Failing

So, while I can figure out how to spend hours on Facebook, I can't seem to blog properly.  I was recently given the link to a friend's blog and I found myself reading her entries for like 2 hours.  Her life seemed so interesting.  The thing is that she is not writing profound things (not always anyway, there are some entries there that are very profound, to me anyway).  She just takes the time to write the simple things in life.

I want to make another go at this blogging life.  I want to try to do something.  Maybe I need to tell myself that I can't go on facebook until I write something -- anything on my blog...  I am not a writer, not a good one anyway but I don't think blogs have to be perfectly written.

So, I am going to give it a go again.  Keep encouraging me...  It is probably healthier for me to spend time writing on a blog than spending hours "liking" items on facebook.  After all, I can't say some things on facebook for fear that I will be un-friended by those I try to reach.  I told God when I went on facebook that I would try to be salt and light.  I started out good... lately I find myself not posting things that some would deem controversial because then I can never gain trust of those I want to be salt and light to... it is a complicated world in facebook.  You can hide behind the screen and express things all you want or you can hide behind the screen and say nothing.  I am not sure that either one of those is the best way to be.

But, in my own personal blog I can be who I am (even though my name is changed due to my husband reading too many things in the news... :) ).  So, I am going to give it a go again.  I am sure that it will be a slow go but it would be worth it in the end if I find a better outlet for my thoughts...

  1. I feel like I'm listening to myself in this blog! We often think alike. So last night, sick with the flu, I read through YOUR blog for hours-- thanks for a lovely time! I was too weak to comment on every beautiful moment, as I was on my tablet and hardly had the energy to touch the screen... This post-- my favorite moment is when you consider the options we have, as far as social media goes: "You can hide behind the screen and express things all you want or you can hide behind the screen and say nothing. I am not sure that either one of those is the best way to be." It is a balancing act, to be sure. My thought for you--and I feel it's from the Lord-- is to get back on that horse, woman! Say whatever is on your heart (after prayerful consideration, of course). :) Don't ever let the nay-sayers make you silent. Oh, and I expect you'll return this favor when I have Kelly-haters beating down my in-box over a controversial post in the future!

  2. I'm still humbled you read for so long :). I'm glad you have begun a new time of writing! You will be glad to have a journal of your crazy life, if nothing else. Your kids might even appreciate reading back over mamas thoughts, mine do :). Welcome 'back'!
