Dear Blogger Friends,
Ok, I know I haven’t written anything in April so far, anyway, and I want to explain why. Well, at least try to…
Part of it is your fault – you as a collective whole. All you talented, amazing crafters & artisans out there that I rely on for inspiration and entertainment on a daily basis. I have become addicted to reading blogs. Bella Dia was my first craft blog and I slowly started traversing through new blogs everyday admiring the beautiful things people were making. I soon started my own and have never looked back. But – I have hit a wall. My Google Reader subscription list hit its highest number the other day at 243 blogs. Every morning when I wake up the first thing I do is check my updated blog list, most days the counter reads “100+” I can’t stop! I sit at the table with my laptop for hours and then wonder why I don’t have the time for sewing or stamping. Reading about all your creative ventures sometimes prevents me from creating my own things and writing on my own blog. I know moderation is the key but I don’t know how. I consider myself a loyal lurker to all my beloved blogs and do not know how to free myself. How do you all balance, home life, blogging, crafting and your own free time? Can someone, anyone, give me some insight?
