Blogging Under Fire
I’ve been blogging for almost two and a half years, now and I have gone through about 14 different life changes during that time. It’s been really interesting to watch which events have spiked or stopped my blogging. I took about six months off when we were opening the school but when Kai was a baby, while, gee, that’s when the blog started up.
I knew that after Gavin arrived, I would be less likely to be reading as much as I was reading on bedrest. I’m totally ok with that but I do have a few things that I sort of need to get done like tour stops that I’d scheduled long ago, thinking I’d be in my last weeks of pregnancy.
I have been enjoying reading to my new little guy. I’ve also found several books in the Middle Grade or Young Adult categories, lately, like Wonderstruck and The Night Circus that are fun to read aloud to my older son. We, as reading buddies, have been particularly enjoying the pictures from Wonderstruck and the focus on the museum but also the dramatic and super constructs of The Night Circus‘ story.
Blogging and reading have been two things that have saved me in times of stress and have filled in my days when things are going peacefully. I don’t always have the time or energy to do either the way I do at other times but that’s just life, I suppose. It remains to be seen how my blogging will adapt to the new baby but I’m excited to find out.
