why bother?

This is the question bugging my brain at the moment, so you can tell my state of mind at the moment! I have been struggling with finding inspiration to post. Not that there hasn't been any craftiness happening, or that I haven't recieved any fantastic packages - because I have. But I've been feeling a bit out of it all, and when I am browsing all the blogs I subscribe to in blogline I start to feel, well simply, like I'm just not supplying quality to the blogging world. I have seen other's go through this dilemma, have read how they have got through this obstacle, and have seen how many individual reasons for blogging there are. So ultimately I guess I will keep posting, and hope that someone (other than mum and my sis!) are reading - although really, does it matter? In the meantime, I am going to focus my efforts on setting up my etsy shop - so much stock to finish! and putting my mind back in inspirational, upbeat mode I prefer it to be in.

I always think 'what am I crapping on about?' but really, at the end of the day who cares? blogging is a good way to get yourself to make stuff, to keep on at a project and keep you creating stuff. If I didnt start a blog I wouldnt be drawing like I do now. And I also think its part PR, comment and comment and lead people back to you. Its only new, and its meant to be fun....mmmm fun? whats that again....

I hear ya sister, I find myself questioning my motives all the time...like when I'm feeling left out of certain "elite" blog cliques or envious of people who get a gazillion comments, could I be any more childish? umm...my boyfriend could answer that question,
but anyway, I agree with Shannon, it's the closest thing to having a deadline ...which is the only way I'll ever finish a damn thing. So for that reason alone, it's as good as gold.

I say Keep on bloggn' Sam, and thanks for your sweet comment a few weeks ago :)

I know this is an old post and you must be over the hump by now but I just wanted you to know that I know exactly how you feel! Not long ago I wrote a somewhat similar post and I've been trying not to put any pressure on myself about the whole blogging because, Shannon is right, isn't this supposed to be fun?
