Hello, sorry I've been away for so long. The truth is I didn't really know what to blog about. Maybe because I didn't have anything blog worthy. Or maybe I was too busy. I sort of hope it was because I was enjoying life and not worrying about blogging. I don't think that was the case either. I was reading other peoples blogs and thinking "I really must post something soon". It's been 2 days since my last post. 3 days. 4, 5, and now 6? However why do I really care? Does anyone really care? This isn't a for profit blog. Not currently anyway, maybe in the future who knows. It was set up first as a pure illustration blog, recording my work and only that. Nothing really about my life or home, or anything outside illustration. Then Stanley came along and I felt lost in my work, out of touch and sort of re-invented the blog to include him. To post creatively, to make me feel like that part of my life, being a Mum was also work, creative work. Somewhere along the line my hits went up a bit. Nothing major really but that made me feel I ought to blog more, and made me conscious about what content I was posting. I feel like I've become a jack/blog of all trades, master of...... Posting on random subjects, not really sticking to one thing. I'm not sure this really matters, but I think recently I felt my posts have become content weak. I'm just sticking up a few pictures and writing a sentence or two, not really worthy of a whole blog post but desperate to make sure I've at least blogged today. Anyway I guess what I'm trying to say is perhaps I'll blog a little less, but hope to have more interesting posts. I think that sounds like total common sense now, but took me a while to realise it! I hope that the mixture of the illustration/baby thing is ok too. And those of you that read my blog for illustration don't roll your eyes when a 'Stanley Style' or other baby related post crops up. I've realised too that blogging properly takes time, which I don't have a vast amount of. I like my evenings to myself and my husband and don't want to be attached to this darn computer when Stanley has gone to bed. I want to enjoy my time instead of documenting it and sticking it up here for all to see. I also need to do work. Paid work. I need to get cracking on several book projects that I have to devote much more time to if I'm going to succeed at them. Hopefully I'll be able to post about them up here soon, and many more interesting things....just maybe not so often in future. Thanks for reading and commenting though when you do. It is always nice to hear from you.
