Heart to Heart ~ Should I Stop Blogging?

Image result for heart to heart


I wanted to have a heart to heart conversation today.

I've been blogging for well over 10 years now.  I can't believe that it has been that long!  I started when my girls were both pretty young as a creative outlet and a way to document what was going on in our lives.

Lately, it has been feeling more like a chore that I need to check off my daily "to-do" list.  I still enjoy blogging, I just don't know if I've outgrown it.

Here's where you, my readers, come in to the picture.  

What do you think?  Should I stop blogging?  Should I keep blogging but modify my schedule in someway?

What features do you like?  Do you actually read my posts?

I know I have a few faithful followers but I get so few comments that sometimes it feels like I'm talking to myself.

Is blogging a thing of the past?  Should I just concentrate on Instagram or something else?

I just really don't know what I want to do.  What do YOU want me to do?  Your feedback would mean the world to me!

Thanks so much for reading and commenting!

  1. Oh I hope you don't stop blogging. I feel like we share so much of our lives here and you do so many types of posts. I love to read your Happy Homemaker, your Thankful Thursday and Your Work in Progress posts. I even like reading your weigh ins and I am so looking forward to your Pen Pal exchanges. You write excellent book reviews and I have found a wide assortment of books on your site.
    However, maybe adjust your schedule and not write daily. Although I will certainly miss you!

  2. I gave up blogging for about 10 months, but I am back now. I enjoy blogging - makes me feel somewhat creative to put a post together. Also, I print off my posts every year in a blog book (kind of expensive though) and my blog has become like a family history journal. I enjoy reading your blog. I hope you stay, but do what works best for you.

  3. You can't put this on your readers. You have to decide if you want to blog or not. That is a personal choice. We're just along for the ride till it ends.

  4. Wow. Some interesting comments so far. I liked that you put it out there and don't feel it is 'put on your readers'. In my opinion maybe you just need some affirmation. I hope that you continue. 10 years is a long time. I don't come by as often. Not because of your writing or not writing or my lack of interest but because of my current 'life situation'. I have slowed way down on posts and my blog has suffered. I have less and less comments but when I look at my stats I see there is still traffic and on occasion I'll have a comment from someone I thought had left me. I think overall people are just commenting less. Too much FB and Instagram. You've invested alot here and I and I know others appreciate you. Your family appreciates you. I'll be praying for you and coming by when I can. Don't sweat it and see where God leads you.
