The winding down of a blog

1.23.2017

Greetings, from the world's worst blogger!

I hate to admit it, but my blog is winding down, folks.

While I'll still get a kick to write every so often, mostly it's the dreaded task that I can't make myself finish even begin. Life is just busier and the blog has taken a back seat.

I blame having teenagers!

I've really struggled throwing in the towel. For one, reading past entries makes me so glad I took the time to write down the funny and cute and awkward life happenings that go on around here and I'll miss this method of recording them, and for two, it's such a great way to scrapbook (by printing your blog) without having to actually scrapbook, haha. Again, too busy!

More than feelings of sadness though, I feel relief. It really is a weight lifted off me to give this up in the season I'm in. And I'm really proud of myself for sticking to it for so long. Six and a half years... if nothing else, that's a LOT of outfit pictures ;)

Thanks for hanging out with me in this space.
Peace out ;)

P.S. You can still find me on instagram, and very rarely on twitter and snapchat. Just search for jodalamode.

  1. Say it ain't so - Jo !! - but in reality, I'm so proud of you for 6 years of amazing "captures" both in life and fashion. Your blog will be missed. So glad I have you personally- always. Love you.

  2. Sad face....�� I'll miss your cute outfit posts but I already went over to Instagram to follow you there...maybe throw an outfit or two on there for old time's sake once in awhile? ��

  4. I'm so sorry to hear this. I check out your blog every week, but I don't do Instagram. I had a blog when my kids were younger and my husband was in culinary school, and I wish I would have kept it up...just for the memories.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment and let me know you'll miss my blog, that's so sweet to hear. I hope I won't regret stopping for now - maybe I'll pick it up again later but for the season I'm in now I know it's right. Take care!

  5. Hi Jodi,

    Oh my goodness, I'm so sad to hear but totally understand. I have never even met you but I feel like you are a friend:-) I started following your blog a few years ago. I originally found it through WIWW. As a new stay at home mom I was trying to figure out what to wear,besides pjs! I identified with your style and then began to check your blog once a week. I enjoyed your posts about family and faith and you are just so darn funny:-) I thought I could befriends in real life. I live in Michigan but my dear sis in law lives in Bend. We have been to visit your lovely state several times, Portland, Bend, up and down the coast. Love it! I don't know maybe that made me identify with you too. Anyway I will miss your outfit posts. Best wishes to you and your family! Annie

    1. Thank you, Annie! Best compliment!! I know exactly what you're talking about too - I've felt that way about a couple of bloggers I've followed too. I'm sure we would have been friends! Maybe we can be instagram friends instead? Send me a note and I'd love to follow you :)
