the absence.

I realize that I haven't been blogging very much for the past few months, and I think I'm going to try to get back into it. A few nights ago, Spencer and I were discussing some possible reasons of why I've stopped blogging... here's the synopsis:

Content - Sure, we bought a house recently (which is really cool and I need to post more about) and have been trying out Square Foot Gardening and composting for the first time (these things are supposed to sound potentially interesting) but it's also been winter and I don't feel like I've done anything exciting since the first three snowfalls.

Time - The majority of the time I spend on the computer these days is usually in some effort to keep my business rolling. And before that, it was all about finding us a crazy amazing place to live.

Bitterness - I realized that lots of people out there were making lots of money blogging about the everyday... This made me a) not want to read their blogs anymore (even though I was already hooked like a good reality tv show) b) not want to blog since I'm not making any money from it myself. Silly, but kind of true.

Relevance - I think that one of the reasons I began blogging in the first place (other than documenting my life, and my love of writing and photographing) was to have relevance to some external audience. Since getting married, I have a captive audience to report my daily randomosities to; the blog has become a bit less useful in this capacity.

Mainstreamness - When I started my blog way back in the day, blogs (or at least personal ones) weren't so... normal. I don't know, I just tend to have a hard time with certain things that everyone does/reads/listens to (still haven't read the da vinci code or twilight series) and now it seems like just about everyone has a blog.

Despite all of that, I am hoping to make my little corner of the online world all shiny and new again. Until then, check this out - one of the funniest things I've read in a long time.
