One of my favorite bloggers recently posted about blogging insecurity, how she goes through it, sometimes to the point that bloging becomes more about stats and popularity, and becomes a chore.
I've never had an overly popular blog or made a whole lot of money with it; I never expected it to. But, I definitely get blogging anxiety too, and it can feel a litle like being back in high school:
"Do they like me?"
"Are they getting bored?"
"Is anybody paying attention?"
"Am I keeping them entertained?"
There are times I feel like a complete failure as a blogger, and times I want to quit. But I try to remember that I got into this to have fun, and damn it, that's what I'm doing, for me. I hope I have been entertaining most of the time and educational some of the time, and never completely inane. Thanks for hanging in there with me as I find my feet out here in SoCal, through all the stress and the journey; I promise better posts are coming soon!
Some projects lined up so far for 2011:
-an Edwardian/Ragtime ensemble for March
-a costume for SDCC (anybody have suggestions?)
-a ballgown bodice to go with the money dress skirt
-a steampunk ensemble
-a Regency day dress and pelisse
