Blogging is not easy. Sometimes it is hard to think of a new topic or to even get started.
This happens even though I blog for me and for my love of knitting.
Sometimes even the best of us get down. There are times that I think – “I don’t need to blog, no one reads it anyway.” Then I get a comment from someone that says “…I love your blog…” and it is worth it.
I really do write it for me – but sometimes – sometimes – you need positive reinforcement from others that it is worth the effort.
So I want to specifically thank “TexanaPurls”
for leaving a comment.
Your comment came when I really needed to hear a positive sound from someone. I have gotten other positive comments and trust me – I read every one. I am always thrilled when people comment. I always want to write back, but sometimes I don’t have a good email address for the commenter.
I have learned that I can’t write back to everyone. I hate that – but it the way it is.
I never know if what I write hits a chord or not.
I happen to know that The Big Texan’s sister “Sissy Tex” reads
But the only reason I know is because I don’t have to tell her
a lot of news.
I know my kids don’t read it – but I think Navy Wife does.
Sometimes you need to hear positive words.
If you read blogs and you really enjoy them –
please comment to those people.
Let them know that you appreciate their efforts.
If you don’t say anything
– they really don’t know that you are reading a
nd enjoying what they have to say.
I try to comment on my favorite blogs. I try to let the bloggers know that they matter to me. Please do the same thing for your favorite blogs.
I have been thinking about starting a podcast, but I am terribly insecure about all of it. I don’t want to feel like an idiot and I don’t want people to think – ‘how lame, why does she even bother?’
I know I shouldn’t worry about what everyone else thinks. I know that I should only care about what I think. But hey, we are all human.
So – if I started a podcast – would anyone listen?
Does anyone really care if I post or not?
These are my questions today.
Tomorrow I may have different questions.
