Welcome to the Space Jam

Standard

Space-jam-disneyscreencaps.com-1419When I started out this journey on having a blog, I loved writing. I did guest posts on a regular basis on a variety of topics from parenting to business to life and I loved doing it. I figured, why not do what I love in a space that is all my own? A space where I can format and design and advertise and do whatever I want with? A space that make money off of instead of someone else?

These are all good thoughts. 

Until I realized that maybe, just maybe it isn’t for me. Loving to write and loving to own a blog are two totally different things. They don’t go hand in hand. Some people love both. Some people love neither. I am one of those people who simply love writing. I would write for hours and hours if I could. It clears all the jams out of my mind and lets the energy flow freely. It’s good for me. It’s therapeutic.

Owning a blog though? Writing when my blog needs me to? Promoting some of the inner most thoughts from my mind? That isn’t working out too well for me.

So now I have a space. And I have a jam. So welcome to the Space Jam! <Cue music>

I am not really sure what will come from this space. I doubt it will become some major income maker like the big names. I don’t plan on spending more time on my blog than I do my family. And I prefer to focus on writing where I get paid just for the writing part rather than the owning part too.

I guess it’s just not for me. And that’s okay. Who knows what will come next? There are still things I want to write. I want to finish the “30 Things About Me” posts. And I want to tell you cute stories about my kids and the lessons I learn from them because those lessons are important. I want to remember those things. I still want to write product reviews and share on social media. I just don’t want to do it all full time.

So that’s that. In due time, I might flip back over to my old [free] wordpress site. Maybe. I’m not sure yet. I’m learning to let go of the things that overwhelm me. so this is me, letting go.
