Happy New Year 2018

Happy 2018!  I hope the new year finds you happy, healthy, and feeling positive about the future.

I'm so happy to be back to regularly publishing new posts after taking a very long break. When I started The Pin Junkie in 2012, I jumped all in and soon experienced blogger burnout. I had absolutely no idea how much work went into creating and maintaining a blog. Going forward, I hope I can do a better job of maintaining a healthy blog / life balance! 

In addition to some serious burnout, my finances were feeling a bit drained too. I have a kid in college, our home needed several big repairs, and we decided to do a kitchen remodel. I decided to go back to work which left very little time for Pinterest projects and blogging. (I know there are people out there who make real incomes with their blogs.  I unfortunately do not!)

During my absence from blogging, I really missed all the talented, crafty, and clever people I met online. As a way to stay connected, I kept up with the weekly Pin Junkie parties on Thursdays and have really enjoyed seeing what everyone has been up to.  Thank you for consistently stopping by each week to share your talent and your projects!

So what's happened since I've been gone?
  • Wow! Pinterest has changed.  I hope to write about all the changes soon.
  • The blog got a makeover.  Hope you like the new layout!
  • Our kitchen was remodeled. I'll be posting about that too.
  • Pin Junkie Jr. will be graduating college this spring. OMG! Where has the time gone!
  • Mr. Pin Junkie has a new job and there may be a move in our future! (Sigh . . . kinda wish we hadn't remolded the kitchen now!)
Wishing you all the best in 2018!

Happy New Year 2018
