This is my post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group. It's a group thought up by the ninja himself, Alex J. Cavanaugh. The group posts the first Wednesday of every month and is a wonderful way to support and get encouragement from and for your fellow writers. If you would like to join the group or see the other blogs that participate in it go HERE.
I feel bad. I have been a horrible blogger. I've barely posted and I haven't visited any blogs in awhile now. Why? Because I'm writing.
And I suppose that's a good thing...If it wasn't for my damn guilty conscience. I like to blog. I like to visit other peoples blogs. This writing community has taught me valuable things and given me priceless support. I've met my AMAZING critique group through it. The things I've received from blogging, couldn't be more meaningful to me.
But it's a MAJOR time suck. And I think everyone knows sometimes somethings got to give and unfortunately for me that something was my poor, sad, neglected blog.
And after all it's given me and all it's done for me, I feel bad neglecting it this way. But, what else can I do? I can't magically make more time in the day or less things for me to do.
So, yes, I'm a bad blogger.
I keep telling myself I'll post a blog today or visit some blogs tomorrow, but when I comes down to it...I'd rather write. So, thus my conundrum. I feel like a bad blogger, taking all the wonderful things blogging has given me and not returning anything.
So, here I go again. I'm going to try really hard to be around a little more. Blog at least once a week and visit other ones. But if I'm not around... you know where I am, writing cave. :)
Are you a bad blogger? Do you have a secret to balance?
