I'm about to confess something. Although, if you've been following my little blog here for sometime, I think it won't be a big surprise. Especially since I've only been posting once in a while as of late.
The thing is, I'm sort of over the whole blogging thing. And believe me when I say this: It's not you. It's me. Really.
When I first started blogging it was to meet other writers. It was to figure out this whole social media thing besides FB. And it was fun. I've met tons of people by way of blogging. In fact, I was able to meet two CPs through blogging and a handful of writers who I now consider friends in the area (yea PLN peeps!). Actually, it is because of two of my friends whose blog post I read today on the same subject gave me the courage to do this. They summed up my feelings beautifully--and more eloquently.
The thing is (besides life being crazy busy) I have nothing to blog about. I don't have a wealth of knowledge on the subject of writing to share with you all, just my own experiences, which are few and far between. I don't have an agent and I'm not published, so I can't even share anything of that sort with you.
I'm just writing. And, since I have 4 young kids (ages 6 to 4 months) there are days where I'm lucky if I'm able to jot down a paragraph. I haven't even really had the time to read your blogs and comment. And I've found out that when I do find the time to blog/comment, that is time that I should have/could have used for writing. And, that's what I really want to do. Write.
So, I've decided that I'm only going to post on Fridays. Every week you can count on a post-- of some sort. And it will probably be something about my progress on my WIP, because really, this is my blog--this is my way of holding myself accountable--by throwing my stats out there. I'll also try and post some knowledge/tips that I learned throughout the week too.
So there you have it. My confession. Anyone else feeling the same way? Have you ever thought of scaling down your blog? Have you? Why or why not?
