Breaking (Back Into) Blogger

Hello friends! It's certainly been a while since I've whipped out the blogger interface and written anything. I'm not even sure who is still reading. (Echo-ing silence fills the auditorium!) There have been so many changes to the blogging world in the last year. I see trends going on that I'm not able to keep up with, I see new ways of posting and new awesome social media outlets. I see blogging friends that I've been fans of since I started blogging disappear, and new ones crop up. I've seen old friends re-name their blogs and have tremendous success. I've seen new ideas for ways to gain readers, I've seen amazing projects and stories. I want to be a part of this again. But there's one tiny problem.

I'm scared.

I want to break back into this world, it used to bring me so much joy. And I'm going to but it's like a brand new experience all over again. This last year for me has been a roller coaster. There have been some awesome moments, and a lot of not so awesome moments. All combined it's kept me away from this world that I've grown to love so much.

Where am I going with this post? I'm not too sure myself. For all intents and purposes, I'm feeling like coming back. I am a little more stable in my personal life and once again feel like CRAFTING! I haven't had the opportunity to do so in so long and I'm going NUTS!!! So today I decided to heck with unpacking I'm going to sit down and do some crafting. Just for me. It's nothing special, but I did want to share it with you all.

When you move for some reason your stuff tends to disappear. I'm not quite sure where it heads off to. Does it end up in the same place as all those lonely missing socks from the dryer? Does it take a vacation to the Caribbean and never come back? Do the neighbor kids that are helping you  move see something and decide to find it a new "home". I'm not so sure. All I know is that in the process of unpacking my kitchen after this last move, all of my dishcloths have up and vanished. So today I sat down with my crochet hook a ball of yarn and several episodes of "Bones" and made a few to put in the kitchen.

I loved this project because it's so simple that I can do it practically without thinking. It just takes an hour or so and viola, more dishcloths!

So here's the few that I've worked up,and I hope whoever is still reading emjoys this rambling post. Next time I think I'll post an update on where we're at and my new apartment that I get to decorate!

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you next time.

I just moved a couple of weeks ago also, and am still trying to find stuff too. I'm enjoying decorating my new house and there are so many things I want to make for it, but first I need to get some more unpacking done. Sigh.
As far as blogging, I just do whatever I feel like, as long as it makes me happy. LOL

I so understand this post. I have moved a few times in the past 7 years and have been on and off blogging for awhile as well.

Take your time. Even though a lot has changed, a lot is still the same.

Pretty dishcloths!
