New Blog?

I haven't been catering my time to this blog lately and for those of you who enjoy the things I post, I'm sorry for leaving this blog for the past few months without any explanation. Get ready for a long explanation... I'd suggest getting a cup of tea and maybe some (vegan) chocolate chip cookies; it's that type of post!

Around November, I decided I wanted to start a new blog. Little did I know, creating a new professional blog came with lots of time and many, many head aches. After initially deciding I wanted to start a new blog, it took me three months to actually think of a decent blog name. Finally, after thinking of a blog name, I had to add up all the expenses that came with this new website (domains, themes, hosting, and all the other tech/web words in the dictionary). I don't have a lot of money reserved for blogging and I'm not someone who typically likes working with other people, so hiring someone to do all that for me was not an option. Also, this is still just a hobby so I don't want to invest lots of money into this new blog, especially since I'm not even sure it will work out.

I'm now 4 months into creating this new blog and I'm still not ready to launch it, which is incredibly frustrating. If any of you reading this know of any good Wordpress Template/Theme creators that aren't ridiculously expansive, please be sure to let me know in the comments! You would save me more headaches in the future! :-)

For the future of this blog I think I might continue to post thoughtful/rambling posts. I'm definitely not deleting it, if that's what any of you were thinking. I worked way too hard and gained lots of blog friends (followers) from this spot on the internet, I can't get rid of it. Plus, I feel like the past 3 years of my life have been documented here. I like having places I can go to look back at different moments in my life. A little internet scrap book.

While we all wait for the shiny new blog, follow me on Twitter and Instagram. I'll be sure to post on Twitter, Instagram, and this blog when the new blog is live!

xo, Sarah Holt

ps
Happy Valentine's Day! Sorry for the lack of romance and flowers in this post. I'll try harder next time.
