This is something that has been on my mind quite a bit lately, I’ve questioned what am I doing in the blogging/vlogging world is it time to shut down or keep on going? It’s been over a year that I made my entry into the vlogging world and overall I have received so much good from it all. I have made so many friends and contacts and I am extremely grateful for that.
The reality that I’m facing is that I don’t have the time to make videos as frequently as I used to. Managing a house of 5 with a baby means that perfect hair, makeup, lighting and time to edit do not align perfectly EVER. Which is why some of you who follow me closely have noticed that I revamped my blog and have started posting regularly again. I’ve done this for obvious reasons, blogging doesn’t require all of the above to make a perfect video. I can take a few great shots and swatches of products quickly in good daylight and save the writing and photo editing for later, perhaps at midnight when the kids are fast asleep. This is a whole different discussion of it’s own. I have no intention of leaving the blogging world as far as I know.
As well, lately I’ve been wondering here and there what happened to so and so? A while back I recall my friend Chicachew tweeting something saying that she was sad to see certain people stop making videos. Back then, I didn’t think anything of it, however, recently I noticed some people that I used to be in contact with via social media slowly drop off. I was a little sad myself wondering what happened to these people and took it upon myself to contact them directly asking what happened.
The internet and social media has a way of wonderfully connecting us all virtually. I find it amazing sometimes that I can feel a closeness with some of my blogging friends that I have yet to meet in person. We share a slice of our lives with each other, we laugh and we cry with each other. It’s a wonderful thing, however sometimes some people just do not have the desire or time to interact like that anymore. I am already starting to see people drop off here and there. I just wanted to say to all of my wonderful friends that I have met through my blogging journey, thank you so much for being a part of this with me. You will notice a slow down of the videos being put out, I just don’t have the time anymore. Let’s just say in this short time that I wrote this post I have already run about 15 times back and forth to the babies room trying to soothe him to sleep….lol…those that are mommies understand exactly what I am talking about. So if this post is poorly written or if any of my posts are, it’s usually because my mind is halfway there trying to multitask and crank out a post-this is the reality of my life.
