Yes, I know YOU are there, I have been reading your blogs, LOL. It’s ME that’s been missing, and I have finally figured out why.
This looks really long, but I swear I will get to the point as quickly as possible.
I have really been giving myself a hard time about neglecting the blog – I can beat myself up like nobody’s business! I spent so much time designing it, then losing that design and then making a new one. I made new friendships and met so many awesome people.
I started this blog when I was in the process of decorating just about everything in my house. And then I ran out of things to paint. Then times got tough at work, money got tight, teenagers graduated, and I couldn’t think of a useful, or even happy thing to say.
I was semi-depressed in life, and deeply depressed in blog writing. I even contemplated deleting the blog because I was so embarrassed that I had let it go for so long. Then I got out of my slump, and realized that I needed to quit whining and get back to it.
Now, here’s the catch. I have also realized that I am a bit of an OCD personality, if that is a proper way to describe my trait of sticking to one thing for a while and then dropping it like a hot potato. It is my most annoying habit – especially for myself.
Which means - I have a list of people that have me on their blog rolls for general home crafting and painting posts. While I am still horribly interested in that topic, and reading your blogs about it, I have just pretty much run out of things to paint, and there have nothing cool to show, or talk about.
This thought brought me to the thought that I named this blog “Wacky Whimsy” and I lost that concept in trying to write things that would be interesting to an audience of crafty people, which ultimately led me to let the blog dry up. Now, I realize I was being silly. It’s a blog, not a National Magazine. I’m doing this for fun, and I’m going to get back to that.
So. Wacky. Whimsy. Kinda like me, things I’m interested in at the time (which, as we know may only last a week, haha) and just a way to keep in touch with you guys. I realize I will loose a lot of readers, since I might not touch on something they are interested in at the time, (like right now I’m all about nail polish!) but if you decide to hang in there, I’m sure my subject matter will change a lot.
It’s gonna be Wacky Whimsy – the blog of a 40 year old Texas girl with two teen agers, a Halloween obsession (That never seems to go away, OCD or not!) and a love of all things colorful, wacky and weird.
I’m learning I might not have to be perfect, and my blog doesn’t have to either. Thanks for hanging in there with me, I appreciate y’all heaps.
