Hello, my name is MomvsChaos, and I’m a blog stalker. Whew. Glad we got that out of the way! The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?
I follow several blogs on the Pulse App on my iPhone, and come across many, many more on my various Google searches each day. But I have never commented on a blog. I’m not really sure why, because if I follow a blogger on Facebook, I may comment there. Just never on a blog.
The irony here is crazy, because the I started this blog for only two reasons: to have something that was for me in a life filled with small children, and (more importantly) as a way to communicate with like-minded women.
Most (if not all) of the blogs I have discovered are blogs of women who are a lot like me. So what gives?
I guess I’m lazy. But also insanely jealous. That’s right. J.e.a.l.o.u.s. I struggle with wanting my blog to be cleverly written with lovely pictures like this friend, or be full of deep insights and minimalist love like this one, or full of really useful information, like this one. Of course, in my right mind, I remember that I’m trying to avoid chaos, and if I had the time (or camera) to take lovely pictures or do some fancy HTML work, I would totally do it. Someday, I probably will find the time (or make the time), but if it was really important to me (like going to the gym), I would do it. I guess the bigger point is, I want other people to think I can do it all as a Mom and have witty, insightful, well-researched blog with fancy pictures.
Truth is, I’m doing what I have time for. I’m doing what makes me fulfilled without adding chaos. I do resolve, however, to start commenting on blogs I visit- even if it’s just a quick note. Maybe you’ll do the same?
