Misty's back. Tell a friend.


I got an email this week that my domain was set to expire. I had to decide if I really wanted to spend the money to keep Handbags + Handguns going when I haven't blogged in over three months. I've been struggling on a weekly basis, to post or not to post. I want to. I really do. I just don't have the time or patience for it. I feel like the blog world has gone a little crazy with stats, sponsored posts and lessons in how to blog properly. I am not trying to make a living here. I have a day job that pays the bills and provides my family with benefits. If this blog makes me a little extra income, great. If it doesn't, that's fine too. I'm here to share, to vent and to have fun. Maybe I'll blog once a week. Maybe I'll blog once a month. Who knows what the future holds here, but I do miss this place. So I renewed.

Welcome back, Misty! I'm the same way with my blog. I post when I can, which isn't very often lately. I just wanted you to know I LIVE for your awards show fashion posts!! Those are the highlights of my week! I share them with my family and friends who enjoy them as well. I'll look forward to any and all posts from you. Enjoy your weekend! :)

Awesome. Sometimes all you need is a break and an adjustment of how often you want to do thing.

6 years...that's the last time I have blogged! I am re-familiarizing myself with the whole process at the time...well, because I've missed it. I feel the same way, I blog for the heck of it. Not for all the attachments that can come along with it.

I'm glad you decided to stay! It feels like all of my blog friends are dropping off the map. I'm right there with you-I blog for me, not for stats or anything else. I don't always do it as often as I'd like, but I'm grateful for the connections I've made from it. I don't think I can give it up entirely. I may not always check in, but I am glad you're still here.
