Hi! I feel a little sheepish. Not a single post since July? A brief blog break turned into two and a half months of silence. I'm sorry if you came here during that time wondering what happened! We've been busy exploring California, traveling to see family, getting our house all set up, and trying to keep up with our boys. Lots of good stuff, lots of adjustment, and lots of thinking happened. Also, we just went on a trip to New York City so I'd love to follow that up with a rundown of my favorite places to eat, shop, see when in the city. I've been meaning to pull together a city guide for a very long time and this just may be the time I actually do it.
I love this blog. Keenan built it for me when I started writing for Design Mom so I could have a place I was proud of to direct traffic to. When I began writing here, I had no idea what exactly I wanted to create, or even specifically post on. I am the ultimate *generalist* so it was hard to narrow my focus and say, I write about graphic design, or I write about mom stuff or my family, or New York stuff, or small stuff. (There's my obsession with miniature stuff again.) But I feel like it grows when I grow. It's silent when I'm focused on other things, or a creative outlet when I need one. It's my home base for my for my writing. My blog feels more like a blob of my Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, email and Bloglovin' feed these days. They all go together and I have dear friends and awesome acquaintances on all of them. Even if I'm not blogging, it still feels like I stay in touch if I'm tweeting or following my feed, you know? Do you feel the same way?
Just one more thing—a conversation* topic keeps popping up with friends and family about how frustrated/tired we are with how hard it is to put down our phones and focus. The guilt, the waste of time, jealously, the overload, etc. I'd love to write a little more about this as I gather my thoughts. Hopefully pull in some good resources. It just keeps coming up so I have to talk about it. *Screen fatigue.
(I'd love to hear your thoughts on it or hear of any links you've found helpful. Email me Koseli Cummings @ gmail or tweet me @OriginalKos, okay? )
P.S. Started a site that pokes fun at the idea that moms are bored and boring. It's called—you guessed it—Bored Moms. Needs a lot of work but I am so impressed with the reception so far. We've struck a nerve. I'll write more about it soon.
P.S.S. Thank you to PJ for including my thoughts in her post on blogging and jealousy. Always a timely post.
