There, I said it!

Alright, aside from the fact my computer repulses me, there are a few other reasons I've struggled with blogging. (My computer repulses me because I very literally spend 8 hours on it and when I get home I would rather stare into the sunlight than get back on the computer).

*Real quick, my big girl job is going great so far. I love being busy at work, I just wish I could learn to balance*

Okay, back to my original thought, why I've struggled with blogging lately.
1) I don't feel like what I have to say is important enough to blog about. 
I don't know when this shift of my thoughts and feelings being important to where I'm at now. I feel like these thoughts are so personal, that no one will relate. Or sometimes I don't think I have much of an opinion about ANYTHING! Seriously.

There are other times when I look at other peoples' blogs and say, "why do they think I care what they ate for breakfast, or what they wore, or how cute their kids are, or how blah blah blah blah." But you know what, it is important to someone. Moving on...

2) I feel small in the blogosphere. 
There is a certain bout of confidence that comes with blogging, and then there are certain insecurities. This ties back in with #1, but mostly it's just that I compare myself to others WAY too much.

I'm lazy. I've been lazy. I've been uninspired to do the necessary amount of work blogging requires.

There, I said it! I suck. But I can say with the most sincerity that I have, I will get better at this. I will find a voice, and I will be back to tear my blog up!

I guess it all depends on why you blog...

If it's for you, then who cares what anyone else thinks!
You love it... end of story.

If it's for everyone else... then I don't know what to say.

Being small is nothing when you do what you love.

So I am not even kidding right now when I tell you this but last night I was mowing you and you were on my mind for awhile (my mind thinks about anything and everything while mowing, its Heaven). Just wondering how you are doing--how I haven't connected with you recently--and yeah, just hoped that you were doing well and were happy.

Then I see this post.

While I will agree with number 3 on your list--I will not agree with number 1 and 2. What you say IS important and has meaning. And you are anything BUT small. So get those thoughts out of your head NOW. Got it ;)

But really--I care about you. And want only the best for you. xoxo

I completely agree and relate to what you are going through right now and this post. But, just as Erin said, you are important and I've always enjoyed reading your posts, so don't get discouraged!!

OHH I can totally understand. Try doing something TOTALLY different. That helped my blog A LOT.

I agree whole heartedly with this. It seems like a dog eat dog world in the blogosphere at times :/ Keep the good work up!
