Hope you are off to having a lovely week. I conducted a bit of an experiment last week — I didn’t post here and it felt….well okay. I started this blog because I wanted to share my stuff — kitchen, sewing, gardening creations.
The blog was a fulfillment of my new years resolution to start a blog and I did it.
I’ve really enjoyed figgsandsuch and learned a lot about photography, WordPress, twitter, reaching out to other awesome bloggers in the community and I’ve loved hearing from readers.
Fundamentally at my core though, I like to keep things simple. The less clutter the better. In recent weeks the blog became more of a must do instead of a want to do.
I also wanted this blog to be about quality and not quantity. Lately its been about just getting pictures up and text written, some of the entries have been rushed and not very thoughtful.
I’ve spent a lot of time looking at other blogs and doing projects at night after work, but these activities have made things the opposite of simple — they mean less time for family, friends, keeping up with the NBA playoffs, even reading a book.
So while I’m real happy with figgsandsuch and the experiment has been great — I’m going to be posting less and think I will enjoy not have the pressure of having to post three times a week.
Let’s hear it for simplification and quality!
See you soon, faithful readers!
