I have not written anything for several days. It seems that as soon as I get an idea for a blog post, a child wakes up, another child needs help with homework, another child needs me to drive them to practice, or some household task needs immediate attention.
I am seeing a trend here.
For a while I have been feeling quite frustrated, even a bit resentful, about this situation. I see all these mommy bloggers and food bloggers who have amazingly cute blogs, and I have to confess to a bit of jealousy. I would love to have an attractive layout with fun cartoon-y images, beautiful photography, tabs, menus, etc.
I love visiting these types of blogs.
(Here are a few of my favorites http://www.browneyedbaker.com/, http://bakeat350.blogspot.com/, http://thefoodiearmywife.com/, http://pinkheelspinktruck.com/, http://www.thehappiesthome.com/, just to name a few.)
So, you can imagine how discouraged I feel when I can’t seem to find the time to learn all that I would like to know about designing my blog and making it look the way I want. When I do find time to sit down and work (usually at 5 or 6am on a Saturday morning…eek!) I struggle to decide whether I should be writing or tinkering with the layout.
Searching for tips and ideas, I often get stuck daydreaming in the land of Pinterest and wasting what precious little time I have.
I suppose that I should actually be writing. I could have the most perfect layout in the “blogosphere,” but without decent content, who the heck will want to stop by, right?
So, for now, I hope you will forgive me for my “not-so-cute” blog and you will still stop by to see what’s going on over here at “Happy Mom, Healthy Mom.”
With that said, if you are a current blogger I would welcome any tips, tricks, links, and/or other bits of advice you have to offer. Be sure to link to your own blog in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!
Now, it is 7am, and I have to quit blogging and run one of my kids to track practice!
