Thoughts on Blogging and Our Weekend

By Cedar | February 19, 2013

I wish I was a more devoted blogger. Some people have their blog posts lined up days in advance and a calendar planning out future topics. I, on the other hand, don’t usually have much of a plan when I sit down to write. Well, that is untrue, sometimes I have a recipe to type up, or a handful of pictures from a recently finished project. Most days though, I upload my photos and see if I can string together some sort of profound (or at least coherent) thought based on the moments I captured. I rarely succeed, but I keep trying.

Maybe that is just part of my personality. I hate feeling pressured into finishing things by a certain time, and I like a slightly unstructured life where I can do things at my own pace. I do however think I would like to start devoting a bit more of my time and thoughts to this space. I bought a little notebook that fits in my purse recently, and I plan on using it to jot down thoughts and notes. I haven’t used something like this in years (though I kept a journal most of my youth and into my early 20s), but I am hoping at the end of the day if I look back over it I might feel a bit more inspired to actually write something other than, “hey, check out my pics, yo!”.

So, look at my pics, yo! (just kidding, sort of)

We had another relaxing weekend at home. The first picture is of a spaghetti fritatta. I was a bit skeptical, but intrigued, when I came across the recipe in this book. Luckily we ended up really enjoying it, because we had enough to eat for a few days.

I knit up another baby hat. This on is for Russ’ aunt, who is giving birth to a baby boy this week. This is the pattern I followed.

The weather was so warm this weekend, we stuck Lucy in her swimsuit and filled a metal basin with water. She splashed around and helped us water the plants. I am excited for summer to arrive.

    When I first started blogging I didn’t blog everyday. I think it was like maybe three times a week. Then I took almost a full year off! Then I decided to become a “professional” blogger and it was only then I thought about an editorial calender, etc. And even with all that I rarely have prewritten posts. I say do what feels right for you and remember that you can change it at any time for any reason. I love your blog and enjoy reading it any time you post, whether that is once a week or every day.

    Thanks doll,

    I really enjoy your pics (and makes and recipes). It is cold and wet here, and your photos remind me that soon my girl and I will be outside more, too, enjoying the sunshine.

    I do the same thing! I hate feeling pressured. I’ve always felt like you post pretty regularly, so don’t worry about it!

    I love that hat. I made a similar one for Oliver and it’s been his go-to hat this winter.
