How you doing?
So I have neglected this little blog of mine, again. Very badly.
To be honest, part of me was thinking maybe I should just leave it altogether, let the cyber-dust gather and just get on with other things. See, as well as a lack of time, I've had a complete lack of motivation for blogging - partly because I've been having a bit of a blog identity crisis. I don't really know where I 'fit' in the blog universe, if there is such a thing. I'm really not a 'mummy blogger', although I do have a little dude, I don't think I count as a craft blogger just because I like making things, I'm not so deluded as to class myself as any sort of 'writer' and I definitely don't have the domestic goddess skills to keep up with all the 'home/cooking/lifestyle' blogesses I love so much.
But then it hit me, the whole 'point' of my blog, is that there isn't really a point. It's just me. Babbling about life. Things i'm making, things I'm doing, things I'm thinking just... things. And that's fine. Actually, that's perfect. I've never been the sort of girl that really 'fits in', so why start now?
I like that my blog doesn't fit neatly into a category. I like that it's just a bit of a jumble - of memories, photos, thoughts and things. It's why there's no way I could ever just 'leave' this little chunk of internet to gather dust. It's like my favourite pair of boots - bit beaten up, not always in style, but so comfy, so me, and I just love them - couldn't ever bear to throw them away.
So in short, I'm going to give it another whirl. I'll do my best to post more often, may even spruce the place up a little, but I'm not making any promises. My blog will remain what it's always been. A place for me to put things, and if anyone else feels like taking a look, well that's lovely too.
With that in mind, and for posterity & my own neurotic craziness, here is the end of 2012 in photo mosaic form. Because y'know, the world might go pop if I don't do it. And also, it was a lot of fun.
It's been a great year, but I have every confidence that 2013 will be even better.
Hope yours is fantastic too.
