Finding Balance

Role Mommy, as always, has said perfectly eloquently what I’ve been trying to find the words to say for so long. Words to explain WTH has happened to me and to me blog. So that you know what I’m talking about, I urge you to go read her post titled “Quitting Blogging” – it’s excellent! From her post, the lines that ring the most true for me is:

“At the end of the day, blogging should not be all consuming. And as you’re cruising for Facebook friends and Twitter followers, you should know that in your own home live the most important people who would really like to know your status right about now…”

I couldn’t agree more! I love blogging, I love writing, and yes I have gotten criticized about it from others who just don’t understand it. (For the record: I’ve also been criticized for my love of running, sports, exercise, health and nutrition too). But I’m going to continue doing all of those things, albeit randomly, because in my life I also have important people who live with me who care about my status at the moment more than any of my Twitter or Facebook friends ever will.

Yes folks – after 6 yrs of blogging I’ve found balance. My blog, my page rank and my brand may suffer but who cares? I’ve found balance and I couldn’t be happier than I’ve been these past few months. FINALLY!

  1. Good for you! When it was just me and one kid at home, I was really into it but now I post when i feel like it and that’s it. I make some money from it, but not enough to really care. It’s facebook that sucks me in.

  2. Could not agree more. I am constantly thinking about how much technology is interfering in our lives and how, whenever we have a free second, we check some account rather than enjoy the peace. Then we feel “overwhelmed” and “stressed” but it’s partly because we willingly bombard ourselves on a minute-to-minute basis. Plus I wonder what this teaches our kids, we wonder why so many have ADD when we clearly have it ourselves. Big article in the NY times recently on this stuff (technology re-wiring our brains). Cool blog.
