my dear followers

Dear friends, followers, family and stalkers,

I have an apology to make.

To you.

I'm nearing my one year anniversary of blogging and looking back have realized just how far i've come in such a short time. I never imagined that people would actually read my blog (of their own free will).

I could never have predicted how many things in my life have changed in the last year...

And I also never thought I would have to do this next terrible thing... the thing I am about to share with you.

Today, for the first time ever...

I clicked the button on my google reader... the one that reads:

"Mark all as read"

It's true.

I did it.

The truth is, I love my bloggie friends and this great blogging community that I have become a part of... however, real life calls. And lately it's been calling to the tune of 70+ hours a week.

Not including social activities or business planning.

My life is INSANE.

Last night I had a minor meltdown about the fact that I have so little time to do anything that deviates from my jam-packed schedule.

... and I decided that I would have to make some sacrifices.

There are a few things that I'm cutting down on and some I'm actually giving up...

But since I love blogging so much and I really feel that it helps me stay focused, that is not one the things to be going.

However, I am going to change my reading/commenting madness policies.

I am going to try and read blogs during the week... but if I don't have time, at the end of the week... they're all getting marked as read. And a new week begins.

Anyways, I wanted to let you know so you didn't think i dropped off the face of the earth! I'll still be around, I just can't be around as much as I used to be. When winter rolls around, we'll see if that changes... but honestly, I thought that when fall rolled around, things would slow down. I'm busier now than I was in the summer!

Ok, enough said. I hope you all have a wonderful evening. I have a LOT of pictures and will be sharing them as soon as I finish editing them. I did 2 shoots last week and have 3 scheduled for this week. YIKES! and then more next week... my goal of 3/week for next summer is starting to look more realistic...

Also, my website is coming along quite nicely! I don't want to jump the gun... but a little birdie told me it may be out sooner than planned ;)

I totally understand that! "Mark all as read" is okay and should be used when things are crazy and other things need to take priority.
I know it is hard because we feel like we will lose readers or hurt someone's bloggy feelings if we don't comment, but we should all understand that we do have lives and our number one priority should never be blogging or blog commenting.
Enjoy all the shoots you have coming up. Can't wait to see some new pics.

That happened to me accidentally one time, and you know what? Life went on. Totally okay to do (as long as you keep reading MY blog, lol).
