I've been struggling with the decision for weeks. Not the decision to start a new site, that I've been sure of for awhile. Sure, I can make An American Girl more general and less Vienna-focused all the time, but the truth is that I can't send this blog out far and wide because there are many people who don't know, who I don't want to know, about Vienna yet. So, I can't post this on Facebook or send out without worrying about who's going to find it.
I have been struggling with the decision about what to do with An American Girl. I thought maybe that I could just have two blogs. Yea. That's not going to happen. Then I thought that I should at least keep this going while getting the other up and running. Unfortunately, I began to feel so overwhelmed and a little guilty about the whole thing that I wasn't working on either!
Just the other day I thought, you know what, this is supposed to be FUN. Not a burden. And in that moment I knew. An American Girl is going to take a break for awhile, at least from this blog. This is not to say that I won't bring it back when we get closer to our move to Vienna. I might just do that. But in the meantime, I'm taking a different approach.
I can't share the site details with you yet, but if you check back in a couple weeks or so, I'll post the link. And for those of you with whom I've connected via your blogs, I'll send along the new site as soon as I can. For those of you who simply pop by to read An American Girl every now and again, I thank you ever so much for following along and do hope I can bring you along to my new virtual playland when the time comes.
Danke shoen & Auf Wiedersehen
An American Girl
