Is it dead?

ASP_AimsPhotography_2017-1

I’ve been asking myself lately (among the bazillion other things always swirling through my mind) if my blog is dead.

Yes.

And no.

I don’t know.

I guess I haven’t decided how or if I’ll try resurrecting it. I’ve considered many times deleting it and/or starting a new one.  I’ve tried and pressured myself many times to restart or keeping going from where I left off.  I’ve realized that that would be impossible because in the five years since I started blogging I’ve almost become a completely different person.  In five years not only have I gotten married, I’ve become a mother, and my hubby and I have build a house (well, almost…it isn’t finished yet haha.) Going through all of those life events changes you.  Part of me wishes I could have kept up with the blog for my own sake to be able to look back at the memories.

This blog is special though because it’s a little piece of my personal history that will always be there. The pictures and the memories tied to it are priceless especially as I see how much my family has changed as well and how my little siblings have grown up into beautiful teenagers.

I still love creating…and maybe this will grow into a new and different creative outlet.

The possibilities are endless…and maybe that’s the best part?

Always, Aims

 

Post Number 100?!

My 100th blog post…how cool it that?! 🙂

(Where has the time gone?!)

It’s been just over five months since I started blogging consistently (and yes, I know the last couple weeks haven’t been that consistent. 😛 ) Summer has been crazy with so many extra little things and parties and…everything!

However, looking back over the few months that I’ve been blogging…it’s been exciting; a learning experience – to be sure – but in a great one! 🙂 I love looking at my stats page… to see which countries have viewed my blog (to date, 73 different countries have viewed this blog…that’s pretty amazing if you think about it!) adding up to over 13,000 blog visits with over 200 followers. Connecting with so many different people from so many different places would never have happened otherwise! When I log into WordPress it’s almost as if the whole world shrinks and is suddenly at my fingertips… (but that’s just one of the wonders of the internet in general, I guess.) But, it still amazes me – so there. 😛

So thanks, to my followers, to my family, and to my friends (those who comment and those who don’t 😉 ) for all the support! Blogging would be boring without you all!

It’s been a fantastic journey so far, thanks for joining me during my first 100… I for one, am looking forward to the next 100! 😀

Always, Aims

P.s. I promised myself once, that I would never publish a blog post without (at least) one picture…however, my mind kept coming up blank trying to think of a picture to go with this post. (This also may or may not have to do with the fact that it’s Monday morning and I haven’t had coffee yet…) I just can’t even think of something that would be fitting. :-S

So, my 100th blog post is also my first picture-less post!
