I thought time went by fast before having a baby, but wow, things are in warp speed now. I am trying to figure out how I managed to blog nearly once a day when I was pregnant. I am pretty sure I was still busy then, and I know I wasn’t feeling all that great, but still, I blogged all about it! I loved it so much I thought it would be great to start a mommy blog.
You know what I don’t have time for now that I’m a mommy? Quiet moments in front of the computer required for blogging. My quiet moments are few and far between, usually coming after 7PM when K goes down to sleep and then usually the last thing I want to do is sequester myself in my office and get back on the computer.
So to be honest, instead of blogging in the evenings I am drinking wine and nibbling cheese while cooking dinner. Thinking back, I suppose I couldn’t drink wine and certainly did not feel like being on my bloated feet to cook dinner while pregnant, so I traded that for sitting and blogging. Probably also while nibbling cheese.
I am working on finding the magical balance to fit it all in. (Aren’t we all?) Until then I’ll be updating sporadically. I’m not giving up on my mommy blog vision…just taking it one blog at a time.
2020 UPDATE: I feel like every blog I run across has at least one “Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while,” post. Some blogs have several spaced months apart before they quietly just disappear. I am happy to say I kept it going. The blog has had its ups and downs, bursts of activity and quiet moments. But the great thing about the blog is that it is always there, even if you can’t get to it as often as you’d like. And not only did I keep blogging, but the blog has grown and changed with me. So if you are a tired mom reading this, don’t give up! You don’t have to do everything all at once or even all the time. Just make sure you find the time to do things you enjoy.
