Well...after much deliberation, talking and praying...
This is the LAST POST for Longhorn in Houston and for my blogging in general.
My decision came down to a few things:
- Is blogging time well spent?
- Can you blog without idolizing it?
- What do I REALLY care to write about? THINGS? People? Materialism? No.
The truth is...
I'm about to starting teaching a new grade level and it
kinda probably really scares me. I want to be a good steward of my time this fall and put forth my absolute best when planning, teaching and growing as an educator. I also know that much of our extended family uses my blog to keep up with our lives... Shame on me for allowing a website to update my family on my life. I need to be more diligent in keeping in touch with those I love via more personal means. I don't want my blog to be an idol...something that nags on me when I think "crap, I haven't written in a while...what can I write about?!" Or thinking about making my blog bigger or better...? It doesn't matter. None of it matters.
Will I want a blog when I have kids? PROBABLY. What an amazing way to keep track of their lives and milestones. Will I realize that I want to have oneSINGULARfocus for my blog one day (i.e. teaching) and ONLY blog about that? MAYBE. If that time comes, it'll be a very fresh start.
Until then...thank you for reading, caring, loving and following. You might see me again...but not as Longhorn in Houston.
