I have to get back to blogging. I really do miss it, but I’ve let a small comment made stop me, second guess myself about it all.
Blogging, at first I thought, “I can’t do this. I can’t even stick to write a journal on a regular basis. And then to have the nerve to write about things, sewing/quilting things at that. What do I know?” But that was the start for me. “what do I know?” Nothing…and I thought I would share with people my misadventures in sewing. My bags with handles that are 4″ different in length. The pig stuffie that looks like, well I’m not sure. I thought I would share with people things that I learnt that might help them. I figured if people saw me do it, then maybe they could do it too.
I wanted to blog so that I could keep in contact with people that I don’t see often and they can keep up to date with what I am doing. I also wanted a chance to get connected with people in the sewing/quilting community and feel the support from that community and can reach out for help.
However, as I mentioned I received a comment from someone that put the brakes on. I shouldn’t have let it, I should have just let it pass but I didn’t.
There is someone I know whom I told I had a blog. I share the link to it with the hopes that they might check it out and see what I was up to. Instead, I got a comment about “I tried to read it, but who really can be bothered, the time, I mean.” I was kind of taken back. Maybe I misinterpreted it, but I took it as they weren’t interested in supporting me.
So I took a break. And every time I start to blog, I remember it and I stop and save the post in my drafts. Waiting for another day. I just think – what if other people think that too.
I love the blogging community. My Google Reader if full of blogs of all sorts of content. Some that inspire me, some that have incredible projects or tutorials, and some that make me laugh and cry.
With all that said, I am back.
