Well, I've found myself in the midst another unintended blogging hiatus. I very much go back-and-forth on my vision for this little space of mine. Some days I want to throw in the towel because I am so far behind that I'll never catch up. Other days, I have grand plans for a complete redesign and more narrowly focused content areas. Maybe I'll be a lifestyle blogger, or a Disney blogger, or a home decorating blogger. I write these posts, delete them, change the topic and ultimately end up with a lot of "drafts" sitting in my box.
The thing is, nothing quite feels right. I'm just not comfortable marketing myself or my family. I love all things Disney and have no doubt that it will be a regular topic for content, but that's not all there is to me or my family. Same goes for home decor blogs. I read them daily, but there's so much more that I want to write about. Some days I want a big blog with lots of followers that brings in a little extra cash. But more days than not, I am uncommitted to posting because my daily responsibilities leave me spent by the end of the night.
But throwing in the towel? That's not quite right either. These kids are growing and changing like crazy and I already regret the years I've let slip by without documenting our sweet memories, family celebrations, and childhood milestones. So..I've come the realization that it's time to get back to the basics. For me, that's documenting my regular, ordinary, yet incredibly wonderful life. I'm my own audience...not readers I'll never meet, not coworkers, not family, not friends. Me, Morgan, a momma who realizes that time is moving too fast and I need to do everything I can to preserve these memories of these days...good, bad and ugly.
Sometimes that will mean a post about Disney or decorating and other days that will mean a recap of an adventure we shared as a family or a bittersweet milestone as our babies grow into young men and women, and other days it will mean a heartfelt post from a Momma who wants to hold on but knows that this journey is really about learning to let them fly. No matter what the daily content may be, it's time to get back to the basics, even if the only person who ever reads these words is me.
So...my goal is do a "baptism by fire" recap of our year by posting an update of pictures and major highlights by month. That's 10 posts right off the bat. Maybe once I have the big rocks down, I'll go back and write about the them in more detail...maybe not. The point being that once I am caught up, I will try my hardest to blog regularly..for me...because these years are going way too fast!
