I don't know how you good little bloggers do it

It's 11 pm.

I am tired.

I have a busy day ahead tomorrow.

I have 28 unread e-mails.

I don't even want to know how many unread blog posts are in my reader. (They are probably all yours, but because I haven't been visiting your blog, you probably aren't visiting mine, either, and so of course you don't know this.)

Another day I have failed as a blogger.


On an up note, someone on the Bustin' Out Babies list "graduated" last week. I have added several bloggers since I started the list about a month ago, and there's room for more! If you know someone expecting a baby or if you had a baby in 2008, I'm happy to add to the list.

guess I'm not a "good" blogger because I don't do it. I can go an entire week without posting. And sometimes go that long before catching up on all my blog reading. Which means I often post comments days after a post was actually made.

And you know what, I'm okay with that. I started blogging as something fun to do. So I do it when I want to. I never feel obligated to. Because then it's not fun anymore.

So don't beat yourself up. It's all good! We're all more normal than you give us credit for.

I usually catch up all at once too! And I have my favourites that i always go to. I use to get really upset about it, now I figure they will love me or not and in the end it is just a blog. Our families and lives are more important!

Things happen and some readers may come and go. You need to blog when you want. Even without comments you need to know that people (like me) are still reading :) I am just as guilty at playing catch up on lots of e-mail and pushing the marked as read button on some items in my Google Reader. . . such is life.

Hang in there and keep smiling!

That's what I like about blogging--the ebbs and flows. It will flow soon. And then ebb. And it's still good.

I have been SO far behind for SO long... it seems impossible to catch up! Don't worry, it happens to all of us!

Me too, me too. And when the internet eats the few comments I try to leave and takes 45 minutes to upload one photo, I'm just ready to throw in the towel.

Hang in there, we're with you!

I go through the same thing. My bloglines is about to burst and I'm behind on blog reading and commenting. Then, when I have some time, I wonder, "Do I use this time to write or to comment? If I don't comment, no one will read what I write..." Ugh!

You haven't failed as a blogger. You're doing just fine.
