Hi. I’m Annie. I’ve been writing this blog (almost) daily for the past 3 years. I adore writing and I get giddy when I read a new comment on a post. Since I started writing about weight loss in July 2009, I have weaned 2 children, put one in Kindergarten, grown a home farm, bought some chickens, and started writing for other sites.
I have also started to travel. Oh my word – I had no idea traveling was so exhausting! When I was a little girl, I read book after book and dreamed of traveling the globe and seeing the world! I adore traveling, but since July I have been to St. Louis, NYC, New Orleans and Chicago. I am ready for a break! Really ready.
Blogging takes a ton of work beyond just the writing of a post. Editing photos, shooting and editing vlogs, promoting posts, commenting on blogs to encourage traffic and comments on my own posts. Then there is the e-mail communications and social media interaction. All of it I love and this is seriously my dream job!
But I am taking a paid vacation. I am almost at burn out. I need to step away and re-evaluate my blog, my purpose for writing. What is my passion? Why am I blogging?
You might see less product reviews. You might see less giveaways. Who knows.
Thankfully I have amazing friends and while I am away, this blog will have some seriously awesome content scheduled! Enjoy their posts. Tweet it, share it, comment.
Thank you for being the best readers ever!! I really appreciate you more than you know! See you in a week!
