Are you ready for the new installment of
Things Successful Blogger Do That I Do Not Do?
Lets Re-Cap First. Here is the 'Hot List' so far.
(Know whats funny/ironic/sad? I wrote it and I still can't figure out how to get on it.)
So here is Number Five in my Installment Series of…
Things Successful Bloggers Do That I Do Not Do
5. Seem to Have It All.
Thats right. Its seems like they have it all.
Even if they don't.
It sure seems like they do.
And is it just me or are all successful bloggers pretty?
And have attractive husbands? And gorgeous kids with perfect smiles and obedient, house trained pets? And beautiful homes? And seem to know each other?
Does it also seem like they are the coolest even when their kid is peeing all over themselves in Perkins or their hubby forgot their anniversary or they are eating lutefisk and lefsa for supper?
Why is it so cute when they do it?
I don't seem to remember to be laughing when my darling child decided to stuff his chicken nuggets into his underwear only to reveal it at daddy's office and then tell everyone he wanted to see 'what it felt like'.
Well, maybe I did. That's a bad example.
I remember this one time a popular blogger did a whole post about her dog. It was like 47 pictures of her dog. That's it.
And I was then convinced that I could do the same thing with my dogs and have also have 549 comments telling me how cute my dog was and how wonderful of me to talk about my dog.
Yeah, not so much.
What it boils down to is… really good, really successful bloggers, have a way of making ordinary, even lame stuff seem like it is cool.
So even if they don't have it all, they are really good at making us feel like they do.
And I kinda gotta respect that.
Upon reflection I realized… whether it is reflected in my blog or not, I feel like I have it all.
Even though I struggle every single day with my life and my role in this world, I have a husband whom I love and support, amazing kids, and a relationship with Jesus that pretty much saves me from a life of hell.
So for now, its fun to just think that they do have it all.
Because maybe the reality is…we all do.
