    I’ve had these same feelings/thoughts about my blog as well. It’s a funny thing since personal blogging is a self-imposed obligation but you put so much of yourself in to it you feel very committed and it’s hard to step back, and truly it’s something that I love but with everything else I just can’t also be a full time blogger. I just cut back to posting twice a week from three times and that is alleviating some stress and freeing up some time. I am very glad that I did blog here and there in the early weeks of parenting, I captured some things I might not have remembered otherwise and it’s really special to be able to glimpse what life was like as we were newly parents.

    I was also surprised at how much I enjoyed re-committing to blogging after having Dashiell. It was a creative outlet and a way to record thoughts and connect with people that fit into my life at the time (which did not include a lot of leaving the house or a lot of sleep 🙂 ) so you never know when a burst of energy for blogging might come.

    I love seeing your pregnancy updates and plans for preparing for your baby girl. And in general I love reading about crafts, recipes and also really appreciate hearing about other women’s experiences working outside the home.

    Happy Thursday!

    You’re an inspiration, Mere! Keep doing what you’re doing, because it inspires me each and every day to keep my blog going and to grow it, too. I figure, “if she can be pregnant, marrried, have a full-time job, AND still find time to write every day, then so can I!” Your blog will of course grow and change in this new stage of your life, but that is what is fun and exciting about it! Reading about your pregnancy journey has been so fun and makes me excited to be a parent as well! I can’t wait to see pictures of the little bean and hear about all the fun that comes along with it! Keep it up, lady. Can’t wait to see more!
