Once-A-Month Blogger

Thank you to everyone who linked up to my party --It was so fun! I want to congratulate everyone who is a Featured Guest from the link party. If you are featured here, you are invited to scroll down to the bottom of this blog (clear to the bottom) and grab my “Featured Guest” button to post on your blog!

Featured guests include:

Marcia at In Stillness and Simplicity

Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane

Diane at 1 Card Creator

Debbie at Debbie Dabble

Daniella at Daniella Hayes

Brooke at Spruce Your Nest

Shannon at Rusty and Redone

Roselle at Seaside Rose Creations

Cindy at Crimson Heart Studios


So many of you know that my spiritual life is very important to me. As I said in my blogging books, blogging should be PART of life, but never a substitute for it. So, what am I going to do? I am seeking “balance.” I am going to become a “Once-a-Month” blogger.

As much as I love having the Link Party, I will have to put it on hold for now.

I will create a regular post on the 1st of each month, so I hope you’ll come by for a visit. My free seminars and tutorials will continue to be posted here and are readily available to anyone who needs them. I am not available for personal blogging questions as my work has to take precedence. I also do graphic design and am available to create blog headers and buttons.

Last night, my book "Angels at My Door" hit Number 3 on Amazon's Bestseller List! I'm so excited!

I am on Facebook and if you would like to connect with me, just click HERE.

Oh, pooh! Well, we will miss you.

No wonder you made #3 my friend. You are one wonderful gal & deserve all the joys & successes one can have.

My best to you & Ralph for a beautiful weekend.

Jill said...

Oh dear. How I will miss reading your blog. But...I do understand. Bless your heart.

Cindy, you know how much I believe in being Spirit-led in everything we do, so I understand your decision...HOWEVER, that doesn't mean I have to like it. :( Without you this place will not be the same, not for me anyway. I pray that God blesses every door that I KNOW He is opening up for you. Great opportunities ahead for you, my friend.
And if you are led to post frequently again, I'll be the first one rushing over.
Love and blessings.

I often wonder how people have the time to blog daily (or almost daily) and have come to the conclusion that they are all just much more organised than I am :))
I look forward to seeing you again on a monthly basis.

Marilou of Lulus Lovlies and Heartful Creations said...

We will miss you Cindy but surely understand, I haven't been blogging as much lately or leaving comments as there is just not enough hours in a day! Hugs my friend. Marilou

Char said...

Hi Cindy,
I can totally understand what you mean. I have been a terrible blogger for many months now, grabbing a minute here and there.
My MIL moved back to CO, so now I have so much more time. I hope you find what you are looking for in your life, but please don't be a stranger. I will hook up with you on facebook too,

Marti said...

I will look forward to your monthly blog. We all must have balance in our lives.

Bliss said...

You are a wise woman.

I will really miss your posts, Cindy, but I can totally understand! Finding a balance in life can be oh so challenging, sounds like you need a well deserved break. And bravo on your success at Amazon, I knew you would be a huge hit!

Cindy F. Adkins said...

I'll miss you, but I totally understand. I look forward to your once a month posts! You're wise to know when it's time to step back and seek balance. In my short time blogging, I've seen how it can take up a huge amount of time if we let it. Life is all about balance. I'll be following you on facebook,too.
Love, Cindy

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Cindy,

You will be missed but understand.
Sending love & hugs and hope to catch up when you are able.

Parcelling out your time is difficult, and you want to give attention to each thing, your decision sounds reasonable although you'll be missed. See you next time, all the best and congrats!

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Totally understand balance my friend! You do what you need to do and know that we will be here for you when you can blog! Have a great weekend!

Just me said...

Be well my friend.
We all need a blogging break from time to time. I've been hiding from my computer all together for a little while now. Just hopping around today trying to catch up on a few friends.
Congrat's on hitting #3 with Angels at My Door!
I'll look forward to your monthly posts.

NanaDiana said...

