A blogger, that is.
That is the question all bloggers face at some point during their blogging experience.
It seems that life just doesn’t realize we must have time to blog! Right? *wink*
I could give you a laundry list of reasons that I have not blogged in an ENTIRE WEEK. I could go on and on with all of the things that kept me from Not Me! Monday, Tackle it Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, my You Capture!post, and all of the other posts I have talked with myself about. (Am I the only blogger who has conversations with herself about great post ideas?)
I could, but I won’t. Two words will do it- seven children. LOL Okay, I could add one more word. Husband. LOL!
Some days (or weeks) get so full of schoolwork, library time, gymnastics practice, cheerleading practice, cleaning, cooking, beating back the laundry monster, errands and the all-important family time that we just don’t even get a chance to sit down in front of our computers. Oops, guess I did sneak in a little bit of my “laundry list”. lol
I found myself questioning my blogging this week. Do I want to continue blogging? Yes! I love to write. I miss the wonderful people I have gotten to know is this community of bloggers. Should I just delete my blog and stop funneling time and energy into it? No. It is a big outlet of thoughts and I really enjoy reading and commenting on other blogs. I have been gone a week now. Is anyone still reading my blog? Maybe, maybe not. We’ll see. 🙂
I got to that point this week where I wondered if I truly have the time to give to blogging. A blog cannot be ignored for long. You can try, but then it all seems to build up on you. That is when blogging starts to weigh heavily on you. That is when it seems like much more work than fun. That is when you force yourself to open that computer, get online and write. Once you write a little the weight gets lighter. A good post or two and you are back in business. You are refreshed and ready to tackle your blog backup. Until the next time you get so stinking busy that you don’t go online for days and the whole blog-as-heavy-as-the-world thing weighs you down.
So, my camera is full of great pictures, my notebook has lots of notes of post ideas, my laundry room is only somewhat recognizable, and I am makinga little bit of time to blog.
The weight is already lifting.
Shalom my friends,
