Welcome back to Tenacious Genealogy! June has been a crazy month for me, so I’ll keep this short and sweet. This is a different sort of post (but related to genealogy kinda)…
Since starting this blog, I’ve learned a lot of things.
- How to run a non-personal blog
- It’s fun, it’s hard, and there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. Especially with stuff like GDPR popping up. But it’s definitely something that I want to continue pursuing.
- The world of genealogy bloggers
- There are a LOT of amazing genealogy bloggers out there that I’ve been able to learn from and interact with. My knowledge of genealogy in general (which was pretty good to begin with) has grown substantially.
- I have (and am) making a lot of new friends through blogging about genealogy and history.
- The level of difficulty that is part of running a blog while working full time, being pregnant, and running after a toddler
- Yeah… Straight up kudos to all the mommy bloggers out there, juggling life and running a blog. It’s no small feat.
- Life is awesome, but sometimes between everything, the juggling gets hard.
- That sometimes you need a break
- This last one definitely. I’m very much a ‘go, go, go’ kind of person. I like being productive. But when you have a bunch of things to get done, sometimes the things you *want* to get done, don’t necessarily get done.
- Having a break is not a bad thing, either. I have to remind myself that growing a baby, keeping up with a very active toddler, and working full time are each – well, full-time jobs.
So what does this mean?
I’m taking the summer to focus on the newest part of my family and myself. Given that this is my second go around in the parenting rodeo, I know dealing with a newborn while healing up and everything else takes a LOT of energy… so I’m going to give myself some time to rest and get ready for the fun (insert sarcasm), sleep deprived days that are ahead.
I plan to be back in the fall – hopefully October (right in time for National Genealogy Month) with more new stuff. In the meantime, feel free to check out the posts I’ve already posted.
