I'm not trying to be a debbie downer today. I mean after all this is my Friday and I have a 4-day weekend packed with fun things coming up! I think things in my "real life" are great, but this blogging thing has me confused and frustrated.
It started when I was sooo bummed I only got 3 entries in my giveaway. I was expecting so much more than that. I'm still going to remind people to sign up, but if no one else does, I guess those who did have a 1 in 3 chance of winning.
Then, I came across some great blogs this week. I constantly scrutinize myself against them... their blog design, their writing style, ultra-creative posts, the number of followers they have... the list is endless.
Finally, yesterday when I posted about the two police offers who died, all of two people commented. The story I posted was something really meanginful to me and I assumed it would be to everyone else too.
Maybe that is my problem - that I am expecting too much. I am writing for other people and not myself. I want other people to care and they don't. I'm comparing myself to others too much. I am not exactly sure. All I know is I'm totally frustrated.
Last night my hubby really liked my post about the police officers, and said "great post babe" when I walked in the door. So I then vented about all the things I was frustrated about and said "I don't know if I want to keep blogging anymore."
