You don’t have to say it. I already know. I’m a terrible blogger. At least I have been for awhile now. I’m inconsistent, uninspired, and just plain preoccupied with a million other things. And right now, those million other things are taking priority and I’m honestly not sure if that’s going to change anytime soon.
Last April when I accepted a job as a virtual assistant, I knew my business and blog would no longer be my number one priority when it comes to work and income. But I still knew I wanted to try and keep things alive here. And then when November rolled around and Austin and I found out we were pregnant, I knew my whole world was about to change and priorities would have a whole new meaning. I just didn’t realize how quickly it would happen.
I let the blog go. Heck, I let my photography business go. Sure, I still LOVE taking pictures and doing photo shoots, but I haven’t put any effort into growing and expanding. And I’m guessing it’s likely because I’ve been busy growing a tiny human inside me.
It’s been a wild and beautiful ride since we found out we’re expecting our baby girl this Summer and for that reason, I can’t be sorry that this chapter just may be coming to an end.
Though I honestly believe that this isn’t quite the end. I think it’s just a start of a new beginning. Perhaps we’ll call it an evolution. Because life is about to get a whole lot more richer.
Here’s the thing, it’s not that I don’t want to blog. I just don’t feel inspired to blog about the things I usually blog about. Business, photography, marketing and that kind of thing. It’s still a part of me, but 99% of the time, this little girl inside me is what’s on my mind and I just want to scream it at the top of my lungs just how much I love her!
So my thinking is, maybe I should give lifestyle and family blogging a go.
It feels so weird to say that because I never imagined in a million years that I would want to blog about daily family life stuff, but sometimes as our lives change and we go through these major life chapters, what inspires us and sparks our passion shifts. And I think it’s best not to fight it and simply choose to love and accept the journey.
What do you all think? Have you ever noticed a shift in what drives you after going through a major life change? Whether you graduated college, moved across country, got married, or started a family. Maybe it inspired you to work harder at your already dream or maybe it made you want to dream a totally different dream. Either way, it’s okay.
Just love and accept the journey.
My next steps are to create a special place on the web for more personal posts. Somewhere I can share memories, thoughts and much more on this new beginning. So if you’re interested, stay tuned my friend.
