Do you know what's weird?
When people in "real life" tell you they read your blog. In theory, I know this. My new blog posts are always shared on Facebook and Twitter. Therefore, it's not a secret I have a blog. People read it. My mom reads it sometimes. I have college friends who read it. Some of my close friends read it. Co-workers from my former church read it. But they don't always talk about my blog, so I kinda forget that people outside of the Internet world read this.
Then, you'll randomly have people at church say "I love your blog!" Or you'll go to your college and an old music professor says "Thanks for all of your posts. It's such a great way to keep in touch!"
Um... you're welcome?
Don't get me wrong. It's awesome that people I know read my blog and it's really fun and part of why I started this. It's a way to keep in touch with people and let them know my thoughts and what's going on in my life. I'm glad they read it! For some reason though it always throws me off. Then I get all paranoid of what people think of me and my ridiculousness...
See? Look at what a crazy person I am! Didn't see that in some of my classes at good ol' CUC did ya?
Or maybe you did and I'm just crazier than I thought.
Anyways, one of my blog friends, Jess, mentioned a Blog Everyday in July challenge on her blog. I think I'm going to try it. I've been in a blogging rut lately and originally I was thinking of cutting back to posting only once or twice a week. But, I originally started posting 5x a week because I did Blog Everyday in May, and then didn't stop. Maybe this is the kick in the butt I need to just keep writing. I won't do all of the prompts because of other ideas and posts I need to do. But sometimes it's nice to have someone give you a topic and you can be as creative as you want with it.
Anyone else want to join in? Check out the prompts here:
