What Part Does Blogging Play in Your Life?
I’ve been feeling really disconnected from the blogging world lately. I’ve had a ton going on in my life lately-we renovated our house, I’ve been packing, cleaning, prepping our house to put it on the market, I just hit the 6 month in my pregnancy, we have a huge deadline at work coming up so we have been working weekends and taking care of my 2 year old. So I’ve had very little time to devote to blogging, reading blogs or spending time on Twitter.
I didn’t realize until now how important the blogging community was in my life. I miss the conversations I had with people on Twitter and feel so out of things and no clue what’s going on. I just started going through my Google Reader for the first time in probably over a month and realizing all the great books and topics I’ve been missing out on. And to top it off other than a few book reviews I haven’t really had time to devote to the memes I love, the author spotlights I wanted to do and a few other posts.
As I am slowly jumping back into things it’s great and I really feel like it helps me decompress after a long day. I’m hoping to really get back in touch with the friends I’ve made in this community and catch up with what is going on out there. Just in time to start drooling in envy because everyone I know is going to BEA in May! For those that didn’t know I had to cancel my plans to go since I can’t fly at that point in my pregnancy. Hope to be there in spirit with everyone and will be sitting here green with envy not so much over the book swag but the social aspects.
All of this brings me to my question. Am I the only one who feels a little lost being disconnected from the blogging world? Am I just obsessive or something? And be honest how much of your life is really devoted to the blogging world? Between writing posts, reading blogs, tweeting, etc it really did used to take up most of my evenings. Do you ever feel like you spend too much time on blogging activities? How do you balance it in your life?
