I haven’t blogged, really blogged…shared photos, stories, in a while. The honest truth is this. Well, it’s multifold I suppose- but
1) why write when no one but me reads…I need to remind myself that when blogging, I’m “documenting”, as one of my Austria buddies used to say. I DO enjoy coming back to read, so why don’t I just write for me?
2) it’s undoubtedly harder to blog with no wireless internet in the house. I’m not even home that much to begin with. When I am home, it’s evening and I tend to read/just chill after work. On my (rare) days off, I am usually trying to clean/do laundry/errands, etc. All that boring stuff.
3) I’m too busy living life! Of course, right now that means working, babysitting, the occasional time with family or friends. Somehow, they still haven’t created an app for reading minds and blogging, which is really too bad. I’ve thought up some awesome things to write while driving.
4) Pictures. Oh, the pictures. I do intend…or at least have the best intentions, to share photos and memories from this summer and fall. But then I begin to try and sift through, to find which photos to blog and share, and it is extremely overwhelming. I easily take 1000+ pictures a month. Now, not nearly all of those are pictures that I can (many kid pics!) or want to share (really, you want to see an acorn I was shooting in the park?) but it’s still extremely time consuming to sort through, edit, save, post…plus, see #2 & #3.
But hey, with that dreaded winter thing coming shortly, it’s quite possible that I will have more time on my hands. Or maybe not…you never know!
How do you avoid becoming overloaded when it comes to online life? Any tips for me?
