Mom blogs can suck it.

I remember a time when the words would just flow from my fingertips like an everlasting river. Now, they just trickle here and there like a dried up stream. I miss it. I miss it all. I need to remove this beaver dam of a writer’s block. I think the truth is I grew tired of always thinking about how I am sick. Honestly, I was just always too tired. My brain could barely scraped basic thoughts together. Beyond the basics conversation fillers, I was lost. Exhausted. Burnt out.

I grew tired of trying to be accepted. I was tired of being seen as not being quite good enough. The blogger world is rather cutthroat.I grew bored of commenting of other’s blogs that I had no real interest in with hopes that they would return the favor. It is a lot like high school. Unfortunately, I fall into the place of the girl who doesn’t quite fit in. Sure, I am a mom. Yet in the blogging world, that is not enough,  I just wanted the world to see that  I am a mom who isn’t perfect but not broken. Most of all, I was tired of pretending. Because if I am going to be honest, I don’t care about recipes of kids snacks or carefully curated visions of a falsely perfect life.

I believe in being me. As is. I know I may not have to most innovative writing but it is real and raw. I bleed myself on to my keyboard in hope of reaching someone like me. I letting the world’s standards roll of my shoulders as my wings spread. I am letting go of the numbers. How many followers? How many views? Are they reading this? Are they sharing this? I am over it. I am letting all of the anxiety that has held me back go.  Read my work or not. But at this point, mom blogs can suck it.

  1. I’m new to blogging but I kinda got tired of this in the real world. It seems like if you live in a small town like I do, you don’t fit into a clinic unless you’re in a workout group or a bunch group. And you don’t get invited to either group unless you’re already fit or rich. So I figured I would try blogging. Sorry you’re feeling down about it. I’m going to read some of your other stuff! And I’m totally with you, I don’t want to read about how to clean or feed my kids healthy snacks. I want to complain about them and have people agree. Lol!

  2. I am the same way, I blog as an outlet for myself. I don’t really care of anyone reads it. I use it as an open journal for the world to see. If someone reads it fine if not then I still got what wanted to say off my chest.
