The Problem with Blogging.
Another week has past and I realize, wow, I haven't blogged in a while. Sad. I know. I'm lame. But what can I do. I mean, I want to blog more. But sometimes, I just can't. And you know what? That's okay.
I love writing my blog. I've shared that before. Its an outlet for me; a place to share thoughts, ask questions, vent, and connect with others. Sometimes its funny, sometimes it about the realities of life. Sometimes is deep and thoughtful and sometimes I don't know what it is.
But whatever it is, my blog is mine. I write it. And I like writing it. But the problem with blogging is, the overwhelming pressure to be consistent with the blog. I have a small readership, a couple on a good day. And that's okay. But it amazes me how much pressure comes with writing a blog and making sure you post something every single day. Crazy. It's not like it's a job. I don't make money from this blog. I don't do forums, online meet and greets, or chats. I rarely get comments. And yet, I still feel like I have to post something daily.
But as you can see when you look at recent posts, it's been a couple of days since my last post. Part of that is intentional; I don't want to be locked into an unrealistic schedule of demand and expectation. However, I do believe that blogging offers a unique opportunity to be a voice that supports faith, family, and ideas that offer hope to encouragement to my readers. After all, that's why I started blogging in the first place. And that is what I hope to continue to do.
So let me thank you for taking the time to read. I really do appreciate it. And please leave a comment below. I promise to respond.

Yup. I read. And look daily for your messages of real life and our faiths' applications in those situations. So keep it up.
