Easing back in

ok..so obviously I havent been around much lately. The truth about it is I kind of decided that blog land was sucking the life out of me...not to mention all of my time as well. I decided to take a little break and re prioritize. I thought seriously about going private, but to be honest...I hate private blogs. Especially those of my friends, only because I can't get updates from google reader and then I forget their addresses and I only check them when I realize its been..like..forever! And then I have feelings of guilt. :) That being said, the thought of privacy was a nice one. I could write whatever I wanted and I could be as personal as I  needed to be. But then I felt bad for all those out there who read this and knew that if I went private you all would do the exact same thing I just mentioned. lame.

So I thought long and hard and decided that regardless of what happens, I would get back to the reason I first started this, to chronicle my family's life, my children's everyday experiences and my personal feelings about whats going on right now as well. I'm not going to worry any more about stats and how many people visited my site. Traffic and blog fame aren't on my mind any more. I just want to remember what my baby girl said today, or the funny joke The Boy came up with.

I still love you all and hope you stick around. I have been told that I have a way with words when I put my mind to it...so maybe there will be something that connects with you. Or, in the very least...it might be interesting to hear about my life. :)

So starting soon I will be back to updating regularly. yay!


  1. I totally get this. At one time or another I wanted to have a blog that lots of people looked at, BUT I wasn't writing/posting things that would interest many people, other than close family and friends...so I gave up on being famous. :) This blog is for me. Welcome back, I missed you!

  2. Isn't it amazing how little things like a blog, which really isn't such a bad thing, can totally throw your life off balance if you let it. I've totally been there. Way to go Ash for focusing on the things that really matter. Thanks for your example!!

  3. I've been through the same thing. I am excited to hear all about your sweet little family because blogging can definitely connect us :)
