ugh! I opened up the blog and have tried more than twice…lost track… to edit the type and make it larger on my previous post. I wrote that post and had it scheduled to go up on Wednesday morning, because it was the last ICAD post and it was easier to do it that way. I like the scheduling feature.
I finally had to open up Live Writer and make my edits (enlarge the font) and repost it. What a head-ache.
This is just a small technical thing. Something I used to love dealing with when it came to my blog. There was a time when I would love sitting down to the computer and spending time dinking around in the back ground making the pages look better, putting up links or changing out photos; all because I loved babying my blog.
Its obvious that passion for blogging and the zeal and the fun that I’ve had doing those things, as well as writing posts, has waned. Gone are the days when I had time ( NO MADE TIME) to do all the little things it takes to run this blog.
I’ve been blogging here for over eight years. Its been hit and miss some times. There have been times I’ve taken leave of the blog to care for others, tend to life or just take a big fat time out.
There are many people I’ve met, who have come through this door into my life and have been a real blessing to me and my family. You have cheered me, encouraged me, befriended me in various aspects of my life. Many of you, I have grown to love as sisters and we remain in contact via email and phone calls—regardless of the blog posts—all of you mean so much to me. It’s a hard decision.
I have school coming up in a couple of weeks. Honestly, I’m not even registered for a class yet, You know how I procrastinate! Without going into all the details I’ll just say, I need my family and they need me. Keeping them close is important.
The time has come for me to make that final decision and leave blogging behind.
It’s not about content. Corn in my Coffee-Pot is ALL THE CONTENT. You know how openly I’ve shared whatever was perking. There has never been a time when I didn’t really have something to talk about here. If I didn’t have a DIY post to share, then I would talk about life, family, gardening, health, Frugal Fodder, drop-off Dogs or grand-children.
I’ve almost always blogged without obligation—but knowing that my blog is sitting here waiting for me to make a move, type something or reach out and add to the fodder that is the Web, nags at me. It doesn’t seem right to come and go with such irregularity.
I’ve made the decision to leave the blog up. I will tweak the sidebars and also adjust some pages/ tabs making it easier for my Pinterest traffic that comes for inquiries on the Faux wood Paper floor easier to find. Other than that, most of it will stay as is, so not to mess up links or create broken links.
As always, there is the question,”Will I return to blogging”? That’s always a possibility and I suppose it could happen, You know how indecisive I can be! However, it probably won’t be here at Corn in my Coffee-Pot.
Be Blessed, as you have all blessed me so very much in your faithfulness to read and kind words!
‘Til we meet again! (or you see me on Instagram)
