I used to be a faithful bloggy friend. I did. I used to read every post that all my bloggy friends posted and I tried to comment on every post I read. But then life threw some curve-balls at me. And I started some new projects that have been taking a lot of my time. I found it was becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the 125 blogs I was subscribed to. Many of whom publish a new post every day. Some more than once a day. I've been stressed. Overwhelmed. And I started to drop off on the reading and commenting. And I haven't read any posts in the last several days. My Google Reader currently has 905 unread posts and the number keeps getting higher.
I'm feeling incredibly guilty about it too. Because you all keep reading my blog and commenting and I'm not commenting on yours. And then I wonder if I should go back to having no comments, to make it fair. (though I very much enjoy reading the comments I get)
And then I wonder if I should keep my blog going. Or cut back. You may have noticed that I stopped writing on weekends for the most part.
For now I've decided to keep my blog going. Because I love it. And I love you guys. And being able to document my life this way helps me to process and deal with life. And the support I've received from you all has meant more to me than you know.
I don't know when or even IF things will lighten up, allowing me to be a good bloggy friend again.
If you decide to keep reading my blog, thanks for sticking with me even though I'm a bad bloggy friend right now. If you decide to stop reading, I completely understand.
Whew! I feel a lot better after having gotten this off my chest.
Now don't forget to leave me a comment.
