You’ve probably noticed, the proportion of words to photos around here has become even less than usual of late. Today also happens to mark my one-year blogging anniversary, and I wish I were more excited. I must confess, I’ve been feeling a lot of bloggy discontent and thought I might as well share and get it off my chest.
My State of Discontent
No need to go into detail here, this is a common complaint. I have come to realize, I really am content being a small blogger. I need to kill the site meter and I’ll be a happier blogger indeed.
Little Miss Sunshine
I get down on all the angst. I know it’s valuable to have a space where we’re honest about our shortcomings, and how hard parenthood is, blah, blah, blah, but I do get very tired of so much negativity. When you’re learning a sport, it’s best to surround yourself with players who are better at it then you are, thus improving your skills. So, if I want to be a happy, light-hearted, confident parent…
What I’m saying is, I wish there were more laughs. And more poems.
Where does all the time go?
I feel guilty that I waste too much time between blogging and reading other blogs and obsessively checking site meter. I really want to try to write short stories this summer, before school starts again, and I think blogging is a big distraction.
I also want to fuck my husband more often.
I actually gave serious thought lately about calling it quits at the one-year mark, but I don’t think I’m ready.
You’re My Inspiration
The main reason I don’t quit is you people. Damn you. So many of you have become real-life friends. A couple of you I knew before, but now consider close friends. There are several of you I am dying to meet at BlogHer. You folks are just too important to give up.
Plus, even if I’m not doing very good writing, at least I’m writing almost daily. And I must admit, there is something very satisfying about a consistent number of people reading my words each day—no matter how large that number is, it is thrilling, and it’s an honour.
So I guess this means, I’m hanging in there.
Thank-you, my friends.
Less blogging, more triking!
