Blogfession

I have been totally paralyzed with writers block. I have had a couple of really unfriendly comments posted regarding my writing and recently lost a follower which upset me more then it really should have. I have just been unable to write. While my kids are still funny as crap and they are making me crazy as usual, it has not come to me in words to post.

Yesterday I read a post by Theta Mom that gave me the prospective that I needed. I have stopped writing for me. I have lost my blog voice, I gave up what I wanted to say in order to gain followers, fans and give away's. I have spent more time using my blog to get people to like me and follow me and less time writing what I wanted to be saying.

I am reclaiming my voice. I cannot let my blog be a source of stress for me, I can't freak out about posting everyday so I don't lose people, make my self crazy trying to follow back and comment on every blog.

I really do love reading all the blogs I follow, I think you ladies are funny and witty and I hope you won't leave me because I don't write everyday or I don't do meme's or I am a crappy comment buddy. I just want my blog to go back to being the fun it was for me.

That's all the serious I have in me for today, I am off to N's school for him birthday and to meet his new "friend" who he has informed me has a "hard crush on him"
Really, why I am dealing with girl drama already with my 5 year old boy???

See you soon back and better then before
xoxo

Writing for you again - awesome.

Fabulous! If I thought too much about what I was posting, whether people would like it or if it would offend or if I should post something else, I would never post anything.

I too have cut back on so many memes and wanting to write for myself again. Actually, a lot of people are doing the same thing. You wont lose your true followers :)

Crushing at 5? Craziness!!!

I'm glad that you're going to be back at it...remember, people will read if you speak to them...it doesn't have to be what they want to hear all the time. You make us think as we do you!

I'm so right there with you. I just started blogging like 5 minutes ago and already I was freaking out about blogging to gain followers, comments, etc. And the sad thing? It didn't really work! And I hated it. So I am now back to blogging what I want to write and if people don't like it they can suck it. All these dramas and revelations in the span of a week. I'm so deep.

Good for you! You will find more success writing for you and not for the other stuff. Thanks for sharing...I appreciate your wise thoughts.

I still love you! And I look forward to your posts!

Yay for you :) I'm so sorry you got a rude comment. That's ridiculous. And I still love your blog :)

It's no fun if you aren't blogging for yourself.

I have to say that since morning noon and night sickness has engulfed me, blogging and reading blogs has been tough... I've also decided that I'm not going to be a slave to the numbers anymore... if I have 1 follower I'll keep writing my blog for me, because my mommy will always read what I've written... she never comments though, so I love it when I get feedback from other bloggers... and other friends :) I think you're right about making sure your blog is about your voice... I've stopped reading some blogs because they are all about memes and not about the person anymore... I'll still follow you whether you write daily, weekly or sporadically :)

Your writing is wonderful- creative and funny, and real! But yes--for you,all about you, and only you! Your drama becomes our drama--and I love it! xoxo

Crazed Mama said...

Holla!! Thanks ladies for all the feedback and support...MUAH!

Danifred said...

Amen sister. I love that. Every now and then I have to refocus myself as well.

So I just saw that you commented back on my blog and I almost died. You are like a blog-ebrity to me and I had a moment of "holy crap she actually read MY blog?!?" Thanks so much for your very kind comment!
