“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” -Marilyn Monroe

This quote sums up what I’m feeling right now.  Sweet Phenomena is a good thing.  I’m proud of what I’ve created.

That said, I feel like it’s not really where I want it to be.  I feel like it’s started to fall apart.

I know I’ve mentioned before that I tend to throw myself into things backwards:  I get excited, start something, then learn along the way, and polish it.

Someone at Blissdom mentioned that there was nothing wrong with that because otherwise, I might talk myself out of doing new stuff.  Yep, that’s what I’m going to tell myself.

I started Sweet Phenomena as a way to document our homeschooling life.  Well, I never thought I’d still be homeschooling.  And, I don’t create my own curriculum and resources, so it’s difficult to just blog exclusively about homeschooling.

Every once in a while I have a moment of homeschool blogging genius, but it’s not something I’m passionate enough about to write exclusively about it.

Or wait, no that’s a lie.  It’s too broad.  I feel I need to narrow my focus.

I started doing reviews and giveaways and thought that would be fun.  Get free stuff?  Sure.  Give stuff away to my awesome readers?  Sure.

Don’t get me wrong, I love doing giveaways for you guys.  I still plan to offer them from time to time.

I still plan to do reviews.  One: I’m a member of The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew for the remainder of 2012.  They’re reworking things over there a bit, and I’m really looking forward to making that a quality part of Sweet Phenomena.

Two: there are items out there that I think work well with homeschooling.  I will, however, be more selective about what I review.  I’m doing too many right now and it’s cutting out all the creativity and fun.  That’s not what I want.

It’s time for Sweet Phenomena to fall together into something better.  But what’s better?  Find out tomorrow!
