I Don't Care If You Read My Blog


Sounds a little harsh doesn't it...
But I'm sorry I'm not sorry.

Think about why you blog for a second.
Do you blog to make money? Do you blog for sponsorship's? Do you blog for fun? Do you blog to share ideas? Do you blog to keep up with your life memories? For some of those reasons, you may care about who reads your blog and how many shares it gets on Pinterest and how many comments you receive. And that's FINE!

But I don't blog for any other reason than for my memories. And that's FINE too.
I blog because I want to look back one day on all my posts, and be able to reminisce on my life with my family and my friends. In other words, I don't blog for YOU. I blog for ME.
It's pretty obvious with the majority of my posts.
Sometimes I'll share ideas or sometimes I'll share tips from my past experiences. But the majority of my posts are (as of recent especially) bumpdates or what's been going on in my life. For some that may be boring, but I really don't care. My weekly bumpdates, my long baby posts, my living room, my iPhone pictures, are all posted on here for me. 

So if you've lost interest (which you probably wouldn't be reading this anyway), that's more than fine. If bumpdates aren't your thing, that's cool. But I won't be upset or disgruntled because of less followers and less comments due to baby related posts. It's what's important to me right now, and that's all that matters.

I know it's a bit of a rant. But every blogger is entitled to let it out every now and then, right? For those who have stuck around and share sweet comments weekly, thank you! Even though I am blogging just for me, I do love the friends and community that show me support without even really knowing me. I think y'all are awesome. :)

Aaaaaaand.... end rant.

  6. This is a great post that I think many bloggers need to be reminded of! I'm bummed I didn't start blogging during our engagement/wedding because now I don't have all those memories written down. Anyways, love your posts!

  7. I really hope someone didn't leave you some "hater mail" and this is where this is coming from! I love your bumpdates! I so WISH that I had the mental capacity to blog right now because I would love to have a "journal" of our engagement, but I'm one fry short of a happy meal each day haha! Keep on writing!

  8. I feel the EXACT same way, and I even had this same mini-rant in one of my bumpdate posts. Some of my posts are like journal entries or letters, especially to my baby, and others are just recaps. Long story short, they're pretty much all over the place, but I want to blog to document this super exciting time in my life- and so that my husband can remember things because he has a terrible memory =) Haha anyway, I'm a reader that will be sticking around. I missed your blog when you took that little break!
