Hello From the Other Side...of Crazytowne

{I must have started this post a thousand times...}

Dear Crazytowne Friends,

{Waving}

It's so great to see you!!!

I wanted to pop in here today because I have a bit of an announcement to make.

You might have noticed (perhaps), that I have been taking a little break from blogging lately (but haven't missed a second sharing idiotic cat videos and fattening recipes on Facebook...).

In the past few months, I've been feeling a little funny (unsure & indecisive....) about my blogging "job" (job meaning something that you do to get paid). After taking a bit of a break from it & reflecting, I have realized why I've been feeling that way...

This time last year I decided to take my blogging to a different level and try to earn an income for the time I spent rambling on & sharing my crafty projects.

Well, long story short...I have decided that I am not going to pursue blogging for profit anymore.

Here are a few quick reasons why (in case you were wondering, I know my mother is reading on here):

1. Blogging for the intention of "making a profit" has been very uninspiring. It has just not felt genuine to me at all. I started to feel like I was blogging for the sake of posting a link that someone might buy something from and not being true to my readers who originally came to this blog for a laugh about the personal struggles and craziness of parenting & a spark of creative inspiration.

2. Blogging for the intention of "making a profit" also seemed to be taking me away from directing my readers toward love and grace. I have always tried to use my platform on social media to help or inspire other moms. I've loved being able to share motivation and spiritual growth here on the blog.

3. Blogging for the intention of "making a profit" started to make me feel like a big phony. I love to shop and decorate and all that good stuff, but I don't do it all the time (cough, P Daddy might argue with that statement...).

I love to help others, lift them up, donate my time or donate money if needed. I don't want people to read this blog and think "she's out of touch with reality on Planet Lilly Pulitzer for Target"...

I can assure you I am 100% in touch with reality. I am tough on my kids, I am a cheerleader for hard work and getting after it, I clip coupons, I hunt for bargains, I cook, I clean...I am just a plain old, simple little housewife! Plain Jane, all the way!

So, long story short...I have decided that I am not going to pursue blogging for profit anymore. I'm going to back to plain Jane, simple blogging for fun (with an occasional affiliate link). ;)

I hope you will come back and visit again soon, we have got a ton of catching up to do!!!!

Thank you Crazy Crafty Southern Mama friends for stopping by to visit today, I'm so tickled that you did!

I'll be back with some fun crafty, thrifty, bargain hunting, coupon clipping, spray paint craziness soon.

Mwah,

Mandy
