It's another busy, stupid, frustrating work day, and I'm taking five minutes out for lunch before I dive back into a marketing piece that needs to be finished like, now. My stress and anxiety are super high...a symptom of a chaotic workplace. Y'all know this. It's partially the reason why I'm having trouble reading and blogging lately.
So I'm sitting here in my five minutes (maybe ten, now), and eating my grapes, and I'm going through a few random emails in my personal account and I see, "Sorry for Being a Crappy Blogger" in my BlogHer Daily email, and I take a minute or two to read it, and it sounds like things I've written and I want this person to know that they are not, in fact, crappy anything.
Let's face it, we all feel like crappy bloggers sometimes. Maybe we're not consistent or maybe we feel like our creativity is flat, or maybe you're like me and you just need to eat grapes and get back to work. Maybe you're having an especially great summer full of fun trips and kid stuff and family awesomeness and you just don't want to compute. Whether it's good or bad, if it's keeping you from blogging, that doesn't make you a crappy blogger. Crappy blogging is a myth. Life happens.
Most often what I really mean when I say I am a crappy blogger is that I feel like crap because I want to blog (or read) and I don't have time or maybe I just don't have the capacity to hold my head up at night for that extra hour of reading or writing.
This post serves no purpose except to remind myself, and you, that we are vibrant, busy, occupied people. Shit happens. Blog when you can.
