3.) What do you find most challenging about blogging?
The timing of this prompt is quite ironic; I've been seriously playing around with the idea of shutting this blog down (or just limiting my posts).
I just haven't been feeling "it" much anymore. What "it" is, I'm not really sure.
It's not that I want to be the #1 blog of all blogs, because I don't. I really don't. I have no desire to go to blogging conferences or do giveaways or whatever is needed to become a top blogger. But I do want something... right? I mean if I didn't want something out of this, why not just stick with the private blog I have? Why open myself up to anyone and everyone if I didn't care about any of it?
I love taking and sharing pictures of my Lovie. I love talking about her. If it weren't for her, this blog wouldn't exist. She is the reason I am Finally Mom after all.
But it gets old sharing photos and stories with strangers and not getting much of anything in return... and I know a big part of that is my fault for trying to blog with a shit computer (meaning I was blogging and reading tons of blogs but unable to comment on their blogs because my computer would shut down). But I've got a new computer now and am trying hard to visit and post elsewhere... but I still feel like it's not helping. I still feel like I'm just not feeling "it" much anymore.
I like this blog, but it's just a blog. It's just something to pass time when I'm at work. I rarely even think of this blog on the weekends, and I don't want to.
So what gives? If I feel like this blog is just something to pass the time, then why do I feel so blah about it?
I guess we all want to be heard. Maybe that's it. Maybe it's that I've gone most of my life on the sidelines and now that I'm ready and able to actually get out there and play, it's hard when there's nobody to play with.
