I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my crafting and my blogging and all that jazz. Isn’t it funny how we get into ruts/routines without even really realizing it?
I’ve been blogging for almost 5 years. When I first started blogging I made a goal to myself to get my blog known, to get myself known. I accomplished that. :)
I still really love blogging and leaving comments~~ seeing all the gorgeous creations in blogland, meeting all the new people, making friends.
But after thinking about it, I don’t like the pressure I put on myself to have a blog post every day. I don’t even know where that idea came from but it’s been in my mind for years…must have a blog post, must have a blog post. So silly I know.
As a result, I find that I “rush” through most of my creations and most of the time, I’m not totally thrilled with the results. I also am the Queen of Procrastination so when I do have something due for a challenge or design team I am usually doing it last minute and again, not totally thrilled with the end result.
Many friends work ahead on their projects, I always tease them and say they are overachievers and what not. Well, in reality, they are the smart ones. LOL!
So I decided to take a step to break my habits, my routines. I want to savor the creating process. I don’t want to rush. I don’t want to always be Little Miss Last Minute.
So, I’m trying the novel idea of getting ahead. And with that, it might mean that there isn’t a blog post every day~~ which I know really doesn’t matter to anyone but me but it truly is a HUGE thing for me.
But hopefully the end results will be ones that I am happier with and maybe it’ll help me grow as a crafter too as life isn’t fun if you don’t learn and grow in your passions, right?
Thanks for letting me get this off my chest, so to speak, and also to get it in writing so I follow through! Life is really to wonderful to rush through anyway!
As one of my dearest friends says~ Follow Your Heart in Art and Life…and that’s what I intend to do!
