Wondering if anyone is there?
I took a bit of a hiatus from my blog. Not really planned but just done on a whim. I am sure you have read the conversation on many blogs for the past few weeks, how the world of blogging is taking a shift. I was feeling that in the fall...after blogging for 4 years. Yup...4 anniversary came and went, and I wasn't sure why I was still blogging. I originally started blogging after moving back to Canada, and living in a rental home, not being able to find work in my profession of teaching and just felt I needed a creative outlet. Blogging did just that. I learned so much that I didn't intend to, such as a bit of HTML coding, how to take better photos (please don't look at my earlier posts - I cringe!), how to improve my writing (you might not know, that I loathed English in high school - I hated writing....) and made such amazing friends! I became connected to people I never dreamed I would, met and befriended such incredibly talented people from all across the globe. Blogging has connected me to so much, it was the first time in my life I did what I loved and found me. I married young, had children young and was so caught up in that world, that I lost a bit of me. Blogging gave me the avenue to find myself. My blog was mine and my creation. It was a piece of me, that at first was hard to really show everyone who "me" really was but eventually as I become more confident, I let "me" loose.
But after 4 years, things change, life changes. I got a job, now working full time as a kindergarten teacher. Last year was grade 2. We are still renting. And still hoping to find "our" house so I don't feel like painting walls, etc. Which leads me to my angst, I feel I have nothing exciting to blog about. Sure I can take on sponsored posts - I am inundated with requests but then there isn't any authenticity. I feel like I am in a rut. But I am going to try to keep at this blog of mine. Not sure where it will take me and what "feel" it will take on. So pardon my absence. I do hope to be back on track, blogging and sharing whatever catches my eye.
