My dear friend Estelle wrote a post today that hit home. She talked about a time when blogging was fun, and about the things that have made many of us recently shy away from blogging – myself included. I realized that my blog images weren’t perfectly lit and sized. I became ultra conscious of my typos and mistakes. I started feeling like anything and everything I posted wasn’t original enough. So I stopped for the most part. In stopping I have lost, or limited, my connection to the wonderful and amazing people who I have met through blogging. I miss them. I miss reading their blogs (many of them have limited their posting as well) and I miss their comments on mine. Thank you Estelle for such a great post today. It is a reminder to me of what this blog is…or should be. I am not in this to make millions (hahahahahah) and I am not in this to be become a published author or any of that. It is just my corner of the world that I share with some friends. While instagram pics and screen shots of what shoes I am coveting might not gain me 1000 readers a day, it will allow me to connect with the friends I have made who live all over the US who visit this space.
Thanks Stella. You once again spoke to me through your post. And let’s not even talk about your amazing trip! Miss seeing you in person as much as I have missed reading your posts.
Please read Estelle’s post….these thoughts were brought on by it.
