So. It’s almost been a year since I’ve blogged. That’s pretty much the worst. I will try to explain myself, but excuses are excuses are excuses and I still could have done better. If you’ve stuck with me, thanks and I’m sorry a million times over. Follow along and after I explain myself, I’ll let you know what I’m up to now.
Here we go.
1. We stopped doing stuff to the house.
This reason is pretty legit, if I do say so myself. After we finished the bathroom, we really just didn’t have the funds to do any sort of renos. Sure, we bought couches for the lower level (a recovering project for the future!) and a new entertainment system for the living room. And don’t even get me started on all the speakers that have been inserted into my life. Being married to an audiophile is a blessing and a curse.
So all that being said, I didn’t have anything to tell all of you out there. Not even any inspiration boards! I’m shaking my head at myself.
2. I had a crazy 2012 when it came to my career.
I started 2012 deeply unhappy in the job I was in. Sure, I was designing. But the office environment and politics were abysmal and I was constantly stressed and upset. Enter March when I said au revoir and started a new position with another start up. This job I really loved, but it was essentially blogging all day long. Which was great and I learned so much and made wonderful friends! But it left me no time or desire to blog even more. Couple that with reason one, and well, you get silence.
I have since left that position for a design position for the library and while I am so happy, I miss writing and thankfully I now have the time (and desire) to write again. Three jobs in one year? Told you it was a crazy year.
3. I didn’t know what I wanted to say.
I love reading other blogs, but when you’re just starting out as a blogger, it’s a little intimidating. They’re so great and you want to do this and this and this and say all the things! I’m not gonna lie, this scared me a little and I lost my voice.
Which brings me to what I’m doing now.
In the few years that I’ve (intermittently) kept this blog, I’ve been the only one who’s written, even though it clearly says “adventures of kt AND e.” Also, it started as our wedding website for goodness sakes! No one cares anymore about when we went to go try cake! In other words, I’ve outgrown this happy little home and think it’s time to move it on up.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to shut this site down completely, but I’m sad to say, I will no longer be writing here. Instead, you can find me writing about design and our house and books and music and everything else over at Nerdy Girl Writes. I’m soooo excited to get started! You can read a shortened version of this post here to really get the gist of what I’m really going to be up to.
I hope that you will join me in my new adventure and excuse my silence these last few months. I am truly sorry and I’m not going to let it happen again (the fact that I paid for this new site should help with that…).
See ya soon!
