It's Been Awhile

I know it has been awhile since I have posted. I was having a little pity party for myself, feeling like this was an epic fail, because I only have 6 followers. But, hey that's 6 followers right? I just know it's kinda a slap in the face when your family members don't even follow. (except you Carrie-thanks) But, ya know, this isn't about how many people read this, it's about getting things out. There are a few blogs that I follow, and it seems all they do is giveaways now. And I have to say, I personally want more than that. I would like to someday do some giveaways, or product reviews. But I by no means want this blog to be just about that. How do you get to "know" the person whose blog it is? You don't. And I want a more personal blog.

I guess maybe that is why the only 6 followers bothered me. I want a blog, where I can write a post, and people can respond, and we can start a conversation. Or I can ask a question and have it answered. I want to get to know people this way. I want to learn from one another. So, I can't do that if I give up. And I have wanted this blog for far too long to give up.  So I am going to keep on writing, and hopefully somehow will get some more followers. And start some good conversations, and make some good online friends. I know my life is not the most exciting. I am a stay at home mom of 2, but I know there are a lot of sahm bloggers! We have to have something to talk about!  And I want to try and not make this always about the kids. That is hard, being as they are my life! Finding time to myself, is very hard, and happens very seldom. In fact right now they are here with me. Being occupied by one of Shane's favorite cartoons Team Umizoomi.

So, all that said, I am not a quitter. And will be back : ) Shaneyism Sundays, Wordless Wednesdays, and lots more posts in between! I am going to try and post at least 2 posts a week, plus those 2. Maybe more if I can. : )

Thank you to my 6 followers!!!


  1. Oh, I posted a big comment an then things got all messed up an I lost it :(! Well to sum it up, I was not a follower but have read all your blogs lol! But now that I am not being stupid an seeing the follower thing, I will become one lol!

  2. Your sister told me to tell you she doesn't have a computer... As for moi, well I am a larker, not a follower. See my mama told me never to be a follower, be a leader... Okay, the truth is, I don't know how to be a "follower" of said blog... Looks to the right. D'oh! Okay I am a follower now...

  3. I am glad I am not the only one that didn't know the follower thing was over there lol!!

  4. bahaha, thanks krisi and aunt diva. and i know heather doesn't have a computer! and thanks bj too!

  5. If you want followers getting on the twitter train helps a ton! For the first like 6 months of my blog I had no one and there for never posted. But it was easy to find like minded people on twitter who enjoys reading!

    Also- the giveaway thing- that's why I switched it to its own blog. I wanted my writing space for me and the giveaway/reviews to be pretty much separated!
