Focus

When I started this blog, it was with the thought that I had no idea what I was doing and I was not sure I would be able to pull it off.  My goal for starting my blog was to inspire others with the lessons I have and am learning in my own life.  To reach out, share my story, and for others to know that they are not alone.  With this in mind, I share about my everyday life, faith, marriage, parenting, things I love, things I'm passionate about, and basically wherever my heart thoughts lead me.  I am honest, raw, real, emotional, passionate and will share deep things because I believe it will help others.  When those around me are real about their life and transparent with me, it helps me relate to them better.  It also reassures me that I'm not alone.

I started this blog mid August 2011.  In the last 10 months I have had to remind myself time and time again why I'm doing this.  It is so easy to get caught up with what so and so is doing and making sure you're at all the parties (blog hops / link ups) and guest posting, guest swapping, giveaways, and more giveaways.  There have been several bloggers talking about how there has been more guest posting and giveaways in blog land lately rather than sharing from the heart and about what we are learning in life.  This is true, at least for me.

First paragraph = reason I'm doing this, my goal with my blog.

Second paragraph = what I've been focusing on and stressing about.

Time to get my focus back and do what I came here to do.

What is your goal for what you do?  Have you been focused or have you been sidetracked?  How are you going to get back to your goal?

I know what you mean and it bugs me bad. Blogging for me is like a public account or journal. I have many of the same reasons for writing my blog too...hey great minds think alike! I wrote about it today...sort of. Happy Monday to you!

I have been thinking the same thing the past few weeks...I too have noticed more guest posting/giveaways/product reviews than actual writing. Here's to focus for the both of us :)

True - it's fun to do hops and giveaways every now and then but it does seem like there have been way too many of them recently. It's nice to have a little "real" blogging in there too!! (what a concept!)
