I find myself waking up at night with ideas for blogposts. Funny thing is... by morning, the wonderfully crafted, witty blogposts I have slaved over all night long in my dreams, have poofed. Vanished.
Seems there is some kind of jam up in my head, I have so much to say, but where do I start?
At the beginning , Ter.
So what I would like to say today is that the Ultimate Blog Party sucks. Kidding. Kidding. Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.
I'll admit when I signed up and submitted my "party" entry, I was a little nervous. Normally a pretty confident person, there are few things that do fluster me. Having people read, and possibly not like my writing, is one of them.
I've been blogging here and there for over a year, oh gosh, maybe it has even been two, and my little blog hasn't gotten noticed much. Okay I haven't really tried to get it noticed much. It was a huge and scary step just to put it on my facebook page so my friends would know it existed. Heck my husband hasn't even read it--he's only read a few posts to make sure I wasn't offending anyone, before I let them fly.
But sending my little blog out into the world for a bunch of "real" bloggers to read was scary.
And yes, I've been feeling a little underdressed at this party. My blog doesn't have all the bells and whistles that most of the "real" bloggers have. Most have custom template designs, a lot have customized theirs with adorable little avatars and lovely graphics, they have sponsors, and offer free stuff. Or they do product reviews and wow everyone with giveaways and giftcards.
I don't even have anything to sell.
It's just me. My words. My life (and I have to admit, my life is pretty ordinary compared to some of those partying at the UBP). The fact that people make money blogging about their lives, blows my mind. And makes me a bit envious, too. You go girls!
So this won't sound like much to the "real" bloggers, but I am doing a happy dance over it, I have 28 followers now. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And there are some of you who have commented, and who's blogs I have read, who have made this step of sending my little blog out into the world a whole lot easier.
My husband comes home from working a show in Las Vegas today. I missed him. Thanks UBP for filling my week with new friends.
P.S. And one of these days... the log jam of thoughts in my brain will open up. Look out world.
