The Title is the Hardest Part

My mom told me that I have been blogging more than usual lately. Her statement was merely that, not implying that my serial blogging was anything to be ashamed of. Nonetheless, I felt sheepish.

Am I flattering myself by posting my thoughts on the internet—like somehow my life is interesting enough for others to enjoy?

No, I daresay that my life is fairly lackluster. Actually, one of the most exciting thing that happens to me each day is when I log onto my blogsite and someone has actually posted a comment.

Someone has read my thoughts. What I have written struck a cord. Wa-hoo!

But I shouldn’t admit that. I should act too cool to care… like I was just posting for the sake of posting. Like it wouldn’t matter if anyone read it.

What I am trying to say is that, while I do use blogging as a journal, I really appreciate those that read my blog—even if you do it because we are related and you feel obligated. Still, it makes me feel good about myself. It makes me feel out of the ordinary. So thanks!

Hi Bethany. I'm de-lurking. I can't remember how I found your blog, but I was in your ward at Liberty Square, so I've been interested in reading your blog. Congratulations on finding what sounds like an awesome husband and your (soon to be) two kids.

I too love comments, but even if no one reads my posts, at least I'm keeping a personal history, right?

I love your blog and I love you, sweet sister. I wish I could get my students to write with the flair and voice that you employ in every entry. I am always happy when you have a new entry.

I read every day and love every one. I would comment every day except I'm usually at work when I read them and my work computer is very picky about what comments it chooses to leave.
