Revival of the Blog: Day 1

Nine years ago, when this blog was born, I hadn't enough time to write everything I wanted to say.

Today, I struggle to find the words to begin.

I wonder why this is? Is it because social media has robbed the ability to think beyond two-sentence stats? Am I no longer capable of writing without an amazing photo to springboard my thoughts? Am I stifled by the desire to speak what is on my heart, and yet wanting to limit it to short sound-bites that convey meaning without using much energy? Or does my tendency for capricious creativity (let's crochet! let's sew! let's play guitar! let's garden! let's paint!),just lend to the pile of so many unfinished projects?

Keep a blog? Did I do that?

It might be all those things. Or maybe it was just time to rest awhile; to be quiet in a world that clamors and rings. Yarn work, reading, painting are inward and quiet things that require thought, yet no conversation. But, the writing... I do miss it.

So, I'm gonna make myself a blog Re-Do. A Revival. A Rebound. (Oh,, how I've missed you.) I am going to follow in the typing of my dear friend Kim, at The Mother Load, and embark on a 30-day Blogging Challenge.

She set up a format, so perhaps I will to:

Sunday:  Thoughts on the Spiritual
Monday: Random thoughts from Kellie's brain (perhaps a 10-minute post)
Tuesday: Things I Love
Wednesday: Creative Work(s) in Progress
Thursday: Throwback from the Archives (aka: my favorite Posts from the Past)
Friday: Photo of the Week
Saturday: Home stuff: recipes, DIY, life in the studio/office, etc.

Whew! 30- days of La Vida recovery.

First post....Done!

Adore that you dusted off the blog! I've recently done the same, and it feels great to scratch that creative itch, too. Can't wait to see what your challenge brings!
