Remember when I said “see you in six weeks?” and my beautiful girl is three months old?
The truth is, I’ve been scared of jumping back into this blogging thing. I don’t feel like it’s my forte. Part of it is my lack of confidence. Every time I start blog-surfing again, I feel this overwhelming sense of intimidation. Thoughts start to surface about my inadequacy. Thoughts like “Her FOURTH book is coming out?” or “She has over 2000 followers?” or “She just had a baby and is STILL blogging?” And I know I’m not supposed to compare. But it’s hard.
Another reason is my lack of time. Life has been pulling me in so many directions lately, it’s hard to spend adequate amounts of time on my hobbies, let alone my obligations. Work is picking up dramatically, and is about to get even busier. With hopefully three new Noah’s buildings on the horizon, all at once, I’ve got a lot to do with my day job. Then there’s the beautiful baby girl. She’s so great, really. But she’s still an infant that needs to be fed every three hours (except at night. She’s so wonderful and sleeps about 12 hours every night. good girl). And then there’s potty training…
I won’t go into that.
But I keep having what I call “blog-thoughts.” Things that I ponder upon and think, “I should post that and see if anyone agrees with me.” So this is my test. My wary foray back into the blogging world. We’re all busy. We all have obligations and passions and hobbies. And that’s what makes this blogging thing so neat. We can share all those things with a massive amount of like-minded people who we’d never get to meet otherwise.
Which is why I can’t give it up. I hope some people are still here. I hope I didn’t scare you away with the massive remodel posts and subsequent silence.
And as always, Happy Wednesday!
