Blog Envy? Nah . . .

>Sometimes I peruse other blog sites and think how cool the authors and creators must be. Their blogs are awesome, have really great design, interesting photos, and the writing is outstanding. Their blogs make me want to invite them over and be friends. Then I come back to mine and try to compete.

But that’s not why I do this, so that people will like me and want to be friends with me. I have thoughts. Often random. Sometimes deep (or at least they are to me). Out of the box for some. Or even contrary to the norm from time to time. I ramble. I try not to tirade. I post pictures here and there, but not a lot.

I also have interests, many of which I enjoy sharing here and there.

That’s why I do this blog ~ as a personal outlet for my thoughts, interests, and feelings. I don’t want to spend hours a week thinking about my blog or having more followers than someone else. I simply want to express and share.

Not everything I share here quantifies who I am, but I’m willing to put some thoughts out there to also stir the inner thoughts and interests of others.

In the past I’ve been tempted to try to “out-do” some others, to spend some good money for a personal brand, come up with something awesome everyday that piques the interests of the masses. But . . . for what? So that I can have the best blog? I’m not in this to make money. I’m not doing this to out-cool the cool kids. I do this because I like it.

I’m as invested in this blog endeavor as I am my crocheting–I like to make blankets and scarves with straight rows and easy stitches because I don’t want my extra-curricular activities to be too hard. I don’t want to be known for my blog; it’s not my job or my career. Some people do (want to be know for their blog) and that’s great, for them. For some, blogging is their life. I’m not one of those people. Those are the people I’ll never out-do.

If you check in here from time to time, know that I really do appreciate you stopping by and hearing what I have to say, listening to my thoughts of the day–be they good, bad, or ugly–and seeing what I’m up to. I enjoy when you leave me feedback, whether I respond or not, (although my heart does dance just a bit when I see you’ve left a comment–and my heart does like to dance–hint, hint). But I don’t do this for ratings, comments, followers, profile views, or popularity.

I’m happy with just sprucing the place up a bit from time to time, and letting my thoughts roam free in cyber-space. And I extend the invitation to all to follow along, but if they don’t, that’s okay. I’m going to do what I’ve been doing anyway.

Just so you know.

    Is your heart dancing? I've left two, that's right, two comments now. I've read every single blog, but don't comment, but now that I know it makes that heart of yours do a little jig, I'll comment more! Miss you ~ Me
