I have some friends who have been discussing the possible reasons why their blogging has slowed way down. So I have been thinking about that for myself. Some reasons:
1. I feel less comfortable sharing my thoughts publicly.
I am not sure why this is. I have several times thought about protected posts or something like that. I guess I don’t know who is reading and I feel more and more that as my circles expand I may say something that affects my relationships with people I come into contact with. It was far easier to blog in the day that my blog was read mostly by people I didn’t know face-to-face.
2. My stage of life is transitional right now.
I am figuring out what my “stay-at-home” mom career is going to morph into now that the kids are in school full-time. I feel kind of silly writing about my life on here – like people will judge – but I think it is my own insecurities. I really should write a post on this topic.
3. It is easier to throw one sentence onto Facebook than write a whole post
I am sure there are more, but that’s what I have right now. I would like to blog more, but need to figure out these issues.
