I can't decide ...

I can't decide what kind of mood I'm in today. Do I want to just go with a Wordless Wednesday kind of post? Obviously, I've started writing, so I'm not that wordless right now, right?

Or do I want to go with a
Pour Your Heart Out kind of post? I mean, I have so much going on in my head and my heart, wouldn't it be nice to let some of it out and feel a bit of a release, or something?

But if I choose to Pour MY Heart Out, what would I want to write about today?


Blogging is an interesting thing. There really isn't any pressure. Any pressures one does feel when blogging are entirely self-inflicted. Self-imposed. Whatever you want to call them. It's on you. You = the writer. Ya get me?


I had the incredible opportunity last week to meet with a group of women bloggers from my area. I'm truly excited about the connections I've only just begun to make with these ladies. Ladies is such an odd word, isn't it? I almost feel like I've been reprimanded when someone refers to me and a group of women I am with as "Ladies!" 




Shell is one of the amazing women I've connected with even further this month of September as we've been working together on Friends You Love, and that's a whole nother story when it comes to women bloggers who have turned into friends. But I don't want this post to take up the entire page of my blog, so I'll save that for another September day.

And if you choose to go wordless, or word-filled, as I have, you can also find yourself many a WW linky across the bloggy-world.



I'm sure you'll find a place that's right for you. I know I have!

What fun that you got to go out with them! I'm going to a conference this weekend and hoping for as good an experience as you had!

Love the pic. :)

Great post! I have not yet met in person any of my blogging friends, but I think I'm brave enough to try because of your experience. Thanks for sharing it!

How fun! I wish I knew some bloggers around here. I love my friends and family to death, but they don't really get the whole blogging thing. Glad you had fun!

First, I have to say I love your picture at the bottom of the post. You are totally one of the cool kids (not Ladies LOL) and I want to be your friend too!

Second, I felt the same way when I went to my 1st blog event. I felt understood, like I belonged. I think most Moms turn to blogging to fill a need. We read each other's lifes, share photos, talk about our joys, as well as our issues, and more than not share more info with our virtual friends thn we would with our IRL friends. I don't feel the same barriers and walls. Women are just that women - full of dreams, hopes, and yes a little madness. I love that!

Third, I am glad you decided to NOT go Wordless today =)

I just arrived in Atlanta for my first blogging/writing/etc conference and am SCARED TO DEATH. You've given me some hope. Thanks, Andrea! Proud of you for going and talking and being YOU!

I like other bloggers, they just get you! They know what blogging is all about. And they dont ask a lot of borderline rude questions about WHY you're doing it.

I've met two bloggers in read life so far, and my social anxiety was through the roof both times. However, it was tons of fun once I got over myself.

Melissa said...

Yay! So glad you wrote about the get-together. I think we have SUCH a strong group and I'm so glad you're a part of it!
