To Blog or Not to the Blog…That is the question…
Hello there! It’s been sometime since I’ve said that on here! Well not sure if you noticed, but I didn’t post in February at all. It’s now a little past mid-March and I’m getting around to writing this. It’s been six weeks since I’ve even come to my little slice of the internet world, and it was a little test for me.
These days, blogging has become increasingly ubiquitous. It seems that whoever I find has a blog or some sort of personal space that they call their own. Well, if everyone has a little piece of the internet, then why would mine be any more special? The more I thought about this, the more discouraged I got about having or writing a blog. Not to mention the amount of time it takes to keep a blog, and keep up with it. Not an easy task staying on top of it 24/7, especially being almost 7 months pregnant, with a 16-month old, and running a small biz! Every time I would even consider blogging, ten other things got prioritized. But truth be told, these last three weeks, I keep getting urge to come back and write. I actually miss my little space! It was a place for me to just be me and write my thoughts! And let’s face it, a lot of monumental things have gotten documented for me here so I definitely am attached, and therefore letting go has not been easy.
Anyway, all this rambling is leading me to the decision that I’m definitely going to keep blogging. I love it too much to worry about how others are doing it. This is my space and it shouldn’t be about how others do theirs or a compare/contrast contest. I just want it to be me. Quirky ol’ me. No promises to post a lot because I do have so much on my plate, but I figure if I can post once a week, that should be a good enough goal! Or so I hope! Maybe I’ll have to re-think that when my little guy shows up at the end of May but til’ then, I’m gonna be all on here once again! =)
Oh, and if you’re wondering what I’ve been doing these past six weeks…just been soaking in a ton of time with this girl before I have two!
I too always wonder why I am blogging and If my blog will ever be successful. But then I realized it doesn't really matter to me if it becomes popular. It's a space just for me and that's all that matters! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy, hopefully after baby number two you'll still have time for your little slice of the internet.
I only posted once in February! — It is hard not to be too critical of ourselves… especially when we have big dreams and goals for our online spaces. Be sure to give yourself grace too! <3
Definitely keep blogging! Everyone and their sister might have a blog but the amazing thing is that even if every person in the world had a blog no two people in the world have the same voice. Just be YOU and you'll find your own voice, your own message, and that how you'll find success.
