I have been thinking about my blog a lot today. I am going to try very hard to limit my time on my computer for a bit. Blake has an issue with my doing anything with the computer when he is awake unless it is letting him play with his games. I feel that the best thing for both my little guys is for me to focus my attention on them even if they are playing quietly or watching tv. I know I'd be better off cleaning and doing things around the house during those times.
No, I'm not giving up my blog. I'm not crazy! I'm not giving up my computer time all together I'm just going to limit it for a bit and see if that helps my little guy deal with some of his attention seeking issues.
So, back to talking about what my thoughts are for my blog. When I started I began writing about how I parent based on the way I taught kindergarten, and yes I'll get back into writing a few of these posts from time to time. I them sort of morphed into realizing that it was a great opportunity to journal our daily occurrences. I began writing what was on my mind, and what was going on in my head.... I was writing for myself. Then I began enjoying gaining readers and started joining up on blog carnivals trying to get more and more readers. But, I look at how some of this effected me and I realize that I need to get back to writing what I want when I want. I need to get back to blogging for me.
So for now, I'm going to continue to do Wordless Wednesday and then my set posts (Friday videos, weekend random thoughts, and Scrapbook / slide show Sunday). I am not going to set up random weekend thoughts as a blog carnival because I don't want to set it up and not be able to visit everyone who participates.
I will still read the blogs I follow, but I'm going to go through the list and make sure I'm following the people who I "get something from". If you don't see as many replies from me, that doesn't necessarily mean I'm not reading... it just means I'm limiting my time.
I hope you all understand and enjoy the changes in my blog. If there is something that I'm eliminating that you really enjoyed reading let me know and I'll consider adding it back at some point.
