10 Reasons I Should Quit Blogging

{or really, why I want to quit}

1) Fear I sound like an idiot.

2) Afraid I will offend someone or sometwo or somethree.

3) I think I’m a lot funnier than I really am (see above).

4) I’m not a writer.

5) Don’t really have a “niche.”

6) Not sure what my “voice” sounds like.

7) I really don’t have anything worth saying.

8) Lacking technology skills: like how to navigate WordPress, what plug-ins and widgets are, don’t know code or what CSS means.

9) My motives might be selfish.

10) Afraid my new name sounds kinda lame.

11) I’m insecure…because people will see who I really am (and may not like it…gasp!).

12) Afraid I will look like a hypocrite (oh wait! I already am)

13) Afraid I’m wasting people’s time.

14) See? Apparently I can’t even count to make a list of 10. Doh!


But then I thought….

screw all that!

I’ll just keep blogging anyway.

    Hi Susan!
    Glad you stopped by. My only promise on here is to be as authentic as I possibly can. I think we need more of it! It’s scary at first, but so freeing! And about the Christianese thing…my intent was not to offend anyone (and please don’t be terrified!). I can translate and I can even speak pretty well it too ;)

    thanks for your comment yesterday Amber.
    Your list looks just like mine! Only you are braver than me and say screw all that! I, I just go back and forth and I only seem to go for it when I’m braver delusional. I have countless unfinished posts and finished ones that I talk myself out of publishing. Anyway, your transparancy motivates me.
    I was a little terrified of you coming over because I do tend write in Christianese. But thank goodness you know how to translate.I hope you can give me a little “Grace”.
    Just for the record on #8, you have me beat. You know more than I do. There is nothing more frustrating to me than to be paralyzed by my lack of computer savvy skills.
