Hello! I am feeling much much better, and I will be getting back to posting normal. I found the route of the problem to continually feeling like death, and well I will talk about it more tomorrow 😉
Show me Sunday will start next Sunday with my first guest blogger, and continue on throughout February. Some of the posts I have already received make me so HAPPY! Which is what I want this blogger showcase to do for you too. Show you real life inspiration, and leave you a little more positive and motivated for Mondays.
I realized I avoid blogs that seem to post about incredible travels- all while sporting a look right off the Pinterest runway, sipping a fancy drink, in a place so exclusive they do not even reveal the name. I will indulge from time to time, but then I wonder how honest the blog. Good for them, I am going to go vacuum cat hair for the bajillionth time and avoid looking at the dishes in the sink. They just seem as real as reality TV and so when I search for bloggers to connect with, I tend to connect on a few different areas.
- Do they have the same health issues as me? ( see here for my randoms)
- Are they trying to lose weight? Or have they lost weight?
- Did they struggle getting pregnant?
- Do they seem to have the same quirky interests as me?
So those are definitely not what covers my broad love for reading others blogs, I just find myself connecting with some more quickly than others, and reading them religiously.
There are blogs I see that are popular and I just never seem to connect. I always end up looking at my screen saying ” Is this real life?!”
I know this sounds like envy or discouragement, but it isn’t. I may to blog about the ups and downs, but others don’t. Some don’t like to rehash the negative memory, or share something personal with the world that isn’t bright and shiny. That makes sense I guess for what they are branding their blog to be. I don’t quite understand claiming to write a personal blog, but sounding like one long winded advertisement with no real life content or emotion, but hey. I will just keep on scrolling. (and secretly pinning that I want my closet to look like theirs if I ever win the lottery..)
I was inspired today with this post, and the LeanGreenBean’s honesty. I never really got into her blog before, but this post resonated with me on so many levels. Her inspiration came from this letter to parents from a non-parent, and it is also an incredible read.
Blogging and its wide ranged community is something I am SO happy to be a part of, and I just thank those who inspire me with their honesty.
