Daily Life: WordPress Pen Pals

21 Mar

I have met some amazing people through wordpress and I know I have said it before but to me it feels like I’ve known these people for so long. I am subscribed to these blogs, comment occasionaly, and love to hear the good and bad of life. Most of these people that I follow I feel like I am similar to in certain ways and when I read it, it’s almost like an email conversation just catching me up on life or something fun they heard.

I am sad to say one of my first favorite blogs I ever subscribed to when I started wordpress is saying goodbye. Obviously she has a million good reasons why, and although she loves writing, she just doesn’t have the time. I went through the same thing. I started a blog when E was born and gave up weeks later feeling like I didn’t have anything fun to say, no energy, and should have been spending my time doing something else.

This round I feel completely different. I have no guilty feeling that I should be doing something else (99.9%) of the time. I love showing and telling people what I am doing. I love hearing what people have to say about it, and I have plenty of time to spare in order to keep up with it.

So I guess what I am trying to say is the timing has to be right, but if it wasn’t for this blogger, I might have given up a lot earlier. She made me feel like blogging about being a mom wasn’t boring, that we had plenty of fun and funny things to say! She made me feel like my writing was entertaining by leaving me comments and boosting my self-esteem. It’s like saying goodbye to a friend not knowing whether or not your going to see them again. It’s a sad goodbye but I hope she has the time of her life with whatever else she is doing πŸ˜€

Love Always,

J

    Always hard to say goodbye no matter what the connection. I enjoy your blog and ask you to pay it forward to her and say thank you for inspiring and motivating “J” to blog because you blog is now inspiring others. : )

      Yes πŸ˜€ She knows! I think I have commented on almost every blog post she has ever written and I gave her a lenghty one when she posted she was done blogging. You are very right though, I never really take into consideration that I might be someone elses inspiration I just always seem to take to note the ones you inspire me. I hope I can inspire others as much as she has done for me!!

    Hello it’s Ashley from the blog wake up and feel the happiness.
    I’m on my phone and I’m to lazy to figure out how to sign in.
    Thank you so much for writing this. I do enjoy reading your blogs I get them sent to my email on my phone and I read then every day. I never comment cause I’m not signed in. But you write great blogs and I wish I could blog right now time is just slipping away so fast plus nothing great to write about anymore. We will keep in touch email me anytime!

    it’s always nice to inspire and at the same time be inspired by others whom we can sometimes relate to, and whatever the relation was, saying goodbye is always a sad thing to do..

    nice to bump in here! πŸ™‚
