I Think, Therefore I Blog About It

I seem to always have some thoughts rumbling around in my head. Some are deep thoughts and some are well, weird. Anyway, here are some thoughts in no particular order. Do you ever suffer from "blogging anxiety"? This is when you want to do a blog post and you have a million questions swarming around? Like, will they like it? Will anyone comment? Etc. Then you write something and people comment and follow you. Great! Wonderful! Then you get nervous again and wonder, will they come back? Will they comment again? Etc.

Have you ever given much thought to weeds? I hate them and it is all I can do to not pull them up in public places. I often wonder, though, how they feel. I mean their only purpose in life is to afflict and torment us.

Sometimes I think about the atonement of Jesus Christ. The garden and the cross. I wonder how it all happened, what it felt like and what was going through his mind. I also would like to ask him 2 questions. Was what you went through worth it just for me? If you had to do it again just for me, would it be worth it? I really hope that the answer would be yes and that I have lived my life well enough so he would say yes.
This leads me to my last though.(This is suppose to be under the picture but things aren't working out...scream, scream) One Sunday the Sunday School teacher asked the class this question. What would you like to be remembered for? Okay, that's easy. I could make a list. But then the kicker came in when he asked what are you doing to see that you are remembered like this? Oops!
Well, there they are. What are you thinking about? (this is also to be at the bottom-more screams heard)

I still get blogging anxiety. Not every post, but certain ones.

To be remembered for kindness- that sounds like a great goal to strive for.

Susan Anderson said...

I agree with Shell. I'd like to be remembered for kindness.

And wisdom.

And patience.

(I have some work to do!)

Blog for you and don't worry so much. People may not read each one that you post but they will come back.

Weeds...hate 'em. :) And for the record, I truly believe you will always be remembered for your kindness.

Its normal to have "blogger anxiety" when you are a new blogger. The process will become more easier with time. Just post content that interests you. People will often be attracted to authentic material than just fluff stuff...I love your posts.

Hi there!

I'm a new follower from the 40+ Blog Hop!

I have blogging anxiety all the time. I always wonder if I write what is truly on my mind, will I offend someone, etc. etc.

And I LOVE how you did your drawing for your prize! LOL!

Have a great weekend!

Re: blogging anxiety, I am continually surprised at which posts people respond to (I just never know!) I think it's important to continue writing and discovering your own voice, despite the number of comments (or lack thereof). Some of my favorite posts received the least comments; some posts that I just dashed out and didn't put much thought into received the MOST feedback!
