The Blogging Bug

It has been a LONG time since I've spent over an hour working on this blog and fix some bugs I have been having.  It brought me back to the first days of blogging when I would spend hours trying to figure out HTML coding and wondering how I managed to create a new background, but lose buttons and sidebars all at the same time.  Blogging sure has come a long way for me.

It's 11:13pm right now and here I am for the second time today writing on this blog.  Clearly whatever was holding me back from this space of mine has been lifted.  Not sure what it was.  It could be that today was tough for me.  Maybe that's what I finally needed to get my mojo back.  I felt myself today crawling into a hole I was digging.... because it's easy to do that.  It's easy to slip into the background.  Today I was just having a moment.  That's when I realized that I haven't done what I love to do... write in this space of mine.  The writing helps.  It makes me feel whole.  It makes me vent and also share good news.  It makes me who I am.  Blogging is a big part of my life.  For the last several years I have documented my life with you all.  The other day I went back and just started clicking on random posts to read.  I laughed, I cried.  My memories were always in my head, but having them written down helped me appreciate those memories. It reminded me of why I started this blog in the first place.

I don't blog for you, I blog for me.

And that is all I need.
