It's just how it is.

Thirty things I’ve learned this month blogging.

1. I may talk a lot but most of what I say isn’t interesting or important enough to want to write it down.

2. My spelling is atrocious. If it wasn’t for spell check no one would understand a thing I say.

3. Writing something thinking someone might one day read it makes you think a lot harder about how and what you write.

4. The only time I can settle into blog is after the kids are in bed. The rest of the day I am to distracted by other things.

5. If it isn’t a conscious decision to blog you will forget and even still you might forget.

6. I am able to enjoy writing. In high school I never imagined that I could enjoy writing anything.

7. Blogging is hard when I don’t get out of the house. I need inspiration from the world.

8. Blogging brings out my in poet and now you know it. (Sorry I had to.)

9. It’s cheaper then therapy but can be just as relieving.

10. I am a night blogger. I just don’t have the focus during the day.

11. Although great to have blogging from a phone is not easy.

12. The more exhausted I am the less I make sense. Even to myself.

13. It’s hard to be creative for your own purpose but not as hard to come up with ideas for others.

14. When stuck for something to write ask others for ideas it’s easier for them (see #13).

15. Weekend days are hard to blog on. There is just no energy left at the end of the day.

16. I have no idea how to add video to my blog.

17. I need to learn more about WordPress and how to work it.

18. There is way to much spam.

19. Sometimes spam comments are really nice even if they aren’t real. (I can pretend for a little.)

20. I need to learn about spam blockers and install a better one then what I have. 30+ a day is to many.

21. I don’t write about my kids as much as I thought I would but it’s still a lot.

22. Blogging is easier to do when you have a blogging “buddy” to help remind you and help to keep you motivated.

23. It is hard to blog with a baby in your lap.

24 . It is nearly impossible to blog with a toddler in the room.

25. It is flustering to blog with a child that is learning to read in the room. “Mommy what’s that word?” Every time you type a word.

26. Blogging during insane times is a nice feeling of control of something no matter how small or inconsequential.

27. You never know who will read your blog and it can be a nice surprise to know someone is interested.

28. Blogging doesn’t have to take a lot of time.

29. Short blogs seem more likely to actually be read.

30. Compiling a list like this one is hard. I can’t remember what I’ve written so I might have repeated things. If I did….oh well, sorry. 🙂
