When I logged into the blog today, I was somewhat surprised I was even doing it. I mean, I haven’t blogged in two years, so I’m not sure what the impetus was for TODAY. I had this looming sense of dread, and was surprised I even remembered my password. I found that there had been several comments left in the last couple years, my edition of wordpress was ages old, and there were literal cobwebs hanging in the corners.

The last couple years have held a lot of changes: my husband changed careers, we moved twice, I had a baby, I quit working outside of the house, and my new boss is not even talking in sentences.

I’ve thought about shutting down the blog and website; I’ve thought about this for a long time. During late-night feedings, naptime musings, the always-in-the-back-of-my-mind “I have a design business that I’m neglecting” thoughts. My solution to this was: I will ignore the blog! Yes, if I pretend like it’s not there, it’ll be fine and no one will care.

So when I first pulled up the blog today, I was cringing inside, thinking that a band of roaming hackers had probably turned it into something awful and I was pleasantly surprised that all was intact! I don’t think anyone follows this blog (or they don’t anymore) and so I’m pretty low on the priority list for hackers. (I hope.) But as I skimmed the posts and looked at the design…I was somewhat surprised at my reaction. Rather than having the feeling that shutting it down was the right thing to do, I had this strong affinity for it. I still really like the design of it, I liked writing…I kind of missed the whole thing. (Color me as shocked as anybody.)

I wasn’t expecting that reaction.


All that to say…I’m not dead, the blog’s not dead. Good things to come.
