What in the world is so important that it keeps me away from this blog?
Is “real life” a good enough answer?
You know how social media is meant to help you share your life? Well, what if it BECOMES your life? I mean, yes, yes, yes, of course “becoming your life” is a bit of an exaggeration, but kind of not, when it came to blogging for me personally!
I found myself living and breathing blog business (or “busy-ness” as it turns out to be), to the detriment of my family. Late nights commenting on and reading every blog under the sun, writing, taking pictures of every little thing I could think of that might be used in a future post. It got to the point where I was always present, but never participating. I got tired of that. I got tired of being an observer of life instead of an active participant. I got tired of having to document my opinion and everything I was doing on Twitter, on Instagram, on Facebook, on this blog… UGH! I didn’t want to do that anymore!
So I decided to re-prioritize, which simply breaks down to this: I blog when I blog. I share when I share. No pressure, no watching stats, no worrying about this or that. And I’m more than okay with that. I hope you are okay with that! (I know what it’s like when you invest in a blog and want updates and it doesn’t happen.)
I suppose this means that my little blog baby isn’t going to be on any Top Thousand Best Blogs of All Time or a money maker, or blah, blah, blah, but who cares? I’m keeping blogging fun for me and the only way to do that is to keep the pressure off. So, here’s to priorities and keeping it fun around here!
