It’s been nearly
two three months since Melissa shared that we would be taking a break. I wish we could say that we’re back with better posts and more stories from “life in the nitty gritty.” But that’s not real life right now.
Obviously we aren’t gone for good since the site is still up, but we’re still not sure what will happen here.
Neither one of us are okay with leaving it so open ended, though, and we don’t think it’s fair to our faithful readers to just skip out.
This is what we know right now:
We need a break from a “schedule.”
Both of us are worn from life these days, and so are our other Sisters, Faith and Michal. We may post regularly for a while and then stop. Or we may not post for a while and then post regularly. But these expectations have been hurting our posts and our faithfulness to writing. We will still be around, though.
We love this space.
This is what we keep going back to: we love our readers. We love encouraging other moms. We love this space. But we also need to figure out what that needs to look like. Early on, we shared our space. Facebook will still be like that: Melissa and I both will post on our page at times. However, Twitter will not be a shared space anymore. I’ve been using my personal Twitter account, @smith_jeniffer, fairly regularly and had stopped getting on @sistersncloth much. We decided that it would be better for us to use our own accounts from now on, with me keeping @smith_jeniffer and Melissa using @sistersncloth. Of course, I’m mostly on Instagram these days. If you don’t follow me already, my username is @smith_jeniffer.
Finally, we want to be clear.
While we hate to leave this blog, we both realize that it may be exactly what we need to do. If that happens, we’ll both still be around the Web, and we’ll most likely keep our Facebook page up and running. We will let you know before we close down shop, so to speak.
Again, we love you guys. We have loved getting to meet each of you, and we’re still amazed that some of you have stuck around. Thank you for making this blog what it is and what it will be.
