Its taken me a month to write this post, trying to figure out just how to write it.
After a year of blogging, I’ve come to bloggy crossroad. In a year’s time I’ve evolved as a person, a mom, and a blogger. Funny how that happens so quickly.
I’ve learned so much over this past year. Made so many wonderful connections and had some fun opportunities. But one chapter of blogging is ending and another is about to begin.
After this week, I won’t be posting at Apron Strings Aflutter any longer.
Here are a few reasons why:
- Its Summer and my family needs me. My kids are out of school and we need to do a lot of swimming, relaxing and watching too much tv. We’re also taking a trip to California for vacation.
- We’re moving! Not to Madagascar or even another state. Just about 10 miles from where we currently live. And I’ve decided that it doesn’t matter if you’re moving next door or across the globe. Moving is a big pain in the keester. We’ll be moving into our new house sometime in the end of June and as I speak I am surrounded by boxes and important sounding documents.
- My design blog, the pixel boutique requires a lot of time and attention. I simply love creating blogs for other people and doing tutorials on blog related topics. I have started offering premade blog graphics, with premade Blogger templates coming very soon. Take a look at what I have so far in my premade design shoppe! I will also be doing some video tutorials on things like Adobe PhotoShop Elements and Illustrator.
- Last but not least, I’ve decided to pursue a new venture with my other passion, scrapbooking. This Fall I will be launching Confessions of a Cropaholic, a blog dedicated to all things scrapbooking, including product reviews, video tutorials and ideas. If you’re a scrapper (or want to be), please check it out! I will post a link here when Confessions of a Cropaholic goes live, but here’s a sneak peek:
So you see, I will still be around, just in a different way. I will still be on Twitter and will be leaving Apron Strings up for quite a while, so feel free to browse past posts and leave comments. And of course, please come say hi every once in a while at my other blogs.
Goodbye, 10s of readers. Its been my pleasure getting to know you and connecting throught this little old blog of mine. I hope to see you on the flipside!
