I am currently a little all over the place with this Blog. I am not sure what direction I want to go. I am a bit torn between lots of options to continue or stop blogging all together.
I was never a good writer, I actually dislike it. I never can find the right words to use and I am constantly deleting and starting over. The blog was started not because I like to write but because I wanted the accountability.
You see many people going on Facebook and declaring life changes they are making (eating better, working out, and so on). I started this blog for the same reason.
A blog is out of my comfort zone because I don’t like to be on computers in my spare time (I am on one all day at work). I usually only browse when I am on lunch or breaks from work. At home my use is for this blog, bill payments, and some fun browsing. Home use is very rare.
I grew up with a family who was mostly unplugged. We never had cable, only local TV stations. Never had a computer until I was in high school with super slow dial-up.
I grew up reading, drawing, and following my parents around. My family would watch movies together and have family dinners almost every night until I started high school.
I was lucky to have the family I have, they loved me unconditional as I was a child and still loves me the same today. I read an article recently about phone use and was upset to think that as a family Josh and I could make a huge mistake with our little one and not even know it until it is too late. Electronics are attention grabbing and taking our attention away from our lives and loved ones.
I want to continue my journey to save money, live with less, and share changes. But to be a good blogger with followers means you have to read other bloggers posts, comment and stay current. blogging is a community. I am not an active participant as much as I wish I could be.
Being a working mom, I want to spend my nights as a family. I want my son to grow up how I grew up. With parents not addicted to electronics and who are active participants in my life.
I am conflicted.
