I have gone a-wall.
I went into hiding. I couldn't take the pressure, the rat race of trying to keep up with all the other bloggers out there who are better, prettier and have way better content.
I caved and gave up.
I wrote the occasional book review to keep the book companies happy and my account current. I wrote nothing else. Nothing from my heart, my soul or my life. I am lame.
But...who cares. I don't.
I want to write for you, but I can't. "You" probably don't even read my blog...no, not really. I bet there are no comments on this post. My view count is down to almost nothing, and guess what, I don't even care anymore.
The rat race tells me that my blog sucks. The big timers tell me my content is borrowed and used up. I can never compete, and boy did I try.
I typed out post after post, shared with party after party, joined every single Facebook group I could find to help build a following, a presence on the blog-o-sphere even if it were very insignificant.
I see bloggers all the time, new and old, running this same rat race. It saddens me.
Why do we run this race to exhaustion? I have seen so many ask the question, "Why do I keep blogging?" or "I am in a slump, should I keep going?"
I asked myself the same question. And I answered it with taking a LONG break. I still have no clue why I choose to blog. Maybe because I kinda like it. But I do know one thing- I refuse to get back into the rat race. "You" will either read this, or you won't. Period. Z. The end.
If you like me, you like me. If you don't, you don't. I am not going to go out and try to convince you to read my blog. No more running on the hamster wheel for me.
I will be writing when I want to, about what I want to.
I am starting a new chapter in my life. I will be eating cleaner and living with less. I want to incorporate a minimalist lifestyle into my home and life. I will try to keep you in the loop and share what that is like for me.
There is just too much stress, too much stuff. Life is too short to run a race that doesn't even matter. The only race I want to run and win....is the one for Jesus Christ. And with blogging in the past, I completely took Him out of that picture....He will be inserted back in....
That is all for now....
