Today's post wherein I question the sanity of blogging

It has been quite a while since my last post. Sheesh...that kind of sounds like a confession doesn't it?

Frankly, I have contemplated whether to continue with blogging or not...something I'm sure most bloggers have done at one point or another. First, there is the realistic challenge of time between homeschooling three kids and keeping a house & garden. In walking away from blogging, I have noticed that I am more free to be in the moment & present. It's about all the things I can participate in instead of sitting in front of the computer composing.

Second, does anybody really care? I mean this in the most sincere way. Although I don't look at the blogs I read as narcissistic, I have often battled that feeling toward my own blog. Do I really add any value to the myriad of voices out there? Would it be any better if I chose one topic of personal interest and stuck to that, taking the focus off of myself (for example just vegan living, just gardening, or just homeschooling, etc. )?

I have no answers at the moment...just contemplations...and that's okay. :)


  1. A lot of what you said here is how I think about my own contributions to the blogging world (or lack thereof). And I don't have any answers either, except that your writing (and anyone's writing for that matter) does have value and worth to your friends who honestly care and have an interest in what you have to say. :)

  2. I too have been coming and going, in and out of the blog world. Busy living! Regardless it is fun to wander through blogs, check in with the spirits and images of different perspectives. I think I'm going to only blog once a month or when I feel like taking a breath, taking some photographs and jotting down some moments from our busy life. Keep on sharing, I enjoy reading about your life!

  3. I always go back and forth on the blogging thing. To do or not to do...sometimes you have to take a break and then write again when the spirit strikes. Until then, enjoy your family and embrace each day fully! You'll know if you want to come back or not.
