Blogging World - not so much!

I have been negligent with my blog. But I am just really disillusioned by the whole blogging world as a whole. It just seems like a bunch of people talking on and on about themselves and I find that to be really narcissistic and ridiculous. Don't get me wrong I have "met" some really amazing people and I appreciate you but I don't know if I am going to continue writing HERE in this forum. I will keep writing cause it is good for me, but yesterday I posted TWICE, once about suicide and once about reckless and dangerous driving. Not one person commented and I don't know if anyone read it, except for maybe one facebook friend. So I am just "too through" as we say in my office. Have fun bloggers, I am tired.
And to make matters worse the blogger site is always acting up and not acting right. Ugh!

  1. I have only just now got to my reading list so I will confess I havent even read yesterdays posts.
    I am sorry you are feeling like all anybody cares about are themselves. Some days it can feel like that.
    As far as just bloggging about oneself, well I plead guilty. My blog is my journal. I dont promote it as anything else.
    Sometimes serious subjects are difficult to comment on. They require more consideration. It doesnt mean they dont get read.

    Bloggers little glitches and frustrations were one of the motivating factors for moving my blog to wordpress. I hope you keep writing despite feeling disillusioned

    1. Thanks Mynx! I think I was just feeling negative and frusttrated and exhausted. I was really enjoying posting and gaining followers in 2010 and 2011, but since being pregnant and having a baby, I am just too busy. But I will probably still post when I can.

  2. Eeeeek! People talking on and on about themselves is the reason why I love the blogworld so much! LOVE IT! But I have a baby myself, so finding the time to interact with other bloggers has been difficult at best. But rest-assured that whenever I have a chance (RARE!), then I am here! :o)

  3. I haven't gotten many comments on anything lately.
    I don't know if I have seen those articles. If I read a post I comment. I was in the ER yesterday morning and at the cardiologist today so I must have missed them.

  4. sometimes blogging is so fun and other times it feels heavy and stupid. i read both of your posts from the other day, but i just didn't have anything to add to it. sometimes sad or frustrated leaves with me nothing to say since i don't know what to say. i don't want to say the wrong thing & make it worse.
    sorry.

    1. Thanks Sherilin, you have always read faithfully and I appreciate that! I think that day it just felt too "heavy and stupid" and almost pointless for me. But I will get back to when it feels fun again, I hope! :)

  5. Ladies - I am sorry that I got frustrated I guess when I finally wanted to use this forum for stuff that I thought people should listen to and care about I felt like no one was reading or caring. I haven't been posting at all and that is my fault. Just having a negative, stinking thinking kind of day. I appreciate that you guys understood where I was coming from.

    1. i think that our blogs are our own and we can write whatever we feel like writing. the problem is, if we attract most of our readers to our blogs with light-hearted stuff that's happy and then we change to sad, angry, or frustrated writing, we lose a lot of the people we attracted in the first place. i've found that on my own blog, if i write about a more serious topic, i get very little feedback, so i usually save those thoughts for my friends or family in real life. because they don't just love me for my silly stories, they actually care about what i think.
