For a few months now, I've been thinking about unplugging my life, to some extent. I'm sure you can relate to the ever-present online "world," and the more I think about it, the less I want to live there! My heart is here at home with my family, and lately it has become really attractive to pare down and zero in on where my true happiness lies. I want to be a better example to my children, and, overall, I just want to feel more present. In short, I've decided not to blog here anymore. I've been blogging here for almost six years, and it just feels like the time has come to do something else. I used to love the idea of blogging, but with the advent of Pinterest, Instagram, and with the continuation of my family blog, I feel like A Room Somewhere has become superfluous. I have always thought that life is better when it is smaller and simpler, and I have just found better ways to spend my time and be productive. Or maybe I've just rediscovered them.
I never wanted my blog to be anything more than a collection of things that I love. I was not interested in blogging as a career, but as an expression. It has been so fun to connect with readers over the past few years, but I feel that connection has been lost in many ways. (Maybe it's because of Google Reader!) I can't say that I'll never post here again, but for now, I'm moving on. I'm a little sad, but mostly, I feel really good about this decision!
Thank you so much for reading, I have loved "meeting" new friends all over the world. You can find me on Instagram, Pinterest, Mormon.org, and once in a blue moon, on Twitter. I'll leave the blog intact, and will still be reachable via email, of course! firstname.lastname@example.org
