And the Verdict Is…

Hey people!! What’s poppin?

SO I took some time this past weekend to think about the blog, and my blogging habits.  Where should I begin?

1.  I LOVE the blogging world, my blogger friends, and everything in between!

2.  I’m not a huge fan of feeling forced sometimes to take pictures of my food every, single day

3.  I LOVE commenting on other people’s blog posts, and interacting that way

4.  I’m a huge fan of reading other people’s blogs

Basically what it comes down to…I just plain don’t have time in my life right now for consistent blogging!  My job is full-time, and while I may catch a free minute or two, or have time on my lunch break to blog, I can’t hook my camera (and therefore all my food pictures) up to my work computer, so I’m out of luck there.  AND usually, during the week, I eat a lot of the same foods while at work.  On the weekends, while I have more time, I want to spend the time I have off with family, friends, and my boyfriend, and sometimes blogging has begun to feel like a chore, and it’s not supposed to feel that way!!!! Don’t get me wrong, my passion lies in reading all of your blogs!! I love seeing what you’ve been up to, what you’ve been munching on, and commenting and keeping contact with everyone!  I just don’t have it in me right now to blog daily on my own eats.

With that all being said, I have made the decision to not continue blogging on a daily basis, however I will be blogging when I have time, special occasions, or a particularly good meal!  I am by no means dropping off the face of the blogging earth!  I will continue to post, just not regularly, and I will (and this part will most definitely be daily) be reading all of your blogs and commenting as usual!  That’s my favorite part!

I hope you all understand where I’m coming from, and know that I’m still here, reading and supporting you all!  You all have opened me up to a fantastic world of nutritious foods, exercise, and your lives and you all put a smile on my face! 😀

Mucho LOVE to you all!!!!!

    Blogging shouldn’t have to feel like a chore so just do it when you feel creative and have something to share!

    Do what you’ve got to do! Blogging should be a hobby not a chore or a job 🙂

    Do what you feel is best for you, Michelle! Blogging should be fun, and there are definitely a lot of higher priorities in your life than that! That said, your occasional blog posts will just become even sweeter!

    I completely understand. I couldn’t post my food every day either. I might take pictures I want to share and either forget or don’t have time to go through the process either. Please continue stopping by my place 🙂 I’d love to see you. Your blog will remain in my Google Reader so I know when you post again down the road. Oh and(!) I got my hair cut. Go see! 🙂
