Tried out the blogging thing...

Over the past few days, I've come to realize that I have a tough decision to make. Homeschool has started back up again; the Etsy shop is picking up; I start First Fridays once-a-month craft shows in less than two weeks; plus all the usual cooking and cleaning and teaching and whatnot. And more and more, my friends, it looks like this blog has to go.

This is not a decision I have made lightly. I have enjoyed blogging, and in some ways I think it has filled a void in my life. But it has taken more time than I realized, and it is also easy to become addicted to blogging and checking your stats and trying to come up with something clever to say all the time. So it is with both a heavy heart and a sigh of relief that I say goodbye.

Thank you for reading; as I have said before, your visits make my day all the time and I will miss that. The blog will be up for a few more days in case you need to make note of any links or information contained here. After that, it will be deleted.

Thanks again,

You will be missed in the blogging world! We'll have to keep in contact, my "blogging friend" and Sister in Christ! :-(

Oh, Kim, I so totally get why you're doing this. In fact, I've thougth often about doing the same thing myself, and I guess you could say that's ALMOST what I did when I only posted book reviews. Anyway, it was nice to get to "know" you via your blog, and I hope I can get over to see you during one of your Friday events!

Sad, sad, sad!
I'll miss this little window into your life. But we'll make up for it in other ways, I hope. You wouldn't be the wonderful, conscientious mother and wife you are if you didn't consider the time all this takes, so I do understand and don't blame you for letting it go. Even though I've known how brilliant you are for a really long time, I've always marveled at the quality of your posts here, when I know how much you already have on your plate. I'll genuinely miss reading your posts.

I'm so proud of you, Kim, and I love you so much.
