Going into NaBloPoMo this year I was quite apprehensive. I've been having a rough go with the old blog for a while. I took many a hiatus and just never felt like I found my way. I felt like my blog had no "purpose" and I just couldn't write anything of substance or quality. Also? I was having some deep blogger-envy. All of my favorite blogs that I have been reading for years began torturing me. They were so good! So many people kept coming back! Why can't I be like them?
Because I'm not them.
I don't have to fit into one box. If I write about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and mental illness one day, then post a cute picture of my girls the next, that's OK! That's me, that's my life, and the people that mean the most to me keep coming back to read and offer support. I don't need to look at stats or count comments. I need to be grateful for the people I have crossed paths with because of this blog and for the voice that BlogHer has given me. Thanks to those that convinced to participate in NaBloPoMo. I don't think I would have come to these realizations without it.
2 more days to go! Thank you all for hanging out at Athena Bee's with me for so long.
