Although I really enjoy blogging (and it certainly takes up all my free time), I've come to the conclusion that I pretty-much suck at it. Here's why...
1. I don't have much quality time for writing. The only time I have to think and write is when my kids are asleep. But that is also my ONLY quiet time, so I usually want to sleep then too, or get on Facebook, or eat something.
2. I tend to procrastinate. Well, it's not so much 'procrastination' as it is 'multi-tasking'. If I happen to start writing about something, I often times will take a super-quick break to sleep, get on Facebook, or eat something. Hmmm. I'm noticing a slight trend here.
3. I just don't have a ton of extraordinary things to say. Wait. I do. As a matter of fact, when I am in the middle of a shower or just as I am about to fall asleep for the night, I have some really great ideas. I'm talking award-winning, make you laugh, make you cry kind of ideas. I even go as far as to organize the whole thing in my head, nearly word for word. Somehow though, and I have no idea why, by the time I get the chance to write down my masterpiece, it sounds like crap and I assume nobody will enjoy reading it. I don't even want to read it. So it gets deleted.
I read a lot of blogs where it seems like every post is just like my life. Why didn't I think about writing all that stuff? My kids do those things too. And hey...I could totally write 5,000 words about some cookies I baked! ... If I baked.
So thanks for sticking around 'till the end of this post (which was, by the way, composed in the shower)! And make sure to keep coming back because one day...you just might stumble upon my masterpiece. :)
