So What’s Next?

I have no idea.

I am completely overwhelmed with the love and the support that I’ve received through emails, comments, tweets, and DMs. I mean y’all came out of the woodwork, lol. I really appreciate it. I have ideas for posts that I plan on writing, but my brain is trying to write them all at the same time, if that makes sense.

I want this blog to be like a community. I won’t go full blown forum or anything, but I want everyone to feel as if they are being heard. I love sharing interesting tidbits with people. And I love sharing a good laugh. I intend on replying to every comment – or at least attempting to. And I will be commenting more. I want to increase my presence in this virtual space. I feel like I can do that now I’ve let the cat out of the bag.

I feel like can better my relationships with people and even be there to lend a helping hand. I no longer feel the need to be distant. As the only child, I’ve never been selfish. I’ve always shared, but I have been pretty secretive in the last few years. I just wanted to be careful and I meant no harm if I wasn’t there giving up all of my secrets. I was just never as successful at something like I was with blogging. Ever. Throw in having a family that depended on that success, and you get an information hoarder. There are people out there who are in it to win it and will step on any toes to achieve their goals. I let that paranoia influence my actions. And I’m sorry.

I guess this is the part where we all hold hands and sing Kumbaya.

After I get my bearings, as my grandmother used to say, I shall return. ‘Til next time.

Random Parenting Tidbit: My little smoochie is such a ham. Look at all of those pearly whites! He can’t get any cuter, right?

Thanks for positng, I want to try these now on my daughter's hair. Your son is getting so big, how much does he weigh now?

@Alisa N., probably less than your lil pumkin. He's 23lbs.

I think you meant to comment on the Carol's Daughter post *teeheehee*.

Change can be hard, but it can also be liberating. I am so excited to read about your work and I know that the year ahead is going to be awesome!

But getting your bearings can take a while, so remember to nurture yourself in the meantime. :)

I'm doing quite a bit of nurturing and repairing. I'm so glad that you are here following me as a biz contact and a friend. It means a lot to me.

I love your new site, and it suits you so well. I meant to comment when you announced the switch, but just never made it over.

Can't wait to read your posts, and of course to see more sweet photos of Boogie.

Thanks so much for joining me over here. I really need to catch up on your posts. I love your blog and feel like such a deadbeat for not commenting and doing that interview.
