I really liked this post alot~ I have felt the same way many times..I too love to scroll my blog list and visit other blogs~ It is a fun creative outlet for me but at times I feel unsure about my blog too~ ;) Rachel
Dearest Holly, as the first one of your followers (I believe at least, your sis was pretty sure the first;), well then almost first!;), finding you when I just started to blog myself, I strongly urge you to never ever consider deleting your blog, again.;) Who cares if you post once every 6 months, as long as you are still here.;) It is not in the way to anyone, on the contrary, a beuatiful place to visit - and ultimately it is the quality and not the quantity that counts. Always.As for yellow, to me the colour of the sunshine is always in. Warm and inviting. Beautifully fitting any kind of decor or a home.;)On another note my dear friend, thank you so much for your recent visit and such an endearing comment! Yes, life can change in a blink of an eye.;) And I am getting slowly adjusted to have an extended family. The kids are teenagers by now, except for one, a small preteen boy. But I enjoy being an occasional step mom and I think they enjoying having an extra caring woman in their life.Take care dear friend, until next time.;)xoxo
I am in the same boat as you with the blog thing. It seems like a lot of people around me have been feeling that way, too. I'm just happy I get to see you in real life. :) As for your room. I actually like the first picture with the light airy blue and the accent of red. That would be my vote.
Totally agreed with you on the whole blog thing. I've been neglecting it and when I feel like doing it, that's when I'll do it. Good for you. Loved how you expressed it. Keep your blog up as we may need to refer to it for past projects, etc. Wish I saw you in person more often!!!!
Lovely post Holls! You put your feelings so eloquently. I think as women we put too much pressure on ourselves as it is. A blog shouldn't be pressure if it's a hobby. So don't stress about it. Just enjoy it! (I'm with the reader who said they like the blue and red...me too.)xoxo
Holly....good for you at keeping your blog and not worring so much about it....I have seen so many posts like this lately.....about the red and yellow. I have the same colors in my home and with all the great new "lighter" color trends out there I too have been so tempted to change, but finally decided that I still love my red and have been lightening up some walls and keeping the red touches.....I love it too much to say goodbye......I think that I would miss my "warm" home....I found this by visiting some popular blogs who have gone "lighter" and thinking how pretty but "cold." in the end....we have to do what we love.....glad your still here...even if it is every few months.
I like the occasional pops of red on neutral decor. But there is something soul warming about yellow. I was looking through your blog when I came across the reference for your first pic -May 2006 Mary Engelbreit's Home companion. As for blogging, I find that I'm like that too. I've been absent all summer. Life was just full. Please don't delete your blog though, I just found it!
Oh how I love you! :) You inspire me!!!!! You know I also feel a little guilty for neglecting my blog as well!
I just found your blog so I'm glad you resisted the urge to delete! I understand the "pressure" feeling to get a new post up. Sometimes my husband has to force me to go to bed while I frantically try get something up on my blog to keep up the meager traffic I do have...but at the end of the day...a blog is for release. Of thoughts, dreams, tension and always creative juices. Thanks for the reminder :)
Maybe you should think about getting guest authors for when you haven't uploaded in a while?
I'm an avid blog reader who appreciates all the time and energy that you put into your blog. I do believe that blogging is like anything (Facebook, for example) where you can be on fire for it in the beginning and then it can become a chore. Forgive yourself- you don't owe anyone anything, including an explanation. I will say that I am grateful that seemingly abandoned blogs I have loved following (Our Suburban Cottage and It's The Little Things That Make a House a Home, to name two) are still up & available for reference instead of being deleted. Just because you might not feel like adding new blogs doesn't mean that your previous blogs don't still have value to someone craft/decoration-challenged like me. You come first, the rest of us can wait.
In Home decor there is no rules...Whatever makes you happy. The colors you want :)I have had a feeling for Shabby chic too lately. Although...i will never have a white couch until all the kids are out of the house...Sniff :)Loving your cute blog :)I am LDS too.XOIsabelle
You put your feelings so eloquently. I think as women we put too much pressure on ourselves as it is. A blog is noting but the arranging each stuffs or tools here, is great knowledge.rc helicopters
