Lovely distraction

Hello.
I'm a real newbie to writing blogs but have been reading them for over a year now. And I love them. I sit and log on to find out the next chapters in peoples lives. Be it a house move, a nosey in the cupboards or a sadness they share I read away and share joys and pain. I worry if they have not blogged for a few days and hope everything is ok.  I have learnt a lot about so much and now have a wide range of blogs to read. I have not joined all the ones I read yet as the list increases and my pile of library books is gathering dust.
Last night I sat to blog but got distracted by other blogs. I'm a sucker for the lists of blogs that people read and also the comments. Then I click on the people that comment if they have a blog. So it goes on till I have a whole line of tabs open. Like a million diaries to read and I seem to be trying to read through them all.
My own blog has no identity yet. A scrapbook rather than a defined theme. But maybe that is my life at the moment. I am without definition at the moment. I used to be a carer, I used to be a home schooler, I used to be a nurse. But what am I now?
This is not a sad post, I'm not sad. How could I be when I have so much. I have my health, love from my son, family and friends, a mad dog that adores me, a home and I have potential to do something now. It's the confusion of knowing where to go next. In the panic to earn and the chase of paid employment the potential can be left behind.
Confidence is the key. In myself and talents I may have. I doubt that this blog will entertain and yet I still keep going as hopefully it will bring clarity. Also though it's like being in a great big friendly gang. So thanks bloggers.

  2. I'm exactly the same reading blogs. I started mine because of getting the allotment I wanted to keep a record that I could look back on.

    I also put how we save money as I have friends who ask how we get this and that for next to nothing and I can show them instead of tell them.

    I blabber on about my personal stuff as well........too much sometimes but that's why I prefer blogging to facebook as people are real in blog world but full of making out they're so wonderful and perfect on the old FB.

    I could do with finding a good weightloss blog, not one full of advertising but a real person I can relate to and if I find one that will mean more hours on the keyboard ;)

  4. Thanks for the follow Hazzy, I will reciprocate. Blogging is addictive in a lovely way- you make friends, you feel part of a group of people who are decent and caring and become a little bit like extended family, who send you messages of support when you need it and who are excited and happy for and with you when great things happen. It sounds like you are on the verge of interesting changes...I will look forward to sharing them with you. ps- the name of your blog is one of the best I have yet come across :-) CT x

  5. Hello Hazzy thank you for joining me on my blog. Judging by what you have written, I believe you will get a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction from having your own blog.

    I started mine for a variety of reasons. One of them being that I can be a chatterbox at times and I have points of view on a variety of subjects.
    All the very best to you.

  6. I started my blog after spending a year reading and leaving the odd comment. Originally it was going to be about getting ready to retire and live on a more frugal budget. I have never been a spendthrift, it is not what I can afford but what I will afford. I have updated my sewing machines but kept the old ones, my Treadle is a thing of joy to me. I happily pounce on vintage sheets and men's shirts in Charity Shops and will hand over £15 for a metre of designer fabric that is so gorgeous it takes my breath away. I write about the ups and downs in my life, books, recipes, a lot about Ben, Francesca and James. I write as I speak, without planning or forethought so I repeat myself and miss things out as the words flow like lava downhill. I enjoy your writing, it is you. If I want to read a carefully crafted novel I go to the library, keep up the good work.

  8. Thanks for the follow and comments! I am so nosy I love to read about what others are up to! I sometimes wonder why anyone would want to read my boring non adventures, but. Guess there are like minded souls such as I out there! I wrote an extremely witty, well informed (!) comment on your homeschool post. Basically I agreed with everything you said!

  10. Hi Hazzy. Thank you for the follow. I think your blog is fine as it is and I agree with the sentiments above. It's your blog so you write about what you want to not all blogs have a theme. Mine doesn't, it's just some of the things that I and my family get up to that I want to share.
    I know just how you feel about the job situation because I just don't I know what I want to do or can do. Best wishes with yoour job hunting.
