Finding My Mojo
Somewhere along the way last year I lost my writing mojo. It's not that I didn't have anything to write about, because I did. It's not that I didn't have the time, because I did. As a matter of fact, I probably had more time than I ever had since starting my blog. I just got involved with life and the blogging world slipped my mind day in and day out. I even stopped reading my favorite blogs. I slowly slipped out of the blogosphere in all ways until it was a blip on my radar.
It wouldn't disappear totally though. That blip glowed faintly, resting quietly until I came along and gave it the energy it needed to shine again. I needed to recharge and remember why I love the blogosphere and why I started my blog. I began to wonder how Mama Pea was doing at A Home Grown Journal and Leigh at Five Acres and A Dream. I missed Susan's wicked sense of humor at e-i-e-i-omg! and Carolyn's at Krazo Acres. I missed reading about homesteads in other parts of the country and learning about how they deal with situations that would not be a part of my everyday life, like several inches of snow and a shorter growing season. I missed being motivated and inspired. I missed writing about my experiences and hoping I could provide some grain of knowledge to someone somewhere out there, and if not knowledge, at least a good laugh at my expense.
Looking back I realize I have been blogging for almost five years, and I don't aim to stop yet. So, I hope some of you are still out there and are interested in reading. Because I'm interested in writing.
