I’m not going to talk much about food or my kiddies today but more on blogging. It was quite interesting reading your comments on the New Moon post. At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted to post it but now I’m glad I did. I appreciated and enjoyed reading your honest opinions and comments. I hesitated about posting it because I didn’t love the movie (and books) like a lot of people did. But I didn’t hate it either so I’m sorta in the middle. I know how much some people (particularly one person) did love this movie and I didn’t want to do a bad job writing a post on it and ruining it for them. And frankly, I was also afraid of starting a war in my comments box haha. After contemplating for a day I came to the conclusion that no matter what I write about, I’m never going to please everybody. Some people are going to like it, some people are going to dislike it, and some people may not have a clue as to what I’m talking about anyways.
As somewhat of a new blogger I have to remind myself that blogging should be about anything I want without having to worry that my readers will hate it. It shouldn’t be about making up stories and going with the flow trying to get as many readers as possible. Although getting comments and making many new friends are nice bonuses. Blogging should really be for myself, to relieve stress, to talk about my honest thoughts and opinions, and to enjoy a new hobby. So with that in mind I decided to blog about New Moon not caring if people were going to hate it or love it. Even though I’m not a big fan, I did have a great time with my friends (who threw an awesome party), my hubby and daughter, and had yummy food, so I think that’s definitely worthy of a post.
I see so many blogs out there that have 20 or more comments daily and I’m in awe that these people (you know who you are) are getting so many comments. I’d be lucky if I got 5 comments teehee. Kudos to all those bloggers. You’re definitely doing something right to be getting so many readers. As I read all these lovely blogs I started seeing something that they all had in common. All these bloggers are blogging straight from their hearts with honest opinions on all sorts of things. Whether it be food, clothing, books, movies, family, or even their life struggles, they’re speaking from experience and not making up stories just to attract an audience. I guess that’s why I’m so intrigued with reading other people’s blogs because unlike a fictional story, blogging is personal and real. With each day you learn something new about the person behind the writing. And also cause there is a nosey part of me who likes to vicariously live through other people’s lives (especially people who have no kids to chain them down and are free to travel and eat and do anything they want whenever they want) 😉
So with that said, I’d like to thank you for all your honest comments on my blog. Not just that but also for allowing me to follow your blogs and escape this hectic life of a mother and live life through your eyes for a while. I’d also like to thank those friends and family who do read but don’t comment. It means a lot to me that you’re taking the time out of your busy lives to get to know a little bit of mine. Gosh I felt like I was one of those actors/artists accepting an award after saying that. Again, only in the blogging world am I able to dream like that haha. Sorry, back to what I was saying. I’m still trying to figure out for myself if the blogging world and the real world can exist as one. What I mean by that is if I’m willing to announce my blog to ALL my friends and family yet cause so far I’ve only told a few close friends and very few family members. I guess I’ve rambled on enough for today so I’ll leave you with this thought. Do you think the blogging world and the real world can coexist “publicly”? If so, what made you want to share your blog with ALL your friends and family?
I’m craving for some smelly goodness right now. If you’ve had these you’ll know exactly what I mean by “smelly” haahaa. This picture was taken on my visit to Vietnam about 3 years ago. So much yummy food there. Off to look for a snack now 😀
Until next time again y’all. Hugs and
