Oh, hi little neglected space of mine. I didn’t mean to leave you for so long, it just kind of happened. Running a new business, two kids, and maintaining a household left very little time for this little space. When I jumped into opening my new business venture, I kind of knew this space would take a hit, and I kind of didn’t care. It’s not that I didn’t care about you, my readers, or didn’t care about my blog, I just needed to get away for a minute.
When I started my blog it was for personal reasons. I honestly had no intention of turning it into a business or making money from it. I didn’t even know you could do that with blogging. My very first collaboration was with my dear friend (who was then a stranger) Jayden with Happy Teeth Baby. It was for a teething clip that Mykenzi absolutely loved, and I absolutely loved that I got to share it with you all. I didn’t know my blog had that kind of power. I loved that my little personal space turned into sharing products that I loved and adored with you.
Then, well … I got a little too big for my britches. It’s not that I shared products I didn’t believe in, but I felt like I got collaboration happy. Which meant no post was personal raw feelings, or just a weekend recap of hanging with the fam. It was always look at this, you need this, you should buy this, and that’s not the path I intended for this little space of mine. I saw all the other bloggers doing it, but I failed to realize their blogging paths were different than mine. I have no hate for the blogs that are able to collaborate on every single post, those are women I look up to! Most of them have full time jobs and blog 5 days a week. Me? I’m a stay at home Mom struggling to get one post up a week. Hah!
During my break, I was able to re-evaluate where I wanted my blog to go and what I wanted to do with this space. This space is for personal thoughts on life, raw motherhood, and occasionally sharing that sweet little shop that I can’t dare keep to myself! I want you to know that I take pride in each and every collaboration I take, I don’t just take one to take one. It is well thought out and for products and things I truly love.
So, thank you for always bearing with me when I need to sort myself out. Thank you for reading along with my crazy life, and thank you for continuing to support me even though I’m not one of those big time bloggers that have all the super cool posts.
I promise to get on a schedule again, I have a lot of things to catch you up on, especially motherhood stuff. Don’t think when I’m not blogging that I’m off vacationing or something because y’all, I literally caught poop with my hands the other day. I can’t even make that stuff up. #momlifeisthebestlife right?
