For a while now I've been pondering a question...
to whom am I writing when I post to my blog?
It seems that mostly local friends and family are reading this blog and that is wonderful. But since I either talk to or visit with you all on a (some-what!) regular basis, it just seems redundant to put the time and energy into writing about what you may already well know about from visits and phone calls.
If we were living a great distance from the majority of friends and family, keeping a blog would be practical. But that is not the case for me.
And so, after a little over a year writing on Homegrown Life, I think I will call it quits.
I have so enjoyed keeping this blog as a creative outlet and a way to put into words some of the amazing and tender experiences our family has shared together.
But mostly I feel like the writing mainly benefited me, the mother of this amazing family. Perhaps a year ago, I needed an outlet for all of the thoughts running around my head; a place to speak and believe I was being heard.
My needs have changed and I feel like I have accomplished what I set out to do.
So I will leave this little bog behind and set out to focus my energy, attention and creativity on the hundreds of other little things in my life that could really use it!!
