Last week was when we were hit by Snowmageddon here in Delaware. The feet of snow that fell on our beaches led to everything being shut down. At first school closed for Monday and Tuesday, then it closed for Wednesday, then on Wednesday we got the call that we wouldn't be going back until today.
It was such a treat to be given a weeks vacation to hang out at home. I enjoyed waking up late, staying in my pj's all day, playing with the kids, baking/cooking, reading, knitting, and even doing a little (and I do mean little) cleaning and organizing around the house.
But one of the best things about being off for a week was that I rediscovered my love of blogging. This week I learned that I really missed writing on my blog, visiting my favorite bloggers, finding new blogs to read, and just the whole blogosphere.
I loved spending mornings writing new posts. I got to share our blizzard adventures, including the snowmen we made, and how the snow gave me a gift. I confessed my fear of failing, and wrote a few posts about my experience with the Special K challenge too. I was once again bitten with the blogging bug and now have a list on my phone and computer with post ideas. I even have an idea for a weekly meme that I want to start hosting soon!
With my renewed interest in all things blogging, I also decided it's time for some changes around this here blog of mine. I've got a fresh design in the works and am super excited for you to see it. Jo-Lynne from DCRdesigns is working with me to create a fantabulous new look. At first I didn't want to change it till spring because the snowmen seems fitting for our weather lately, but as I keep seeing bits and pieces, I don't think I'm going to be able to wait that long. I just love makeovers!!
In my effort to make my blog even better I'm also trying to see what my readers think about it. I put together a quick, 10 question, survey to see what you all like and
So that's what I've learned this week.
I've learned that I've missed my online community and I'm coming back!!
