To Blog or Not To Blog...

Hello blog world, I'm back.

For the past week I have been thinking about blogging again. Let me tell you where I left off. A year ago I wanted to blog and didn't know where to start so I started the Project 365. Project 365 is where you take a picture every day of the year to document your year in pictures. It lasted about a month, it ended shortly before the month of January did. It started as a fun challenge but shortly became stressful. My mundane days consisted of driving 40 miles each way to work in chilly Colorado, working an 8 hour day, then coming home by dark. I discovered all my time was consumed with working and driving and by the time I had any free time it was dark. There were only so many things I could take pictures of inside so I decided why stress out over it?? And so the project along with the blog came crashing down.

I never thought to blog since, I never had much spare time. Now, a year later, a move later, and a third unemployment later, I have found some time on my hands. I've been thinking, why not blog? But why blog? I don't know anyone who I can follow and I'm not sure anyone will even follow me. I don't know how to blog or what to say but I also know there is no right or wrong way to do it. So why not take some of my spare time and fill it with something new.

A little about me...although I have found some time on my hands I can't say that life is much more interesting that it was a year ago. I may not have very much to blog about or very interesting things to say. I am in my late 20's, in a 4 year relationship, I am NOT engaged, I am NOT planning a wedding, I am NOT married, I am NOT pregnant. It seems like those things are the only things I see blogged about.  I have, however, moved from Colorado to California in the past year, am searching for a job (worth a post on its own) and am planning on moving yet again this year, back home to Michigan. I plan on filling my blog with things such as "more about me", food, fitness goals, pictures and some random daily life and interests. I hope to find interesting things to blog about and I hope to gain some followers! Stay tuned, and thanks for stopping by!

I'm so glad you decided to start blogging again! You are absolutely right...there is no right or wrong way to do it, people just like a peek into other people's lives! Love your blog name, by the way!!

Welcome (back) to the blogging world... I don't know about you but I'm addicted.

Also, I know MANY bloggers who are NOT engaged, NOT planning a wedding, NOT married, and are NOT pregnant... I def don't fall into any of those categories, and I find silly things to blog about all the time. :)

Glad you found my blog... and good luck growing yours. I'm following you now, looking forward to watching it grow :)
