Bitch! Where the hell have you been?

3 months! 3 MONTHS!! 3 MONTHS!!!!

Yeah, sorry for being a shitty blogger these past few months. Life has simply gotten in the way. So this is a mini-update of why I have been gone, plus a promise (that I hope I don’t fall short on) to get back into.

So in the beginning and pretty much through most of last year, blogging was something I looked forward to doing. It was an escape from everyday monotony and I truly LOVED it! When I had a post ready to write or publish, I would walk out of my shitty job at the end of the day and this was me…

But blogging can be hard work sometimes. It takes time, to write, to photograph, to edit, to test, to review, plus that whole task of coming up with good content – or shit you think at least one other person in the universe might want to read. So sometimes there are days like this…

But then you get a really good comment, or an awesome new follower, or some major website shares something you wrote, or you have a “They like me! They really like me!” moment when 2000 people share and like your post and it makes it all really exciting again…

And sometimes you get sent free stuff to review and you just gotta do that dance…

But then life smacks you in face and in my case it was a combination of things, though ultimately I had so many other things that I was seriously worried about, other necessary family, pet and financial responsibilities to handle, and a lot of job hunting stress that blogging turned into more work than fun for me.

I had so many posts in draft form, but could never get around to finishing and publishing them. I felt almost guilty and more stressed that I was some how wasting time blogging when I had more urgent issues to work out first.

Really, this may sound crazy and hell, I am crazy sometimes – down right ridiculous – I know, but I would be like “Yes, today wasn’t so bad and I have some time, I’m going to blog now!” and then…

So since some of what I was dealing with has been sorted out and my stress levels have gone down a tiny bit that brings me to right now, tonight, this moment, my first little step back into blogging (which for the record has been fun to write), because its awesome and you’re amazing followers and this whole process used to be so exciting for me.

I want to get back to this…

Come find me on Pinterest!

Yes, I have crossed over to the dark side and am officially hooked on Pinterest!

Part me feels like it’s ridiculous (and admittedly, it is), but it is just so addicting – pinning this, pinning that, re-pinning other users awesome finds.

So what are you waiting for – come checkout my boards! 

Are you awesome and on Pinterest? Let me know 🙂

Happy National Pet Day! with Guest Blogger: Ruby!!

HAPPY NATIONAL PET DAY!!!!!

I’m Ruby, and I’m a B.B. – no not a Beauty Balm (what ever that thing is – can I eat it??); I’m a Boxer Beagle!

I’m quite awesome, too smart for my own good, admittedly a bit sneaky and quite adorable – don’t you think? I know, I know – it’s so obvious, but I like the attention.

Well, I just wanted to remind you to give some extra lovin’ to your furry babies today (unless you have some strange fur-less pets, like a bird – not that I have anything against birds, I chase them sometimes when they get too close to my water bowl) – you know, your pets, ’cause well we love you, we love you a lot, for lots of reasons, and because you give us food.

Hey! Hey! Look what my mommy got because she loves me soooo much she has to make sure everyone knows it!! She said the Impulse-Buy Monster got her again – I wonder if she will let me lay on them, they look cozy. I love pillows! and food. I’m hungry, I better go bark for food 😀

Remember to love your pets (and me!), even when we are bad sometimes, because they love you no matter what!
