I've been blogging for a long time. I started in 2001 blogging about my pregnancy at a website called Xanga. My son will be 18 in December! I've done Mommy blogs, weight loss blogs, homeschool blogs...I've always loved creating things on the Internet.
I am still very much into creating inserts, but mostly for myself these days. I have never sold my inserts because I didn't want my time to be dictated to me by a shop, however, I did expect some sort of interaction between myself and my readers and that has never really been there, so I am moving on towards other things. I too am guilty of downloading freebies without even a "good job" or "thanks," so I understand how it happens.
I probably will never leave the blogging world completely. This blog will remain with all the free inserts I have made over the years. If I don't renew my domain in March, the url will change to plannerfun.blogspot.com.
