Why blog?

Sometimes I wonder why I even have a blog. I enjoy posting pictures to it if for nothing else I am at least getting that put together as an online scrapbook and chronicles of our little family, just need to look into how to print it. But for the most part I wonder what the point is as I have hardly any readership, I guess there is usually not much to read as I just post pictures and explainations of the pictures.

I read some of the blogs on my list and am amazed at what some people are comfortable sharing with the rest of the blogging world. I am quit jealous of it actually. For some reason I just don't feel comfortable writing a whole lot of my thoughts, trials, ect. I am not sure if it is because I am scared of judgement, unsure of my writing abilities, or just that fact that I can never think of any thing clever to say.

I think the main thing is that I worry what I will say will be misconstrued or something. Although I have a very mellow appearance I sure as heck have a lot of opinions and views, wonder if I post some of them if people will be offended with me or something. Other days when I would love to vent on my blog I worry that people will think I am just an onry person or that I am more upset about an issue then I really am, I tend to have that happen a lot. I guess my facial expressions tell more then I mean or feel.

Jared reminds me often that I worry way to much what other people think, so maybe this will help me get over it!

Anyway, what I am getting at is I might just start blogging on my blog instead of just posting pictures of my kids (even though that will still be the main thing I do... I love to brag and share!) Please don't take offense or look more into what I am saying. My next class will be creative writing, so hopefully that will help me post more enjoyable interesting bits.

I don't think there is anything boring about your blog, I just rarely leave comments on any blog. Sometimes the thoughts and opinions do get alot more responses, but sometimes not good ones. Be careful, but have fun. Your blog to just have fun. Express yourself, the things YOU like/dislike, things that make you wonder, things that make you happy. Of course most of that is your kids, but try to express yourself too. Thats my advice! :) Love ya sis!

You can post whatever you want to post! Like I had one person tell me it is your blog post whatever you want! That is what I do and what you should do if you want too. No one will think you are dumb or what not. I mean have to read my blog and all my rants and raves on everything that is going on. Be you!!!!!! I would love to read your rants heck we had alot of venting sesions back in the day!

Thanks for continuing to blog. I like to know how you guys are doing. With my blog I just copy and paste everything into a Word document, then I have my ongoing "blog journal" saved on my hard drive as well. Haven't actually printed it out yet, but that's how I would do it. :)
