The Blah-gs

I have a serious case of the blah's which has ballooned into the blah-gs. I'm not quite sure what it is. Maybe I can't think of interesting to write. Maybe I've never written anything all that interesting to begin with. I've even been less than devoted to reading blogs I love.

Blogging is good. It's a nice escape for when I need a little break from reality. But! Can you take too many breaks?! Can you become too neurotic about your blog?! (you don't have to actually answer that, I already know of my neurotic-ness) I find myself.......obsessing. Wondering how many comments I've gotten in the 20 minutes since I've been away from the computer. Wondering why people who used to comment no longer comment. Did I offend them? Or am I just incredible boring but too oblivious to realize it. Because I am lame. And I have been faced with much of my lameness over this whole situation. Maybe it's just me? (feel free to answer that one) I've been surprised by how much I enjoy writing. It's a good outlet. An outlet that I actually have the time and space to do. So, what's my problem?! Maybe I'm just having a mini-mid-life crises. Don't you get a shiny red car for that? I like shiny things.

The Blahs have extended to much of my life, but it is almost summer so I have hope. And the girls have a tiny, plastic swimming pool so I have entertainment. I have a fabulously wonderful new camera to play with. And the girls have goggles. Things are good.

I've had the blahgs for about 3 months. I have all these ideas, but I put off actually sitting down and writing. SOmetimes I still get that excitement. I don't know what to tell you.

Sorry you have the Bloggy Blues, but it is just a phase. Kinda like PMS, only you don't want to kill someone! I always enjoys reading your "stuff!" Take a pill and get back to blogging! LOL

Ack! Looks like I swung by your blog just in the nick of time. I have many important things to say, so let's get started...

1) I have been a bad bloggy friend to everyone in the Internet. My lameness is due to my own lack of time and energy...I suspect that others are suffering from similar fates. The lack of comments is NOT a reflection on you.

2) Blogging is cyclical. Think about it...more people blog during the fall and winter, than during the spring and summer. Kids are out of school, vacations happen...I guess you could say life gets in the way of blogging.

3) The Blahs are usually cured with a break. Take them whenever you need them.

I hope my little pep talk helped a bit. Going forward, we are not planning any giveaways, promotions, etc this summer. Just commenting and posting, which means I'll probably hang out here, if you'll have me. :)

Good luck, my friend.

You blog more than most people I know! Keep in mind it is supposed to be fun!

I know for a fact several people read your blog everyday, probably never comment, but are disappointed when there's not a new one. Rereading the old ones is fun, too. Carry on, you're the best!! (And so are Lolly, Babs and CG. Dexter seems pretty cool, too.)

It's funny. When people write that they have nothing to blog about, sometimes those are THE MOST entertaining, endearing ones!! Like, I LOVE that pic of your girls.

Some of my best posts (according to me!) have come from when I had NOTHING to say. Then it's just like a free flow!

And on the days I really can't write, I post funny pics of my dogs and I don't care who thins they're lame and boring cuz I read my own blog and I love seeing them!!

Welcome to the land of the mid-life crisis. Hmmmm. Maybe I should get a shiny new car. We could get matching ones. Although my budget would only cover a matchbox model.

Your blog is the highlight of my day!! Which either means you have an interesting and fantastic blog - or that I lead a very sad and lonely life. My life is only sad and lonely when I am unable to read new postings on my favorite blogs!!

The best part about being a blogger is that is your own little world. Feel free to blog or not, (thank goodness for google reader!) and you can have your down moments, we all do.
