“I must write it all out, at any cost. Writing is thinking. It is more than living, for it is being conscious of living.” (Anne Morrow Lindbergh)
I haven’t written a post in a while and I think I know the reason why (besides the obvious business of life taking over).
I have too much to write about. (who doesn’t, right?) It’s just that some people choose not to write about what’s in their heads. And then there’s the rest of us…if we don’t get those words out into writing we feel as if our brains might leak the words or even explode.
It’s really is as simple (and complicated) as that.
My head is so full of what I need or want to say that I can literally picture the words all falling through this funnel of what should be creativity and then getting clogged at the bottom of this imaginary funnel.
I’ve also been sort of down in the dumps. Actually, that’s putting things mildly. I’ve been deep down, body, soul, and mind E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-D. I can feel the tiredness in every cell of my being. I suppose its burn out. Who knows?
So, I was thinking….I would really like to change this blog a bit. I don’t always have the time to get my own photos edited and ready for posting on here. Sometimes, I’d just like to blog about an ordinary day and post some very unprofessional and spur of the moment shots. On the other hand, I would also like to just blog about something I need to get off my chest that I don’t particularly have my own pictures for.
I guess what I’m trying to say here is that I want to change this blog up a little. Oh, I still fully intend to write some meaningful posts with gorgeous pics added, but I also want to branch out in other directions. I would like to include the homeschooling, which means I will have to combine the Laying Up Treasures blog with this one. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do that and if it would even be feasible.
So, with all that being said, I will be changing the name of my blog soon. I haven’t come up with the name yet. I’ve read that the domain name is unchangeable even if you change your blog name itself. I’m not so sure how I feel about that. I’ll figure something out soon. Until then, I intend to write much more. This blog is going to become more like a journal. (I hope that doesn’t scare off my readers) And if it does, I’ll be fine because I write because I need and want to, not always to please any particular audience or person.
By the way, I greatly appreciate my readers and subscribers and would love to hear more from you…input your comments please! (:
