Posting Blahs

Well friends, I haven't been blogging as much lately. There are several reasons why, I think.

First, I'm climbing toward my 100th post. This might be screwing with my head a little. I want my 100th post to be something good, but we all know that I write about nothing. My 100th post will be about nothing unless something extraordinary happens in my life...like TLC deciding that I'm their next client on What Not To Wear and they whisk me away for a week of shopping in New York. Or I win the lottery, which I don't even play, and suddenly have $100,000 with which to remodel my basement and give to the needy.

Second, using an RSS feed to import my blog posts to Facebook changes the nature of my blogging. I was slightly more anonymous when I only wrote for Blogger.com. Yes, my picture was up there, but I wasn't specifically inviting all my family and friends (& my husband's family and friends) to read what I wrote. The ones that wanted to read my inanities had to go look up my posts. On Facebook, my thoughts push across cyberspace and land on people's front door...complete with a creepy picture of my face next to them. The posts that I would once write about personal issues (my underwear, sex, etc.) just seem WRONG on Facebook. Also before Facebook, I could write about people I knew. Even if I changed the names, too many people could guess who I'm talking about on Facebook and so I find myself refusing to post stories I've written because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. The flip side of the coin, of course, is that I've got dozens more readers on Facebook...so if I go back to only writing for Blogger.com, I'll have to accept that.

Third, my camera is STILL at my grandma's house. There are so many times that I'll blog about whatever pictures I've recently taken, and without my camera that just doesn't happen. I've got to find time to go get that back and visit my dear Grandma.

Who knows, mabye my post about not blogging will inspire me to blog more. This is post #95. Let's see how long it takes me to get to 100.
