In the land of the internet, four years is an eternity. Many blogs come and go before they reach their fourth birthday, so when I realized last August that I’d been writing at Wandering Off for four years, I was pretty pleased.
Since 2009, I have written over 400 posts and shared 700-800 photos. That’s a fair amount of information, not to mention an investment of time, thought, and – yes, on a couple of occasions – tears.
Although I still love to travel and write, I’ve decided that this blog has run its course.
My daughter is getting older. She has after-school activities, sports, and homework. I have embarked on a freelance writing career and do some volunteer work here and there. Like most parents, I struggle to find enough time to do everything that needs to be done. Something had to give, and I decided that “something” would be the blog.
This is certainly not the end of my traveling-and-writing days. In fact, I have already started another (very simple) website, which includes a portfolio of my work and occasional blog posts. And of course, you can still find me sharing tidbits from our family’s travels on Twitter, Facebook, and Google +.
Although I won’t be writing new posts on Wandering Off, the blog will continue to live here at wanderingoff.com. There is just too much information here to delete it all on a whim. I hope that it will continue to be a resource for those wanting to travel with their kids.
Thank you so much for reading, commenting, and sharing. I truly do appreciate it.
