Have you noticed how inconsistently I've been blogging lately? I feel like I have 10 things to blog about one week, then nothing for two weeks. So annoying. But hey - when I'm inspired to write, I go with it. If I'm uninspired, I don't want to waste your time.
I'm not the type of blogger who brainstorms ideas and pre-plans what I'm going to write about and when I'll post it. I write when I come up with something that I want to share and if I happen to spit out three blog posts in one day, I just post-date them to publish throughout the week. For instance, this post is being written on a Monday and will post on a Friday. I like to spread the love throughout the week.
Recipes. Why don't I post recipes anymore?!?! Simple: I haven't been experimenting with new dishes lately. BUT, that is changing. I have tons of recipes clogging up my Pinterest account of things that I not only want to try, but I will try. Soon. And I will be reposting the delicious ones on my blog because I am seriously sick of linking back to other blogs only to find that the link is broken after a few months. So I'll be the cheesy blogger who changes 1/2 tsp salt to 1/4 tsp salt to "alter" the recipe enough to repost, but I will always link back to the website where the recipe originated.
POD. One complaint I keep hearing is that I don't keep my Picture of the Day blog updated anymore. I know, I know. Sorry, guys. First of all, I completely fell out of the habit of taking pictures every day. After three years of barely skipping a day, my camera doesn't come out very often anymore. Secondly, by the time I got on the bandwagon and signed up to do Becky Higgins' new Shutterfly book, I noticed that it only comes with like 30 pages, not enough to make 52 week-long layouts. I have to pay extra for the extra pages...so bummed! Plus, the space for journaling isn't as handy to copy and paste from my POD blog. (*sigh*) I don't have the time to be creative anymore, so it hasn't been on my priority list. When I update my POD blog, it tends to be a month at a time, which is how I might end up constructing my 2012 book at this point.
Homeschooling. Yes, I realize some of you are sick of hearing about our journey through homeschooling. This will not turn into a homeschooling blog, but it's always been a place where I write about our life and right now, homeschooling is a huge chunk of our daily life. When I had a new baby, I wrote about those struggles and victories. When we struggle with a parenting issue, I blog about it. When I began homeschooling, the same is true.
The good news is that most of my dear readers are moms of little ones. I will be posting about our many adventures with new craft ideas, easy homemade science experiments and kid-friendly kitchen creations that you can try with your own non-homeschooled kids throughout the long, hot summer. So you'll benefit if you hang around. :)
