The blogging in-crowd @Britmums #pbloggers
These are just my thoughts and I know that some of them are just a reflexion of my own insecurities but I have to voice them.
Sometimes I feel like I’m an outsider to this whole blogging community. I know I blog. And I do sometimes read and comment on other blogs but generally I don’t have much time to do that. Not since I started my new job anyway. For instance, this evening I read an email newsletter from Britmums all about the New Year. I clicked in a few of the links and read up on what other bloggers have been up to. Instead of making me feel interested and curious it made me feel deficient & less if a blogger.
I went to Brit mums last year and I am going again this year and while I had a brilliant time and came back buzzing, I did feel a little inferior to some of the “Power Bloggers” that ran it, won awards etc. yes, I’m jealous. I’ll admit it. I want my blog to be something big and to make me some money and to get noticed (not necessarily in that order) but right now it takes all my energy to live life and occasionally chuck a blog post out there. I guess I need to get over it. Admit to myself that I can’t do or have it all. That no matter how successful other bloggers are they presumably have areas in THEIR lives that they are not happy about. People are just people. No matter how daunting their success might be.
I may not be part of the “in” blogging crowd. I may not spend all day and night browsing and commenting on other people’s blog post, but I’m still here. Still blogging from the heart. Putting myself out there.
Thank you for sticking with me.
