Good Bye, Farewell! Happy Aproning!

Well Apron Goddesses, I can not tell a lie. I can not find the time to keep posting on The Apron Goddesses with my busy life schedule.

While I won't be posting any new material, I will leave the blog up for folks to find aprons made by all the fabulous hand made, sewn in the USA, women owned businesses who I want to support. If an apron maker wants to request an ad with a link, I'd be happy to post. Just send an email with your request. (I am amazed at how many visits The Apron Goddesses garnishes even with very limited posting...)

The biggest overall time constraint for me has been my need to market my newly published children's book called Bingo's Big Adventure and make time for writing the next book in the series. Reviews for Bingo's Big Adventure have been very positive and can be viewed HERE on Amazon.

I am running a book promotion at the Bingo's Big Adventure site too.

Books are discounted through purchase on Paypal. Hardback copies are $2 dollars off cover price at $13.99 and softbacks are $1 dollar off cover price at $7.99. Your purchase supports a women owned business right here in the US. Buy a book for your kids, grand kids or as gifts for the holidays! I will personally sign any books ordered and customize as requested.

Since I find my self trying to balance on that narrow fence that life has provided me.... I thought Bingo's balancing act was an appropriate allusion to my current place in life.


Part of balancing is knowing just when to jump off without hurting one's self....

So that's the end of my tail...

I hear you on trying to balance everything!! I don't know how everyone post everyday and still gets other things done!! Love your blog!!

Adios darling!

I so understand your reasoning ...I am hearing more and more of this on many popular blogs. It is so very time consuming and often takes us away from the reason we began to blog in the first place! Go enjoy your life and I wish you much luck.

your friend,

Julie, I am so proud of you and your accomplishments .... you are such a wonderful writer and story teller! As much as I and all of the rest will miss you, I wish you great continued success. You definitely are going in the right direction and you will be able to bring continued smiles and joy to an even larger audience. Kudos to you; you are the best. You will be missed but I am very, very happy for you! God bless! Corline

It is always good to hear that an "ending" is really a new beginning somewhere else! Good luck and thanks for your past efforts

I think another book in the series should be "Julia's Big Adventure"! I also will miss the news on TAG, but I know you are doing the right thing for you at this time. I love the book, and will be ordering a few more since I forgot to get one for myself!
best to you in the future, xxooxx

Becky said...

Awww, I so understand. I too wonder how folks blog every day and have time to do other things!

I appreciate all you have done to promote aprons and the ladies who make them (including me!)

I pray that you will always have a wonderful life. Keep in mind that we'll be around if you have time to write again or to pop in to see what we are doing on our blogs!

Take care!

I'll miss stopping by TAG but best of luck with your wonderful Bingo Tales!! We (the kids and I)love your first book and know that the ones to follow will be just as much fun! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of TAG for a bit. Keep in touch! :)

I only just discovered your blog in time to say farewell. Thank you for leaving lots for me to read and check out. Best wishes in all your ventures. - WG

Laurie K said...

Best wishes on your new adventure, Julia! I'll never know how you found time to do all this BEFORE your new adventure started... (I blogged for about a week once, when I realized I'd never have enough time to do it all!) Have fun!

Valerie said...

I wish you many blessings on this adventure. I hope you keep your blog up so we can visit from time to time.

I understand what you mean by balancing things.
Bingo is just far too cute.

Kristina said...

It feels like I just now found you! Ok, it was months and months ago, but still! You'll be missed. Good luck with your books!
