Been Thinkin'.......

In the past couple of months I have seriously been thinking about ditching my blog. It really serves no purpose for me anymore. Most of the time I have to steal time to work on it. Usually the stolen time is taking away from more important daily tasks that need to be accomplished.

As of late, I really don't enjoy it much anymore. I almost dread it now. I feel compelled to write something interesting and daily life is definitely not as interesting or captivating as I would like it to be. Certainly not a bad life, but definitely not interesting enough to write a book about.

The initial purpose of my blog was to keep my family and friends informed of my daily life while living a few states away.

To be quite honest, I'm not really sure my dad reads my blog...I would guess not. I KNOW for a fact my son does not nor does my youngest brother. I KNOW that some of my favorite family members on hubby's side do not. Maybe a few distant and estranged family members may "check in" every once in a while.

I DO KNOW that a couple of good friends keep track. I DO KNOW that hubby reads it even though I don't know why.....he knows everything that is happening before it is written. I DO KNOW that my oldest brother reads it periodically.

I do enjoy writing for myself, but most the time when I feel compelled to blog for myself it's to vent, bitch, or criticize. Most the stuff I would say in a personal journal would not be blog worthy material and would probably not make my little light shine.

I have given myself to the end of the year to publicly blog. I will then reassess the situation and see how I mood seems to change from day to day lately.

I don't feel moody today, but I know I sure sound as though I am.

By the way, nothing noteworthy happened today.


  1. much as I hate the pressure of my own blog, I sure love reading yours. Not sure I'll continue with mine either...just no time, or desire ;~)

  2. I love your blog and would be oh, so sad if you didn't continue!!! Maybe your mood will change. ;) If it doesn't, though. .you could always just update a couple of times a week. Maybe that would help the feeling of "pressure." ??

  3. Don't stop blogging. I love reading your blog!! Maybe just blog when you feel motivated or pick a day each week and recap the highlights.

  4. I would miss your blogging! However, I get that sometimes it's hard to be creative. I could never do an every day sort of entry...too much pressure! Slow down and just highlight once a week or so and see if it gets any better. :-)

  5. Sorry I have not checked in more often, but I love reading your blog and seeing what you guys are up to. I wish I had more time to update mine. Please don't stop completly Kathryn and I love to look at the pics and reading what you and Summer and Toby are doing there. BTW loved seeing the fall colors we don't get many of those here.
