If I was perfectly honest, I wouldn't say I was a 'blogger'. I enjoy blogging as a hobby, and I like to do it when I have the time, but it is not highest on my list of priorities. Some days I do wish I was a someone who frequently spent all their free-time writing, editing, taking photos, scheduling etc but I just don't have that time everyday. I have been trying to organise myself so I get quite a lot done in the evenings now though, as long as I've done all the chores before. I do wish I was a blogger. I don't feel like I take it as seriously as I maybe should, if I want this to actually go somewhere, but when others things happen in life, like I said, they come first.
I don't wish to be a full time blogger though, I have others ideas of how I'd like my life to pan out, and if blogging becomes a part time income, or remains just a hobby, I don't think I'll mind, but for now I'd like to continue the way I am :) I feel that some people are just lucky and get the world handed to them, but I also think that some of the 'full-time bloggers' really do spend their whole lives thinking about blogging. Taking notes, capturing images throughout everyday, even creating moments just to blog about them. Spending every waking minute doing something, however small for their blog, and personally I don't think that's right. It might be just be? What do you you think?
Saying all of that though, recently I have been getting a bit jealous of other bloggers, some of whom started very recently and their blogs have just sky rocketed! I know its bad to be jealous of others bloggers right, but I know everyone is at some point, don't deny it. But being jealous gets you nowhere. These bloggers who are suddenly super duper amazing have actually worked their asses off to get where they are, and that's what my problem is, I don't always put in as much attention as I probably could. So that's nobodies fault but my own. Are you willing to admit you get blogger envy?
I just wanted to add that, even though sometimes I get struck down by blogger envy, I feel so priveledged to be part of such an amazing community. Whether or not I call myself a blogger doesn't change the fact that I don write a blog, and have made some amazing bloggers along the way. I feel that bloggers are some of the friendliest, chattiest & most welcoming people you will ever interact with. We are all their to support each others passions and creativity. It is not a competition after all.
