I did sign up with great enthusiasm for the 30day #UBC on #Blogchatter , but sadly this is my 2nd post for the same,while my other blogger friends are way ahead of me – posting promptly, reading and sharing interesting posts!
Not to be….
I have realised that blogging is time consuming and exhausting. Especially, when you are working full time as well as juggling too many things at one go!
Had planned to complete my pending posts,reviews etc.,. in this one week of vacation but household chores seem to beckon me from all directions. This morning, as I just sat down to type away my pending posts, my son comes calling and asks me to play with him for sometime. He also requests me to bake a cake for him.When I replied that I shall be with him in precisely 30mins , he cringed and went away murmuring something. Now as a mother, I started feeling guilty of neglecting my child and closed everything and went to him seeking to re-emphasise ‘Mother’s Love’.This scene has been played out umpteen times in the last 6 months since I started blogging, sometimes making me ponder over stopping blogging altogether.
But then, I have worked hard on implementing ideas by generating content on my blog slowly and sincerely. I have made some wonderful contacts and rapport with authors and publishers who have sincerely appreciated my honest reviews of their books. Have been reading some very interesting articles and been part of wonderful community of bloggers. I love reading books, interacting with people, widening my horizon, travelling and chronicling the experiences and pouring it all on my blog and I treat my blog as a baby. So how can I abandon this newly born?
With these skeptical thoughts of ‘To be or Not to be’ a blogger, I end this chat for today. This, as the promise of a ‘Home made Cake’ beckons me!. Do leave your thoughts on this post and share with me similar experiences of yours. So that, I find solace in the thought that I am indeed not neglecting my family in this pursuit of blogging my ideas and experiences.Ciao….
O.K …as I am wrapping up this post, my son is here with a change of mind. He wants a ‘Trifle pudding’ with cake and lots of custard! Phew…..
