Wohoo, I'm halfway through my blog-a-day month!!! To celebrate I baked us all a cake. It's chocolatey, and smoodgy and dense and goes perfectly with a bite of strawberry to cut right through the richness. Can I cut you a big chunk, or will you have a slither? Cream or ice-cream?
While you're eating I'd like to thank you so much for coming along on this January blog-a-thon with me so far. I'm almost certain that if you weren't reading, commenting, face booking and liking my posts, that I probably would have run out of steam by now. But instead I am really enjoying it.
I'm loving the fact that I am carrying my big camera around with me again, that I am thinking about what the story might be during the day, that I am documenting this time in our lives, that I am prioritising something that I want to do everyday and making time for it even when it's a struggle, that I am writing words and sentences and paragraphs, and that I am doing something creative, something that I love, every single day.
When I decided to do this I had hoped that it would help me feel creatively fulfilled no matter what I was doing with the rest of my days, that it would make me feel balanced and like I was expressing a part of myself in amongst the chaos. I am happy to announce that all my hopes have been realised.
I guess my only concern is that it's too much and too often for you guys, but I think one of the best parts of a blog is that you can skip on past it if you don't feel like it.
So here's to the next fourteen posts in fourteen days.
Hopefully there'll be as much to write about and photograph. And hopefully by the time this month ends I'll be in a habit of posting often and will be able to maintain a much fuller blog life than in the past few years.
So tell me loveliest one, if you will; How often do you read my blog? Is every single day too often for you? Do you read my blog at the same time each day? Do you like it when I blog about some subjects more than others? What posts of mine do you skip on past? Do you wish that I'd post about some things more?
I guess all that's left to say is - see ya tomorrow!
(Truth - I baked this particular cake for our EOS - end of school celebration - but I would totally bake you one just like it if I could. xx)
