I'm not a fan of PDW (public display of whining), but since it's IWSG day, I figure what the heck? This is the one post I can let it all out. Right?
Blogging or lack thereof is my insecurity for April's entry for Alex Cavanaugh's Insecure Writers Support Group. Thanks to our wonderful host, Alex and his helpers this month, Annalisa, Julie, and Elsie!
Okay, don't throw rotten tomatoes at me, but...
I'm not participating in the A to Z blog challenge. There, I said it.
It seems most of the blogging community is taking part in this awesome challenge. Last time I looked, over 1,960 bloggers had signed up! Kudos to the hosts! Those numbers are phenomenal!
Some of you have asked, don't you think it'll cut down on your comments, followers? Yes, it will. But at this point, I have to take those risks.
I've chosen not to participate for personal health reasons. Reasons that
make sitting at this computer almost unbearable. The same reasons have kept me away from Facebook, Twitter and visiting other blogs. I've tried to pop in here and there and say hello. But lately, I've had
to dedicate all of my computer time to writing & revisions.
Ultimately, the actual writing and getting the work done has to be numero uno.
I've come to love and admire and really care for many of my bloggy friends, and I can only hope a few return my sentiments. In the past month, I've cut down on the blogging, and I've already seen a huge drop in the comments.
But I need to act like a grownup. I need to be okay with this. And if I loose followers forever, well, I'll have to accept that, too. Please know, if I've followed you, you obviously rock, and just because I don't visit as often, doesn't mean I don't love you! Cuz, I still do. <3
To all of you bloggers out there participating, I wish you the BEST of luck with the challenge. Have fun! Get creative! Be inspired!
