I know we are all about to be inundated with Thanksgiving related gratitude posts (I’m not complaining, I love gratitude stuff!), but lately I’ve been thinking a lot about this blogging shindig. Sometimes we CTWM’s bloggers talk to each other about how hard it is to blog. I think it’s a common perception that blogging is easy and comes completely naturally.
But honestly, sometimes blogging is tough. Not in the what should I write about way but in the holy crap I’m really putting myself out there way.
This is especially relevant on websites like CTWM’s where we try to write in a way that is truthful and open. We try to tackle topics that make those tender parts of ourselves ache and in doing so, we are exposed for the world-wide-web to see (and criticize). There have been so many times that I (and my fellow bloggers) have hesitated to click that Publish button. I think we all tend to go to a place of what if no one likes my piece or what if no one comments?
