Whew. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks around here. I’ve launched two websites and recapped my wedding in 5 posts. And those things were fun and exciting. But you know what? I’ve really missed just writing. Nothing exciting or overly important. Just sharing with you guys.
I have to admit that three months ago I thought Stripes and Polka Dots was toast. I got married and I found myself spending my days day dreaming about being a blogger that made money. I was going to start this spiffy art blog and people were going to read it and share it on Pinterest and I wouldn’t post about frivolous random things anymore. I would only post about things that pertained to my topic and my audience. My two year “blogiversary” rolled around and I had 10 followers. I was over this.
It’s funny how things go sometimes. I started reaching out to more bloggers before my fancy new blogs were finished. Which brought them here. I redesigned Stripes and Polka Dots and all of a sudden I couldn’t imagine quitting it. I got all sentimental and suddenly I didn’t care if I had to maintain 3 blogs at once, I was going to keep my life blog.
So thanks from bringing me back from the edge, guys. The last few months have been my favorites on the blog by far. I’ve enjoyed getting to know each of you through your blogs and your comments and I finally feel like I’m part of a community here instead of typing to myself. You guys rock!
