We’re gearing up for that start of another year homeschooling and looking back over my blog, I realized that I’ve only written TEN blog posts (including this one) over the course of the past year?! This from a blogger who posted 168 posts on 2008 and 131 in 2011!
I’ve written about this before and I’ve even told myself that I’d be perfectly okay with just blogging whenever I was “inspired.”
Is it just that I’m not inspired anymore?
I’m not sure it’s that simple.
After blogging for going on 11 years now, I’ve seen things change and grow. And in the last few years I’ve seen bloggers I know get attacked for one reason or another.
Did you know that there are even hate blogs out there whose sole purpose is to rant and degrade other bloggers??? (Usually the more popular bloggers…)
I think I’m just chicken.
See the stuff that’s been coming to mind to post lately just feels too raw… too personal… it feels like exactly the sort of thing that would get me attacked. Not that I think I’m “popular” enough for anyone to even really notice… but I’ll never forget the first comment that I received that really hurt my feelings.
Maybe I’m just not cut out for that.
But then when I think of just going back to the simple family updates that my blog originated with, that seems so pointless. I mean, now all of our family is now on Facebook and keeps up with us DAILY!
So here I am… at this impasse: No need to continue posting family updates in blog form and being too chicken to open myself up for ridicule and/or condemnation.
What’s a blogger to do???
Any of you out there ever felt this way?
