Prior to Gage’s birth, I wasn’t certain if I was going to continue in my Blog Design business. I put my decision on hold, and continued to help clients as needed. I ended up taking on lots of new clients, helping former clients out, and I’ve started letting it consume me again.
My family comes first. Always. But, lately, I have been letting the pressure of completing blog designs, blog transfers, and other work get in the way of my family, and I cannot allow that to happen.
So, it’s time for me to put the blog design work on the back burner for now and focus on my kids. They are growing up way too fast, and I feel like I’m missing out on it by spending any “free” time I have sitting at the computer doing things for everyone else.
I want my kids to remember me as the mom that got on the floor and played with them, not the mom who was on the computer too much.
I hope you understand. And, who knows – maybe I’ll revisit my decision in the future and go back to designing. But, I’ll cross that bridge when the time is right.
And don’t worry – the blog isn’t going anywhere. By not doing so much design work, I’ll be able to devote *better* time to posting here.
