That's what blogging kind of is about right?
Here we are sharing our lives and posting image after image of ourselves or things we love. Sure we do it for ourselves and to immortalize those memories and moments in time but we also do it a little bit for each other too. For a comment here and there congratulating, commiserating, or flattering us.
I'll be the first to admit that it strokes my ego when I get a new follower or a positive comment and in the same hand crushes me a little bit when someone unfollows or says something nasty. It's the circle of blogging life. Do I wish that I was 'blog famous' and had thousands of readers fawning over me....yeah sometimes. But then I reevaluate and remember that some of those bloggers sacrifice alot, including personal time and space to share with their readers. I guess that's where the line draws in putting yourself out there. There will always be a give and take in blogging and it's your choice how much your willing to give to reap the rewards you want.
I think I've finally come to a comfortable place with my blogging and the voice I want to put out there. I'm not the most eloquent writer nor the best photographer but I try to share my life in the way I see and hear it. I curse and take too many pictures of my dog and nature and I'm okay with that. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but what would be the use in me changing? I wouldn't be the real me and in reality if you don't like those sorts of things than we probably wouldn't be great friends on or offline anyway.
Yeah...this post kind of went off on tangent, so I'm going to try to veer it back to the task at hand...
