Blogging My Guilt
Blogging is a really fun outlet for me. Leave it to the world to take something that is supposed to be fun and turn it in to a big old guilt trip. I don't know if you have noticed but blogging has become the new outlet for women. Okay I stand corrected, I just read a list of the top 50 bloggers in the world and they are mostly men. It has become a profession for many and you can find people to design your blog, get great gift ideas and even get your house organized....all over the internet. What I mean about the guilt trip is that I only blog for fun and to create a history, with pictures and video for my family, but I now receive emails from bloggers who blog every single stinking day. So everyday I am reminded that I haven't blogged that day, week or month. SIGH! I'm also consumed with their cute little blogs that have probably cost big bucks to design. I covet their cute little buttons and smartly organized content. It is just a daily reminder of how far behind I am on the "techni-train", with no hope of catching up in this life time.
Oh well, I think I will just kick back with my cup of peppermint tea, cosy up to my fireplace and take another look at etsy, my new favorite shopping spot with no lines.
In the mean time you can enjoy a peek at my top five favorite blogging sites:
1. Oh Amanda
2. Giving Up on Perfect
3. The Unconventional Kitchen
4. The Green Smoothie Girl
5. I am an age old tree
