It would appear I have taken an unintentional blogging hiatus which sadly lasted THREE months.
I am calling it a hiatus or break but it was really a bit of a blogging block. If I had been asked “What’s in your way?” I really did not have an answer. Not a really good one such as “work got in the way” or ” I was terribly ill”. I don’t have any really good answer.
I have been doing lots of projects and photographing them but I just didn’t blog about it.
I have a few inklings to the cause of my gap none of which should have caused a THREE month gap. Perhaps the combination of them all just made me hit a wall.
Here are a few samples:
- I have been really wanting to grow my blog. So why stop writing you ask? Good question. It was not meant to be so long. I just wanted to ponder on the direction I want to go in.
- I wanted to “spruce up” my web design. I actually spent a great deal of time on this aspect. But is was mostly in researching and in the end I have only made a few changes: header, background and fonts.
- My office is a disaster. My office is in a very large room in our lower level walkout. My desk faces a lovely patio door with a view of the ravine behind our house. That is all lovely but behind me is an
absolute messABYSS of projects waiting to happen. Everything from sewing to upholstery to painting. You name it and it is most likely somewhere in that jumble.
- Too many projects in the wings resulting in a lack of focus. My friends and family praise me for my talent and great organization skills but for some reason, between the state of my office and the number of projects, I just lost focus. Plus, I need to sell more of my painted and upcylced furniture pieces.
Okay so enough whining!!!
There is NOTHING IN MY WAY! Well nothing a little scheduling and organizing will not handle.
