...is undergoing an identity crisis as I try to reestablish its purpose in life. You'll notice I haven't been writing much lately, and it's not that I don't have much to say. Rather, it's that I haven't had a desire to blog.
So that led me to question what my original intention was in starting to blog. (Actually, hubby started it for me, and then I cruelly took over.) Originally, since our second child was just born, we wanted an easy way to show family and friends pictures of our kiddos and post some family updates. But then the realization that I enjoy writing crept up on me, and I figured I'd have a captive audience on which to unload my thoughts. It became an outlet, as well as a very effective way to make up for the fact that my dislike of the phone is growing in direct proportion to the number of times I've given birth.
However, after two years, I'm realizing things are different now, and I'm wondering if it's even worth it to keep up the intent to blog. (Personally, I figure that a blog that only has a new entry every couple of weeks is probably a hassle to those that are faithful enough to keep checking back for new posts.)
I'm also realizing that I need to cut back on my computer time in general. I've started limiting myself to being on during the kids' naptime, or after their bedtime so as not to cut into my time with them. But even then, I do feel like the combination of reading all the gazillion blogs I'm into, as well as needing to take care of basic computer tasks, is a bit too much. There's definitely a need to cut back somewhere. So should it be my own blog, I wonder?
I do like to write, but there are other avenues for that.
I do like to post pictures, but emailing through Shutterfly would be just as effective.
Please don't take this as whining, or an attempt to fish for compliments. It's neither...just something for me to think about.
