I made a post a few days ago… oh boy, it might have even been a week ago. Either way, it went something along the lines of, “I don’t care about this dang nabbing blogging because it provides nothing of essence to life as a whole.”
Then, a few days later, I did the EXACT opposite of someone that just doesn’t care anymore.
I made a new blog. I know. I know. I’ve been shaking my head at this one too. And I’m torn over some decisions this has left me with that I hadn’t considered soon enough.
Decisions such as; how do I maintain TWO blogs, when I hardly had the time to maintain one. Well, I think deep down I knew what would happen as I was creating the new one… and I went ahead and did it anyway.
I am torn because this blog holds so much history, even though it’s been less than a year. We’ve been through some stuff together, you and I. Laughter and tears and everything in between. My “plan” was to use my new blog for the exact purpose I intended; to motivate and inspire. This blog would slowly turn into the personal stuff that didn’t quite fit into the guidelines required of my other blog. Truth be told though, that plan isn’t going to work. I already know this.
You see, I still don’t fully write “planned” posts. You can kind of see why I don’t huh?! They never turned out as I originally planned anyway. And that’s okay. Pretty much, I start writing a post here and it belongs there, or there and it belongs here. Or a post that is missing pieces that lay in the contents of posts on the other blog.
What it boils down to… this blog is going to slowly go out of existence. That’s just the natural order of events that will end up transpiring. I will either pour my life blood into this blog or that one. Seeing as that one is the essence of any blogging goal I originally began with, it is only natural for me to want to pour my energy there.
I do NOT look forward to starting over. In fact, it’s quite daunting and has probably been why I have been quite active over here… attempting to postpone the difficulties that lay waiting for me on this new blog.
But, this procrastination technique of mine is NOT going to help me achieve my goals. I must pull up my sleeves and get to work, and probably considering adding in a “personal section” to my new blog because you know it’s going to get personal!
Regardless, what I’ve come to realize I will miss most about this blog is what has made it what it is in the first place. All of you. I look forward to your interaction. I love reading your posts on my reader. I love the sense of community I feel. I love my “regulars.” Though I plan (there I go making “plans” again) to grow this new blog much bigger than this one has made it, the only thing keeping me here, is you.
So, I extend my invitations to you, my fellow community that I’ve grown to love, to join me on my new adventures. Follow me on Life’s a Beach! I will be making it more user friendly asap, in the meantime, I look forward to moving on to my next level of blogging with you!!!
Let the adventures begin!!!
