Is it just me?

Things other bloggers "get" that I....don't:

The list goes on. Bloggers worry about their "brand". They fret about their "voice". They're troubled when other bloggers say mean things about them or something they wrote. They AGONIZE.

You know what I worry about? Almost everything. I am after all, a glass half empty type of gal. You know what I don't worry about? THIS BLOG. Tell me, what am I missing?

I'm with you on most of the list. I cannot fathom that people have time in their lives for Twitter. It sounds totally crazy to me.

I don't know, but can I have some?

;)

I worry about everything in real life. Worrying about my blog is a very natural extension. I'm just an all-around freak.

Hey, jenn, most people cannot fathom that we have time in our lives for blogging. But I'm with both of you on the Twitter thing.

I shouldn't even be saying anything right now. I really try to keep the worry in check, but realize there will always be someone with better traffic. Figure out *why* you want to blog, then chase that tail.

I don't get why I spend so much time doing this....

Nor do I get how to cross out words on here....

Daisy said...

I'm with you heart and soul, my friend.

You're missing Plurk.com That's where the action is, and we miss you there. That other stuff? Not so much.

I'm completely with you. I don't understand why some blogs are wildly popular. They're good but I know better blogs that get but a handful of readers.

And the so-called traffic enhancing sites never did anything for my blog.

Eh, whatever!

I get Pioneer Woman. I really don't get the rest either though. I'm trying Twitter but I'm failing and I had to get out of Facebook as it's just creepy!

You? Are not missing anything. I don't get any of the rest of that either and I think that's a sign of health and sanity. So here's to us--BwL (that's Bloggers with Lives).

Ok, I thought it was just me that really didn't get Twitter. I feel better now. My Space and Facebook? I think you have to be teens/twentyish, because yeah, don't get those either. I've read Dooce a few times, just to see what the fuss was about. I don't understand what the deal is with her either. I don't find her funny. Will I be "blacklisted" now because I said that? Oh well, BlogHer is....yeah, I won't be going there either.

The only thing on your list I enjoy is Pioneer Woman. I just like her style and reading about her life on the multi-million dollar ranch. I wish that was me, with lots of money and a hot cowboy husband. But hey...c'est la vie.

I, like you, worry about nearly everything. But my blog really isn't one of them. If people want to read it, cool. If they don't, whatever.

I was into Twitter for a while. Then it kind of lost its luster.
I worry about my blog in stages -- some days I care, some days I don't. I guess that's the story of my life -- wishy washy! HA!

I think we need to take a page from your book.
