Blog funk

I think the title says it all.

I’m in a weird blog funk. I’m still here, blogging, adding my thoughts and photos. Getting better at the photos. But I can’t help but feel like there’s something missing.

I’m not sure what that something is but I’m thinking it could be my spunk. Has blogging about my daughter made me boring? Ordinary? I would say I have other better things to blog about but I kind of don’t.

I’m not in the mess of birth and baby drama and controversy like I felt like I was stuck in for a while. My baby is sleeping just fine in her own room, I’m not organic obsessed and we’re still breastfeeding, but no one elses’ opinions on those things are going to change what I’m doing. And I don’t really feel like arguing to get people to believe what I believe about those things because really?–There are more important things in life.

It used to be that I’d blog about random things. Wanting a kid, not wanting a kid. Humorous things involving my decision whether or not to have a kid. And now I’ve got one. And some things are funny, but most things are “you had to have been there” kind of things. And, you know how when you don’t have kids, when moms stat talking about their kids and what they’re doing you kinda nod and go “aaah” but really you’re thinking “so what?” well, I’m beginning to wonder if that’s what’s happening here.

If I blog and say “OMG!! I told her to kiss her teddy bear and guess what? SHE DID IT!!” Are yall gonna be like “so? …. Tell me the story about how you flooded the bathroom again.”

But then part of me is like “who cares… It’s MY BLOG!” but when several hundred of you get this blog delivered to your email every morning, and even more than that subscribe, I don’t want to let you down! Is that lame?

Truth is, I’m not SUPER good at any one thing. I’m ok at a lot of things. I’m ok at writing, I’m ok at taking pictures, I’m a sucky cook (but I’m learning), so I can’t really post cute recipes because I can hardly follow them, much less make them up myself.

I’m not very stylish and I don’t feel like posting pictures of myself or my un-stylish home every day. I think I’m a good mom, but bad at knowing all the rules about being healthy and what not. I’m a good lover. NOT in a “I shouldn’t be blogging about this” kind of way, I mean I shower my family and friends with lots of love. I love loving!! I’m a loving person. Got it?

Anyway, I hope I’m not boring anyone to death blogging about Lil’ J all the time. I figure it’ll be hers to read some day. I would blog about my journey to #2 but I’m trying not to think about that right now (but things like this video makes that hard). This could change soon, but I’m just enjoying my #1 right now. And my cute hubby who starts his new job MONDAY!

And chilaxing.

And laughing at Toddlers and Tiaras.

And Teen Mom.

And attempting to get Lil’ J to be the next Baby GAP model.

And devising a plan to rule the world.

I’m a busy woman.

Anyway (again) forgive my slight funkiness (I’m not talking about my smell). I’m feeling a little lost (blog wise… and sorta life wise, but not as much) but hopefully I’ll find my way soon. Don’t leave me k? I need company out here in Crazyland. I’ll be back.

    OH- and I’m moving down your way in december. so playdate? lol

  3. I don’t think there is a blogger out there who doesn’t go through this. I think I feel like I’m in a blogging funk more often than not these days, yet people still (for the most part) have something to comment. Also, I think you don’t give yourself enough credit. I think you are a great blogger AND a fantastic photographer. If I didn’t admire your photos so much I’d probably be jealous of you. πŸ™‚

  4. I think this blog is amazing. I read your blog daily and while I have sat back awhile and focused on other projects, I have been away from blogging. This blog is honest and I love reading about your journey being a mother and a wife. When someone writes from the heart that is when you are at your best…so thanks for this blog. I have now began to love your blog even more πŸ™‚

  5. I love your blog too!

    I often feel the same way, but I have less than 10 people who actually read my blog so I don’t have to worry so much about being boring. I do it mainly for myself and my children.

    Are you planning on publishing your 365 photos into an actual book?? I would definitely buy it if you did!!

