It's easy for me to get caught up in what this blog 'should' be. I feel like I'm being pulled in a million directions and I can't find one that suits me.
It takes forever for me to finish and publish a post, simply because I need it to be perfect...or as close as it can possibly be. I feel like every post should be medium-length; not too long, but definitely not too short. It should have pictures, but not too many. Why do I feel that way? Why can't I write just a few sentences and consider that enough? I've struggled with this for as long as I've blogged, and I'm just over it. There are huge gaps of time when I haven't blogged, and it's because I haven't had the time to write the kind of post I feel like I should write. I can spare a few minutes a day to write something, but I just don't have the time to pour over it, edit, reread, and edit again.
So forget that. I'm over it. I like blogging, and, as much as I love looking at the blog stats for readers, I'm really doing it for myself. I'm going to stop putting myself in a box, and just blog. Short or long, bullets or paragraphs, pictures or no pictures--I'm just going to blog. And it will be okay.
