My friend Mishelle (Secret Agent Mama) came over last Tuesday to help with all of my blogging questions. After providing me with a much needed lesson on blogs, widgets, pages, feeds, etc. I confessed how deep my obsession and lack of knowledge really is. I showed her the stack of books on blogging and search engines that I picked up from the library and had been reading. After she composed herself and quit laughing at me she took a picture of my stash. I didn’t tell her about the other titles hiding in my book basket.. I picked up several on writing prompts and creative writing. I even read a few on grammar. I decided that I was a lost cause when it came to grammar and spelling. I will just have to count on Steve and spell check. (try to forget the last couple of sentences when you think of me as a home schooler.) Thank God for good curriculum!
I have to confess that I have found blogging to be a lot harder than I thought it would be. I can’t tell you how many times I have started a post and then erased it. I have visited many other blogs trying to see how the rest of you do it. I worry that readers don’t care that I am having a hard time blogging, or that my son tried to eat a float. Reading another one of my blogging books today, I was reminded why I started the blog in the first place. Figuring out who I am, having a place to sort my thoughts, sharing info about Mattie’s health, an outlet for my stress. I am taking the books back to the library. I am going to try to stop worrying what everyone thinks. I am going to get back to my goal of unraveling the mystery of me.
