Let’s face it – I am not a blogger or a social media guru. While I do enjoy sharing my experiences and inspiration here on Den & Delve, it is purely a hobby and creative outlet for me. Time is precious, and an active life with a full-time job, husband, dog, travel, family, friends (the list goes on!) doesn’t always leave time to share, post and pull together witty commentary. When I read those articles about how blogging is a full-time job, I can believe it. For anyone who routinely visits this site (other than my mom and husband… hi guys!), you’ve probably noticed I often go long periods without posting any new content. That’s because life is happening and I’m actually in it. Whether I’m working, enjoying personal or family time, or just plain lazy, I’m busy living life – and I’m completely ok with that. For this reason, I will start to feature Inspiration Archives (aka creatively lazy): all the things or places I never quite got around to sharing. I’m always snapping pics while traveling and hunting around for treasures and still have many things to share!
A friend recently asked for opinions and then made the decision to shut down her long-time blog to make time for new endeavors and growth – creatively, professionally and personally. Another witty friend replied to her announcement: “Kill it. Blogs are so 2012.” Funny!… but definitely something to think about. In the meantime, I’m content to take things at a pace that feels right for my life and intentions. I still believe that a little visual inspiration is important for everyone (even if just a little screen time) and I hope to bring that to others through Den & Delve.
