I’ve been thinking…
I’ve been thinking about a lot of things. One tends to do that while trapped in a very comfy chair with ice on the knees several times a week. Even with a crochet hook in hand (the baby blanket I’ve been working on for two months is STILL not finished, and Little Mister was born yesterday!), the mind wanders.
Today, it wandered over here, to my blog. I thought for a good fifteen seconds about whether or not I would post today. After all, today is the twelfth, and I didn’t bring my camera along today for a 12 of 12. I’ve missed several weeks of Random Tuesdays. I have obviously not been very inspired in recent months, outside of those meme prompts.
Those fifteen seconds of thought results in a, “Nah, I don’t feel like it,” response. Which is what got me thinking.
I haven’t felt like it much at all lately, have I? So where does that leave me/us/this blog?
I think I’ve decided that it means this particular blog is done. I don’t mean I’m done blogging – not at all. I just think In THIS Life has run its course. It started in a very different place (both geographically and in the matter of subject material) than where it’s ended up. More accurately, I began writing it when I was in a very different place. What it boils down to is this:
What I want to write doesn’t feel like it fits on this blog.
There, that wasn’t so difficult.
The solution? Well, that’s easy enough. A new blog. I’m not saying it will come tomorrow, or even next week, but it’s coming. This blog will not go away. For now, it will remain as is. I will likely stop posting on here eventually, but I won’t delete it.
This is a good thing. The weight of the blog is suddenly gone from my shoulders. When a thing you love becomes a weight, you must change it or change your approach to it.
