I wanted to address some comments I've gotten over the last few months for a second... Well, really only two, and they may be from the same person, but that's neither here nor there. I've gotten two comments on my Formspring (one last summer, one just a few days ago), about how I don't post enough on my blog. The last person clarified that they intended their comment to be constructive criticism and meant no harm by it, because they do enjoy my blog. So please don't feel like I'm attacking anyone or calling that person out, I just thought it might be nice to address the issue to everyone. I respect everyone's opinion, including the anonymous commenters in my Formspring :)
I am fully aware that I don't post very frequently here. I *know* that there's usually a week (or more!) between posts. I understand completely that, for some people, it may be hard to keep up with or stay interested in my blog. The reasons behind the infrequency of my posts are: I work 50 hours a week. I try to maintain my house. I try to make lots of stuff for my Etsy shop. I spend time with my boyfriend in order to maintain a healthy relationship. Now, these may not seem like reason enough to not be able to squeak in a post here and there, but to me they're important enough. I'm sure I could find the time to post random stuff every day or every other day, but that kinda thing isn't my bag. I'd much rather post something meaningful or personal or heartfelt every so often instead of coming up with a mish-mash of unimportant stuff to talk about. To me, it's quality over quantity. I'm not saying that I'll never post an inspiration post, or a wishlist post, but I don't want to do that alllllll the time. And honestly, another huge reason I don't post often is because I simply don't do all that much. I don't get to go out and do fun stuff very often, and when I do, I'm more focused on enjoying my time than taking pictures for my blog. That might not be the "right way" to be a blogger, but it's my way.
When I think about who my favorite bloggers are, they're women who work from home, or are stay at home moms, or have fantastic jobs that afford them evenings and weekends off... I only have two days off a week and I usually spend those trying to catch up on all the stuff I've missed during the week. I wish beyond all wishes that I could have more time to do fun things that I could document for you to see, but my reality is that I just don't.
I really hope you understand why things may not be as fast paced around these parts. I'd love for you to stick around, but I understand if you don't. Thank you for your patience, and for all your love and support.
