The last month has been a super weird and exciting time. Florida has kept me busy, happy and full of excitement as I embark on new adventures with friends and meeting tons of people from around the world. Whenever something life changing happens, like a move or a relocation, routines and habits change and I can’t say I haven’t fallen victim to this.
Ever since I began Pearls and Polkadots, it has been my life. I think about blogging, new ideas, plan collaborations and write in advance so that I have everything organized. It took moving to Florida to make me realize that sometimes you have to close the laptop, leave the blogging behind and go out and have FUN.
This is the first month that I have fallen really behind with Pearls and Polkadots. However, I have found it refreshing to think about sunshine, palm trees and new friends. Even better, when I do think of a blog post, and take my time writing it…I feel amazing.
I feel amazing because it is something that I truly worked hard on. Something that I channeled my creative juices into and really care about sharing with all of you.
With that said, I would never want my blogging to become a chore or a task. I love blogging – it has truly changed my life.
Before I moved to Florida, I limited my blog posts to three times per week. I have now taken the guidelines and rules away. I will post when I post, and that will be okay because it will be authentic and something I truly want to post about.
I encourage all of my blogging friends to do the same – post when you want to post. Don’t post for statistics. Don’t post for ratings. Post because it makes you feel amazing. Otherwise, you will be cuffed to your computer, and no one wants to live like that.
