Blissdom, Homeschooling, and More Blogs

April 4, 2013

I’m finding again that when a lot of things happen in a short amount of time I can’t write about it because figuring out where to start and how to not make it a 2,000 word post where my hands fall off half way through is impossible. But – then I always wish I’d written about it sooner and in more detail.

Blissdom was amazing this year. It was a lot more relaxed, which is how I thought of it last year as well but this time was even more so. Great on the pregnant girl. I was able to see, do, and be at {almost} everything I wanted and by Sunday morning didn’t feel regret for missing a little. At the same time I was able to go to long lunches, spend time with my girls I haven’t seen in a while, and hang out in the room without feeling the guilt or push of “YOU SHOULD BE DOING…”

I honestly felt like I got my money’s worth in both sessions and friends. I left feeling connected to the women I love, the community I love, the writing I love, and most important; I left knowing why I write. I have to say that there are many times during the months where I feel like this is pointless, no one cares, my blog is a mess, maybe this is just an addiction to the internet…

then I hit these conferences and realize it’s the exact opposite. I meet you and think, “This is a real person. Their story that changed me is real. Writing changes other people. What we do on here – it does matter.” I am constantly blown away by the depth of how much people care about who they read on here.

It’s also inspired me to start thinking (again) about a second blog. I have had this on my heart for a long time, but am feeling more and more led in that direction. I really want to blog more on homeschooling, education, our journey, and share what I know with other moms starting out. I write about it here but it feels out of place, and a lot of the more educational/informational articles would be. I’m praying and tentatively moving forward, but know that it probably will be on hold to go live until after this baby is here and we move.

And for those of you wondering how I would squeeze that in, these past couple of months I’ve taken a step back from a few of the blogs I was on, so at this time I’m able to really focus on other things. I mean, focus as much as being pregnant and tired and working and a mom will allow. 🙂

Other places I’ve written this week:

    It was so amazing to meet you at Blissdom – meeting the person behind the writing is always amazing, but even more so when their story really touches you {as your’s has me}. Much love.
