on writing...

I tend to want to come here and write more often than every four or five days, but I just can't seem to get here.  When I'm busy with washing dishes, painting, knitting or pulling weeds in the garden, I compose wonderful blog posts in my head.  Yet when I sit down at the computer, it's just crickets.

It's not as if I lead an exciting life, jetting off to here and there, or doing daring feats of amazement.  I'm just little old me, spending a lot of time piddling around with this or that and trying to live each day as fully as I can.  

Writing my blog has always been about writing for me, mostly.  I've always looked at those who come and read my words as, well, a bonus really.  That someone out there in the big, wide world would take a part of their day to read what I've written is a wonderful thing.  I always feel I have such little to offer that I get a little giddy when I realize someone out there is reading.  

Sometimes I feel I should be writing more for the lovely people who come here to visit with me and writing less for me.  But then I get so worried.  How is my grammar?  Did I spell that correctly?  Have I used this word too much?  Can't I think of a better word than that?

It becomes an endless stream of anxiety and that is very, very bad. 

So, I'll keep coming here when I can.  I'll keep finding words to share, whether they matter or not.  Sometimes, when I don't have words, I'll just post a photo.  I guess the most important thing for me to remember is that I like being here.  It makes me happy, and that is really the point.

thanks for stopping by, 
love & blessings

ps...this is not the post I came here to write.  it happens to me a lot, I'll start writing something and get carried off to another tangent completely.  oh well, i guess it needed saying.  :-)  xo

I enjoy visiting you and never question your grammar. I know I make plenty of mistakes. I tend to use Blogger as a way of writing out my feelings. It's healing for me to get them out there. Keep blogging for you, and I will keep coming.

Such is life. We have all sorts of plans and then life gets in the way. But, that's okay - taking time to garden, bake and paint are just as important as writing. And by the way, all the baking you did recently is mouth watering. You've inspired me.
Enjoy the rest of your week.

Wow I resonate with your post completely. I'm a shy nervous blogger, don't connect much with people in the real world but feel comfort in the blogging community. Blessed Equinox, don't worry when it comes to writing, do what your heart feels for that's when your essence shines, and hey you got a new follower!
