So, this post is a close to my great new fun adventure on Those Bloomin’ Flowers. I know, I know…I just started. :)
This journey has been fun and I enjoyed seeing that I’m capable of starting this up and creating something from nothing but the experience has also opened my eyes to something better for me.
When I log onto Those Bloomin’ Flowers I have such a hard time writing, trying to appeal to a larger audience…which is what I thought I wanted to do. To try to be a ‘blogger’.
Then I flip over to Our Patch of Flowers and I easily write and share about my family, our experiences….our journey. It is just easy and comfortable. I thought I wanted to go to the next level with my blog experience and have discovered that I don’t.
I like my little Patch of Flowers blog, sharing about my family and I like that it has been shared, by word of mouth/email, and that it keeps my family in Indiana, Iowa, California, Arizona, Thailand, North Carolina, etc…just a tad bit closer. And I think that is where I want to stay.
The second thing I’ve realized is that I do need to enjoy a hobby, to get myself away from work and the kids sometimes, but it doesn’t need to be something that puts me in front of the computer monitor anymore than I am already there. I love social media and how it connects us to our family and friends….but I have discovered a few downfalls in how it affects me, and I want to stay clear of those detriments to me being the best I can be for Jason and my three Flowers.
So, here’s to a fun try at something new….but I think I’ll just stay at home. :)
