Blogging Randomness

First of all, to clarify for anyone who read my post from yesterday, yes it was an April Fools joke. Not a single word of it was true. I basically tried to answer every question the opposite of what I would actually say. Also, another fun fact about yesterday's post is that it was my 200th post! It is so funny to think that my 100th post went live after I had been blogging for over a year and then it took me less than 6 months to go from 100 to 200 posts. This blog has done a lot of changing and growing over the year and a half it's been around.
I am very grateful for the community this blog has provided for me and the hobby it has become. I love reading other blogs everyday and answering comments. I love hearing of people back home who "never miss a post" and are blessed by my presence on the internet. I am grateful for technology and specifically the world wide web. As we talked about last night at bible study, today we can know exactly what is going on in someone's life on the other side of the world. Whereas traveling to the next city took several days for the prophets in Bible times. Which just made their prophesies that much more impressive. But I digress.

Sometimes I hit bloggers block. And sometimes I am simply not motivated to keep up with the blog for whatever reason. For example, I just spent a week in Georgia for work during which I did very little blogging. When I got home, I just wanted to spend time with the husband. {We watched 26 episodes of HIMYM on Saturday. I am only slightly ashamed of this}. Then Sunday night we went to our monthly book study for young married couples at our church. After this, I really wanted to spend more time working on my marriage and less on the blog.
We're reading His Needs Her Needs by Willard F. Harley for our marriage book study. I highly recommend it!
But it always seems that I get into this little "blogging rut," as I like to call it, at the end/beginning of a month. This is good because I typically have some planned posts that happen around this time every month that "make" me blog. At the beginning of every month, I write a "what I'm doing" post, like I did yesterday, in which I tell the world what I am currently making, cooking, thinking, feeling etc. I always enjoy filling this out and I enjoy even more going back and reading them from past months and seeing how my life and priorities have changed little by little.

Also, the first Monday of every month, I talk about my marriage goals {this month's will go live on the 7th}. This series is a link up and I am one of the rotating co-hosts which keeps me accountable because people are counting on me to host the linkup on my blog. This series is so important because my marriage is the most important thing in my life right now and this is a way to use my blog to strengthen something important to me in real life and encourage others as I do.
 Marriage & Relationship Goals
Anyway, I really don't know what the point of all this was except to maybe let you all know that I have been struggling lately with my priorities and that the blog may take a back seat every once in a while. I love you all and I still love blogging as much as ever. But sometimes it just gets to be a little much. I am not quitting and I am not even going to intentionally and noticeably back off. But I just needed to get these things off my chest. Thank you so much for sticking around and reading. You guys are the best!
