Ok wait, I don’t really wish I was a different blogger, cuz honestly, I think I’m pretty awesome, BUT I do wish I had some of the qualities of the people I
stalk, follow, adore online. I was catching up on tons of blogs and realized I was suffering from B.I.S.
Blogger Inadequacy Syndrome. I hear it strikes bloggers when they overdose on awesome blogs. There is no cure….though I tried Oreos and milk. (it kinda helped)
First off, I wish I took my camera everywhere with me and snapped pictures of the random stuff I do so I can tell you guys without being boring. Faith is really good at this, even if her hubby’s not always the happiest at being in a photoshoot all the time. John’s a ham so he wouldn’t mind. But I’m SO forgetful about that daggone camera…and my cameraphone for that matter. It’s always with me, but I forget about it.
I wish I was crafty so I could post how-tos of adorable baby clothes and decorations like Jen. But I’m sure if I even thought about buying a hot glue gun I’d find a way to glue my hand to my cheek or something.
I wish I did more hair posts like Nikki and Loo and JC and … ok this one would be a long list, but I wish I remembered to take pics of the cute (and the notsocute) things I do with my hair and give tutorials and chronicle the natural journey like I used to.
I have to stop and remember why I choose to continue blogging as a hobby. Yeah, it’s partly to chronicle life, have something to look back on, to show my kids like, “look mommy used to be hot and skinny!” And yeah it’s partly to fill a need to share, to connect and learn, to write, to entertain, to be a narcissist on some level. And I love that it’s partly to meet great new friends near and far – a happy byproduct that I didn’t expect!
But ultimately it’s for me. It IS me. Just in blog form. So I’ll let Jen and Mrs H and all of them be them, and keep churning out my random b.s. and babyobsessiveness cuz that’s me. And I’m a good blogger dammit! (Even when I disappear for a week or so……right?……right?….Beuler?)
That said, please let me know if there’s anything that you want to see more of on this blog, or never want to see again! I’d LOVE to hear your input. I have a few posts that were too personal to share so I just published it private, so I see it when I check my blog but others can’t. If there are certain types of posts a bunch of you don’t dig, I’ll just post those privately going forward.
Are there any bloggers you admire? Any changes you’d like to see here on OK, Dani? Have you made any changes to your blog recently?
