2 Un-legit

I am NOT a blogger. There, I said it. You know you were all thinking it! Yes, I have a blog. And it is super cute and does have some potential if I may say so myself. But if I were to call myself a blogger, it wouldn't be fair to all the real bloggers. You know, the ones who actually put time and effort into their blogs and make it a priority? Yeah that's not me. As much as I enjoy sharing my creativity. As much as I love taking and sharing photos. As much as I want to have lots of followers and influence peoples lives... It's just too stressful for me! 

I starting blogging because I enjoyed it. I loved having a record of my projects and showing off my crafting skills. I wanted to share my fashion sense, my life experiences and make friends. But as soon as it started getting legit followers the pressure began to be too much and it stopped being fun. People expected posts multiple times a week. I stressed about having quality pictures and quality posts. I took pictures because I had to blog about it later. Not because I wanted to. Not because I enjoyed it. 

I thought I could be a blogger. But I can't.   So I am going to keep my blog, but without any expectations. I'm going to post when I want to. Even if that's once a month or a few days in a row, or maybe not for a few months. I'm going to post what I want to. If it's all baby stuff, then it's baby stuff. If it's all boring stuff then it's boring stuff. And if only three people read I then so be it! I started blogging for me and I'm going to get back to that. 

So to all my readers, thanks for putting up with all my non blogger-ness. And I hope you continue to read my blog anyway. 

And to all you legit bloggers out there, bravo! Kudos to you for finding something you love and making time for it. And for the beauty, creativity, and general awesomeness your blogs contribute to the world. I admire you all! Also, I apologize for being a pretend blogger.

There. I feel lots better. 

Well, I hope to find time to blog again soon! After all, with a new baby and a new house, I've got a lot to catch up on.
