I remember when blogging used to be fun.  
Lately it just hasn't been.  I'm in a handful of Facebook groups that are dedicated to blogging.  Well apparently I'm not active enough in the groups, or I don't post enough, or I don't fit the niches well enough, or maybe they just don't like me.  I know I'm not wearing pink and it's Wednesday but...why can't I sit with you? 

Why?  When did blogging become this club where you needed to be a VIP with a recommendation to get in? Why do I have to write about my boyfriend, my DIY, or the Army for people to read what I have to say or care to comment? 

I completely understand that some topics are more desirable to read about than others.  Personally, I am not much into the mommy-blog genre and I tend to prefer to read blogs where I can relate. However...I feel a sense of camaraderie in blogging.  I feel like we should all work harder to be more accepting of each other and less critical.  Making friends in real life is hard enough...Why does it have to be clique in the online world as well?!

I'm honestly not sure where this rant is coming from.  I suppose I just miss how fun it used to be to blog.  And now I always feel like I'm trying to impress people with my words.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is...I'm done.

I love blogging and I think I'll come back to it.  But today...I quit.  Blog ya later.

I think we all feel like that from time to time. I don't really DIY stuff, I don't do recipes, I don't really do parenting stuff, only what we do together. I guess I'm a mil spouse blogger, but technically I'm not even that anymore cause the hubs retired. I plan on rebranding, but it kinda worries me cause I don't know where I'll fit at all then.

Yup, this is usually when it's time to take a break. I've also noticed my blog participation level has dropped, but at the same time, it's the time of year when people are just busier with life. It happens.

Blogging can definitely be cliquey sometimes! I guess I'm becoming a mommy blogger, but hopefully that won't be all that I post! Haha. You should probably take a breather. It's good for all of us every now and then.
