I haven't written many personal posts lately. Seven and a half years ago, when I started blogging, I wrote about so many different parts of my life, sharing so many things with whoever wanted to read it. And for a long time I was lucky enough to have quite a large, but close group of readers.
A few years ago, when I became editor of Sew Hip, how I blogged changed. Partly because I was aware that I was representing something bigger than just me and my family, and partly because there was so much negative stuff going on with Sew Hip that would have been unprofessional to talk about, that I had to censor myself constantly.
After I left Sew Hip, I had hoped to rekindle my love of blogging, but really I just never got it back. My trust in putting so much of myself out there then took another battering last year, and that combined with personal events, like my mum's cancer, has resulted in me shying away from sharing myself and has turned this blog a bit of a dull, baren spot.
I was talking to my mum today and she told me that I don't write any real posts anymore. And she's right. And she said that maybe I should. And she's right. So I'm going to try to rekindle my love of real blogging by trying to get back in to the swing of writing real posts about the real stuff that happens in my life!
As well as writing about fabric....of course!!
