I’ve thought long and hard about this and I have decided to stop hosting Saturday Project Life Blog Hop. At least for now.
I started back in January of this year in the hopes that I would meet some more Project Life bloggers and to offer encouragement and inspiration to fellow Project Lifers. And I think I’ve done that! I have “met” so many great people through this process – I think that has been my favorite part.
But at this time, the blog hop is just another “to-do” in my very long list of “to-dos”. Perhaps it is the time of year – I am super busy with my full-time job and my side photo business. And the kids are getting older and in more activities. Blah, blah, blah…we are all busy, I know and I truly hate the “busy” excuse.
Lately I feel like I am just throwing the blog hop together – it feels like a chore. And I don’t want it to be a chore. It does take me time to gather bloggers to feature, emails back and forth – I visit all your blogs (which I LOVE to do that!) But that all takes TIME. Time I just don’t feel like I have. This week I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to finish my own Project Life let alone feature 3 other PL’s on my blog. I was stressing out. And really, should I be stressing about Project Life or my blog hop?? Seems silly.
Something has to give, ya know?
Perhaps it was too ambitious of me to try to host it every week featuring 3-4 Project Lifers each week? I don’t know.
Anyway – I appreciate your support, your friendship, your inspiration. I know my approach/style to my Project Life has changed this past year and that was your influence on me! I hope that you continue to visit my little blog or at least pop in every once in a while to say “HI”. And perhaps I will bring the blog hop back, next year. Maybe a once a month blog hop? Throw your ideas at me and I will take it in consideration.
So again thank you all so much and I hope this is “see you later” instead of good-bye.
