Why hello there! It HAS been awhile, hasn't it? I took a much-needed break from social media this past few weeks and let me tell you it was refreshing and it served to put my priorities in order! It was so nice to not have to answer to social media deadlines and to realize if I drop out of circulation for awhile, the world will definitely continue to revolve. It made me realize that nothing is more important than my own little world, family, circle of friends, and loved ones. I mean, the world is going to do what it's going to do, and what I might have to say in this space won't really do much to change it. What I CAN do is make sure my own garden is well tended and those around me know that I am there for them. And how better can I do that than to take care of myself? Oddly enough, there are a few other people out there who feel somewhat the same, although they are much more vocal and definitely have a way of expressing it! For instance this little lady, apparently is walking away! After being a part of the cookie cutter, in it to win it, daily sponsored post club, saying exactly what the companies want her to say, she is now supposedly done with it all! (We'll see...) She is revolting and revealing what she feels are the dirty little secrets of the mom blogger! Then there is the more positive sister who talks about how the mom bloggers have saved her and also how her own blogging is more of a therapeutic exercise for her and if she helps someone else along the way, wonderful!!! One thing is for sure, social media is here to stay until such time that it all blows up in our faces, which I think it eventually will, but that's another discussion entirely! Until then, I don't feel bad for hopping off the train once in awhile! You should too, it's like a breath of fresh air!! In the meantime,
Today is "My Post Monday!" It's
all about original content from bloggers who care
to share what is on their minds--from Crafts to Camping, Wellness to
Wealth, Fashion to Food, and whatever else is on the brain! I
open up with a post of my own and then follow it up with a linky of the
week's top original blog posts! It's all about what the writer thinks,
knows--in other words, they are active, writing blogs. If
I happen to find a great original, non-sponsored post, I'll link it up
it with you
here and on Twitter via the #MyPostMonday hashtag! I can miss some amazing posts, but I don't want to!
So, in addition,
if you'd like to link up yourself, you can do that too! I'll visit your
site, comment, promote and publicize! (Affiliate links welcome!)
I'm also linked up to Monthly Coffee!
