I didn’t get my project done for my post today. I guess you could say my life got in the way….
So instead I thought I would write about what’s on my mind. The other day I heard someone talking condescendingly about blogging. I think the words they used were “desperate mommy bloggers” to be specific.
I have to admit it made me feel really bad. The comments weren’t aimed at me specifically, they didn’t know I am a blogger after all. But I felt bad… “is what I’m doing something to be mocked?” I thought.
It got me thinking about what blogging means to me. I started “Make it Do” almost one year ago. And while sometimes it’s a struggle…. This blog has pushed me in ways I never imagined. It makes me think about what’s important in life…. what really matters. It inspires me to put my ideas into action. It makes me want to do life better.
And though I really try to limit the blogs I read each day to around 20 minutes…
I’ve even made some friends.
The world of blogging is a vibrant community- teaming with ideas, good advice, wisdom, and compassion.
I’m sure the worst of us is out there too… but I don’t bother myself with that.
And I’m reminded of the old saying… “don’t let the um… turkeys get you down.”
