Taking a Break from Blog Design

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.

    My daughter had a business in ebay when our granddaughter was 5 years. For Christmas I let the little one paint a mug for her mommy. She drew a computer and asked for help on how to spell ebay because she thought that’s what her mommy loved…after all, mommy spent so much time there! My daughter was dumbfounded and things changed immediately….

    Good for you! I sometimes get caught up in blogging and posting reviews and giveaways and all that stuff and I have to stop & remind myself of what really matters – my children! They are such precious blessings! Thanks for the great reminder as I go into the weekend. Enjoy your time “off” with them! 🙂

    You will never regret this- children are so very precious and it’s great to see when parents have their priorities in order. 🙂
