The big bad blog

One of my favorite things to do is to read other people's blogs. I love the pictures, the wit, the stories, the humor, the baring of one's soul. Whenever I find a good blog I feel like I'm taking a peek into someone's diary or looking in their window at their happy little family life. (okay, not in a creepy stalker way, I'm not like that) Waa ha ha! (enter spooky count dracula voice) Okay, seriously, one thing I noticed tonight is that doing this is not always good for the bloggers soul. At least not this bloggers soul. But then it is too. Have I made myself clear? Waa ha ha!

Okay, I must be tired or nuts or both or finally learning to let my guard down and let the words drip out of my fingers. I have always loved to read. I have always wanted to be a writer. Have I done anything towards that goal except for read way too many books? Nope. Do I really think I can be a writer? Nope. Well, at least not after reading all of these amazing blogs. Okay, weird. I read lots of books. Does that make me feel like I can't be a writer? Nope. But reading blogs does??? Wazzup widat?

I'm surfing around and these little words are running around my, how clever, wish I'd thought of, I always thought I was at least moderately creative but.....where does she come up with this stuff?...... I know, boohoo poor me, I am not the wittiest most creative and amazing blogger in the bloggy universe! Not that I honestly ever thought I was. (I know that another blog giveaway this book is sooo wonderful...... is engaging prose) but anyway, where am I going with this? Hmmm..... umm......Oh yeah! People are amazing!!! Lately I have been thinking a lot about the people in my life and how amazing they are. Each person I come into contact with wether IRL or in the webby universe are so unique and special and just darn stinkin incredible!

Why do I suddenly have this love for mankind after my pessimistic post a couple days ago? Dunno, maybe it was going to church today and hearing some things I needed to hear. Maybe it's the fact that life moves on and we make the best of it. Maybe it's the fact that I am realizing that I am blessed beyond measure and that I need to change my pessimistic ways. All I know is that blog surfing tonight has settled my soul and filled my heart with a love for mankind. Tra la la la la........

Convinced I'm crazy yet?


  1. I'm with ya girl! I love finding interesting posts and I love looking at pics of everyone's beautiful families!! By the way, Check out the recent pics I had taken of my 4 plus my nephew!

  2. If you're crazy, then for sure I am too.

    What you say about feeling intimidated about writing after reading blogs rather than writing is so interesting. I think I am the same way. And I think it's because on blogs we can see how we're sooooo similar to some people, and yet, not quite as good at crafting or cooking or taking photos (my personal sob story right now), or writing or whatever.

    I remember when I first read Twilight, and feeling almost betrayed that here was this fellow Mormon/BYU grad/mother of 3 who somehow managed to write a whole book. And what have I been doing with my life?? ARGH.

    Church is always good for the ARGH.

  3. I'm totally with you! I hated writing so much in high school that I refused to take any English classes in college. Yet here I am blogging....

  4. I remember having(and filling up)journal after journal when i was a teen. These days..Not so easy. I often wonder where my creative mind went?!?
    I enjoy reading your writings and think you are doing a great job:)

  5. Well, I think you are highly readable! I love your chatty ways. Funny thing about blogging is that even though you might not think you are a you are! If you have readers, then you are a writer. Easy as that!

    breathe in the comment. :)


  6. I enjoy your down-to-Earth, humanistic writing style... It's nice.

  7. Sometimes, it's okay to be down. You've always got to remember to pick yourself up though. Tomorrow is always a new day. KWIM? I love your blog! It's gives me warm fuzzies...and not in that weirdo stalker kinda way!! :)

  8. Ya know, I was never intimidated either until I started reading blogs. Some people are so fabulously poetic it makes me doubt that I could ever flow like that. But I feel ya. I really do. But you should totally write a book anyway. I'd read it!


Comments are the bloggy air I breathe, but please keep my air clean.
