A post about why I neglect to post...

So it's been almost a month since my last post. And that's been bothering me. Not that I think I could be one of those people who posts daily (at least not right now in my life) but it is a goal of mine to make time to post what's on my mind.

Sometimes I neglect to post because of lack of words. literally. sometimes I just have nothing to say.

Sometimes I neglect to post because I'm just way too busy. which is often. but if I didn't post for the simple reason that I'm too busy, then I would never post...

I mean seriously. sometimes I just can't make sense of everything going on in this mind of mine. I get ideas for blog posts all. the. time. but it's hard for me to focus on one at a time. I get overwhelmed. kinda like lorelai in the clip below. [ignore poor quality]

Sometimes I neglect to post because my words/ideas seem insignificant. I'll come up with something I want to say, but by the time I sit down at the computer to type, it seems ridiculous. it seems silly, because this is my blog. my space. and it should reflect me - no matter how insignificant I may feel. yet the self critic inside of me finds a way to talk me out of posting things that in no way stand up to the kinds of posts I read from others.

So there it is. That's what's on my mind right now. :)


  1. Hey - having nothing to say or too many things to say never slowed Brad down. And I doubt he ever deemed his blog efforts unworthy of publication. You're cute, Lesley!

  2. I just re-read your intentions post and this post and I wanted to tell you, that your post are not insignificant. even on days where you can't "narrow" down your thoughts you could share. Just write. we are your family and friends and we won't judge your words or your grammar. We just want to know what your heart is thinking :)
