Well…I’ve been thinking about not blogging anymore. It’s actually crossed my mind a lot in the last couple of years, but I’m considering it more seriously now. I really love it, and that’s my problem.
- I have a tendency to blog instead of doing other things I really should be doing. I’ve tried just blogging less often, which seems to help for a little bit, but then before I know it I’m back spending all kinds of time working on posts, taking pictures for posts, checking my stats, etc…
- Also, I know that there’s so many blogs out there on the exact same things I blog about.
- And to top it all off, I often find myself looking for my identity in my blog, instead of in Christ. It’s easy to only post about the successes, to crop out the bad, and then to hope with all my might I get good views and comments, as if that’s what life is all about.
So, at least for this time in my life, I won’t be blogging here at Purposely Frugal anymore. If you want to keep up, I’ll continue to post over at our ministry blog, and in fact a couple of you were asking about an update to what we’re doing now, and I just posted that.
Thank you to all of you readers who read my blog, commented and emailed! Many of you encouraged me, many of you gave me new ideas, and some of you I feel like have even become friends, even though we’ve never met in person.
