Bad blogger!!

I'm a bad blogger. Probably for the same reason why I'm a bad journal writer too. I get feeling like I have to write a lot and it has to be filled with detail and description.  But in reality, halfway through, I get overwhelmed and realize that the post I thought would take me 20 minutes to write is in all reality going to take me 2 hours and I get overwhelmed and stop.  Sad isn't it!!  Over the past few months while I've been hiding from all blogdom, I've noticed a lot of things that my my friends blogs so successful.

1. They blog regularly--every day or at least a few times a week.
2. Length. Their posts aren't all long. Some are, but most are relatively small or moderate in length and really get to the point.
3. They keep it real. I love reading my friends blogs where they just say it like it is. No deep thinking, no big words. they just keep it real real simple.

So needless to say, you will be hearing from me more often. Not steps people. Baby steps. But more often. And I'm going to start telling you more about me. Not that I haven't, but I want you to see more of me on an every day level. I have a great life. Kinda boring somedays, but nevertheless a great life. So don't banish me from your blog check list, as some have done :(  I'm here and I'm writing.

As for banishing you -- that's what feed readers are for! That way I don't have to spend time checking every day if you're not writing :-)

I would never remove you from my blog roll!

Thanks for all the love guys!! I actually had a friend write and tell me that if I didn't write on my blog soon she would stop checking it. I was speechless. Needless to say, I didn't respond.

Do you think she could have been joking? That's totally something I would say in real life, except it would be accompanied by a huge smile and a joking tone of voice. That's difficult to see in writing.
