I keep forgetting I have a blog.

Or that I used to run a blogger’s retreat.

Or that some of my very best friends have been made through blogging.

To be quite honest, I don’t feel a need to continue Lindsay’s List.   I think I’d be ok if I never wrote again.  I’m enjoying the free time that I used to commit to coming up with good blog posts or reviewing products.  When I started out (how many ever years ago that was), blogging was a NEED.  Not just a want.  I NEEDED to write and to be heard.  This space gave me SO much:  confidence, an outlet, friends, a little corner of my own.  As the years have progressed and I’ve changed and evolved, I just don’t need it anymore.  Not in this season.  Bittersweet.

I’ve thought about shutting down operations and just pulling the plug but I’m not ready for a forever goodbye.  (I do know that my last post ever will be titled, “splendid.”  I’ve known that since I first began.)  For now and this season, I’d still like to pop in every month or so and dump some pictures (mostly for me to look back on) and possibly share some words.   Today = pictures.

    Love this post- yes – juggling a blog with family is a big one, and we always want to make sure our motivations are in the right place. Now, we have found freedom, by opening up to other contributors. Thank you Lord for guiding our steps and great topic to bring up!

    God Bless,

    Do your thing, lady! I’ve gone back and forth on this, but concluded that I like writing and LOVE having an archive of my life (for me … selfish, I know), so I’m continuing for me. I’ve made it clear to sponsors / vendors / random people that I don’t use the blog for cash or socialization anymore — it’s a thing I write in sometimes, but it’s not a job.

    I’ll keep reading as long as you keep writing (or dumping lol) but I get it. I love the pic of Porter eating ice cream in his carseat. That just seems to sum up summer & childhood so perfectly!
