Oh Right, I Have A Blog

Dear (oddly loyal) readers,

Here's the deal.

I can't really explain why I haven't written a post in a month.

True, it has been a bit of an uninspired month for me. True, I feel like I'm hitting a wall with this blog, and have been struggling to find time to fit it into my life up here. True, I'm now working one full time job and one part time job, helping relocate my sister, training for a triathalon (surprise!), and trying to maintain some semblance of a social life - all while trying to figure out what I want to do (next) with my life and organizing/decorating my apartment.

But it's also true that I've still continued to make stuff. I tore apart my coffee table a couple weeks ago, added new legs to the top, and spray painted it bright blue. The bottom half is now an adorable bench in my bedroom. I have new sewing projects, new decor, new organizational methods and tips, new hair tricks, and even some new recipes that I would love to share.

And yet I haven't posted.

And for some reason, I feel guilty. I feel like I'm letting my friends and (again, oddly loyal) readers down, and to an extent, letting myself down for not keeping up with this "commitment". I keep feeling like a real blogger wouldn't do this, a "successful" blogger wouldn't do this... Is that weird?

In any case, I'm not really sure what to do from here. Should I stop blogging? Should I re-commit myself (again) to this (lost?) cause? Would it really matter either way?

I blog because I like making stuff and showing people the stuff I've made. It's really that simple. And I think posts like this are somewhat self-important and selfish in a way, but really, I just hate the radio silence.

Thanks for indulging me,
