When I first started this blog, it was because we had just gotten married, and I wanted to document our life. Then it became more of an infertility blog. Then that became boring, b/c, let's face it, who wants to read about a sad, boring couple going through infertility (and ultimately, ending up there/here)? So, I tend to combine a little sadness, with a lot of good (albeit, NOT PERFECT) things. I talk about on how life isn't perfect. I don't have the perfect hair, body, wardrobe, house, etc. We don't go on major vacations, and we don't have a super nice car. Our marriage isn't perfect (far from it), and so I am blogging, essentially, to let the world know that life can be lived with out it being perfect. I have "met" lovely people on here. I have found out that some of my friends have blogs. I got my sister into writing a blog. So, of course, I am happy that I am blogging, and I don't think that I will ever stop.
But sometimes, I think "why bother"? "What's the point"? But not only there, often, there are SO MANY posts that I feel that I must blog about. Of course, there are any number of blog hops/link ups that I like to link up to. Then, I sometimes do my TToT. Then there are the daily, trivial things. Then, I will sometimes talk about this cool makeup that I bought. And I **HAVE** to blog about our trip...and, and, and...like right now, I have 4 or 5 (not even including the Friday Link ups/TToT) blog posts in my drafts that I want do. There's the pictures to add, the labels to add (which, I haven't done in awhile), and the re-arranging of my own blog to do. Then, there's my blog FB page. I am really trying to keep that up. But, I fail. A lot. Then, there is the "visiting". And the commenting. Oh, the commenting. I used to comment a lot... I may start doing it again. I love it when people comment on mine, so of course, I try to comment back. So yes....this blogging business takes up time. And yes, it becomes overwhelming. And it becomes too much at times. It is then that I have take a step back, try to figure out if I can either combine some posts, or just not worry about that topic altogether. Then, like I have just done...taken a few day, or a week (or longer) break. When I really don't "feel" like blogging, or just in a blogging funk, I usually end up reading through some of the MANY blogs that I follow, and that usually gets me out of it, and I get excited about/for blogging again.
Or, I just go back to hanging out on Facebook! Or, I pick up a magazine....or watch TV/movies...or bake.....or...do something, so I CAN blog about it...or IG...or, or, or....:)
