I love blogging. I started when we were studying abroad as a family in Sweden in the beginning of 2009. It was a good way to keep everyone updated about what was going on thousands of miles away. Even before my blog were my journals. I filled dozens over the years. I recently found my very first diary. It was in Swedish and I was 7 I think.
I still love blogging. It's something I do for myself. And to show Jasper and Tindra some day. But really it's just a way for me to document our lives.
I also love finding and reading blogs that I connect to. Some of them are the 'big blogs' but many are small blogs that I love even more than those bigger blogs.
But lately, a lot of blogs have started to bug me. I feel like so many bloggers are doing things just to blog. Instead of doing things because they WANT to, I feel like some think 'oh we should go to this so I can blog about it.' And I could very well be wrong and just reading it that way. Totally possible. But it does turn me off to certain blogs.
If I ever become one of those bloggers, I hope I realize that's whats happening or someone cues me in. That will be the day my blog goes private or I stop blogging all together. I want to live and experience life with my family. And some of those moments get blogged about but so many don't. It doesn't make those memories or moments any less significant.
Am I the only one that feels this way? Do you ever get that feeling that some bloggers aren't experiencing life as much as they are writing about it?
