A Cloud Over the Valley

I almost deleted my blog.

I think I could describe my mood as blog-pression. I haven't really wanted to share my thoughts because of several reasons. First, there is the time/energy problem. Being pregnant sucks my dry, and then taking care of my other responsibilities has been exhausting. Secondly, there is a weird self-centered thought of "No one cares what I think.". And then thirdly, there has been a futile thought of "What's the point anyways? It's not going to change anything."

Well, I think it's high time I pick myself up by my bootstraps and get back into it.

One of my main problems has been that I have a lot to say, but the words just don't come, so I don't say anything. A thoughtful, and I may add intelligent, friend suggested that I need to nurture the blog. I thought this was a very practical idea and one I intend to implement. Especially since a different friend, after a rather lengthy rant about John McCain, suggested that my blog would be the perfect outlet for such tirades. (I'm pretty sure I used some choice words in my rant, which maybe I'll have to tone down for the blog...)

So, I think what I'll focus on posting about are cooking, books and politics, since those are my most favorite things.

Wow, it sounds like you must have some very wise friends indeed. ;) You really should nurture this blog, because it is a good outlet for you. And also because I enjoy reading it. There are two excellent reasons right there.

You are right...it might not change things. But I still like reading your voice.

So glad our peer pressure worked!!!

I've missed hearing your "voice"--but I can totally understand the no energy/no time thing (well, not really, since I'm not pregnant and don't have kids, but you know what I mean!).

Hopefully as you "nurture" the blog, you'll feel nurtured yourself!

Yes Yes Yes!!!!!! I'm going to love more Jessica blogs. Today is a good day.

I've been there many a time... And while you need to do whatever it is you feel led to do, I am excited that it might include more of your thoughts on food, politics and books! Hurray! :)

Delete? You were going to DELETE?!?

I gasped out loud at the thought. Good thing I saw the Quinoa post right after it or I would have called and disrupted your pregnancy nap...

I always enjoy reading your blog (even though I'm a little slow to get to it) so I'm glad you've decided to continue. I find that it's a good outlet for me too. Even if no one reads my blog, it helps to get my thoughts out onto paper...er...rather...the computer screen.
