(Here's my photo of the week, in case you need something pretty to look at!)
#1. Too much of a good thing, can actually be bad. Yes, I do love to blog. My little blog here has been a help to me in so many ways. It connects me with people with my same interests. It has helped build up my confidence in myself and what I love to do tremendously. But, alas, there is such a thing as too much blogging. Does anyone else out there ever feel totally saturated with the craft blog world? I get so much inspiration from all the other craft blogs out there, but when I spend too much time looking, I get saturated.
Plus I have vowed to never let myself get carried away and throw my life out of balance for my blog. I love it, but I still have to make time for the most important things.
#2. There are a lot of really nice people out there. Seriously, I have yet to come in contact with anyone who was not nice! It has restored my faith in the good people out there. I have heard of some kind of blog bullies going around and making mean comments on some blogs, but I have yet to have that happen to me. Maybe my blog is too small to get the attention of those meanies- I hope it stays that way.
#3. Blogging is a good way to connect with people if you be yourself. I've had chances to get to know a few people and a little about them through blogging. I've even had some chances to bear my testimony of what I know is true and what is important to me. It feels good to be able to do that.
#4. You can't follow everyone! I struggle with this because I see so many great blogs out there and I want to follow them all, but that brings me back to point #1. I could never possibly keep up with all of that. So, as much as I don't like it, I have to pick and choose.
So those are my thoughts about blogging for the moment. What have you learned about blogging?
