If you come here often, you’re at the right place, I promise.
After agonizing (seriously) for the better part of a year or more, I finally decided to change my blog’s name from Mommy Cracked to Read. Write. Mom!. Besides the occasional weird looks I would get when telling people about my blog’s former name, I just feel like this name fits me better. I love to read and write, but my greatest joy is being a mom. I’ve also found myself slowing down a little here in the blog world. While school is in, I just can’t keep up the blogging pace like I would like to sometimes. I’m learning I have to become a little more intentional with my spare time. I’ve found myself reading more and having a real craving to write. Not blog, but to just let thoughts flow freely on paper. It may never lead to anything serious, but it’s an amazing outlet that is really therapeutic for me right now. I’ve also realized that I have been too caught up into turning this blog into something it’s not. I started with no intentions other than sharing my life, and I’m finally ready to get back to basics.
I’m sure going to miss my little shoe and egg, though. Change is hard for me. I’m really trying to be open to the possibilities here.
I don’t plan any major changes to this blog other than the name. I am going to try to share more posts about books I’ve read and a little more about my job as a children’s librarian.
So, I hope you will still stick with me. And also? Greg at Engine 1 Media designed my new blog header and he is amazing. I highly recommend him if you need a fresh, new look for your blog.
