I’ve been neglecting this blog for a long time. I began to feel constricted by my own mandate to post daily. I had less time, what with all of the volunteering I began Son’s school as he entered kindergarten.
I just didn’t wanna.
And it wasn’t my only my own blog I neglected. I have about fifty blogs in my Google reader, and went months without reading a single entry. Not other finance blogs, not coupon or bargain blogs, not even my friends’ Mommy blogs.
I’m doing even more volunteering this school year, chairing a very important advisory committee, and taking on the Room Mom responsibilities in Son’s classroom. But I’m finding myself wanting to write.
So, yesterday I signed into this blog. And I was shocked to see that even after months of inactivity on my part, anywhere between 80 and a few hundred people a day have continued to stop by, reading a post or twelve.
I was shocked. Guess I may have written a decent article or two, huh?
So, here I am. Probably not daily. And I’ve started reading others’ blogs again. I see I’ve missed a ton of great stuff.
And thank you, especially to those who continued to visit. And please, come back often.

For what it’s worth, My boys are 19 and 22, and are moving apace in life, and I stayed home and did the school volunteering thing, and it’s all good…

Hi, I just discovered your blog yesterday – funny about money gave you a rec so I came over to check it out and really enjoyed reading your posts. I went back quite a ways!
It IS hard to fit everything in that you want to do when the kids are young and there is so much to do for them. It is important to be involved in your son’s school. Also the clubs, teams, whatever he gets involved in. You will never regret the time spent on those activities. Hopefully it won’t be too hard to carve out a little time for your writing!

@Deedee – Thank you for sticking around and reading back. What a nice compliment! I only have the one child, so I am savoring every moment!
