It’s been nearly a year since my last post and I’m finally to a space where I feel like I need to get back into it. At first it was blogging to record my own memories of being pregnant, giving birth, and making it through those first early years of parenthood. Then I was blogging to capture my own successes in parenting – activities, parenting topics, and local wins for getting out with the kids. With the arrival of our third kid I did more of the same but wouldn’t stress if a week went by without logging in – three kids is no joke yo! But time would go by and I’d miss the writing. Miss capturing my little slice of life.
I had these ideas of monetizing my blog and seeing if I could turn it into a nice little side job. I did the conversion from Blogger to WordPress. But then there were so many edits to be done (and still to do) with the look and feel of my site that I felt like any time I had to login and work on things I should be working on clean up. I’d chip on things here or there but really it slid into a year long break from recording our daily adventures, challenges, and successes. The blog is still a mess and I have a laundry list of things I want to do to clean things up BUT I miss the writing.
Something big would happen and I’d feel like writing it down but wouldn’t do it because it had been so long since my last post. I’ve been keeping busy with getting the boys started in first grade, keeping Alice busy during the day while the boys are at school, volunteering a few hours a week at the school, volunteering three hours a week at Clothes for Kids, oh, and I’m President of our multiples club (SNOMOMS) this year. So, yeah, I’ve been a little busy.
Now that winter is around the corner I feel like things are rolling along smoothly enough that I can tackle this whole blog thing again. I’ve really enjoyed looking back at my posts from when the boys were three, and now that Alice is three I don’t want to miss capturing this time either.
So, welcome back! Hopefully my motivation today will continue for the next month and I can get some posts out while also working on the look and feel of the blog. Bear with me readers. It’ll be a bumpy ride but at least the wheels are turning again.
