The blogging world is taking too much of my time.
It's true. I have tried to keep up with my blogs and be sure to comment on other blogs. I even had a great stretch of being able to reply to every commenter on the blog. And then Mike started working all the time, school got more intense and Spanky decided to train for the 'messiest kid in the world' award.
I've been slacking. I look at my list of blogs and want to read each and every one. Then the second I start, the phone rings, something crashes or a child needs me right then. And the fantastic post that put such a smile on my face is left alone on the screen. I hate not having the time to leave a comment. I know they aren't suppose to be a huge deal but I love to leave comments, even more than getting one. It's my way of reaching out and padding someone on the back for congrats, prayers or just friendship.
Sadly, reaching out to other bloggers and blogging itself has turned into almost a chore. I vowed from the start if blogging lost its fun, I would stop. But I really did have fun.
So I am going to make a few changes. I will be posting a little less, unless I really have a lot to say, and trying to comment a little more. I am thinking I might spend one day posting and commenting on different days.
I don't know if it will work but I am going to try and I am going to do my very best to make blogging fun again!
