I don't want to be that person...

My blog needs a makeover. I've changed a fair bit since I started it, I think. Anyway - no time for that now. I've just been sitting idle while my daughter sleeps and she'll be up soon, so I'd better hammer out this post. I haven't written in such a long time. Whenever I get the urge to, I feel that I shouldn't, because it will always be read by someone who doesn't agree or who may actively disagree. This shouldn't matter so much, but I hate the inflammatory side of my personality. So. Today's post is going to be a little bit inflammatory, but I'll try and keep it mature and well-worded. I read a lot of blogs. Mostly about cooking and lifestyle. The blogs I follow are written so well and they make me wish that I could write like that, although I'm not sure I'd want that sort of following. I do like the 'diary' aspect of it. My issue with a couple of blogs is how sunshiney each post is. Even the posts that aren't supposed to be so positive end up being super saccharine.It drives me nuts. I want to leave a comment afterwards that says: "It's okay to have a bad day!", but then, I don't want to be that person. I hate it when people talk about the birth of their child as a harrowing or difficult experience and then discuss the day-to-day parenting of said child as glorious and magical..... Really?! You haven't had a bad day since the kid was born? Come on. Well, my child has just woken, so I must continue my glitter-filled Thursday. It is actually a pretty good day.


  1. I completely agree. I created my blog over a year ago and started actually blogging about three months ago. Its a little overwhelming thinking what you write someone else is going to read. I started off my blog very general. I wrote without depth if that makes sense. I'm starting to blog how I speak. and I think as long as I stay true to my voice and self, my blogs will be real and not a perception of what I want people to see. and yes i can most def. say i have had bad days with my kid. shes my blessing but no child is perfect and no child has good days everyday. I think not only in parenting just general I have had off days... doesn't everyone? hope you have a good day..I enjoy following your blog!

    1. Thanks for the comment! Good to know I'm not alone!
