Behind..

I feel so behind in the blog world. I am behind on my reading and searching of new and insightful blogs. I can't really explain my slump...or how I feel. I can tell you that I am not really sure where my blogging is going from here. So many blogs have been talking about getting "caught up" in blogging, trying to respond to all of the comments and form connections with new, amazing people. I try my best to reply to my followers {by going to their blog and commenting, but many times my browser doesn't like your comment feed or vice versa, and then I can't leave comments- which makes me frustrated and I give up}. But, one thing I am sure of, is that blogging can't/won't take away from the things I need in my life. Like a clean house, a happy husband, a phone call from someone important, and happy fur children. Lets also not forget my job (a girls gotta eat) and my gym time. I am exhausted and haven't found the time or energy to think of amazing and thoughtful things to blog about. Trust me, I have things to say- but let's be honest. The internet is a HUGE place..full of billions of people. Those that know you, those who don't, those that judge you, those that love you. Can you really and truly put yourself out there? Probably not without hurting some people in the process or it coming back to bite you in the proverbial ass. We all deal with mean people, trying circumstances and have really bad days...so I think that is what I am trying to figure out. What I want to say and how I want to say it. I am a very honest person- sometimes to a fault so rest assured I will try my best to always have an honest place to write my words. Hang in there with me. I think we are on the road to figuring it out.

I know just what you mean, and am in a similar place with my blog. I'm not sure if I should continue or just close the chapter. Sometimes the blogging world is like a big ol' popularity contest and I find my insecurities coming out...I mean, I'm done high school for a reason, right? Also, posting is though because you want to be insightful and meaningful without stepping on anyone.

*sigh* Sometimes it's all just really overwhelming to think about. I'm right there with ya...

To paraphrase a popular saying... "Write like nobody's watching."

If writing is something you really want/need to do, do it. If it's not really fit for public consumption, and you want to be REALLY real, journal privately.

Or... .write a book. :) You are such a talented writer with a good sense of humor and natural ability, there are many ways so shine at it, without getting sucked into the blogularity contest. (I made that up myself.) :)

i just joined the blogosphere a few months ago... and i don't see it as another chore on my list to do in my very busy life :) instead, it's a [very public] outlet. i can understand where you're coming from when you ask if we can really put ourselves out there - but to me, it's also a vessel to connect with people of like minds and interests that i wouldn't normally have the pleasure of meeting or encountering, whatsoever. technology; i like to embrace it for the good and let go of the negative :) in any case, i look forward to following your blog when ever you do find time to post.

btw, you have a pleasant blog here. been enjoying going through it. i appreciate how it's personal without all the "frills" and "sponsors" i seem to come upon too often! i hope we can connect, sarah!

psst... it's not a food, fashion/beauty, thrifting, travel, photography, books/film or any just-one-thing-blog. it's random, lacks direction - but nonetheless, mirror images the pieces of me and helps document my interests and phases i go through :) come by!
