i'm doing it again.



They said it couldn't be done.

Well, technically, I said it wouldn't be done... ever again. Remember?

But then, I went into one of the biggest blogging slumps of my life [I know... dramatic]. Throughout December & January, I took a much more casual approach to blogging, popping in with informal, often photo-free updates. I was ok with how it was going, but I wasn't loving it, & I realized I wasn't taking much pride in it, either. 

But it continued. March & April came & went, & I still hadn't found a way out of my writing rut. And then May came along, too, & two things happened:

1. One of my all-time favorite content creators, Organized Jen, said she was going to go back to her roots in regard to vlogging. I noticed a near-palpable difference. Suddenly, everything I always loved about her channels was back. Suddenly, I fell in love with her content all over again.

2. My sister graduated college. And suddenly, I yearned for my early blogging days, when my blog played the part of record-keeper for all the main events in my life. 

And, really, my path from there was clear: a trip back to my blogging roots was the answer. 

So, what can you expect to see on this page as I blog every day in the month of June?

Well, you can expect to see a lot of the kinds of posts I used to do: snapshots, favorites [love lists], The Sunday Currently, reflections accompanied by photos, recent reading posts, weekenders, & the lot. I'll also be writing about my career change, our upcoming move, & more. I also plan to participate in more link-ups. 

The main point is, you will see me here every day of June 2014. And I am so very excited about that. I hope you are, too. Here we go!

Want to join me in blogging every day in June? The more the merrier. I even made a button to celebrate the occasion. Feel free to use it in your blog sidebar or in the body of your posts. Let's encourage one another to get back to our blogging roots. Happy blogging!

It's tricky to find that thing that caught and hooked us onto blogging in the first place, but it can be done! Wishing you a good voyage of discovery :D

Woot! I just finished up blogging every day in May and have been contemplating what to do in June. Now I'm wondering if I can pull off back to back dailies! Looking forward to your month of posts!

I blogged every day in May last year, & I loved it! Then I tried to do it again in August & it wasn't so great. I think it all has to do with your mindset & reasons for doing it. I'm so excited to do it this month! :)

Thank you so much! I agree - it's definitely possible, but it's a journey. Here's hoping that I will find it this month!
