Get Married or Break Up

I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years. And in those two years, I think blogging has mushroomed. Or tidal-waved. Or something. I’ve seen blogs that I consider “famous” to celebrate their one or two year anniversary! I’ve seen  look-how-cute-my-kids-are blogs turn into influential mommy blogs. And even my little old blog has gone from a I’m-not-sure-if-I-want-to-tell-anyone-about-this to a full-fledged extension of myself.

But I feel like I’m sitting on the fence about blogging. Some days I just don’t blog. Some days I blog about NOTHING. (ok, most days…) And other days I’m a walking commercial for some of my PR friends. I like the ebb and flow, but the ebb and flow doesn’t exactly make for a growing blog.

I guess I feel like I need to get married or break up.

Never fear, I’m not going to dismantle my blog. Good grief, I’d die. I just mean I need to decide if I’m going to take the “next step” in my bloggy career (spend a little money, network more, etc. etc.). Or if I’m going to let my blog just be my blog.

I’m just not sure which action to take.  To help me decide, I registered for a bloggy conference. That’s right. I’m going to Blissdom 09. It will be like a the Trekkie conventions only with more laptops and not so many pointed ears.

This post is not in any way to fish for i-love-you-just-the-way-you-are comments. I absolutely love my blog and I just want to see if I want to do more! be more! And hopefully I’ll figure it out while I’m at Blissdom.

Of course, I may have also registered so I could meet some of my bloggy friends. I mean, who else can you talk to while tweeting three other people at once and no one would get offended?

Think you’re up for a trip to Nashvegas and a bloggy conference? It’s only 100 bucks until the end of the year! I’d love to meet you!


  1. Whew! I was worried that you were going to say you were leaving. I can’t take that kind of pressure right now, lol.

    I hope you have fun! Would love to go… but no money & no one to watch the kids, so I’m stuck. Enjoy for the both of us!

  2. Hmmmm…how fun! I might consider going!

  3. I’m going! Would love to say hello and shake your hand in real life.

  4. Good for you, girl! You know I just broke up with my blog – but we’re just calling it a “break” – not a “break up”.

    I can’t wait to hear what you learn at BlissDom…

  5. How fun!

  6. OK, I was going to email you today and ask if you were coming. That is my deciding factor–I will definitely be there!! Unfortunately I won’t get to stay at the hotel since I live in Nashvegas and with daycare we are going to be seriously poor. BUT I am so excited to meet you and so many others!

    I know what you mean about the in-between bloggyness. Some days I think I want to make a business of it and some days I think it’s just for my friends. 🙂


  7. I’ll be there, too! Yay!

  8. I so wish I could go to Blissdom! But attending a conference with a nursing toddler is much more difficult than with a nursing infant. I don’t regret our decision to do extended breastfeeding, not for one minute. But it does put a damper on how far Mama can travel.

  9. I thought I commented on this yesterday… I’m pretty sure I got distracted mid-type.

    Anyhoo, I vote for taking it to the next level… as long as you remember us common-folk bloggers. 🙂

  10. I’m excited for what I’ll learn at BlissDom…but I gotta admit the deciding factor was getting to hang out with people like you who I might not otherwise get to hang out with!

  11. Wow, great collection of tips 🙂 will try and check them all. Thanks
