Life After Blog

When I shut down my blog several months ago, it was because I just didn’t want to write any more.  I felt guilty when I didn’t blog enough, I felt bad when I didn’t have anything interesting to say and I blogged about daily life anyway, and most days writing just seemed too hard.

I went several months without blogging.  Life was good again.  I didn’t feel the need to document every movement I and my family made.  We just LIVED.  I stopped taking as many pictures and lived through moments instead of seeming them through a tiny lens.  It was wondrous.

It was also very, very weird.  I’ve been blogging since before there was blogging.  I’ve had a diary, journal, notebook, scrap of paper or something in my hands since I was a little girl.  I noticed an uptick in Facebook and twitter posts.  Then I started writing longer notes in my head that I never posted because they were too long for Facebook. I started writing in a paper journal again, only to realize that my hands are no longer up to that task. So I started searching for an app for journalling on my computer, but that wasn’t enough.  I wanted input on my writing.

Which lead me back to blogging.  So welcome back to the new Life According to Lisa. 🙂


I am a wife, mother, all around volunteer, and organizer of all that is around me. No, really, it is pathological, I can't help it. If you need help, you ask me, I help. I have a few chronic illnesses that try their hardest to slow me down, but my brain is the Energizer Bunny of brains and it demands that I try to do everything and try new things and keep going all the time. So here I am, blogging about it all.
