This blogging business is seriously hard work!
Sometimes, I really don't know if it's worth it because you're expected to participate in so many things and then people get pissy if heaven forbid you miss something because life got in the way. I got put in tiberr jail because on noes I didn't share for a week since I was OUT OF THE COUNTRY!
It's just so irritating because people apparently have nothing else to do but play on the internet ALL DAY LONG. I'm sorry, but I have a life outside of this little black box called my laptop.
There are days when I wonder if I really want to do this anymore. I love that I am keeping a record of what we are up to and I love the connections and friends I have made with other bloggers. But, when it feels like a chore and not enjoyable then it's not worth what little time I have to keep it up.
I think that that's why I have now started blogging simply for me again. Yes, I do share a lot of my life on here, but I also want to take time to just enjoy living without having to worry about getting that perfect photo for the blog. Being without a phone for over a week (yes I still don't have a phone and won't until I get home Friday) has honestly been kind of nice. I will admit that I've been going a little crazy not being able to check Facebook 50 times a day, but at the same time it's nice to have a bit of a break.
It's great to have a little extra income here and there, stressing about this space that is a HOBBY and NOT a part-time job isn't worth it. So yes, there will be some income producing stuff. But, mostly, I will be posting for me from now on and sharing on tiberr/twitter/facebook/instagram/whatchamcallit when I get a chance...which may not be for several weeks.
If you don't like my new attitude, well you can get over yourself and keep on scrolling by.
