Mary over at
Now Entering Momville. You've opened my eyes to How shitty my blogging has become!
Mary is starting up a wednesday prompt, where you can send her an older post and she will post it. (great idea Mary!)
Well, I started going back to look for something worthwhile. Something I had written that I thought would be enjoyed. Looking through October and September posts, all I saw were fill in the blank meme's and prompts that I've been leaning on because my own thoughts were just not coming. Having these prompt days to lean on may be the reason I didn't even attempt to try to think of interesting things to write about all by myself.
Kind of like when you're dieting.. and making a salad is just too much work compared to the instant joy of ripping open that bag of milano cookies. Why pull from my overloaded brain? They've done half the work for me.
This awakening, has also answered my own disappointed question. Why aren't as many people commenting on my blog? At first I blamed google reader. I am just as guilty. I read blogs that I really enjoy reading. I think of how much I want to tell the blogger that I enjoyed their posts. But, oh wait.. let me read this persons first and then I could go back... and then ..Your phone beeps, your bladder beeps, Your microwave beeps. Your brain dead, so you don't remember to go back and comment. Well, that may be happening too, but I tend to think it's more likely the uninteresting 'forms' that I keep just filling in. NEVER one to hurt anyones feelings, I think these forms are all very creative and they ARE very fun to do, However.. it shouldn't be ALL that I am doing.
I can think of 4 bloggers off the top of my head, that I used to love hearing from. I still comment on their blogs, but they must just find me and uninteresting dolt.
I am going to try to go back to blogging about personal affairs, people pissing me off, and just my everyday thoughts. That writing style is difficult to keep up with daily and just my luck, I find myself enlightened about my funk, during the first week of this nablopomo nonsense. committing to posting every single day for November? What the hell was I thinking?
