I have been neglecting this space lately and I'm not sure why.  I guess I could say that I've been busy, and that my time on the computer has been spent on school work (which is totally true), but honestly I just haven't been making it a priority lately.  I don't like feeling guilty that I haven't been blogging, but that's what always happens.  I constantly tell myself throughout the day "oh I should blog about that" - when Eliza does something new and/or "bloggable", or when I think about some topic that interests me and want the opinion from my fellow bloggy friends... and then I *don't* blog, and then I forget what it was I was going to write about, and then I feel guilty for not having written it down when I thought of it in the first place... and that was a run-on sentence.  Which is very much how I feel like my life has been lately - one big run-on sentence that isn't very organized or coherent!

So, yeah, that's all to say that I will be back.  :)

Blogging is a creative process and with that comes "uninspired" periods. But it should be fun, so if you don't want to blog, don't worry about it. Just because you don't blog for a long time doesn't mean you can't start back up later on.

I have a lot of posts that stay drafts because I read back over them and I'm so bored with them, I can't imagine anyone else would be interested in reading them. And then I was so overwhelmed by parenthood that I didn't write anything for the first six months of Oliver's life.

The point is, write when you're inspired or have time, be proud of what you have documented, and don't worry about contributing regularly.

Ella - I am feeling the same way ;) Probably why I am feeling like I need a change for my blog. If you don't have time for the header, just let me know! ;) I still love your blog, even the "uninspired" posts.
