The problem with blogging

I'm a little OCD when it comes to my blogs.  I say blogs because I have multiple ones.  I'm pretty much behind on all of them.  My ladies group and my book club ones are up to date, but that really just requires a monthly post on the what and where. 

When I get really tired or busy, I don't have (make) time to write.  I read all of my favorite blogs and love them to pieces but I don't get comments done like I would like and posts done on my own.  I start these blogs to be a place to keep memories for myself.  I love looking back at them and can't believe I have done it for as long as I have.  Some of them go back several years. 

When I am in one of these busy/ tired slumps... I miss important events and day to day thoughts and emotions.  I think of little things I would like to pop in and post...but don't let myself do it because I say (does anyone else talk to themselves this much) that I can't post that yet- I haven't written about such and such yet.  And then, I'm way way behind. 

This happened with my general family blog.  We took an amazing trip to Disney and that of course required a ton of time and thought to post about our wonderful trip.  I was doing good posting weekly updates and reviews on what we had done but got in a rut because I couldn't post anything until I had the Disney update done. 

Anywho... so that is my story (excuse).  I just updated my time line on the side bar and have several things that I haven't written about.  I also of course, have had quite a range of emotions during all of this.  I know I have forgotten some of it and this makes me sad. 

Our time with J and baby girl was so special.  I don't want these memories to fade, but I know they are not going to be the part of our life we had hoped. 

So, as I write a little about the events over the past two months- it will be brief.  I'm not going to stress about getting every little thing down.  Just like I never had the chance to write about our awesome birth/ hospital experience.  It was so much so fast, I thought I would be able to do it as baby girl was in my arms and a few weeks old. 

I love her so much. 


  1. something I've done to help w my trouble with the same problem is writing a date at the top of the post of when it actually happened. Sometimes the posts are out of order (drives me crazy at the moment but then I forget about it). I love your timeline :)

  2. I am the same way, in both my blogging and scrapbooking - make myself do everything chronologically and then end up forgetting important thoughts/emotions.
