My issues run a little deeper. In March, I will celebrate my one year Blog-versary. I am excited about the prospect of celebrating such an accomplishment. But truthfully, I am plagued with thoughts of frustration this morning. Crazy right?! Let me
whine a moment explain why. I can't seem to recon my thoughts about "why" I am doing this with what I feel should be the goals based on the time I invest in The Homeless Finch. Plus, the artist inside me is disappointed in myself for not just understanding this pursuit as I should be...as a road traveled that continues to inform my work, my life and fuels my days with purpose...with accountability. Without the blog, I am sure that I would be so back on that road I was on where I couldn't seem to jump start myself. The 'pressure' of reporting in has be a huge motivator for me and this was something that I needed dearly.
Do you ever have days, weeks, months like this? Do you ever wonder why you do what you do? Do you ever question your motivations? If you blog, do you ever get down on yourself when you see other blogs grow to huge numbers, while you grind it out on the ground everyday, every week only adding a few followers every few weeks? When you link your posts to parties, are you like me so tired that you can hardly pull off this simple task without straining your tired yes to see how your thumbnail looks on that linky list? Do you, or for that matter should I, care about followers and stats and comments and features?
It might be re-evaluation time. Don't ya think?!! Do you think about these things too? Let me know your thoughts. I'm waiting right here in my dreary little rain puddle, wondering if someone out there feels my soggy little pain. - If I hadn't made the commitment to never use text style writing my on my blog an LOL would have been inserted right here because sometimes....you just gotta laugh and say, Rain rain go away come again another day...
