Back To Blogging

Back at it again! Guys, this is my 4th blog. I remember reading waaaay back when, that your first blog is usually not the one you end up with, and that has obviously proven true for me. I started with a beauty blog, then moved to a pregnancy/baby blog when I was pregnant with my son, then I had a mom/lifestyle blog with my best friend, and now here I am!

After my last blog ended, I felt kind of lost. My blog ended (amicably of course!), I had just had my second baby and was exhausted, I was (and still am) closing in on 30 and I just felt kind of lost. I lost who I was. I forgot what I was passionate about. I forgot why I did what I did. I remember turning to my husband in bed and asking him, “What are my hobbies? What am I into?” because I had no idea.  These things change as you get older, and I found myself so poured into motherhood, that I became a little unfamiliar with me.

I’ve been back and forth on this whole blog thing for a while. First of all WHY do I want to blog in the first place? What kind of blog will I have? Can I keep up with it if I can barely manage a shower and laundry these days? I decided I was going to wait until I had my stuff together before I started anything, but anyone who’s ever said that knows that you NEVER ever get all your stuff together.

Here’s what I know. It’s important to be wise, but in the end, sometimes you just need to go for it and figure the rest out on the way. Even when you feel nervous and vulnerable. Even when things aren’t totally lined up.Even when you can’t imagine taking on something else. 
So, here we are, another blog. It’s about me. It’s about my family. Our home. Our beliefs. Our adventures. It’s about things I like, that I think you guys might like too! It’s about blogging and learning and challenging myself. It’s for me. And that feels really good. It won’t be perfectly consistent. I probably don’t have a narrow enough “niche”. I probably still misuse commas and have a million run on sentences but, for the first time in a long time, that’s totally okay with me!

    You’re adorable! And I can totally relate – I felt like I didn’t have a narrow enough “niche” and didn’t feel 100% ready to blog. I’ve renamed my blog and in a way, this feels like my second time around. It feels more natural, and it feels more authentic to me, so that’s obviously a great feeling! I am so happy we connected on Instagram and I can’t wait to follow along on your blogging journey! xx, Em // happilylindsey.com

    I’m about to start my first blog & this is totally inspiring! I’m feeling very unprepared and vulnerable, but like you I’ve decided if I wait until I feel “ready” then I’ll be waiting forever… in fact, I almost think it will be more exciting for my blog, myself, and my readers to see growth and change and journeys rather than a completely put together perfect life! Thanks for the inspiration and for putting yourself out there! I needed to read this today 🙂
