There are many wonderful (and not so wonderful - let's be honest) people out there, using blogs as springboards for sharing ideas, passions, recipes, and opinions. And while most bloggers would love to become the next Nester or get a book deal out of their endeavors, 95% of us will have to settle for a few blog comments here and there. It was really healthy perspective for me.
As you might recall, I wasn't sure whether I was going to keep Busy Nothings going in 2013. After spending a lot of time unplugged over the Christmas holiday (glorious!), I've decided to take a page out of Rachel's (very successful) Small Notebook and post only when I feel that I have something to share. I will not allow myself to be tied to a self-imposed, set schedule (5-days a week, or even M, W, F), which means that if I feel inspired multiple times a week, I'll write. And if I don't - well, I'm still here, just not blogging.
My dear hubby has recommended that, if nothing else, I continue to make my Thankfulness lists. Which means that even if it's quiet the other six days of the week, you're guaranteed three life lessons and a few items of gratitude each Friday.
So Busy Nothings continues, but as I continue to grow and change as a person, the blog also evolves. What worked three years ago, no longer feels comfortable - it's time for blogging growing pains. I appreciate those of you who have been around the whole time, and I hope that you will continue to hang out with me on the blog and Facebook page, as I continue to share my growth, my goals, and my Busy Nothings.
Happy New Year!!
