Better to write for yourself...

I keep telling myself, "this will be the day I will start blogging regularly again," and then the day is over and I didn't write a thing. So even though I don't have a great post today, I figured I needed to make an effort to write something. Anything. Just to get back into the habit. I miss blogging, but I struggle with wanting to write something that is interesting to others and wanting to write for myself about the mundane, ordinary things going on in my life. So I've got to find a balance between the two. I remember reading somewhere that some well-known blogger ( I can't remember who though) said that voice is more important than content, I take that to mean I should let my voice be heard, even if what I'm writing is not important to anyone else. As Cyril Connolly said, "Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self." So if you find what I write boring, go away. It won't hurt my feelings.
I'm not going to try to write everyday, that would just be setting myself up for failure, but I am going to try to write more regularly.

Thanksgiving and Christmas and the whole holiday season was pretty good for us. I do have to admit that I'm glad it's over now though. We spent a lot of time with family and were out of town a lot, which I enjoyed, but it'll be good to get back into some kind of regular routine again.

I'm behind on blog reading again, but I'm slowly catching back up, and I'll try to start leaving more comments again. I hope you are all doing well, and staying warm in this cold weather.

if you notice, most of my posts deal with the mundane aspects of my life...trust me, other people find it interesting. Just be you....because after all, if they don't like you, then what's wrong with them? (that's my personal mantra!) Glad you are back to blogging!

I am always glad to see your "title" status change under your blog name. I was glad to get back into the routine of things after the holidays even if January always feels like the Monday of the year.

Some of the most interesting blogs are about plain ole' normal life.
