Bored with Blogging?

If you answered yes to that question, I understand how you feel.  I think it's the time of year. Summer. Kids home 24/7. No break. No time for me. Why in God's name would I want to spend my itty bitty time at the computer blogging?

Well, let's answer that as a hormonal, husband-deprived woman.
I wouldn't.

And now as a mother.
This place can really help me vent.

Finally, as a writer.
This is a place to focus my efforts. When my writing has taken a back seat to other priorities, this is where I can formulate ideas and keep in touch with friends, fans and strangers. It's not a bad place for shooting the breeze, either.

Today, I'm working on something new, I think.
Just going to open a blank document and start spitting words.
Have a great day.
With Love,

What do you Blog?

Do you ever look at your blog and think, I should just shut this thing down. I love my blog, really. It has elements of me all over it, but it also feels limiting. Weird, I know. Let me explain.

I was blog hopping, started at my sisters blog and jumped through a few virtual hoops by following her follower list. Read some wonderful posts by friends from my childhood... acquaintances and family. That's when I realized, I didn't have anything spontaneous on my blog anymore. It was all very calculated. Even with the Blog Menu at the right being so new, there's always been a theme of some sort...

usually in the way of writing. I LOVE WRITING.

But, sometimes, I wonder if my blog represents my voice very much... bottom line right now: after doing this Menu bit for a few weeks, I'm bored. :P That's not good! I don't know what to do! I'm going to think on it....

and get back to my manuscript, which is at 29, 861 words. Eeek! close to half done. Phew.
