..I'm only a seasonal blogger!
You may have noticed, I haven't blogged in a while...
... but that's okay, it's summer, and summers are short.
So many things to get done, so little time... it will be winter before I know it and I will wonder why I spent all my time sitting at my computer when I could have been outside enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer! ...and so, I don't.
But today it's raining... and I have found a bit of time to catch up on reading all my blog friends' posts, I may not answer, but I'm reading... there is only so much time in a day after all and I have inside chores to do that have been neglected since I've been spending so much time outdoors.
But this whole blogging thing has gotten me thinking... I'm reading blogs that say they don't just want to be another DIY blog, blogs that tell you how to make your blog successful (not even following their own recommendations!), blogs for pleasure reading, blogs for informational reading, blogs that appear successful with numerous followers, blogs for inspiration, blogs that charge fees for this service or that, this product or that.
If I was younger, perhaps I'd give my blogs some serious consideration... my initial reasons for starting my first and second blogs (this is my third), have all but gone by the wayside and I have come to the realization that for me, my blog is just a way to release all the thoughts that go through my head, perhaps just to show what I'm working on at the moment or something I have finished and am pleased with... and if I feel like blogging, I will, and if I don't, I won't. I no longer think of it as a way to market my wares, or to try and build my customer base.
I don't need to be like all the younger people out there who are so technically orientated that they are using social media as a way to earn money from home so they can stay home with their kids... it's a fantastic concept... a throwback to the "stay-at-home" mother, but with the independence of being able to say they have contributed to the family income... I like that, I'm independent and like earning my own money. So, if that's you goal, then go give 'er...
...for me, I just have to accept.... I'm only a seasonal blogger! I appreciate all those who do visit and leave comments, but I also understand, life doesn't revolve around blogging!
I hope you are all taking the time to enjoy your summer!
