I have been a bit lazy about posts lately. Several times I have thought that I need to write something to stay current. And from that statement, I remember that is not why I write this and my other blog.
I originally started writing 2MorrowsDress.com blog for therapeutic reasons. After closing my retail dress store I felt relieved and a bit empty inside (not just my back account). I poured my heart & soul into my business. I learned I can push myself farther than I ever thought. I learned that I love working for myself. And I learned so many valuable lessons about life and business.
Sure, I could have started a personal journal as my creative outlet. But there was actual content that I wanted to share with others. Yes, a picture is worth a thousand words, but so many life lessons require more than just a picture book so I skip Instagram. Perhaps I am old fashioned, Twitter makes my head hurt. I like to write. I like to communicate information, thoughts, and express my feelings. Writing is an undervalued communication tool. Regular blog posts keep my skills active and sharp.
A friend recently asked me to dig up a post from two years ago. She remembered the article and wanted to share, as it so perfectly fit a situation in her life. I was flattered that the article stuck with her for so long, and it still contained pertinent information. This is why I write and share on multiple blogs. I started JenThereDoneThat.com after a road trip with my Sister, discussing all of the out of the way, fun and interesting activities in my life and wanting to share those, too.
So, I am back. Maybe you missed me. Maybe this is the first post you have ever read from me. Keep reading, there are many previous posts and there will be many more. I hope you like them.
