Hi friends. Thank you for your patience with me this past week. I was absent for a little longer than I planned. I’m just going to be honest with you all. I think there comes a point in every blogger’s life when she (or he) becomes a bit… bogged down. Overwhelmed. Uninspired. At least one, if not all of those feelings. I am in that place right now.
Don’t get me wrong, I love this blog. I love looking at beautiful things every day, and trying to help brides get inspired. I love all things wedding. I love listening to music and thinking about how it could be incorporated into the most important day of your life. I love writing. Most of all, I love connecting with you. The internet is sometimes described as a hard, cold place, where keyboards and mouses replace real human interaction. Not so, I tell you. Although I have plenty of real human interactions every day, and those should never be replaced by cyber relationships, I also love connecting with people via the internet. I love that I can get to know a stranger in another state or even country because we have a common interest. I love the community of bloggers that I have connected with through this blog, and the kindness and support they have offered me throughout this journey. I have never had to feel like I am talking to a void. Thank you for that.
Sorry if that felt a little goodbye-ish, because that’s not what it is at all. I’m just sharing with you guys where I am with things, because I like it when others are open and honest with me, so I try to do the same. I am working on a new vision for this blog. I want to set some goals and make plans and dream dreams. I don’t want to just become a machine, spitting out posts for the masses in hopes that the blog will grow into a big famous wedding blog. Don’t get me wrong, that would be awesome. But that’s not why I do this. I started writing this blog because I love music, and I love weddings, and I wanted to help brides. Simple as that. When it starts to feel tedious though, and I start to feel uninspired, is when I know I’ve somehow lost touch with the reason for all this, and the passion behind it. So I’m going to go back and find that. And in the meantime, I will still be posting. I hope that as I rediscover my passion, that you will notice it here on the blog, and be inspired. That’s what it all comes down to, really.
Look forward to a standard, wedding related post tomorrow. And in the days to come.
