Day to day, this is a different answer, but one way that I woke up was last spring.
At the time, I was part of a blog consortium (for lack of better for word it) and was writing a post about what I believe.
Um…. hi reality. It had been awhile hadn’t it?
One of the things that I wrote was that I believe blogging should be fun and something that adds to my life rather than a chore or something that I have to do.
It’s not like I get paid for it. If I did, yeah, writing could be something I have to do. But I’m not, so it’s not.
I never published that post. Just writing that I think it should be fun was the wake up call I needed to step back from all the carnivals, prompts, and just be me. So, I am now awake, at least in that sense, and am not doing all the other junk. It’s kinda fun to a point, but it’s also a false sense of importance. I may have had some followers, but none of them said a word when I stopped blogging. The few who’ve refound me as of this posting are people that I actually know in reality and aren’t just virtual profiles out in space.
This is much better.
