Rants and Ravings
Totally not about sewing or crafting. Just feeling overwhelmed with life. I am dumping facebook. I want to have more time to do the things I used to do before the facebook devil took over. Like blogging. Or just writing in general, I miss writing. I miss that piece of me. So do I keep up with the sewing/crafting or do I go back to what I used to do, what I truly know and that is sharing my life? These are the questions I am pondering this morning. I have not moved along with all the blogging sophistication. I feel like an old school girl in a technologically advanced world. I don't really want to split into another blog, that's what got me in trouble in the first place. I used to have my homemakers blog and I loved it, I wrote about whatever, then I tried to split my blog up into homemaking and my personal rants and ravings. It just led me to not doing anything at all. That and being threatened with my own words, as in I was complaining about my daughters ex boyfriend as they were going through a custody dispute and his mother threatened to use my blog against my daughter. Never having been through "the system" I didn't understand that the judge would not give a rat's behind about my blog. But it did a number on me. It made me scared to put my thoughts and feelings on paper (or online as it were). That was 7 years ago. I have done a lot of growing in that time. I have been through a lot in that time. I'm not who I used to be. So I think I will keep up with my crafting/sewing blog and maybe put a dash of personal in there from time to time. Writing keeps me sane, it keeps my thoughts organized and Lord knows, I've got a lot in my head to organize! So, I think I will organize a time line or all that's happened in the past several years since I was seriously blogging and then I can start anew with the projects I am working on from here forward!