  6. I have never comment before, but I love reading your blog. lil’ J is adorable and I love your pictures of her. I have a little girl who will be 1 on the 26th and sometimes I feel the same way about my blog. But since our girls are around the same age I love looking at pics of lil’ j.

  7. I love reading your blog even if you think it might be boring I definitely don’t. But I do think that you have a new adventure to blog about: Your hubby going back to work, meaning you are both working. As a future working mom I’m curious to know about the dynamics of the situation. It’s always nice to be able to see it through people’s eyes as it’s happening. Kind of a learning experience for me. So I appreciate anything you write that you might think is boring. It definitely will be helpful to this future mama.

  8. I love your blog too! I’m not a mom yet but I really enjoy reading about your experiences…and, I get to bookmark things (like the Sugar Sweet Baby wrap) that I might like when I do have a baby. Keep on doing what you’re doing! πŸ™‚

  9. I love reading your blog no matter what you decide to write about. Lil J is an important part of you and don’t have to feel sorry to write about her.

    Your posts are not boring at all.

    I am here and never going to leave you :).

  10. Oh my god i’m going to punch you in the face.
    People don’t read your blog for you to be amazing at something, or have crazy stories every day.

    We’ve bought in to YOU. We dig YOU. We dig your daughter, and we dig your blog.

    So shut up and blog whatevertheheckyouwant for us to read.



  11. Dani thanks for the punch! You rock! haha. I know I shouldn’t care if people care what I write about but I feel like I owe it to yall to be entertaining but it’s SO MUCH PRESSURE! And lame that I’m putting that pressure on myself cause seriously… It’s just a blog.

    But I’m glad yall dig me still. πŸ™‚

    Thanks ma!

  12. couldve fooled me about being in a funk. i think you are doing a great job and you really need to remember it is YOUR blog!!! As long as you are happy doing it, you are doing the right thing, never worry about catering to anyone else, mmkay?? you do enough entertaining at work πŸ™‚ I’ll still be here!

  13. i am a new follower and i truly enjoy your blog … only reason why i would follow a blog is because i am actually interested in them … if you are in a funk, you’ll get out of it … but either way, i’ll be here reading away and enjoying the post.

    p.s. i have no children but i enjoy when mom’s talk about their kids … i love seeing pictures of babies but then again, who in their right mind doesn’t?

  14. Honestly, I like your blog because you keep it real. I mean, I don’t think I’ve seen another blog chronicle cankles! That’s a part of pregnancy that just isn’t pretty but makes us obsess constantly about our feet morphing into our legs. You don’t have to be perfect at everything just to post it. With parenting, what’s mundane to other’s is pretty darn special to us. Share those moments! You’re right, it’s your blog, say what you want.

  15. i LOVE the honesty of this post! I think everyone get to this point with their blog. I agree with the other commenters – It’s your blog, do what you wanna do! We’re reading πŸ™‚

  16. So I just stumbled upon your blog via another blog and as a career woman and first time mommy to a 6 month old I must say I LUV your blog! I have been reading it for hours this weekend!! I can really relate to everything you are posting, especially this. I too have a blog for my baby but it’s only viewable by folks who I give the password to. In the beginning I was full of baby stories and adorable milestones. I snapped photos every day and posted them all!! Now at 6 months I am starting to feel like, is this getting old? Do people really care anymore? I do know that my family and close friends who don’t live in this state appreciate being able to see my daughter grow and change but it still sometimes feels like I am β€œpushing” it on them. Anyway, I wanted to tell you to keep up the blogging and photo posting. Your daughter is ADORABLE and I love your insight and experiences.

  17. Like you said, this is your blog. One of the things that attracted me to your blog was that you always seemed to write for yourself and not us readers so to speak. I think that you should continue to do so. Writing about what you want to share and not what people want to hear is what makes this blog so unique and interesting. And if it gets boring so what! Life can’t be all drama and excitement 24/7.

    We have what I like to call ‘Humble Moments’ when life seems to slow down and we can sit back and just enjoy the simplicity of everything. I’m here for the long haul.
