Gee when I started this blog my intention was to blog every day!
Using this format as a way to organize my thoughts and kick-start my dream to write!
And I mean really write :)

And i did in the beginning.
I purposely kept the blog clean. Free from pictures, fancy type, clutter!

Every day I posted something and then it was every other day, then twice a week and now it seems to be once a week MAYBE lol

Somewhere along the way the purpose of this blog got sidetracked and I started to fret about readers, the design, comments or the lack there of, feedbacks
and this led me on a quest to make my blog better so that I would have more readers, comments and followers so forth.

I joined a fabulous community - Blogfrog and got sidetracked with commenting there and visiting all those wonderful blogs and commenting everywhere. I love stomping all through people's blogs and commenting.. can't help my self it is addictive :)

But still very little visits or comments to my space- felt depressed

And then I did the #31 DBB challenge... okay started but had to give up because it was summer and honestly it was overwhelming to me. Needing to attention my children had to take precedent over this blog.

It also didn't help that all of a sudden I couldn't get the words out of my brain.
AND my beloved hubbie the muse of this blog was pissing me off so royally that even my good words were not working. That passed though Phew!

Well school is back in session and
I pledged to discipline myself with my blogtrotting and as Nike says JUST DO IT :)

So with a renewed desire I am back to my blogging because though I don't have many comments I realized that I do have some friends who do check in on me and comment from time to time. So I will fret no more and continue to enjoy sharing what i have learned and am learning.

So what have you been up to?
Have you been melting down like me?
Or have you been enjoying life and blogging as you should?


  1. I can totally relate! Its so hard to balance hopping around to different blogs, writing, and family time. It's also frustrating when the comments are so sporadic. At one point I was so consumed by my comments that I was afraid to write about certain things because I didn't want to offend the few people who actually followed me. But now I just write for me and the comments have actually started to increase... WOO HOO!

  2. It's tough to manage blogging..and
    I think I am going to start doing more of the wordless wednesday and music monday posts to fill in the gaps...I may even preset some just to get a break once in a while. I don't post everyday, but i feel if i don't keep up the momentum I will quit :(

  3. And here? You're HERE too??? How did I not know this before today?

  4. Gayle I responded to your comment on my site
    I know you mentioned the comments issues on this post. Like I say in my reply, try a test comment to see what I mean.
    hope life is good :)

  5. never fun to focus on the numbers. Blogs are meant to me fun :) I have been getting overwhelmed with life too. I always enjoy your perspective.
