Anyone out there?

After a long evening of reading through other peoples blogs I find myself here, at mine...wondering...Is anyone out there...reading mine? Is my blog really worth the time and effort like other people put into theirs? 

Yes, I know, to all of my whole 8 followers, you are thinking, I'm here. And yea, I know you are and I am thankful for you.  However...really? I mean, what is my blog writing for anyways?  As you can see I have not posted much at ALL (starting back from when I first began). I guess I feel like it is a little bit of wasted effort for me.  I mean really, my blog is not the only way I communicate with my family so I can't really say it is for them.  And my personal friends out there, well I see and talk with them on a often enough occation for us to "keep up" with each other.  So that leaves everyone people really care about what I have to say, my family, my thoughts, yadda yadda yadda?

Sharing is really hard for me becasue I am a really private person.  I am so private that I don't even like keeping a journal or diary for me to share with myself later in life.  I have so many thoughts that run through my head all the time but they are never spoken or written down.  I am not sure way I am like this.  Just am. I still have to consciously make an effort to communicate and share with my hubby on a daily basis, after almost 17 years of marriage.

Maybe it is time to attach a purpose and a vision to my blog.  Maybe that is what it (I) needs. Instead of making it all about me, my family, yadda yadda yadda....I will make it about some vision and purpose.  You know, like others have on theirs...from sharing recipes, Bible studies, book reviews, movie reviews, I don't know...need time to think about this one.
Any ideas...?

I feel the same way some, no, most of the time! Oh well. I loved the comment you left on my blog post about people's attitudes toward the church. Cracked me up, and you are so right!

You know I am here but I felt the need to comment anyways! I hope you find your vision! You have a lot to offer! I think it takes awhile to find your nitch in the blog world!! Just start writing and you'll figure it out!

I love you!

I here. Always have been. My blog for me is a diary. I can look back and see where my head and heart was way back when.

If something were to happen to me, it would be there for my children. A reminder of my thoughts for them.

Still I also have a weightloss blog and I'm actually pondering another with purpose, so I really get what you are saying.

Don't overthink it. Just let it come as it may. amazing what it will become.

Amy - I think you've done well with your blog. I enjoy getting to read it, and because you are a quiet and private person, it does give me a way to get to know you more as an individual.

For me, with as much as I've been through with mine, I've struggled also. But my blog started as a place to record things for Coley - and then for Jalyn. It's come a long way, but that's what I'm back to now. If no one else ever reads it, one day they will.
