My hosting is set to expire tomorrow, and I couldn’t decide what to do. It’s been clear through grad school and now through wedding planning that blogging has not been my top priority. I want it to be, I’d love it to be, but it’s simply not.
I got to thinking about why I blog, and if I wanted to continue blogging.
I love the connections I’ve made through blogging. I think about the people I’ve met, the friends I’ve made, the friends that will continue to be my friends whether I’m blogging or not. The ones I text, and talk with on Facebook – the ones I can’t imagine my life without.
I love the companies I’ve learned about through blogging. I love the opportunities this blog (and its predecessor Lindsay Weighs In) provided me. I’m so glad that I started this blog and had this experience. I’m so glad that years of my life are documented on this blog and I can look back on the good (and the bad.)
I feel like I’ve finally found my place, my niche if you will, in blogging… yet I can’t make myself sit down to get any posts out. I want to be excited about Sincerely, LMS – and on some level I am – but to be perfectly honest when I have free time the last thing I want to do is blog.
I know in my heart of hearts that this is not the season of my life to be blogging. It’s not serving me anymore and in my quest to declutter my life in 2016, I know that Sincerely, LMS is the piece that has to go.
It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later.
Will I be back at some point? Probably. I’m going to renew my hosting on a month to month basis, but I won’t be updating. I just don’t want to keep saying I’ll be here to talk about wedding planning, or about my goals, because honestly I just can’t get the posts up in a timely manner and I feel like I’m disappointing you all by saying I’m going to do something and then not doing it. Is this all in my head? Yes, probably.
You all have been here while I fell in love, found my dream job and really learned to love myself. I can’t thank you all enough for all of that. I at least owe you a wedding picture or two. 😉 I’ll be back someday. xoxo
