Last year, I spent a lot of time thinking about whether I wanted to keep blogging or shut this site down. Ultimately, I decided that it was an important creative outlet for me and I would really miss it if I stopped. Also? I love looking back at the archives. I love reading about what I was thinking four years ago when I wasn't even married and never thought I would live in Texas. If I shut down my blog, I don't know what I would replace that with, so continuing to blog it is.
But my blog - and what I am willing to share on it - is a lot different now then when I started. Plus my time is limited and thinking of creative topics to blog about weekly just does not pay the bills.
Melissa Jill has a great feature on her blog where she writes a post entitled "Frivolous Friday" where she recaps her week. She did it all last year, and ended up having a great archive of her entire year. I have seen other blogs attempt to do this, but it typically is kind of listy and not very interesting. Melissa does the weekly blog thing very well and I am going to try and attempt to something similar. I mean, its probably going to be pretty boring and a lot of weeks will be "sat on the couch watching television," but regardless, I am going to give it a try. Tune it tomorrow for the first installment.
