I almost feel like Pinterest has taken the place of Blogdom. Don't get me wrong, I started down this "Sincerely Home" road a long time ago so that I could let my spread out family and friends keep up with us- it was never intended to be an awe-inspiring work of blog art! Some years blogging was easy.... the kids were growing and changing and inspiring me to take lots of pics and write about their shenanigans. Some years blogging was impossible....my home life was difficult. I was difficult. I was........sigh....uninspired. I just couldn't find the sweet spot.
Some years- I was so inspired I felt like Mrs Creative Domesticity was knockin and I was answering!
Do you ever go through a dry spell? It may be a parenting dry spell- when you're just on auto pilot hoping that there's creamer in the fridge for your coffee tomorrow. It may be a marriage dry spell- where you guys pass in the house but before you know it, you've climbed into bed and he's watching TV and you realize you haven't spoken to each other yet today. It may be a spiritual dry spell- where nothing seems to be going right and you feel so..well...alone. Or it just may be a creative dry spell- the laundry is done and the house is liveable (not clean...but liveable!) but the hobbies and crafts that you were once so passionate about have been forgotten because at the end of the day.....you're just spent.
That's where I've been. But I'm so glad to assure you that if you've been there too- don't think it's a permanent residence. It's a cycle. At least it always has been for me. And oh! Happy Day! I feel like I'm coming back around.
But now back to the whole Pinterest comment. I completely stopped looking at all of my favorite blogs because of Pinterest. While I find great IDEAS on Pinterest, I find great RELATIONSHIPS through blogging.
I wonder......what's your take? Pinterest vs Blogdom?
