Ending my blogging hiatus

Why hello there strangers!

It is so nice to see all of you again!

Oh how I've missed you.

I never imagined that I would miss blogging as much as I have?!?

I know it has been awhile and I have dabbled with coming back before but this time I really mean it!

After a brief lay-off, long hours of working a not-so-swell job, a scary bout of pneumonia that landed me in the hospital and life in general I am finally ready to enter back into the world of blogging.

My how the blogging world has changed and grown since I've been gone.

Bloggers that I followed/befriend have gotten married, had babies, grown into HUGE blogging successes, and sadly, have even passed away. (you will be missed prissy green)

I have thought a lot about how I want to do this and I have decided that I want to stay "old school"

I first started this green blog because I was so excited about the journey that my family and I were embarking on. We were just learning what it meant to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, discovering new products, learning about organic foods, entering into (what seemed like) a whole new world.

I started this blog because I wanted to share that world and my excitement about entering into it with others. I was hoping that maybe, just maybe, I could persuade others to take that journey with us.

As much as I would love lots of people to read my blog I just don't want to go down the road of sponsors, advertisements, contacts, etc. If this means that I have only a hand-full of readers then so be it.  We will become a small close nit group of eco journeyers ;-)

With that said,when I find a product/company I love I will still do reviews and I will still gladly  host give-a-ways (when I am fortunate enough to be asked to do so by wonderful eco companies!)

To all those readers who stuck around I would like to say Thank-You!

I will gladly 2nd that Thank You with an extra entry on the 1st 2 give-a-ways that I host.

Just leave a comment here or send me an e-mail. I would love to hear from you!

Now, back to our regularly scheduled eco-journey

welcome back!!! I'm glad you are healthy and happy- I was wondering where you had gone... and was sending positive vibes your way. :)

Thank you for the congrats on the wedding- I'm not sure if I even blogged about the name thing beyond that first time.... perhaps I should :) Wasn't sure if people were interested lol.

I agree with you 100% about staying 'old school'. I couldn't be bothered with the advertising and stuff. However I am having a hard time staying excited about the green movement... just with the overwhelming feeling of not being able to make a difference... I'm sure it will pass.

I needed to read this post- so thank you! :)

I'm glad you're back!

There are times when I think of giving up the blog, I mean, it's sometimes too much to handle. I'm not all that sure I'll continue once my next child is born--how will I find the time?

I'm looking forward to some "old school" blogging around here!

So glad you're back!

I found you looking for better candy choices and read back through everything and was so sad when you disappeared!!

Yay to being back!

@eco: Thank you for the good vibes. I needed them and they seem to have worked ;-) I am very interested in the name thing so you are going to have to blog about it. I can't wait to read it!

@K You may have to take a bit of a hiatus too but you may find that blogging is a nice "me time" activity. I bet you can type one-handed while feeding the baby. ;-)

@B: Thank you and nice to hear from you. I hope you found some of my posts helpful. I look forward to getting to know you better.

@GG: Hello again! I have to catch up on your life too. I can't wait to see what you have been up to.

Thank you all for your welcome backs. It feels so nice.
