The other day, Jason's grandfather emailed me to ask if I'd retired this blog. I actually had to go and look to see when the last time I posted was... turns out, it was almost two months ago. 2 MONTHS?!?! Wow. It's been forever friends.
The truth? I don't want to retire this blog. I love this blog. A lot. I even took some time to go back and read past posts and I learned a bit from what I said. That's a powerful thing people. When you can have a hard day (or week or month) and something that you yourself wrote can actually put things into perspective, that's not something you can really ignore.
I'm not ready to give that up. I've been blogging here for 3 years. This post is #638. A lot of effort has gone into this blog, a lot of nights of writing, wondering if what I am saying is even making sense to you all (I bet some of it doesn't.) A lot of time designing, and redesigning, and redesigning again. It's been a hobby and a source of joy and it's even made me some new friends and opened doors for me in a good way.
All that being said, I need for it not to be a source of stress. Blogging for fun, a personal blog like this one, needs to be a source of inspiration and joy. And so, my plan for All Sam's Idea is this: I will keep posting when I can. I will not stress about what I post. I will know there is value in whatever content I can post, and hope that you all appreciate reading it. I will focus much more on the personal stuff, the fun things that we do, our adventures, and sharing them with you all. I will not take for granted what this blog has become, and how much I adore it. And I really hope not to go another two months without posting. Hopefully I can post some sort of update on our life every week or so.
