Blogging about Blogging...


Sorry guys....I stink....I'm the worst.  It's been too long since I've made a post.  I'm going to try and formulate a "posting schedule", you know, this day of the week, I post a craft project, then this day has an update on whatever big building project I've got going on....then another day for random personal thoughts (like today...ha!), and then another day for miscellaneous posts that I think might be interesting.  This whole blog's a tricky business, for real!  You have to be ahead of yourself, I have found.  So far, everything that I have blogged about (save for a couple of things that I had already "done" before I started blogging, ie, the diy stencil I did a few years ago) has been on the fly.  I do a project....and work my little fanny off on it.... photograph it while doing it, go strait to my computer (because I'm so psyched about it, I can't wait), edit the pictures and then immediately post to the blog.  The problem with that comes when I do a project that takes some tiiiiime.  I haven't posted all week, because I have been working on making the quilt that I mentioned has been a time consuming project....and I'm getting there.  I'm hoping to be done with that soon.  I need to get ahead of myself.  Do some projects this week, to be posted next week.  I like to be doing things in real time though.....I don't know.  Like I said, it's a tricky business.  I want to keep up the posting regularly, so that I can build an audience and nurture this little blog baby I have here.  I'm really loving having this blog and all of the wonderful comments and the associations I've made within this awesome community of bloggers.  It's overwhelming and amazing how many people there are out there, with sooooo many incredible ideas and all who are willing to share and build each other up.  It's a lot of fun, but a lot of work!  Having this blog is teaching me so many things.  It has gotten me to move WAY faster in getting things done around here....which is awesome!  It has been forcing me to be more organized with my time.....I'm about to get even more organized with my time, once I make a blog schedule.  I will let you guys know what that is going to be once I have it all set in stone.....and have some projects done to get it started ;).  I'm a fly by the seat of my pants this is seriously good for me.  For now, I'm super duper thrilled to be doing this :)  and I'll be back very soon with a post about the quilt I've been working on!  I'm sooo excited to see it finished.  It's going to be so gorgeous!  eek!   Forgive my over-enthusiasm.  I'm still doing this Isagenix stuff....and boy does it give me a lot of energy....that and I totally have to brag for a second.  I have started running a few weeks ago....and I ran today for two strait miles without stopping to walk!!!!!!   I know that may not be a lot to some people....but it's HUGE for me!!!!  I have done as long as 4 miles before, but I've always had to stop and walk a little bit here and there.  Before recently, the longest I had ever run without stopping was one mile....and that was in high school.  Anyways.... Anybody else struggle with being organized on the blog?  I'm sure I'm not alone on this one! You guys have a great day!  I'm off to work on my quilt!


Since I didn't have any photos on this post....I thought I'd share this cute picture we got from the hibachi restaurant we went to for my son's 8th birthday this weekend.  I was telling my 11 year old to make sure and behave for the photo, so we could get a good family picture....little did I know that EVERYONE was doing bunny ears.  This picture just cracks me up.  It is so "us".  Boy do I LOVE those five people!


  1. Hi Anna!

    I am going through exactly the same thing right now! I am one of the most disorganized people on the planet! Some days it can be a struggle to keep up, and I find myself spinning in circles. Looks like you have lots to keep you busy, too. Love your family photo!

    Tonia at The Sunny Patch has a series called Become an Organized Blogger. I found her through a link party at Krafty Cards etc. Awesome tips!

    Keep on blogging Anna, and have a great day!
