WINTRY FAMILY FUN

Bye-bye Blog...



Sometimes you realize that even though something brings you a measure of joy, it is bringing you more stress and worry.

Blogging has been a great adventure for me!
I have met so many wonderful people and had so many amazing opportunities!
It has also taken time away from more worthwhile causes.

I want my precious time to be spent dedicated to joy!
The joy of myself, my family, my friends and neighbors.
I want to create for the joy and not worry about taking the perfect picture,
how many pageviews it will receive, and how many parties I can link up to!

I don't want to stay up late finishing projects that are due on the blog.
I want to spend more time enjoying all the wonderful things and people in my life!

I don't want to spend time worrying about why people don't like my projects or pictures
on my blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.
I want to share for the joy of sharing the joy I feel in my life!

Thank you to all the people who have supported me in my blogging journey!
What an adventure it has been!

XOXO
Jaime

Sorry to see you leave, but I understand! Maybe you'll still post a little about your joyfilled life?!?!?!

Brooke said...

I don't know how you ever did it! It looks like so much work! I support the appreciation of the world venture.

You will be missed, but I totally understand how you feel! Blogging is quite stressful at times! Wish you all the best and happy times to you and your family!

Steph @ Crafting in the Rain said...

Once enjoyed your blog-enjoy your new focus! I totally know what you mean about obsessing more over the"reaction" to something you've made than actually making it. How to still see you around on IG :)

Maryann @ Domestically-Speaking said...

You will be missed Jamie, but I totally understand your reasoning. Wishing you all the best!

Lorraine said...

Oh, Jaime, sorry you won't be blogging any longer. I totally get your reasons and also feel the tug of time away from what is most important. Maybe you might post just when you feel like it and just for yourself. No thoughts about those other distractions. It is your blog so just do what pleases you.

Best wishes as you move forward :)
Kindly, Lorraine

Sky said...

Best of luck to you, Jaime! You will be missed, but I am always impressed when bloggers turn away from it, too. You are strong to move on- I hope the joy you are looking forward to finds you and then some! :)

Will miss you,Jamie, but understand your decision. I've only been on this blogging journey for 5 months and wonder about the same factors you listed. Wish you all the best.

Dear Jaime:
Thank you so much for the pleasure of being allowed to showcase my own work on your blog parties for the last year. Even though I will miss your inspiration, I totally understand and support your decision to take a break and walk away. I hope it is only a break, and that you'll be back again someday. Take good care, and God bless you and your family.
Sincerely,
Ann @ Suburban Prairie Homemaker

Hi Jaime,

So sorry to see you go.

Alisha @ Crafty Brooklyn Army Wife said...

Good for you!!! We recently got rid of our Blackberries and just have normal phones again...minus the big data plan cost.

I believe that you should blog what makes you happy and at your schedule if you so choose.

Do what makes you happy. We will miss you!!

So, I will leave you with these sentiments....
Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year :-D

Crystelle Boutique said...

Good for you for doing what is right for you!

Really?! :( You'll be missed, but you definitely need to do what is right for you and your family. Tell you what: If you ever feel like jumping back in, we'll all still be around for you. xo
