So, it’s been about a month since I’ve written. Things have been really busy with the kids and I’ve really been thinking a lot about where I want to take this blog. I’ve been trying to monetize and make some income off this little space of mine through Google ads, affiliate links, some sponsored posts, reviews, and giveaways. And it has been so much fun! I love offering giveaways and have loved the opportunities to try products and share them with you that I may not have otherwise been able to try.
But, here’s the thing. I started to feel overwhelmed with due dates, making sure to email people in the proper amount of time, waiting for giveaway winners to respond, etc., etc. And I wasn’t even doing as many of these types of posts as some of my blogging peers, but I feel like I got lost in the mix. I’m not saying you’ll never see a sponsored post, review, or giveaway from me again, but it will be sparingly. I do plan to keep up as a Stonyfield Blogger, because, well, it’s fun and I genuinely enjoy writing for them! But you will see far fewer reviews and giveaways. If you follow me because of those posts, I hope you continue to follow and read as I’m sure my posts may get back to what they use to be, which was a more personal style of writing.
My kids take up so much of my time, which is exactly how I want it! Since Baby H was born I’ve been doing the SAHM thing and have been loving it! I’m trying to balance the homemaking and the child-rearing, but it is so much easier to get all of that done while I’m not working. I will be returning to work soon though and this means that if I’m going to write, it’s going to be for me and on my time, which is limited and will be even more limited as I return to work.
I love writing, I love this blog. I started this blog almost 4 years ago and even though the name has changed since then, it’s still a place that I find cathartic. I enjoy writing out my thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I love reading your comments! So, from here on out, at least for awhile, what you’ll get from this blog is:
Personal Experience Posts
Stonyfield Blogger Posts
And I might not write everyday, or even every week! When the mood strikes and I have time, I’ll write. I hope you understand, my priorities are my kids and getting us back to a financially stable situation and to make that happen, I need to go back to work out of the home – unless y’all start shopping like crazy through my affiliate links – that aren’t even on the blog right now! Ha!
So, I’ll be seeing you! Hopefully, more frequently than recently, but no promises. 😉
