The time has come...


I have been struggling with this decision for quite a while, but the time has come to say...Goodbye.

The TMG blog has been a big part of my life for more than 2 years and I have put a lot of heart, soul, and time into it.  But over the past 6 months our readership has plummeted and views/comments are non-existent.  It is hard to keep going when you don't have anyone reading or participating.

On top of that, with two kids now, I find that I have next to no time to spare.  And if I do there are things like bathing or applying deoderant or changing my shirt that are a bigger priority than writing for the blog.  I just cannot find the time to sit down and blog.  Like right now, Baby J is napping and Miss A is watching TV...and I feel a heap of mommy guilt for typing this instead of playing with Miss A.

TMG has been my baby for a long time and it is so hard for me to say goodbye to her. *sniff* But I just do not have the time to put into TMG to get her back up and running and being a read-worthy blog.  It took so much time and energy to get her up and running the first time, I don't think I can do it again.  Plus my family is my number one priority and I cannot take time away from them.

I will be leaving the blog on the net for anyone looking around for reviews, info, etc.  And maybe some day down the road I will ressurect her, but for now, TMG is going to lay dormant, full of memories, and packed with some great insights for anyone looking.

I have been so blessed to have been able to create, run, and contribute to this amazing blog.  I have done so many things and had some wonderful opportunities because of this wonderful blog and the blogging world.  To everyone who has helped along the way...a HUGE thank you and a big helping of Gratitude for everything!

Thank you for Two and a Half wonderful years!  It sure was fun!  Be safe.  Be well.  And most of all, be happy!

Words from the TMG Contributors:

HI - I've really enjoyed my time here and feel like I've learned a lot. I am re-launching my personal blog "Along The Way" www.andtheycallherblessed.blogspot where I'll be talking about homeschooling, budgeting, cooking, deals and steals, family, Christian life, and anything else that comes to mind! I am hosting some awesome giveaways right now to celebrate my relaunch so come on over and enter now. Hope to see you there.
Blessings - Jessica B
 
I am so thankful that I got to be a part of this blog. I started out really enjoying posting and doing reviews. It was disappointing the lack of viewer participation and I found I lost my ambition to post. With a third child in the mix now, I find that I don't have as much time for being online. Also when I do find the time I don't feel like blogging. I really hope that you all found some of my babywearing series posts helpful and enjoyed the reviews I did as well. Wishing our readers all the best as I bid adieu. - Laura B.

  1. It's okay to step away from one thing in order to pour more time into family. Never feel guilty about your choice. I hope you really enjoy the time with your family - especially your kiddos. Unfortunately, we'll never be able to give every child all the attention we wish we could, but I hope this life change allows you feel better about the way you are spending your time. Best of luck! :)

  2. We will miss the blog! BUT family comes first, and I completely understand as a mother. Sometimes it is hard to balance work, family time, me time, blog time and the rest of life. Enjoy your time with your family, and hopefully one day you will have time to blog again :) Take care!! Best wishes :)

    1. PS- I read your blog, but most of the time on my phone due to a 1 year old. I usually don't get the chance to comment on many blog posts.

  3. Just wanted to say that I think you girls have done an excellent job with this blog. I was always saddened to see little, if any, comments. I know back when I was raising my babies a blog like this would have been Heaven sent! You did a great job with this blog, Laura D., and your recent helpers have as well. :)
