Re-evaluation

I wish I could type up these posts that are full of life and all puffy and great... unfortunately my blog has had some reductions. To list a few... pictures, posts, and most of all comments and traffic.
I'm not sure what has happened. I know that my blog isn't as hilarious or witty as others. I know it damn sure isn't as well written as some. But, in all realness does that matter? Will that matter in a few years when my son can read and I show him some funny posts about him and his sisters? NOPE!
I'm so consumed with trying to please the readers, or actually GET the readers and get comments and feed back that I'm obsessing over it more than I'm typing about the great, cute, funny, crazy, smart, sweet things that my wonderful children are doing.
I started a blog so I had a place to come and brag about my children without feeling like I was boasting too much. Also so I could share photos with friends and family and have a way to look back on them as the kids get older. A place to vent and shed some stress. I started blogging, just for me, for my family and for a few of the friends that read this. Now I'm becoming an attention whore and wanting everyone to come read my posts.
Nothing against any of you... (whom ever is reading this) I do love you all, and love reading your blogs and actual do enjoy your comments, BUT I'm not blogging for you, well I am, but it wasn't my true intention. I try to tell the story about what happens in our lives in a way that will grab your attention, and really that isn't what I need to be doing. I need to tell the story so that when we look back we laugh and have the fondest memories of it.
So from now, I'm just going to blog about our lives. Plain and simple, and honestly that is what this blog will probably be like too... plain and simple and possibly very boring to the average outsider... but to us, it will be the keeper of our memories. :)

...and that's all that matters! I gave up caring about comments a few months ago. I have my regulars, who are more like family now. Sure, we all love the kudos we get, but like you said, that's not what really matters.

Oh, and I'll keep coming by!

What more could your kids ask for sweet? Who cares the WAY you write your stories, it's WHY you do it that really counts;o) And the bloggers that really think your some kinda special won't care if it's plain or boring. We'll read because we're interested in being a PART of the memories! Love you much Jennifer.

I agree with you. I am here at least once a day and interested in your stories.

I completely understand what you are saying here. I never thought ANYone would read my blog, seriously. I started it on a whim, didn't think about the name or look very much. And all of a sudden, it's about my readers. Good for you for sticking to the true nature of why you started it. A good lesson for all of us.

Good for you Jenn. You are so right. This should be something that brings you joy and something that you and your family can look back on in years to come. It is my pleasure to visit and get a chance to peek into your lives and see your family grow :) I look forward to continuing my visit here to read about you and your family. :)

I think you've got it right. I started out blogging because a friend told me to and had all these grand plans. After Little Elvis was born, I sort of adjusted everything and realized the blog should be more of a chronicle of what is going on in his life. He may not find it interesting, but I bet his future wife would love it.

Lindsey said...

Girl I am with you. My blog is me, just me. About nothing in particular. I like making lists and showing off my kids. Blogging, for me, is like my online scrapbook.

I always enjoy my visits here. And I'll be back:)

Good for you! I found myself writing almost this same entry a couple of weeks ago. It's amazing how we lose sight of why we started this whole blogging adventure. I'm a total comment whore and it drives my hubby crazy how often I check sitemeter for my stats. I've finally started relaxing a bit and trying to get back into why I started this. The quote on my blog says it all. "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss
