving the new design Nnenna! And I know what you mean, sometimes you just need a break.

      Thank you so much Maru! I’ve been tinkering with it since last Sunday and I think it’s nearly done now. Yes, we all need breaks from time to time!

    I feel like lately I’ve just had no time for anything either. My posts go up in a rush and commenting has become sporadic. I miss having time for blogging and enjoying it rather than getting through it. Hope you find out how to make the blog work with your new schedule.

      I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who’s feeling this way. I think it will take time to get back to a better balance, but writing this post helped. It was nice to get those feelings off my chest. Thank you! I hope you find more time for blogging in your schedule too.

    No worries, girlfriend! I know what you mean. I’ve been really busy myself the last few months which is why I haven’t been doing as many posts on SHE. I think you should only blog when you can and want. Just keep doing what you’re doing, we all love your space over here :)

      Thank you Jenmarie! It had been weighing on me for a few weeks and I wanted to explain why my posts were going up less frequently. I’ve had a pretty productive week for the blog this week and it’s made me excited about blogging again. Thanks so much for your sweet words of encouragement :)
