******LOTS OF RAMBLING AND VENTING BELOW*******
So… it’s Monday afternoon, and after a very busy weekend, I’m just getting to blogging. And I’m still trying to figure it all out.
You see… back when I had my full-time job, I had time to blog and brainstorm and leave tons of comments on all the blogs I love.
I would be logged on twitter all day long and tweet with all my blogging buddies.
The funny thing is I had more time to blog at work, than I do at home…
Oh, and the only reason I feel comfortable saying that is cause I’m not at that job any more.
My full-time job is turning one year old in a couple weeks and consumes one hundred percent of my time. Not that I’m complaining… I love being with her, around her, beside her, anywhere with her. She’s the best!
But… now that she’s mobile, I’m constantly making sure she doesn’t get into anything silly.
In fact… right now, as I type this… she just pulled out a stack of all my favorite decorating magazines… she’s actually flipping through the pages like she’s reading it.
Ope… never mind… she’s ripping the pages out… be right back…
Phew… Crisis resolved… moving on…
I blog for lots of reasons. I blog because its an outlet for me. I blog because I want readers to know how much I love being a mom. I blog because I want to help. I’m an RD, with a butt load of knowledge I can share. I blog because I want readers to know that you don’t have be on some crazy diet to reach a healthy weight.
But… I think I can speak for other bloggers when that question pops in our head…
Do people really like my blog? If my blog went away tomorrow would they miss it.
Are people only reading my blog because I commented on theirs?
Is my blog boring? Am I a good writer?
Those questions pop in my head every few weeks… then I get my blogging mojo back for a couple weeks… then I feel insecure again…. and so the cycle repeats itself…
Then that day comes… we read a blog post that has that title…. “I got a book deal!”
Then we sit, and wonder… “could that ever happen to me?”
I guess we’ll never know unless we go after it.
I guess what I really want to say is that I’m really glad you’re here 🙂
Thank you for reading and sticking around!
And thanks for your patience as I continue to try to figure this whole blogging world out 🙂
Now it’s time for questions….
If you’re a blogger… do any of the above questions pop in your head?
If so… how do you feel about it?
Do you ever get blogger insecurity?
This is a selfish question for me… Is there anything you would like to see more of on my blog? This blog is for me AND you 🙂
