Blogging and real life

There's a lot of competition out in the blogging world.

It's easy to get wrapped up in it and get swept away on all the "what ifs..."

What if I got a comment on every post? What if my goggle page rank was higher? What if I made money with my blog? What if? What if? What if?

My review period is coming to an end for this year. I have only a few more product reviews and then a nice break until after the holidays. Some folks on the review crew are talking about what they plan to blog about during the break since they won't have any reviews. I wasn't interested because I have plenty to blog about. Lots of content swimming around here. Little post-it notes and notebook pages scribbled with funny events, homeschooling struggles, and thoughts. All these thoughts and yet nothing ever gets written or posted. Sometimes pictures get posted, and sometimes that's all I can manage.

It's hard to raise kids. There's no easy way to do it. If it is easy, then I am convinced you're doing it wrong. It takes all your time, all your money, and a good part of your life. And it can be dirty and messy and exhausting. And that was just this morning.
But at the same time there really is no better way to spend your time. Or your money. It's a life-long commitment. And it is so worth it.
Totally worth it!

I never seem to lack for something to write about either---it's just finding the time to do it amid all the "must dos." I hope you enjoy your reviewing break. ;)

I second what you're saying, Jessica!
