Bad blogger!

There’s no denying it – I am a very bad blogger. As all of my loyal readers (Hi Mom & Dad!) keep telling me, they’re a bit tired of reading about how I used a machete to break down compost.

Last week hit a major milestone – 1 year of owning our house. So I thought it was a good excuse to dust off my WordPress password and start blogging again. Hopefully I’ll stick with it this time.

I wish I could say that we were too busy to blog because all of our time to spent doing tons of mind-blowing DIY home renovations, but unfortunately that’s not the case.

We worked like crazy during that 1st month before we moved to tackle everything on our ambitious pre-move project list. Not having to move furniture & boxes multiple times was great motivation to get the basics (wall repair/paint, floors & baseboards) done in time. Once we moved, we thought we deserved a little breather. That breather lasted almost a year. It’s not that we didn’t get any projects done, it just didn’t feel like they were big blog-worthy projects. Or noticeable ones to anyone but us (like taming our crazy yard). And this blogging thing takes up a lot of time. Especially when you have a day job. And like to chillax after work instead of spending evenings working on projects and then staying up late blogging about them.

But I did really love posting what we were up to with the house. It was a lot of fun looking back on what we were able to do, especially since I’d never done anything like this before. It was also a huge motivator to want to show our progress. 

So I’m going to give it another go.
