Life, lately


I know that lately I haven't been posting as much. So I thought I'd give a little insight as to what's going on and some words of encouragement that I am in fact still, blogging, even if it's not every day.

Both my husband and I work full-time jobs in the hosting industry. This means that we basically run the internet, which of course is a 24/7 gig. We have to work special projects on our off-days sometimes, and every few weeks I am on call. We also work different shifts, and so by the time I get home I want to spend as much time with him as I can. This often means that working on my blog is lower on my priority list. Lower, but not forgotten.

For the longest time, I would stress myself out over writing blog posts. I would freak out about maintaining readerships and relationships. But overtime, I've calmed down. Looking around I realized that many of my other blogging friends also take breaks, and don't always post every day of the weeek. And it's ok for me to push this back. After all this blog is for me first and foremost. And even when I do come back, the counts bounce back up.

I am also getting more comfortable with taking my camera out everywhere I go. In fact, there have been dozens of times we're I've taken photos with the intention of blogging about them and not being able to.

This past weekend I snapped some shots of our Free Comic Book Day hull, and hopefully I can write a quick post about it this week. We got some good stuff!

Anyway, the point I am trying to make is this. I am blogging to the best of my abilities. And I am trying to keep up with you as best as I can as well. I love hearing from you all and I've formed some amazing friendships over the past few years between my blogs. If I seem to space out, don't worry! Hit me up on twitter, instagram, email or anywhere you know how to find me.

I may be busy from time to time, but I'll never stop blogging.

Here's to another busy Monday!

  1. You are awesome. There's not a thing in this post I don't agree with or understand (except I kind of stay away from Free Comic Book Day but I am in the minority and have my reasons :x). As much as I love your posts and general bloggy presence, life totally comes first! <3

    I have been run off my feet with work lately, so I'm STRUGGLING to keep up with my own blog and with blog reading. I have mad guilt about it, but at the same time, being so busy is helping me chill the ef out about it. You're right, you don't have to post every single day. Nor do you have to feel bad when you're living a real life, rather than your blog life.

    You're rad. We love you and we'll wait until you're good and ready to post. ;)

  3. my boyf is in sys admin so i know what you mean about it being a 24/7 gig. he also has weeks were he is on call and days when he works early/late. i don't have to deal with that but since i work for a company whose business is all online my work hours fluctuate based on orders.

    so i'm right there with you on wanting to actually spend time in the 'real world' and putting the blog on the back burner. the only time i came close to posting everyday was when i had two weeks off for christmas. i've just realized my blogging pace is 2-3 times a week without stressing myself out so that's what i do!

    i think it's great you are prioritizing what's important to you! blogging is great but sometimes we can forget to actually live because of it. also, quality is better than quantity, IMO.
