A Change In Direction

I feel like I am sort of floundering around here at Eskimo Kisses and Air Hugs. When I started this blog almost three years ago my hope was to share stories and family life for our friends far away. Then it turned into a way for me to just share stories. Then I broke my blog off into four parts dealing with our new homeschool adventure, one for crafts, and one about home and garden. This one became dedicated to my writing.

I've met some amazing writers and friends through this blog . But here is my problem I'm running out of things to say. My writing journey is a very slow one, by choice, and I feel most of you are far ahead of me in this journey. I'm happy about that because I'm learning so much from you. You are guiding me along my path.

Right now my blogs and my family column are my writing. Very rarely do I get a chance to sit down and write like I used to. I'm finally at peace with that. God has lead me to this point in my life and I feel I need to follow the path He has given me.

So my plan for now is to blog here once a week and keep up with all your blogs as you post. My passion right now is to concentrate my writing on my Home and Garden blog and until the summer break my Homeschool blog. I'd love to have you catch up with me at one of those blogs during the times I'm not writing here. Probably won't be talking much about the art of writing over there, but I'll teach you all about driving tractors, feeding the Christmas fox, and my kids cooking adventures!

So I'll leave you with this today:

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
~Irish Blessing

Beautiful Irish thought at the end there!

Wishing you the best, Kara. I think you're right to follow your heart, and He'll honor that.

Thank you Janna, I believe I will have more time for my writing when the time is right:)

The scope (or platform??) of my blog seems to be evolving also. Guess that is the nature of such things--which might be a good thing.

Kara said...

Terri, you are right and I'm driven right now to expand on my other blogs while I soak up all of my writing friends wisdom!
Pat, yes I think evolving is good as well:)

Good for you. With young kids and all the other tasks in a day, it's difficult to keep up with one blog, let alone more. Enjoy your decision!
