Without Apologies

Just HAD to reblog Lemon Shark’s wonderful post this morning. How many of us know exactly what she’s talking about, yet we heap guilt upon our own heads when we think we’re falling short? *raising hand, here* Next time it starts to pile up, think about this, and know that in all honesty MOST of the people you follow would tell you the same thing. Thanks, Lemon Shark, for expressing it so eloquently. πŸ™‚

If you miss one or two of my blog posts, I will not accept your apology.

People comment, email, and DM to apologize for not visiting my blog or doing so a week or more after I’ve posted.

For the love of all that is covered in chocolate, please stop.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s very sweet (the chocolate and your apology). And I’ll admit I’ve done this myself to fellow bloggers.

Of course I like seeing you here but, if you can’t make it, it’s all good.

If I don’t see you for a long while, I might inquire. But, if I do, it’s out of curiosity or concern not anger or upset.

Every once in a while (or more often), we get overwhelmed in the blogging world. We can’t keep up. Either with writing our own posts, reading others’ posts, commenting, or replying to comments.

It’s. All. Good.

    • I know what you mean. I hope everyone reads the full post. It’s very affirming, and it’s something we should all try to take to heart. Blogging, in all its many aspects, should be a positive experience, enriching our lives, and letting us find ways to enrich others. Once guilt and stress move into the equation, everything starts to break down. I love how Sarah expressed this! πŸ™‚ And, I swear, I’m going to remember it!

        • Thanks. I’m so glad to have read your post today, as I’ve been falling farther and farther behind, and was starting to feel pretty bad. But I’m going to tell myself that as long as I do the best I can, that’s all anyone can ask, and I’m letting go of the guilt, henceforth! πŸ˜€ Have a great day, Sarah! πŸ˜€ ❀