Oh Cindy! I SOOOO understand. God bless you, sweet woman, for all you have done for so many of us. I will be right here checking in the first of each month to see what you have been up to..and you know that I will be holding you up in prayer. Congrats on Angels At My Door. Only Number 3? "Come-mon" as SweetCheeks would say!

Love to you my dear friend. xo Diana

Sush said...

Congrats on the #3.....'Movin' on Up'! Throughly understand why your're cutting back. I find myself not able to get on as much as I'd like. So is 'liking' you on FB gonna be a friend connect? I'm not really FB aware and am always commenting on the wrong place so I am trying to figure this out!
Happy Mardi Gras...

2amscrapper said...

Congrats on your success at Amazon. I totally understand your need for balance. I've been struggling with that for two years and have changed my word to "time" hoping that if I find time for everything important in my life, then I'll have balance. I'll look forward to your monthly blog posts.!

Anonymous said...

Cindy, I know you know that i understand totally, you need to do this for your own sanity and to enjoy your blogging more. It becomes less enjoyable when there is so much to fit into each day .... you will be tempted to post more ( i know hehe, i am tempted ) but you must listen to your body and be good to your soul and post when you want to ..... and we will enjoy your posts more than ever as we will have missed you.
hugs June xxxxx

Linda said...

Hi Cindy,

Congrats on Angels at my Door. i am thrilled because you featured my story in that book! Thanks again for all you do!


Starr said...

Dear, precious Cindy, my heart hurts a bit and I'm selfishly brought to tears. You are ever in my prayers. Your books have given me so much more than you intended, thank you for enriching my life and thank you for each little note, I will treasure them.
I'll be seeing you,
Much love,

Daniella said...

Thank you so much for picking me to be a featured blogger! I am so grateful!!

Roselle said...

Thanks for the're the best.
Totally get the once/month blogging. Something has to give. You are such a busy woman. We will look forward to your monthly posts. Please don't be a stranger and keep visiting us!!
CONGRATS on your books!!! So proud of you!

myric andreasen said...

Congratulations on your book Angels at My Door for hitting the Number 3 on bestseller list! A lot of us will miss you since you will be blogging once a month only, but I think that is for the best right?

Thank you for visiting me. It really meant so much. I haven't blogging much lately because of the situation I had, and hubby and I caught flu. We are in bed for a week or more now. I can't wait to go back to blogging again.


Faerie Moon Creations said...

I TOTALLY hear you, Cindy. I've been trying so hard to seek more balance, too. And I still don't have it right yet. Am constantly trying to find the time to create art, create jewelry, blog, promote, etc etc. You do what is really best for you, Cindy. And we'll still all be here for you!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Congrats once again, you did such great job here and I will surely miss your posting!!!!

Elaine said...

Gaby Bee said...

Congratulations on your book success, Cindy.
I'll look forward to your monthly blog posts!


Celestina Marie said...

Hi Cindy,
I so understand this too well. Balance is the key to everything and when the weight tilts, things go off and something or someone suffers.
I will so miss you, but I applaud your stand on taking charge and putting what is very important first.
See you again soon.
Love to you, Celestina Marie

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Cindy,
Forgot to add how excited I am for you and your books. Taking #3 on this one is awesome. Congrats to you and continued success my friend.
XO Celestina Marie

Lynne Moncrieff said...

I applaud you as it is not so easy to step back from blogging especially when it is so enjoyable but sometimes, the downside, it can swap us.
Be well.

Hello my Friend

suziqu's thread works said...

Dear Cindy
I am so proud of you taking this leap!
There is nothing more important than seeking spiritual pursuits.
You are always an angel at my door and I am so blessed already that you found me and also for appreciating my artwork enough to publish it several times on your blog.
You have achieved greatly but the best achievement is peace of mind, body and spirit.
I am not amazed at all with your successes and they will continue for you.
Sending you heaps of love and support,
Big hugs,
From one soul seeker to another,
Suzy xoxox
