More Me

The truth is, this blog has been giving me anxiety for the past year. I loved this blog, it was my thing, my happy place, my baby that I would dress up in fun little outfits and sing songs in the car with, but now, it quietly haunts me. A reminder of yet another project that I’ve let slip away. Much of has to do with the job — they pay me to write all day and having money lets me … have money, so yeah, see ya homes. But it’s not just that. I don’t want to post just to post. And it seems that every time I sit down and tell myself, “Okay, write something,” I start to wonder, what’s the point if it’s not going to add anything to anyone’s life? I look at the internet a lot and there’s a lot of the same shiznit. I don’t want to simply add to the chatter. Anyway, I’m not sure where this post is going. I know it’s the new year, and I could take this moment to proclaim, IN 2012, I WILL BE THE BEST BLOGGER IN THE GALAXY! but I’ve done that too many times to be taken seriously. Really though, in 2012, I can’t promise much, but I do strive for more rawness in my writing, more honesty, more me.

  1. Well I sure hope so! :) Don’t quit, you’re awesome.

  2. I like to think of blogging as an evolution. It’s a process of finding your voice, growing, and sharing. I’ve felt like I’ve been in a rut lately, and I’d like to change that in the new year.

    I really enjoy your posts, by the way, and look forward to hearing more from you!

  3. Blogging comes and goes in cycles, it’s best to only do it when you are inspired to do it! Besides, all of us readers know when it comes from the heart and connect more when posts come, even if it’s few and far between :) I’ll always be happy to see your blog pop up on my reader!

  4. I feel ya. I’ve been on a blog hiatus for a few months now. I keep wanting to do a “Happy New Year!” post, but I still feel like I have nothing to write about. Maybe if I had out of town family I could write to keep them updated, but I don’t need to as they all pretty much live 20 min from me. Anyway. I do love your posts! So don’t quit completely :)

  5. I religiously look forward to your posts and your tweets because even your one-liners are hilarious to me. Seriously.

    Belly B :)

  6. I relate to this is so many ways… Figuring out WHAT a personal blog is really about is challenging. It’s definitely a chase that never ends. For what it’s worth, I love you writing, and I especially love your blog when you’re at your most honest and personal… Which is, of course, the real tough stuff. Obviously. Ugh.

  7. everyone’s life is so busy, but it’s always so nice and comforting to drop into your blog during my downtime and read your entries. I’ll still be reading regardless if you write or not (the old, the new…all excellent reads) <3

  8. I’m still stuck on the makingmoney part. Can you help me with that? an email would be great because I’m totally looking for a second source of income
