This blog is in need of a revamp. So many things have changed since I started writing this blog and I feel it has become this anticlimactic unending story with little foundation on which to build. For a good story you need a background, key players, a climax and an end. Blogs are weird in that they don't really have the ending part. I have been going back and reading some of the very first writings on this blog and WOW is all I can say. Where we started was crazy and where we are now is both cool and disapointing.
My guess is very few have been here from the very begining. Nor do you really know our (as in Steady and my) stories. I write here as if everyone already has a basic understanding of the background story. That is another strange thing about blogs. Sometimes it can feel like you are jumping in on a trilogy in the middle of the second movie and nothing really makes much sense. So I will be in the process of rethinking and revamping this blog. In my post a few days ago about where the readers have gone it took me all of about 3 comments to whole heartedly agree with Karen and Sprinklerbandit that, this blog, for me, right now, just isn't that high on the priority list. I just don't have the time and energy to put in the effort it takes to make this blog really great. I don't like that because I love this blog. I love the blogs that I read. I love the people and connections I have because of this blog. So the idea of it dying out scares me. I am afraid that if I let it slip at some point it may slip away all together. I don't want that to happen. I guess I am so surprised I even stuck with this for a year not to mention 4. It would not be surprised at all if it ended up just one of those things I did one time that was cool while it lasted.
So the revamp is my attempt to not let this blog slowly die with my increasingly packed full world. I have some ideas in the works and one of them involves a cute little kid and her cute haflinger adding guest blogs about their journey together. And few background posts bringing those new to Slow and Steady Wins the Race up to speed with who we are where we came from and where we are going.
I most of all love my few very faithful readers! You all do not go over looked! I am thankful you keep coming back for more. I feel that you are all interested and invested parties in my journey and have been moral support and advisors along the way. I know it may be weird to feel so connected to many of you whom I've never met (some I have met and are super cool) but truth is that even if I can't explain it you really do mean a lot to me. So here is to the next phase in this crazy crazy thing I call my life!
